It’s okay to admire people, places and things.
When we are feeling down, sad or grief-stricken, it can be very hard to see the positive in life. Our focus is on ourselves, our feelings of sorrow or loss, and even if we desire to feel happy, we may not be able to summon those feelings.
But, when we focus our attention elsewhere, we take ourselves out of our sorrow (and out of our own head), we lift our emotional state. And a simple way to do this is via admiration.
