The last thing any of us need on any given morning is to wake up and turn on any sort of media only to be confronted with more bad things happening in our world. The media has become so sensational and so driven towards bad news that I stopped closely following it years ago. Only occasionally when things come up in conversation or I happen to glance at something that comes up online do I actually pay attention. Even then, I tell myself, wow, we’re just all told these awful things to make us feel powerless to change them, aren’t we?
Fear not, my friends, as there are actually plenty of good things going on in the world! In fact, there are sites dedicated to good news. Perhaps the most famous of these sites is The Good News Network. But, the Good News Network is not alone – far from it. The TODAY Show has a great Good News section, too. There’s also Happy News.
Sadly, good news sites seem to be dropping away. At one time, ABC News had their own good news section. But now, it just redirects to the main US News page – although they do often have positive news stories. Even Fox News had a good news section… it’s a dead page now…
Still, there are plenty of other good news sites out there. At the very least, start your day by reading the positive things. It will have a positive effect on your whole outlook on life. Sharing them could bring others some smiles, too! So, turn that frown upside and focus on life’s little victories. You might find yourself quite a bit more upbeat.
