How often do you see a positive news story? Once, maybe twice a week? A glance at the latest news on the internet and television could make anyone cringe with the negativity that oozes out of it. Let’s not even begin with the tabloids! The magazines that line walls in grocery stores are the ultimate source of hostility.
I decided that I am through focusing on the negative that is forced upon me daily. Instead, I wanted to focus the attention on the positive news that is happening in our world. There are so many stories that have not and will never make the news because they are so positive and will not generate buzz and revenue. It is quite unfortunate that this is the current case and state of our world. Scare tactics will always generate more commotion than a kind story. It is no wonder so many people hate the world we live in! All that is focused on is the multiple conflicts going on in the world. Why is it so difficult to focus on the positive news going on? Oh, that’s right, it does not make money. Can the media, for just a few stories, focus on something that makes people proud to be living in this era? Can the media focus on something that helps us grow for the better?
Knowing that this is something inconceivable for media outlets, I concluded that I should help people see that there is kindness still left in humanity. I want people to get a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing that good things STILL HAPPEN! I want others “Faith in Humanity Restored”. I know that we as the human race work better together when positivity surrounds us. This drove me to an idea I am in love with.
I am determined to showcase different positive news on my blog every week or so. I want people to start noticing that there is more to the world than unhappiness. That we can persevere and do anything we set our minds to. What we all need is to be a little more inspired in our lives. With all the pessimism encompassing us, we end up being less enthused about our lives and end up falling into a rut of misery. This is not the way we should be living our one and only chance at life.
Here are my favorite, recent news stories that display many positive aspects lacking in current media:

Stay tuned for more positivity. I believe all humans need to stay positive to function well.
May all your days be optimistic and exciting!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend,
