Good News Monday: Let’s Share The Happy!

One of my friends posted this on Facebook over the weekend: “”The bad news is people are crueler, meaner and more evil than you’ve ever imagined. The good news is, people are kinder, gentler and more loving than you’ve ever dreamed.”  I believe every word of that to be true.

I was telling one of my friends about Good News Monday and how we do it every Monday and invite people to call in and share something good that’s recently happened in their lives as a way to encourage each other and to show each other that there are good and simple pleasures in life.  Her response?  “There is always something good and we don’t have too far to look.”

A couple of months ago when I was having a particularly trying day I posted:

I feel bad for those who take things so seriously and for those who are so insecure with themselves that they feel they have to be mean. Being petty and mean never got anybody anywhere in the end. Life is short. Be kind and kindness will find you. Accept people and things that are different than you. Love. Step outside of your little box and allow yourself to explore. Hope. Loosen up and let yourself laugh. Find humor even in things that appear humorless. Don’t be such a fuddy-duddy. Dream. Let things roll off your shoulders. Smile. Instead of spending all your time focusing on the negative and complaining, look for the good and run with it. Count your blessings. Be thankful for each day that you wake up because it means you’re alive. And alive is so much better than the alternative.

If you think about it, we really do have so much good in our lives to be thankful for.  And I’d like to know what your good is.  Your good news can be big or it can be small.  Give me a call at 607-720-9801, leave a comment on Facebook or write your comment below.

Let’s start sharing the happy!
