focus on the good

We live in such a crazy world.
Where we can hear about news from all the way across the world.
And everyone shares their opinions and fights and argues with each other about what's happening.
And so many of those things are bad and scary.
People get hurt and some people die.
But what we don't always hear about is the good that is happening.
I had a teacher theorize that the news tells us about so many bad things because those are the events that are rare and out of the ordinary.
While it is good to recognize the bad, it is more important to focus on the good.
Because if we only pay attention to the bad we will get bogged down in it.
Hearing about the good helps us to remain positive and inspired to "be the good we wish to see in the world".
So here is my report of the good news in the world to break up the monotony of all the bad.

>This woman who graduated from the college where she was abandoned as a newborn.

>This mother who is seriously superwoman.

>This story about paying hundreds in pennies is more just to give you a laugh. Especially the last sentence of the story.

>I could never imagine doing what these two men did.

>It's amazing the effort people will go to to save an animal.

>And the "goodest" of all is the incredible amount of love given to complete strangers that have had tragedy fall upon them.


  1. "The city can keep the change". I'm DYING. Thank you so much for this post. It reminds me a lot of a quote by Mr. Rogers, who said: "When I was a boy, and when I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping'". Focusing on the good will always be so much more powerful than the evil. Thanks for sharing xX

    1. ooh I love that quote. It's so true. Evil people want us to believe there is only evil and to succumb to it. But there's more than evil.


Thanks for your feedback! :)
