THE GOOD NEWS


Good morning… Read a great article by my friend Ian Gray.  http://dissociatedpress.com/2012/06/america-in-decline-10-reasons-you-should-start-studying-mandarin-today/  It might stir your pot up a little.  give you food for thought.

It lead me to wondering, where the heck is ‘Good News’?   So much negative news in the papers and media, with only a dab of some good news, which leads me to wonder, as I have wondered before, what keeps us hook on reading about disaster, trouble, horror, and a plethora of other negative news that leaves us fearful and all riled up?

So… I went for a brief google venture looking for on line media that had ‘Good News’ .  Here, what I found.  http://www.happynews.com/index.aspxhttp://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/, http://goodnewsdaily.com/, http://www.goodnewsgazette.net/.   Which isn’t say there is not good news all around the world, only that you have to seek it out.

And, it seems that we are conditioned to let ‘bad’, negative news, fill the press.  If ya want some good news take a gander at the above sites and see what it does for you.

AND,  you could always make a list of your good news daily.  Kinda like noticing what you’re grateful for.

The good news is

you’re breathing

maybe that’s the

best news you got.

 

If you’re reading this

You’re seeing too

How lucky is that?

And thinking

 

Thinking about

your goodness

cause that’s what

I’m inviting you to do

 

Right now.

Gathering up

All the goodness

that surrounds you

 

The gratitude of your

every moment.

That’s some damn

Good New right there.

 

Maybe you’ll pet the dog

or let the sun hit you just right.

Maybe you’ll hug your

loved ones and give a cherished

 

moment to the warmth

of that feeling of love

Breath that beauty right in

See it in their eyes

 

Let that news fill you up

cause you might have

a lonely moment, a sad one

and all ya got is the news

 

From a few days ago

that the sun hit you just right

and the dog loves you unconditionally

and your loved ones held you

 

In a cherished moment

and you need that news

to remember you’re good

You’re Great, you’re loved

 

That is some wonderful news

That’s the news worthy of

hearing, and holding within

when the external news hurts

 

Share that good news.
