Happy New Year

indexLook For The Good

In the New Year, let’s resolve to get less stressed, upset, anxious about things over which we have no control. Lets have a narrower focus on our lives, loving and helping our family and friends, making our community a better place to live, to create peace and contentment.

In the New Year, let’s resolve to pay less attention to depressing stories on TV, in magazines and newspapers, and to stop focusing on what we want that we haven’t got, instead of appreciating the many blessings we do have.

In the New Year, let’s look for the good. We may have to search through a mass of negative media, but the good is there, all around us.

    I resolved to do most of those things since before the first Obama election. I've managed not only to NOT watch the news but I did it without missing it one little bit. No more talking heads with their opines, misinformation, outright lies and rhetoric, tyvm. I am much happier for it, too. srsly.

    More fun, family and friends! And cruises, if I am lucky! 😉

    Happy Nerw Year, Sandee and Zane! big hugs xoxo

    We were only saying, yesterday, that the media rarely publish good news any more. They always ended our TV News with an uplifting piece, years ago. It's a pity they still don't do that. They brought out a 'Good News' paper a while back and sales were so poor, they stopped it. It seems we love the bad stuff. We only watch the news, if there is a major story going on and we stopped buying newspapers years ago, for that reason.

    Here's hoping you have a 'Good News' year!

    Happy 2015 to all of you. I disagree with the quote. If we only look for the good and ignore the bad instead of trying to eliminate the bad, we'll have a lot more bad.

    That's what I plan on doing in 2015! Leaving my old job has already changed my life and outlook immensely – out with the toxic, in with the happy! 🙂

    Happy New Year to you, your hubby and Little Bit!

    Excellent- that about sums up my little conversation with myself this morning….
    If we cannot be positive we'll just make ourselves unhappy and have more worry wrinkles! Happy New Year!

    A Happy and very bless New Year. xoxo Catherine
