I very seldom watch, listen to or read the news.
I like to stay in my 'happy bubble' as much as I can.
I find that anything I truly need to know (and even stuff I don't)
I overhear enough about at work.
as I am opening up the Internet each morning
and in those few seconds between
my 'home page' and my blog
my eyes unintentionally scan the headlines of
the news and that which classifies as 'newsworthy'.
This morning's headlines read:
"Nuclear Crisis: Japan braces for the worst"
"Japan weather hinders quake relief"
"Is drinking alcohol healthier than you think?"
"Whitney Houston sending daughter to rehab"
and something about Suri Cruise that I didn't finish reading...
(How can such sad and devastating news
such as about Japan
be printed beside the
latest 'problems' of celebrities???)
So when I accidentally read too much in the headlines,
I pop on over to Happy News to find the good in the world today.
(I've posted about this site before ~ love it!)
This mornings headlines read:
"Restaurant Owner in Japan Gives Food for Free"
"Japanese Student Finds Family Alive on Youtube"
"William and Kate Ask Wedding Guests To Help Charities"
"Man Sells Possessions to Help Kids in Africa"
"Dozens of People Perform CPR to Save One Heart Attack Victim"
I still learn about the happenings of tragedies such as Japan
(important to know)
but I read about the positive sides as well!
I have officially changed my 'home page' to happynews.com
I should have done it a long time ago.
"Happiness is always here, but covered by
thoughts, desires and fears."
And that's my 'Thought For The Day'.
Happy Thursday to you!
