Bright Light in Dark Times

I made a promise to myself that I would remain positive even in the mist of a recession and I am happy to say that it is going well so far. I did just get over a cold and some of the work I had slowed down but I managed to keep my mind on good things. That might just be the trick, Stay focused and stay upbeat because things do eventually get better.

If I could say one thing to all the American citizens being affected by the economic slowdown and that would be to stay strong and try to be thankful for the good things in life. If we focus on that, then one day the good things will show up at our door.

No Good News on the News

It is a New Year and I am very excited about 2009. I am looking forward to a new year and glad I am alive to see it. Despite what the news reports about the economy, I have decided to focus on being happy and thankful to be alive, sane and most of all physically healthy. I mean, lets be honest, would it matter how much money we had if we were dying or mentally insane? You know the answer and that answer is No. Hell no!! If you are healthy and sane, that in itself is good news.

As a result, I have decided to pick and choose what I watch these days. I cannot allow the dire reports to infiltrate my mind and send me into a deep depression. Hey, I know the economy is not as good as it could be. I think everyone knows that now, but focusing on how bad it is, is not going to make it better.

Since I have a choice to switch off my TV or to go to another website, that is what I am doing to keep my positivity. When there is once again more good news than bad, maybe I will once again want to hear what's going on. Until then, no thanks. I will make my own good news. Maybe you might want to do that as well.
