I have had enough. My full is beyond filled. My head feels like it is stuffed and close to ex or im-ploding.
Here is the main thing I have learned: that no matter how "informed" I am, it doesn't matter to my life, except that it makes my life more anxious, more fear-based, less joyful.
The "news" does nothing for me but bad things. The "news" makes me sit still and worry, when I could be doing something good for myself and those around me. The "news" makes me make decisions out of fear rather than making choices that are about growth, expansion, learning.
So I am declaring a long-term Negative Media Fast.
I am slowing down and fasting.
I am hoping you will join me.
Stop reading* how terrible everything is and start working in the right here, right now of your life to make everything beautiful and joyful.
(*This includes not just hard news sites but facebook and twitter feeds and blogs that are filled with, what people think, is "essential and informative" or even just their negative attitudes that do nothing but feed the already unhelpful, wider dialogue out there.)
Stop believing that we are going to hell in a hand basket and weave something better in your local, immediate life.
Think outside the Box of Ick.
Part of the issue for me is Morning Routine. I read emails and look at headlines. (I already do not have television in the house and have not watched tv news for many years.)
So I know I need New & Better Morning Routines, and for that reason, I looked for some Positive Happy News sites and found a few to share.
If you know of others, please link in the comments.
But for now:
Positive News (our of the UK)
I am putting these on my toolbar so I can go to them even more easily than "hard news" sites, which I am getting rid of and would have to "search" for.
