don’t cry over spilled milk
I never watch the news. I never read news and I try to at least stay away from getting in contact with news first thing in the morning. This is a choice I’ve taken. Not the most popular or appreciated lifestyle at the university I’m studying at, but something that is nothing less than life changing for me. I know I can’t escape the news and I of course want to know what’s going on. I also know they will come to me sooner or later.
What I find disturbing about the news is what they choose to feature and expose. I am the kind of person who believe in the power of the mind, visualizing, working on ourselves from within and so on. I believe attitude can change a life and that attitude towards life can be practiced. I know for a fact how I work myself. No one has a friction free life, but how we choose to tackle those bumps is what matters. I believe that positivity is contagious and that negativity attract and generates more negativity.
Why do the news always choose to inform us on all the negative, scary, sad and terrible things going on when there is so much good in the world. So many beautiful things happen every day. People do good things for one another, businesses become successful and wonderful inventions are created. I want to read more about that. I want to see more of how far mankind has taken us and feel hopeful about the future.
Do I want to turn the blindside towards reality and live in a pink bubble? No I don’t. I just don’t believe that exposing and in worst case binging in world crises will make me a better person. I get worried, sad and angry which in turn will affect my mood which affect the people around me and what I put out there. I want to believe that trying to be positive will make me a better person, a kinder friend and person to be around. Most importantly my actions become my children’s role model. I believe that what my children see will affect them and I want to bring up people with an open mind and kind heart, hoping they will adapt and recycle.
