Some Good News for a Change (5/11/09)

May 11, 2009
We could all use some good news nowadays. Here's a great source for a little positive inspiration.

Sometimes it’s hard to see the forest for the trees. We get so caught up in the bad news being spewed from the news each day that it seems like there’s nothing good in this world.


I beg to differ.


A lot of good news has been celebrated in my family recently – the most notable this past weekend, when friends and family gathered to celebrate a grandparent’s 90th birthday. Seeing her smiling face as friends from near and far gathered together to celebrate her life is enough to make even the grinchiest grinch smile, if only for a minute.


If you need a little smile or some positive inspiration, check out the Good News Network. This Web site, a channel of AOL News, shares positive stories, videos and photos that you might not have heard about – such as the 83-year-old grandma who teaches yoga; or the community gardens sprouting up across the country. If you need a break from some of the gloom and doom talk, I urge you to check it out.
