The other day, I was scrolling through my newsfeed and was struck by the overwhelming negativity of so many status updates.
I fucking hate traffic. My life life sucks.
I’m going to jump off a bridge if I don’t get an A on this biology paper. I’m a fucking seniorrrr.
Worst. day. everrrr. I got a parking ticket and the line at Starbucks was out the door.
It went on and on. And Twitter isn’t safe from the nagging, negative tweets either. I agree that we all have bad days and are completely entitled to our own emotions - but really? People just bitch and moan via social media about insignificant things, and I don’t like it.
I wanted to read something different, so I asked for it.
And just like that, comments started popping up.
And more still..
Reading every comment made me genuinely happy. From being with someone battling an illness to something as wonderfully simple as eating a delicious pastry: It was all positive.
Life is good, my friends. Don’t take it for granted. Yes, there will always be negative things and people in the world that can bog you down. But I promise you, that if you look for the good in life – you’ll find it.
Let’s keep it going – Tell me something good or happy that’s happened in your life today. I woke up without an alarm and then enjoyed a nice cup of coffee in my PJs. I have nowhere to be today, and that is wonderful!
