Since when did we get so goddamn pessimistic? I mean seriously, the whole world seems to be so intent on spreading misery and negativity instead of focusing on anything good and it’s driving me crazy!
I’m so sick of seeing this negativity everywhere- in the news, on social media, it’s just everywhere. Why can’t we instead be celebrating the good things that are going on instead of commiserating the bad? The world is full of horrible things and people, that’s a fact, but I don’t understand why we are solely focusing on this lately. Think of all of the good things that are happening instead- we’ve had breakthroughs in cancer research, India planted 50 million tree saplings in just 24 hours last year, virtual reality is now a viable form of entertainment and Leo finally won his Oscar!
I feel like screaming whenever I see yet another report on how Trump is ruining the world or more reports on deaths across the globe. It breaks my heart that this world is full of such tragedies and makes me feel incredibly helpless, but to be honest I would rather focus on the good things that have happened- something which the news seldom seems to do.
One of my goals for 2017 is to surround myself with less negativity and instead try to find more positive inspirations in the world. I want to take in optimism and help inspire and motivate others at the same time. Friends, fellow bloggers, family, even strangers- we could all use a little more positivity in our lives, don’t you agree?
