Where is the Good News?
As I scan the recent headlines and listen to the news, I have yet to hear many feel good stories, or human interest pieces. Piracy, murder, job loss, and the swine flu dominate our lives, as I am just looking for a small story that would illicit good news.
Stories about Susan Boyle and her singing success have been uplifting. I wish we could be exposed to more positive stories such as hers.
I have sent press releases out about our small company and the successes and good things happening to us right now.
But I wonder why they don’t frequently get picked up by news outlets. I realize that my story as a stay-at-home mom turned business owner with her product now on the shelves of a major retail store is not nearly as exciting as the pandemic sweeping our world.
But I would love to see and hear more stories that would inspire and uplift me. Our society focuses so much on the bad things happening around us, I am doing my best to keep my chin up and keep my business rolling along in a positive manner.
Times are tough for all of us, and I am going to continue to make a conscientious effort to seek out positive stories and to share my own story that may inspire others.
