Because happiness is not just about what we do, it’s also about what we don’t do, and about what we avoid.
I have decided to avoid certain types of news. No more…
🚫 Sensationalized headlines
🚫 News that tell me how I should feel or think
🚫 Echo chambers where no one has differing opinions
🚫 Any news outlet that tells me an entire group of people is “this” or “that”
🚫 “Maybe” news (“Maybe this will happen,” “We think this might happen”)
🚫 Red-in-the-face or crying newscasters… come on.
🚫 Headlines with the words “slams,” “tears into,” or other immaturity
🚫 Headlines with “let’s not forget,” or “daily reminder”
I’m really surprised the news has become at best entertainment, at worst propaganda to make us all feel anxious and on-edge. It’s to our detriment.
But I won’t let it get me down. I live in a beautiful country and I am blessed to be here 🤗🦅
Take care and God bless,
