I sailed through most of my life sporting rose-colored glasses. I rarely watched the news or read the newspapers. It's not that I didn't want to be aware of current events, it's that for the most part media focused on the bad stuff in life. Stuff I didn't want to know about.
Unfortunately, as much as I love my job at the library, it behooves me to be somewhat savvy about what's going on in the world. So every morning, I now surf CNN. I'm often appalled by the headlines alone. Many of the stories are horrifying. I really don't want to know that mankind is capable of such atrocities. Lately, I've been feeling a little depressed. I blame the news. The 'bad' news that is. So I'm slipping on my rose-colored glasses for the next few days. I'm adopting Monty Python's "Always Look On The Bright Side of Life" as my theme song. I'm asking you to help me adopt a merrier attitude.
Share some good news with me. Something about you. Your professional life. Your family life. Or something uplifting about someone you know. As Chicago sang... Make Me Smile!
Meanwhile, for your listening pleasure.. my new theme song!
