Read the paper…listen to the news lately? The headlines are enough to make you want to crawl back into bed and bury yourself under the blankets.The economic forecast is bleak and miserable…According to the news media, we are heading for something worse than the Great Depression.
You know what I say to all that..ENOUGH ALREADY! I want to wake up tomorrow morning and hear some good news because there are some good things happening out in the great big world …BUT as someone who has written for a newspaper…I know that nothing makes headlines faster than sensational news. That’s why the guy who robbed people at the ATM last week is front page news ( why not add some more fuel to the fire ) and the kid who gathered cans of food for the homeless is a tiny little blurb.
According to the medical experts people suffer worse from depression and other physical ailments when they are nervous about the economy…So why not insist the News Media stop the scare tactics and let us take each day as it comes. Most of us know what’s happening in this country, we’re tightening our belts in preparation for leaner times but we still want to live. We have so much to be grateful for and we want to express our gratitude for the things that are going RIGHT in our lives.
Wow…I feel better already!
