WHY IS NO NEWS CONSIDERED GOOD NEWS?
No news is considered good news because it seems that all news is bad news. I have taken a stance against negativity. With the exception of listening to sad music while heartbroken, I refuse to consume anything that isn’t positive. Its impossible to do but I try to avoid negativity.
We are the age of misinformat- sorry, I mean information. Why not expose viewers to more than the normal unhappy news? There is so much that goes on in the world that should be promoted. How many channels must share their influenced perspective of “The News”.
We get it! 49% of people liked the lady. 49.1% liked the dude. 100% of the people didn’t like either candidate but had to vote for what they would consider “the lesser of two evils”. Do we have nothing else to report?
I believe “fake news” is a real issue. I know that because I heard about it on the news. Seems legit, right? I found myself removing many news sources from my timeline because the negative post are draining. And thats coming from someone who isn’t an empath.
Many people start their day by having the news on as background noise. People literally start their day with terrible news like rapes, murders, kidnaps, fires, babies trapped in cars, political nonsense, etc. I would love to offer a breath of fresh air with upbeat positive news.
The “Notes To Self” socks were inspired by Laura Schmidt to give the wearer positive affirmations to start their day. Why start your day with bad news?
Maybe it’s routine but I don’t think the weather or traffic is a good enough reason to endure that level of negativity before your morning coffee. Unless its Demetria Obilor. I don’t even live in Vegas but I still occasionally watch a clip of her reporting traffic. I’d even consider watching a NickelBack music video if she were in it. I digress.
Routine isn’t a good reason in my book. I’m a strong believer that tradition stunts growth. Be aware of what you consume, not just food but information. What you feed grows. What you are around is what you’ll be. What you consume is what you become. Be open. Be Conscious. Be Better. Be positive.
Make conscious informed decisions. If you believe in “The Secret”, you would know it isn’t wise to bombard yourself with negativity. You unfollow social media profiles that are negative, yet you turn your television to a news station. You do so because you want to be informed. I believe that we should sprinkle a little good along with the bad.
I intend on having short segments on the radio and TV. Of course I’ll need producers to consider taking a shot with me but it’s just a small one. My small weekly segment would be promoting positive news. I will call it “180 to Awesome”. It will be 180 seconds (three minutes) of good news.
I will be reaching out to stations (radio and television) to request a small segment of positivity on their programs. My goal isn’t to make the world a better place because better is subjective. I’ll just focus on making the world a more positive place.
*This is not a diss to any tv or radio stations (especially the stations that would air me) just my thoughts and intentions.
Please comment and tell me what kind of positive news you would like to start your day to!
