I haven’t watched the news for the past ten years. I don’t read the newspaper either because I don’t want or need to know about all the bad stuff happening around the globe. My life is about creating good stuff.
Do I miss big things? Never. Somehow I stay current to the major happenings in the world. If something grabs me, I can always jump on the net and delve into it.
I do quite fine without the daily reports of the murders, robberies, and accidents that have happened in my town, my country and around the world. I don’t want to know the details and horrors of all that.
It’s not that I am naive and gleefully walking through life ignoring that bad things happen, BUT… the world is filled with both good and bad. And while it is important to be informed about something that might be a danger or have impact on me and mine, I don’t need to be constantly wallowing in the world’s misery.
I want to see the beauty, surround myself with joy, and laugh and enjoy my family, friends, and life!
I know that my life is more joyful, and happier since I quit being deluged with the constant stream of bad news. Who wouldn’t want that?
