Feel Good Story of the Day

Feel good story of the day? Is there such a thing? In a time when we are bombarded with stories of doom and gloom, it would sure be valuable to have a place to turn to for stories that are actually positive and uplifting.

Feel Good Story of the Day!!!

I believe we are what we think. If we're always thinking about "worst case scenarios," tragedies and disasters well guess what? That's how we begin to live our lives. We start living in such a way that we keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. We expect bad things to keep happening. We start looking for tragedy. Usually, when you look for bad things, sure enough you find them. Then, because these bad things are foremost in your mind, we are able to find the doom and gloom with ease. It's as if the bad things reproduced in the blink of an eye.

Fortunately, with some practice, we are able to adjust our thinking to be more perceptive of the positivity that surrounds us. Is there still such a thing as positivity? YES!

I've challenged myself to find at least one feel good story of the day. (I have no problem finding a feel bad story of the day!) 

How about you? ....

Are you ready to find more positivity?

Are you tired of negativity?
Do you want your life to make a difference?
Do you want to be happy? TRULY happy?
Are you surrounding yourself with enough hope, humor and encouragement?
Do you want to feel GOOD about who you are and where your life is headed?

If you answered "Yes" to any or all of these questions, then you're in the right place! On this site you will find a feel good story of the day and then some. To me, being positive does not mean living the life of Polyanna. It doesn't mean wearing blinders to reality. To me, developing a positive attitude means acknowledging that there is negativity and darkness in the world and choosing to find the good, rather than succumbing to a life of drudgery.

There are enough miserable people in the world. I choose not to be one of them. What I know is feeling stressed out, depressed and angry never made a person or situation better. 

I once read this somewhere - I forget where, but it has stuck with me:

  • To be happy for an hour -- take a nap.
  • To be happy for a day -- go shopping.
  • To be happy for a week -- take a vacation.
  • To be happy for a month -- get married.
  • To be happy for a year -- inherit a fortune.
  • To be happy for a lifetime -- help others.

I don't agree with everything on this list, but I believe the author is exactly right about how to be happy for the rest of your life. Lasting contentment, the most satisfying kind of happiness, can always be found in helping others. And it's a secret that many people have yet to discover. 

I'm hopeful that you will find The Know Stress Zone to be an all-around positive site. I want you to feel free to share your feel good story of the day, your wisdom on how you handle stress, or any other positive news you wish to share so that you too can help others on their journey to a feel good life.

I promise as you help others feel good, you always help yourself!

     Your attempt may fail but never fail to make an attempt!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
