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.
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:
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!
