I’ll be honest I don’t watch the news. It’s too depressing. I only read the funnies in the paper because who wants to read more about how the world is falling apart, the stocks are falling, etc? You might, but I don’t.
What do I read? Well I check out Happy News everyday to get my dose of what’s going on in the world.
“What’s Happy News?” you ask.
Happy News is: “Real News, Compelling Stories, Always Positive”
They believe virtue, goodwill and heroism are hot news so they bring up-to-the-minute news to lift spirits and inspire lives. Citizen Journalists report positive stories from around the world.
This site is easy to navigate too. Just use the side menu to check out International, National, Business/Money, Health, Science & Technology, Environment, Arts & Entertainment, Sports, Heroes, and Opinions & Editorials.
If you scroll down the main page you can get some headlines for those sections. And you’ll see their quote of the day section – when I was there the quote was:
“Happiness is not in our circumstance but in ourselves. It is not something we see, like a rainbow, or feel, like the heat of a fire. Happiness is something we are.” – John B. Sheerin
I think you will like this change of pace from all the horrible things happening in the world. We’ve forgotten as a community to report the good and uplifting moments in life.
