I know a couple of bloggers that always put a positive spin on things. Neither of them try to find the silver lining or act as if nothing bad is going on. They just put forth positive thoughts, "Good" thoughts, and let the reader decide whether or not to use them to make getting through the day drudgery or ecstasy, (or maybe someplace in between).
The first blog I want to mention is Beth's Blog. On my side bar I label it as Beth's Liberal Readers Digest. She posts interesting recipes, news stories, jokes, tips on just about everything that might help save money and pieces that can steer the reader towards saving the environment.
Interspersed on her pages are sayings, quotes and uplifting phrases, some written by famous people, some from a more obscure source, but all "Good", positive and carrying the ability to raise your spirits and self esteem. I'm listing her blog as "Good" for any day of the week, and I'm mentioning it to tell you about something "Good" for this Only the Good Friday post.
By the way, my friend Shelly at This Eclectic Life Blog is the originator for Only the Good Friday. Take a peek at her blog and look around. Her's is "Good" every day as well, and her idea to only post "Good" things on Friday is a "Good" one in its own rite. If you go there today, it will look like Shelly is taking a break from organizing this Good on Friday meme. But I feel it is such a "Good" thing to do, at least one day of the week, that I'll continue to post "Good" things on Fridays when I have the time. Things are getting busy as the warmer weather approaches. I can understand setting a few things aside during Summertime.
Another place I go for pure positive thoughts and tips on positive thinking, (both "Good" by the way), is Mel's Dream. Mel has these Fairies that remind us of the thoughts that run through our heads and helps us to keep ourselves of a healthy mind. The Fairy Thought of the Day, The Quote of the Week, Things That Make Me Happy and The Fairy Reading are all giving us wisdom when we read them. People who stop by and comment and constantly thank the Fairies for the reminders. I know it has saved me from Stinkin' Thinkin' about my own situation a time or two.
Mel does write about her own life here and there. She teaches us how to let it out and gather it back in and get through the things that life throws at us on a daily basis. And Beth gives us a choice on whether or not we want to read the news and feel crappy about it, or turn your outlook into a positive view. It's all "Good".
Pay a visit to these two blogs. Go there for a few days in a row and you'll see what I mean. They are diligent and change the posts pretty much daily. I believe them to be a positive force in my life and the lives of the readers who take the time to read the positive thoughts and teachings and put them to play in their own lives, and that is very "Good" to have something positive to draw from.
Excuse me, I have to go listen to the Fairies. They might have something "Good" to say.
Peace to All
