I'm talking about the negativity one. You know, where somebody says "I've been seeing a lot of negativity in my news feed lately..." & then the propose posting pictures of flowers or baby animals or superheroes on their timelines, to "...flood Facebook with positive images."
While I'm all for an overall change in attitude & I wholeheartedly embrace focusing on positivity, I can't help but wonder, wouldn't we be more effective if we posted pictures of the beautiful, positive, good things in our own worlds? Or perhaps even just a quick shout out to something (even mildly) good that happened in our day?
Don't get me wrong, I applaud the sentiment behind the positivity movement. I love looking at pics of cute kittens or frolicking puppies just as much as the next gal. I just happen to believe that showing the good in our own lives will accomplish so much more.
Sort of like we're actually showing proof that we can find something good in our own personal existences. Like even when we're having a really crappy day (or sometimes year), we can still reflect on what has brought us personally, even the tiniest bit of happiness.
It's that whole perpetual optimist part of me. I strongly believe that if you just try, you'll be able to find at least one good thing a day to mention to others. Even if it is "Well, I didn't get hit by a bus getting out of bed this morning."
Hopefully you'll agree with me on this & try to start posting pictures or even just statuses of good things from your own world. And maybe, just maybe we can start a positivity revolution that will be the first step to something even bigger & better (for the whole world).
So, in that (long winded) spirit, I'd like to post a couple of pics that has recently made me very happy. These things didn't actually happen yesterday or even today, but I saw the pics this morning & they brought not only a smile to my face, but the memories warmed my heart.
Aloha hugs (& bubbles my loves),
