What I cannot believe is that the news media focuses on the fact that he wears black shoes! So what? It just blows my mind that his shoes would be a focus rather than the man.
While standing in line at the check out yesterday, I saw that, once again, the rag mags exploit anyone they can. It seems there is a new TV series entitled "Splash" where celebrities dive from incredible heights. Kim Kardashian is gaining a lot of weight with her pregnancy. This one is high, another is getting a divorce and another bought or sold a jillion dollar home. Who cares? How will these subjects affect my life? They won't!
I don't watch the news anymore except to try and catch the weather at times. Too much sensationalism and negativity and I don't want or need that in my space.
Why don't we focus on the good stuff? What a wonderful person Pope Francis is, how beautiful our spring weather is/will be, people that are doing good things, our friends and family, laughter and love, gratitude for all we have, our health and abilities to cook, bake, garden, hug, decorate, walk, run, eat too much, nap, buy ourselves flowers, perform a random act of kindness, check on an elderly person, share a meal, take a plate of cookies to someone....you could add to the list I know!
I'm a firm believer in what we think about, we bring about. Perhaps if each of us chooses to focus on the good stuff, we can change our little corners of the world ~ wanna try?
P.S. The woman and the kid (upstairs) returned late Saturday night. Immediately, my body tensed. I am
really working on being positive about this situation!
