News Overload: To News or Not to News

We made it through the week lovelies and I’ve never felt so strongly about disconnecting from the news! I used to get my daily round up of news from certain apps and one news station that seems to be struggling for their lives. Oh OK I know I can be a little dramatic…but even Facebook has people dropping off from looking at their own news feeds.

One of my friends who’s living in Singapore keeps saying I am turning off FB for awhile. I used to love going to Facebook to see what you are all eating for dinner or how your kids are doing. And I agree it’s very important to have somewhere to vent, but venting through our status updates...are we being heard?

So, you must be asking yourself what are my political views? Let’s just say... I’m all about treating others equal, fairly, with respect and life is hard enough so how could I tell someone else what to do? (Does this make me a liberal? This actually makes me born in Canada:)

Last year was a difficult campaign year, but is my only option to tune out of the news and then tune back in when I can stop myself from throwing the remote at the TV? When did we become a State where we keep looking at each other to make sense of the headlines. 

What can I do about it? I'm deciding to wake up every morning and continue to see the world with positivity and light. And also, to teach our young Bella the same. There is so much to be thankful for in this world and I want to help my family, friends and community with those feelings. I can end each night by highlighting my gratitude and recall the wonderful things that happened to us.

Repeat after me "Don't give up. It is normally the last key on the ring which opens the door." and "Don't get stressed. What is really important always finds a way of revealing itself." Paulo Coelho

Let’s continue to learn and to grow. It won’t always feel like this, just takes a little time as we adjust to the new normal. We just might need to keep our seat belts fastened as this could be a bumpy ride. How can you wake up and appreciate your days? Do you remember to stop and see the beauty?
