Over the past couple of years, I have noticed that the amount of negative news has increased. In contrast, the amount of positive news has diminished considerably. I truly believe that this can make us feel quite negative about how we approach life and, in turn, how life approaches us.
That being said, a slight heads up. I am, in no ways, telling you to look away from the problems at hand or around us. I wanted to start something that could help us all appreciate that life—to an extent—isn’t at the brink of extinction (or Kalyug) as we think of it; that there is hope.
Look around you—there are enough people who are doing lots of good things; there are enough signs that goodness is thriving. That’s what this blog is about.
This blog is just a way for all of us to know that something positive around us has not withered away; that all it takes is for us to open our eyes and see.
Every day, I will post a small note about one good news or event I read. Believe me, I will try to keep the post bite-sized—you can read it from the time you walk from your home to the car.
My aim—to give a reason for all of us to have a slightly more positive outlook towards life, especially when all we hear around is negative.
And who knows, maybe motivated by all the goodness around you, in the years to come, you could be written about too.
P.S: I am not a blogger; I am no writer either. But I am someone who has always tried to have a positive view towards life. We already have everything around us reminding us that nothing is enough—communal issues, violence, border issues, economic issues, pandemics etc. I am just sharing my view of Something Good!
