Extra Read All About It

Updated on July 18, 2013

It's Time

To turn the bad into good

We know how

We all know we should

Why don't we is beyond me

Lets start with one example and work from there

Your day begins

With or without you doing anything

So for the sake of an arguement you wake up feeling good and had a great nights sleep

Then you sit down to breakfast and turn on the t.v.

You instantly see shocking stories of tradegy and raging wild fires

Then the news even gets better

Drug use is on the rise and a prison riot

Now soon after a half an hour your mood would of changed from pleasant to sad

Off to work and now you went from sad to mad

Busy all day at work you went from mad to mean

Coming home sitting down to dinner and you want to relax

You go on the computer to take your mind off it all

You read posts of an out break of a flu epidemic

Turn to another story

Risk of lung cancer increased

Where ever you go you can't hide

Bad days lead to nightmares and loss of sleep

There has to be more to life

Than all this garbage and bleep.bleep,bleep

I say it's time to balance the scale

To give a little goodness and see the bad stuff

Go back where it belongs in the trash with all the waste

We need to turn on our imagination and make things better

There will always be bad peope in the world fact

There will always be more good in the world than bad fact

Not every day is going to be a good day fact

It is up to us to watch,read and listen to the news fact

It is up to us how we choose to spend our day happy or sad fact

We can change our world for the better by helping others fact

So heres an idea

Let's start today

Looking at the news in a different way

Find some good and make it better

Share it with others and let them help

Before we know it we have our own paper

Putting our own twist on each day that happens

Leaving a feeling that you can't resist

One that we enjoy

We see changes no matter how small

They make other people feel good too

Soon we have made something very special

A world that begins with excitement and carrys on

To each and every one of you

Extra read all about it

Good news and good people

Making our world better

One that will make our children proud

      Good evening dream-on.

      Complex'ly. . . My day begins - with plan prepared in advance , working on certain project/ accomplishment. No desire/ wasting time watching TV reports. Why shall I allow anyone to invade my innermost self?!- dictating what I need to know ?! I made. Up my mind to be happy "today" - no need to be sad or mad . Rejecting negativity watch/listen to/ talk . Can't let my feelings to be influenced, anyway feelings can't be worth of trust- don't go by feelings. Rather concentrate on positive, good news, someone's life make brighter, pointing to wholesomeness out of my treasure .

      Have a gorgeous day. There's always sunshine ;above the clouds, or on the other side of the globe.
