Sharing a few happy thoughts...

It's been a weird few days. I had family visiting (LOVED it) and yet, every interaction with someone in the outside world ended up with me scratching my head wondering how so many narcissists can exist in this world without the universe imploding.

Last week, I created a really cool calendar of things to blog about and when, and somehow I lost it. Then, today, I got an email saying that my blog server had been updated, so I logged on and realized that I lost a bunch of comments. So if you commented on my blog recently, and you don't see it, my apologies. I promise I didn't delete it on purpose. :)

So how do those two thoughts go together?

It made me think about happy thoughts and the need to share more of them. As I was getting angry over watching some really selfish people do some really selfish things to others, then to find a lot of my plans going awry, I realized that my anger and frustration doesn't do anyone any good. I can complain about narcissists all day long, but a narcissist is not going to read my complaint and think, "wow, I really am a narcissist. I should stop." And all the good people reading my complaints just get frustrated at the narcissists, and that doesn't do them any good!

I could also complain about all the various things that have just gone wrong in the past few days, and while I could get sympathy, the reality is, it doesn't do anything to fix the situation.

Which is why I'm going to happy thoughts mode. A lot of bad stuff is out there. If you scroll through Facebook today, you can read all about people's horrible happenings. And some joyful ones, like my friend just became a grandma for the second time to a super cute baby! So I'm choosing to think on the happy things. I'm ignoring the negative garbage, and I'm re-filling my good news happy tank.

What fills your good news happy tank? Share yours, and maybe between all of us, we can brighten everyone's day! If you look at the pictures, those are some of my happy tank pictures. I don't know why, but there's something about taking pictures of pretty flowers that makes me happy. I hope people will look at them and see a little beauty that will give them a smile.
