Spread Good News, Celebrate Small Victories

By Samantha McKenzie

The good news is there’s always some good news to share. Yes, there’s bad news. And yes, the bad news sometimes sparks our interest the most. Let’s face it, human beings are drawn to listen and read about the drama that goes on around the world. It’s shocking. It’s far-fetched. It’s alluring and it draws us in.

So go ahead, talk about the good news in your life and celebrate the sweet victories.

Make it a daily activity to share one piece of good news. If it’s not your own, share something good you read about in the news. Practice passing on uplifting stories that add value to another person’s life.

When the “how was your day” question gets asked, don’t start off with the mess that happened at work. Instead, begin with your good news. “I got through my entire to-do list!”

Start positive. When the voice on the telephone says, “Hey, what have you been up to?” follow with a small victory. “I started working out again!”

Keep the good news flowing. Come up with new intros. Find something great to talk about and enjoy the positive energy that comes with it.

    Thanks, Samantha on this article. I fall short when it comes to thinking positive and starting off with good news. I am working on that. I love making other people laugh, I will remember to give the good news first from now on. Giving Thanks to the Lord first each morning starts my day. What could possibly go wrong after that?
