Pete at My GPS Camera Phone feels that LifePrints is worthy of this award. I am deeply honored. He explained to me that his wife had once mentioned starting a newspaper dedicated to good news. I told him I think she should because then she would share in the joy that I've found in writing this blog.
There is something special about being on the look out for positive ideas, people, and events. It has changed my perspective. Instead of immersing myself in what the mass media wants me to know (which apparently is mostly warnings that the world is in decline and we all want to kill each other), I go out searching for what makes each day worth living.
Chrissy, the good things are not rare, they are just undervalued and ignored by the powers that be. Somewhere along the way the media complex decided that we'd rather hear about murder and destruction than birth and peace. They made bigger profits from dragging out scandal. Uplifting stories of cooperation just weren't page turners.
My readership is modest. LifePrints is a drop in the bucket but that's okay because there are more drops like me. Collectively we can make a huge difference. Yesterday while watching a YouTube video about Dennis Kucinich I heard him echo something I've always felt in my heart. He said essentially that a mindset of war creates war and a mindset of peace creates peace.
This translates to everything we do. A mindset of negativity creates negativity. A positive blog like LifePrints fosters harmony and so on. I love what I'm doing. Every post is a pleasure to write and an exercise in faith. I cannot tell you how excited I am that others read it and find value in it. All I can say is pass on the feeling, in whatever way you chose. Keep it going around the world until the mindset of war, destruction, lack, fear and doom no longer rule the day.
I'd like to pass this award on to a few bloggers who I think are lights in the darkness. Read a few of their posts and you will quickly see what I mean.
