I Just Our Kids To Be Happy!

Reading too many negative posts on Facebook!

After reading Facebook post from friends, family, acquaintances, I sometimes feel sad.  Seems that people like to post all the negative things that have happened in their day.  I understand that things go wrong, but what about finding the positive in what happened?  I decided to ask my Facebook friends, family and acquaintances this question…

What question?

Are you a positive person or a negative person?  Here is a good way to find out, look at all your posts here on Facebook.  Count how many of your personal comments are positive and count how many are negative.  Go back about 2 or 3 months (depending on how much you are on FB, you might need to go back about 6 months).

If you find that you have more negative comments then positive, maybe you need to find something good that happened in the day to post about.  If you think more positively, your outlook on life will change!  If you look at things in a negative manor, your outlook on life will be a negative one and people will see you as a negative person!

Everyday, find one positive thing that happened and post about it!  Start it Jan. 1 and see how long you can go.  See how thinking positively can change your life!

What do you want to be when you grow up?

When you were a kid, did you know what you wanted to be when you grew up?  I had no clue and didn’t know till I was in my late 20′s.  But, what I really wanted to be, was happy!  We all want our kids to be happy when they get older.  I thought this video from TEDx Talks was very interesting and well spoken… specially by a 13 year old!

Logan LaPlante did a really good job explaining the science for being healthy and happy.

I want to be happy!

Looking through my Facebook post, I am happy to say that most of my posts are positive.  There are a few of what I would call neutral (homeschool related or politically related) and a few that have something sad or negative in it but I also have positive comments within the same post!

So, learning from 13 year old Logan LaPlante, I not only want my kids to be happy when they grow up, I want them to be happy now while they are still young!  Let our kids be kids and play!

Feedback!
