Give Me Some Good News Before I Go To Bed, Please
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When people ask me how I am doing, I usually say, "I'm good." I consider myself to be easy to live with, work with, and get along with. Like most people, I have worries, but they do not control my life. Do not read me scary news stories before I go to bed, however. I cannot deal with scary news stories when I am about to go to sleep. When I hear scary news stories at bedtime, I worry that something bad will happen during the night or that I will be faced with something scary when I wake up in the morning. I also worry about how my life will change as a result of these bad things that are happening. Then I quickly put the worrisome thoughts out of my mind and turn to other things.

One thing I may do is read news stories about positive things. One news story I might read may focus on the completion of a CD by one of my favorite recording artists. I might also read a story about a person who started out as a blogger and is now a motivational speaker who is regularly booked to speak at schools.

Another thing I might do before going to sleep is watch a funny movie. Fortunately, we own many funny movies, so I have a great selection to choose from. We have "Beetlejuice", "Revenge of the Nerds", "Marmaduke", and "Evolution", for example. Recently, my nighttime movie choice has been "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked". This funny movie features familiar characters and great music by singers such as Lady Gaga and Pink.

A third thing I do before going to bed is work on articles. If I have an article published, pending, or in progress, that is a good feeling. I think about that and feel happy and excited rather than worried. I think about the money I have earned up to that point, and then I imagine how much I will have several weeks from that point.

Finally, I listen to music while I clean up the kitchen. It is very difficult to focus on worries if I am singing my favorite songs and trying to get the dishes done before my soapsuds disappears.

I realize that the world is not perfect. There are people whose values are very different from mine. That does not mean that I do not deserve a good life, however. I want a good life for myself. I want others to have good lives as well. We all deserve to see our dreams come true.
