Matthew 7:7

“Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime's work, but it's worth the effort.”




Going through a stressful period in my life, constantly bombarded with bad news both from the news media and life in general, I was looking on the internet for websites with good news or sites on being "Happy". I was dismayed at the number of sites that were highly commercialized, solely out to sell their book or set of motivation tapes. If they were not obviously commercial sites, they had some sort of hidden agenda.  

Was I the only one wanting help on being more happy, looking for help changing my perspective? I began to record the sites that helped me, the bits of wisdom, and compiled them in one place. (I have tried to note the original source when possible and if there are any incorrect credits or any quotes not credited, please let me know.)

Another issue I had was the biased media and reporting toward bad news. In reading a story, the reporter always twisted the story with a negative slant. Why couldn't the story be written with a positive slant? Just for fun, I started revising stories with a positive ending, focusing on the positive rather than the negative. The result is this site.
