The Good News

Welcome to The Good News! A little slice of the Internet dedicated to sharing good news and inspiring hope that the world is a better place than it seems. My aim is to not erase the important current events that do require attention and action, but to at least create a small trickle of goodness…

Book Recommendations

Hi! Long time no see. This is a super random post, but I’m putting it out there anyway. If you know me, you might know that I like to read. Thing is, I don’t do it all the time. What happens is I suddenly get the urge to read, read a ton of books really…

Note to Self: Job Hunting Edition

Hi! Long time no see. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. My AmeriCorps term ends on June 29th and then I’ll hopefully have another job lined up. It’s been a heart-wrenching and stressful thing for me to think about and plan for and I’ve wanted to share why that is the…

a quote for your Monday

Today I hope

This Valentine’s Day I hope that you remember to buy yourself flowers. I hope, in a day wrapped in romanticism and cupids, you remember above all else that there are more types of love than what’s advertised.

Erica, you better read this

For her 20th birthday Erica jokingly asked for a blog post that was “20 Reasons Why Erica Is The Best On The Earth”. Unfortunately for her, she’s not getting that. Why? 1. I was too lazy to write down more than 10 reasons. 2. This is 3 days late, so it’s technically not her birthday….

Sometimes it just feels

Hi. Happy Monday. This is sort of a letter to myself. I needed it today and maybe you do too. 12/11/17 Doing really scary things doesn’t always feel scary. Sometimes it just feels like a bad idea. Like “what was I ever thinking?!” kind of bad. Sometimes it just feels like an option. Oh, I…

Three

If you can’t do anything else today, at least do these things: Appreciate the heck out of the breath in your lungs. Take a deep breath that fills your chest and stomach and then slowly release it. Smile at anybody. A friend, a coworker, a family member, a cashier, yourself in the mirror. Give yourself…

Or the storm

When there are dark clouds on the horizon, When there is the tell-tale charge of lightning in the air, When the birds flee and the mammals take cover, You can be one of two things: The shelter Or The storm

I wrote about love

I do not write about love because I do not have the words for it. I do not write about love because it does not occupy my headspace. I do not write about love because no piece of paper is deserving of the story I could tell it. I do not write about love because…

a cry into a void

(A lil poem/prose to try to some up some thoughts I’ve had about our world lately.) I think we pretty viciously point fingers at those who spew hatred. We say they are vile, cruel. Mean, unusual. We imply that they are the ones who ought to be hated. All the while marking ourselves as clean…
