There is often a silver lining to everything. You just need to look for it yourself.

The big news from last week was the negative report that employers slashed jobs nationwide to the tune of some 63,000 in February. In fact, this news was easily the lead story for much of the day Friday.

Well, here’s some news that’s equally important (and very relevant), but I’d be willing to guess that many people won’t see it unless they’re looking for it and you especially won’t find it as the lead story on tonight’s evening news broadcasts.

Amid the recent downturn, employers expect to hire in the next 3 mo...

Is anyone else tired of the negativity that emanates from any news we receive? Of course, this is nothing knew, but I encourage you to begin your day WITHOUT reading the newspaper and turning on the TV/Radio.

Do this for just 1-week and I guarantee that you’ll find a fresh outlook on life and a better way of starting your day than you ever imagined was possible.

This news item today is a prime example of why it’s important to read beyond the headlines.

Great post. I could take it a step further and say that maybe if the media would quit forecasting so much doom and gloom about the real estate market, people might actually consider buying again. At this point, prospective sellers don't think it is worthwhile putting up a for sale sign and prospective buyers think they shouldn't buy right now. There is good news out there, it just seems no one wants to report it. Each morning I feel like my news choices are limited to whatever Hilary / Obama has said (as if they haven't already said it), OR how bad the economy is OR what politician got caught doing something awful. I'm starting to like Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network in the mornings........Sponge Bob is a great way to start the day!

Thanks for your reply Kelley and you're absolutely right! Sadly, we've become a nation of "sheeple" and are so busy that we take anything the media gives us at face value and the hedlines determine how many think about a particular issue. Liek you, I don't know what I would do without Higglytown Heroes and My Friends Tigger and Pooh!
