I consume so much information every day. From internet commentary, social media and television, it seems like I’m always trying to decode, absorb , and rationalize the constant flow of info that is coming at me. What I’ve come to realize is, is that depending on how positive or negative the information is, my energy becomes effected. Not to get all “new agey hippy” on you, but I do believe in energy, I believe that we absorb energy in the people we interact with, the conversations we have and the information we choose to ingest. It’s becoming so important for me to protect myself from the constant flow of negativity that information overload can present.
“What’s Making Me Happy” is a post that lists all of those things around the internet that are bringing me joy. You know the good, high, positive energy feelings. Yes the internet is a dark place, yes people can be cruel and the world can feel hopeless. But I believe just as much as there is bad in the world there is double that in the good. I realize that you can’t bury your head in the sand on all topics, and there’s a lot that we do need to be aware of. But balance is key in all facets of life, and this post seeks to tip the scales in the direction of positivity.
Here’s my list…

Sounds almost impossible, but this article on a couple’s savvy saving, planning and small sacrifices enabled them to have the life they wanted by age 30. It is inspiring and completely doable!
