The Dare List

The List Dare

I can’t help but notice the recurrence of “I Hate” videos. Why so focused on this? I don’t know. Sure it feels great to vent once in a while, but that dissipates quickly and really what is more irritating about the thing(s) you hate most, than to focus on them. How about a ‘joy list’ once in a while, or a ‘love list’, even a ‘like list’ would be interesting and preferable. It seems that depression and angst and disharmony are fashionable. (Master of the obvious says, I am NOT talking about a diagnosis of depression, which is a serious medical condition.) It’s almost as if by not voicing these you are outside of the trend. Maybe it has become taboo to mention being happy?
If anyone has the nerve to make a ‘joy list’ or an ‘I like’ list. I dare you.. I double dare you. Make one and send it to me (and and (space and number not prohibiting.) I’ll post it on my blog! Don’t be trendy! You’re more interesting than that!

Your view of the world changes the world. 

  1. I had a guided journal once that asked you to log five things that you were grateful for at the end of each day. Maybe I will break that journal out once more.
