Some say ignorance is bliss.
I can see where sometimes it would be easier to keep your head in the sand rather than dealing with difficult situations, and I have read plenty of news headlines that have literally brought me to tears, just from the headline.
But a nice lady once said to me…
Don’t stick your head in the sand or else someone will come along and kick you in the ass every time.
I think a very important part of being happy and keeping a positive attitude is education. Educate yourself. You don’t have to pay university-rate tuition to get an education. You can learn something new every day, for free.
Go for a walk and you could learn that there’s a new store in your neighborhood.
Meet your neighbor and you could learn their name, or even find out she works for Krispy Kreme is always has free donuts! <– real life story
If you want to learn something, here’s a great place to start your learning for free. This list is from Marc and Angel’s blog, which has a plethora of Practical Tips for Productive Living.
I have no doubt you can find at least one thing to learn today. Let me know what you find!
