It's nice to be reminded of the good in the world.


Lately, I've been noticing something
about my facebook news feed.

It's just people posting inspirational story
after inspirational story.

Interesting photograph after interesting photograph.

Disturbing statistic after disturbing statistic.

It made me think.
I feel like we go to the internet
to search out
and experience
whatever emotion we want to feel 
at the moment.

Just go to Upworthy
or Huffington Post,
and you can have it.

Read about this obscure artist from Croatia,
or this teenager's good deed,
or this study's finding about happiness,
and you will be more _________ of a person.

(Insert whichever adjective you are lacking today.
The internet's got your back.)
