Stuart Scott and the power of positivity

10 Jan

Between, the Charlie Hebdo murders, Boko Haram’s slaughtering thousands in Nigeria, the ongoing madness in the Middle East, political tensions everywhere, the looming climate crisis, it’s been hard of late for me to avoid getting bogged down by the ugliness of the world – but reading this from Mike Wilbon about Stuart Scott’s endlessly upbeat attitude, even in the hardest hours of cancer, is a good antidote.

I like to laugh – but I’m going to rededicate myself to taking the deep breaths first and then ramping up the positivity.

I still believe in the power of positive thought and action. Let’s reminder ourselves of that. Let’s work in a new way, let’s work on laughing at ourselves a little bit more. We’ll all be better for it.
