Day 3606: Hope-scrolling

Last week, when I was looking for good news online about the USA midterm election, I made up the word “hope-scrolling.”

Hope-scrolling is the opposite of doomscrolling, which is defined here.

Therefore, hope-scrolling is spending screen time devoted to the absorption of positive news, which could result in helpful — or at least harmless — psychological responses.

The problem with hope-scrolling is encountering bad news along the way because (in case you haven’t noticed) most of the news online is bad.

As this daily blog approaches its 10-year anniversary, my hope is to keep it a place where it’s easy to do hope-scrolling, like (I hope) today.

On America Recycles Day and National Philanthropy Day, let’s see what I find when I search for “hope-scrolling” on YouTube.

Looks like I’m not the first to think about hope-scrolling!

Thanks to Present Moment Spoken Word and to all those who do hope-scrolling, including YOU.

Day 3604: Celebrate!

Because the human mind often focuses on the negative, I encourage people to celebrate whatever and whenever they can.

What might we celebrate today?


World Kindness Day is a wonderful thing to celebrate.

Here’s what I find when I search for “celebrate” on YouTube.


Thanks to all who can celebrate something with me, including YOU.

Day 3602: Waiting

As I was waiting last night for more results from the USA mid-term elections, I posted this on Twitter:

If you’re waiting for quotes about waiting, here they are:


Do you see waiting in my images for today?


Traditions are important, and shit you not — I traditionally refer to this song when I talk about waiting:

I’ll be waiting for your comments about this “waiting” post.

If you’re waiting for my gratitude for you, here it is.
