Best news?

Question of the Day has good questions for today (October 19): What is the best news you've ever received? How about the best news you've ever given someone? Take some time to reflect on your answer, then go and answer. Doing so may brighten your day.

Steve Chandler, in his book 101 Ways to Motivate Yourself, says that we should not merely watch the news, but we should make news. What can we do today that will be newsworthy (well, at least to those who really matter to us)? Too often we merely exist, rather than making a difference. Now I don't think we should do a noteworthy thing mainly to get noticed. The noteworthiness should be a by-product of our desire to "live deep and suck out all the marrow of life" (Thoreau). If we haven't done something that really matters for quite a while, we're merely taking up space.
