Some of you may be wondering, “Why did you come up with an idea like Smile TV?” or, “Why should I watch Smile TV?”
The truth is that the simplicity of our concept is baffling in our current culture. We aim to be a reliable resource for positive thinking and content that makes people happy. By having access to happy feelings and positive ideas on tap at all times, we hope that people will discover ways to skip to the other side of troubled waters. That is really all there is to it.
A Source of Singular Positivity Online
Unfortunately, most of what you see and hear in the news these days is upsetting. Either violence is occurring, or crimes are being committed or a group of people is being treated in an unfair way. These stories are all crucially important to knowing about the world around you, but the way they are presented often has little to do with keeping you informed. Instead, they keep you confused, upset and scared.
Any time a tragedy occurs, the sadness of the situation is often dwelt upon at the expense of giving us background information. Pundits then come in and assign blame to one such person or organization, then comes the defensive reaction and so on. Through this cycle, one tiny event helps others profit by playing on all these negative emotions. Even social media channels have confessed to manipulating emotions to experiment with how people would react.
We understand that to these people it is just business as usual, and we respect their place in the way we digest information and communicate with one another online. But there are enough sources of negativity to dwell upon online. We want to make a change by being different — to stand up for happy feelings and refuse to look away from the bright side of things. After all, for all the tragedy in the world, there are a million acts of kindness and love. Hopefully, by highlighting the love instead of the anger or even the sadness, we can prevent unnecessary negativity from making a bad situation worse.
Our goal for Smile TV is to outshine the negativity promoted by other content channels like news media or cynical pundit blogging with positive imagery and ideas that make people feel good.
Better yet, we can take someone who has experienced loss or hardship and give them a smile to carry them through the challenges they must face.
