Thank you so much! I am glad that you’re seeing what this is all really about. And I hope you enjoy the blog! - Ella
Thegoodnewsgirls are proud to present….. Mind Of A Taurus! The very interesting blog started off as a blog with astrology, beautiful photographs that brought good energy to your hearts, and encouraging things and soon led into a blog that circles around self improvement, and encouraging words that seem to come from a person who truly understands and cares. I came across this blog from a friend of mine who questioned if I was secretly running it. (She’s anonymous on the blog) I laughed at this. ‘Who is this suspscious girl that runs a blog that reminds my friend of me?’ I thought. So I checked it out. I’m already in love with astrology, so I was like a kid in a candy store. Well, a girl in an archive. But on top of it all this girl talked about change, and self improvement. She was like a spiritual guardian angel for people over the internet. And I fell in love. I had to learn more about her. And what did I learn? Absolutely nothing. This girl was serious about keeping her identity private; only making her blog even more irrisistable.
‘What ethnicity are you?’ Anonymous people will ask her. And she only graciously replies back with,
‘Does it matter? I’m human just like you <3’ and we’re all left to wonder.
Wonder who this girl might be that goes into detail about the compatibility between a Sagittarius and a Leo. Who writes post such as, ‘Dear Virgo,’ that read like a letter that was personally addressed to you and exactly what you’re going through. Who helps people sort through their feelings when they come to her with help for an issue. Who is always willing to talk to anyone who needs it without any judgement or annoyance. Who started a segment on her blog called, ‘28 days of gratitude’ where everyday there are new exercises to help you feel grateful for different things in your life. And be appreciative of the beauty around you. And so we all follow her, and listen to this beautiful person speak beautiful words to us through a text post. And it’s all just enough for us to love her. Never like a preacher shoving beliefs down our throats. And never depersonalized words that make us feel like she doesn’t really care. And luckily I got in touch with her and was able to ask her a few questions. But before we get started I want to give a warning: You may think she’s amazing already, but her answers will make you fall deeper in love with her mind. So now I leave you to it, enjoy!
Just Sunday night, Ella and I anxiously gathered around the TV with blankets and snacks last night exactly at 8:00, to watch the long awaited finale of what was an extremely intense season of The Bachelorette. We watched as Emily Maynard, the bachelorette, struggled to filter out the jerks from the guys who she had absolutely no connection with from those who she could potentially have a future with. It’s a given that The Bachelorette had all of the drama and heartbreak that makes for good tv, there’s even a spinoff show Bachelor Pad, where they throw bachelor and bachelorette contestants into a house with The Bachelor and The Bachelorette superfans. But the drama of The Bachelorette led to a few confrontations- where Emily definatey put these guys in their place (You go girl!) One even called Emily’s six year old daughter, Ricki, “baggage”. It was quite clear with every rose that Emily gave out, or didn’t give out, she had her daughter in the front of her mind. We could tell, once it got down to the final four men, who was truly falling in love with this woman: ALL OF THEM. Each man, in his own time, poured their hearts out to Emily whether it was in little notes or letters, through gifts or kisses, we were constantly swooning at these men (One in paticular, thegoodnewsgirls were and still are team Jef!) It was not evident, though, who Emily was falling for until this final episode. With two completely opposite men competing for the love and possibly Emily’s hand in marriage, she had a very tough decision to make. Emily didn’t want to be “the girl who gets engaged fifteen times”, with no wedding, so the decision of who she would choose and if there would even BE a proposal at all weighed heavily on her as well as all of us viewers. She introduced both men to her parents, but only one man had the privilege to meet her daughter. After an amazing date with Jef Holm, one of the finalists, Emily brought him back to her house to meet and play with her daughter. It was clear by the way Jef interacted with Ricki that he would make an amazing dad- exactly what Emily wanted and so desperately needed in her life. That day, Emily knew what she had to do. Without even bothering to go on her other date with Aurie, the other finalist, she broke it off early and sent him home in an emotional and touching goodbye that was clearly painful for the both of them. This is somehting that I really applaud Emily for doing. Nobody wants to be strung on longer than needed, especially when their heart is on the line. Emily really proved to be a genuine and honest person throughout the show, and even though it wasn’t Aurie that she picked we could see that she really did care dearly for him. Later at the live After the Rose Ceremony Emily said that though she had fallen in love with Aurie and he did absolutely nothing wrong, it was clear that her feelings for Jef were much stronger. So strong that when he proposed…SHE SAID YES. Well, After a long, painful ten seconds on his knees, she said yes. Jef and Emily are still engaged today and are planning on moving in together in her town of Charlotte, North Carloina with a wedding on the way. I really think that they’re great for eachother, and hope that they make it work!
We loved Ice Age!
Walking into a movie theater that was filled with children ranging from three to nine and their parents can be a little off-putting for your self esteem. You may stop, and question where your life is going. You’re in a movie theater with dozens of kids, and a cherry blast ICEE in your hand. However, when you decide to actually sit down and watch the movie… you forget that, excluding the parents, you’re the oldest one in the theater. The movie from start to finish was constantly making me laugh out loud, and I even cried of laughter at one point. The cast consisted of Drake, Nicki Minaj, Queen Latifah, Peter Dinklage, Aziz Ansari, Jennifer Lopez, Heather Morris, Keke Palmer, Josh Peck, and so much more; but my personal favorite was Wanda Sykes’s character was absolutely hilarious, and was definitely one of the best characters to watch. I was surprised to find out that Drake’s character, Ethan *SPOILER ALERT was a douche bag that only cared about flipping his mammoth hair. And even that was so much fun to watch. Even when the end credits were rolling I was having fun listening to the musical number, “We Are Family.” Well, half of the fun was coming from the upbeat song, the other came from watching a young girl around the age of five or six dancing in the front row of the theater. Nicki Minaj’s character, Steffie, was an instigator friend of Ethan’s that had the very fun line of, “If you’re gonna stress about something, stress about your hair.” I would recommend it to you all. There was never a point in the movie where I felt bored, or wanted the time to pass by faster. I loved it. Fun movie, and great cast.
Gossip. Tabloids. Rumors. With all of the backlash and hate celebrities constantly receive it’s difficult to even imagine that they’re is anything positive being done in their lives. And with the constant talk of what they are doing wrong we started to wonder…where is the good news? This is where we come in- the girls with the good news. We created this blog in order to highlight and praise all of the amazing things that celebrities, and other people, are doing in their lives. Even if they’re little things. Rather than bash things and people for what we hate, we will only blog about that we love and admire about them. There are good people in this world, but it is hard to recognize the good when we are all so focused on the dark and ugly things about each other. What if we all started to point out the good things in each other, instead of the bad? Then what would things be like?
“OMG! Look at that girl, she is SUCH- a good person!”
On thegoodnewsgirls we admire genuine, and honest people. These are the people who we look for when we do our features and reviews on celebrities, and fellow bloggers that we feel deserve a good news pat on the back. We know that there is good in everybody, and we want to showcase that by spreading the good news.
The good news is there is no bad news here.
