I'll start with a disclaimer: I am not a Pollyanna. I'm not a goody-goody. If you look closely, you won't see stars in my eyes. But, I do want to add a little more positivity to my daily life. Maybe it'll improve my karma. If not, I suspect it will at least improve my mood.
The purpose of this blog is very simple: To do Something Good every day. I'll make suggestions of things we can all do to improve the world around us, feel better about ourselves, or just make our lives a little less stressful.
I would very much like to create a sense of community in this space, one where we all take a moment out of our day to do Something Good. I will be following the suggestions, too, and will talk a little about what they have meant to me.
Most of the suggestions will be quick and painless. They won't cost any money and will leave you feeling like you're a step ahead of the game. Others will take more time or energy. Some might even cost money, although we'll try to keep that to a minimum as well. I just want us to be able to go to bed at night knowing that we did at least one good thing during the course of our crazy, hectic, brain-draining days.
I want to hear about how you've implemented these suggestions. What's gone well? I also want your ideas. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestion for Something Good that we can all do. To start with, I'll at least offer you a link to your blog or something, but as we continue on; maybe there will be even cooler rewards for having a suggestion that we use.
