and stop smoking, I wish you tremendous success. And I hope my earlier comments don’t discourage you. Everyone approaches these kind of things in their own way, so if a New Year’s resolution works for you, that’s awesome and I wish you all the best!
There is actually something I want to start doing today, but I don’t think it’s really a resolution.
It seems like there’s a lot of anger and fear out there. And it also seems like most of us want to do something to make the world a better place, but the thought of it is overwhelming. We don’t know how or where to start.
So here’s my little plan.
I’m going to begin posting something good every day right here in the WHAT’S NEW section (and also on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest). My goal is to do my part in combating all the negativity that’s out there, and with a little luck, offer up a little hope and inspiration.
I believe people are mostly good, and I think there are lots of stories out there that underscore that idea, but there’s no sex, violence or political outrage attached to them, so we don’t often hear about them.
I’m hopeful that the stories I post will make someone’s day a little brighter. And maybe someone will share that story and brighten someone else’s day. And maybe someone else will do the same.
And maybe someone will see one of these stories and think, “I can do that!” And maybe they’ll take that inspiration and do something similar in their community.
We all think about doing good things and making a difference around Christmas time. Maybe we can do that, and not just at Christmas.
But we have to start somehow and somewhere.
And here’s where I’m starting.
I’m going to share stories highlighting people who are doing something inspirational, or helpful, or just something good. I hope you like them. If you’re occasionally moved by one of them, I hope you share it.
Once we start sharing these kinds of stories, maybe we’ll get inspired to copy them and start making our own stories to share.
And, as simple as all that sounds, that’s how we change the world.
Ken Kessler has always been interested in psychic phenomena, and like Mulder on the X-Files, wants to believe. But like most, he tends to look for, and accept, rational explanations. (More)
