As I launch this journey to ‘focus on the good’, it occurs to me that I don’t need to look far to find good—lots of it—and that I am not on this journey alone.
It’s been less than 24 hours since I kicked the concept into gear, sharing my intentions on my blog and Facebook page, and already have a dozen people volunteering to jump in and get it rolling.
Some, like Krystyn Hall of ReallyAreYouSerious.com, are helping with logo design and website creation (she’s a badass at both, so if you’ve ever considered launching a site, start with her)…others, such as Michelle Jordan and Liz O’Keefe (who happened to work as TV reporters back at a station I was a News Director for decades ago), volunteered to jump in and contribute content. Others, including Karin Sheets and Mary Lebeau, are fellow bloggers I crossed paths with on my travels many years ago and remain in touch with, thanks to social media and their good hearts. Still more are simply friends, people who also appreciate the mission driving us here. Some are neighbors, others are people I’ve never even met ‘in real life’.
My point here: good really is all around us. Everywhere. We simply have to choose to see it.
There are people doing good each and every day, most without ever expecting to be acknowledged for their selfless efforts. It’s our goal to give them the pat on the back they deserve.
It’s also our goal to help you ‘be’ good…suggesting ways you can ‘do’ good around you…or to ‘find’ good when you need it.
We want to share all the good places, good people, and good things in the world that we can.
Feel free to jump in on the journey with us. Hey, one day, maybe we’ll create t-shirts to help spread the good. Until then, we want you to send us ideas, write stories of your own that we can share with the world, tell us all about any good you see around you.
Help us FOCUS ON THE GOOD.
(How do you like our logo? Sweet, right? Kudos to Krystyn… and don’t worry, as soon as we can get the site published, we will–and will share all this content over there as soon as possible).
