One of my standard mantras over time has been, Life is Good. I like it because it’s straight forward with no dangling ‘buts’ and it’s short. We Americans love our short twittery sound bites. For years that statement would open my gratitude flood gates.
Then—-drum roll please—a few weeks ago I was blitzed with an idea — the Life is Good Club. Bad news and negative concepts bully and shove the good news and positive thoughts right out of our lives. Wouldn’t it be delightful to attend a gathering where accentuate the positive wasn’t merely part of a song lyric or rhetoric from a self help book.
What if people gathered together for the sole (soul) purpose of sharing good food and good stories? Every attendee would be charged with contributing a positive story, book, recipe, picture, joke, TV episode. The form wouldn’t matter only the emanating positive vibrations.
The idea bounced around like Tigger (I love Tigger) and refused to disappear. Finally I experienced a ding dong moment—some call it an epiphany. Hey Hey, I’ll add a new segment to my blog!!!!! Immediately I was jazzed, enchanted, motivated. Hot Damn!
I don’t have all the details mapped out, which makes the unfolding more exciting and organic. My job is to plant the seeds and joyously nurture them. The Universe will add the magic. Who knows what forms or paths will emerge out of the mist.
Hey you, Reader. Yes you. Consider yourself invited to contribute links to blogs or suggest books or recipes or relate stories or feature pictures or or or. Let’s make a difference one story/one entry at a time.
To start the ball rolling down the hill is a link to a heart warming story of a young boy who had a bout with cancer. He’s been in remission 4 months and now he is realizing a dream. Life is Good!!!!!
Here is one of John’s famous cocktails from Kitchen Riffs to help celebrate the launch of the Life is Good Club.
