Share and Inspire With #GoodNewsMonday – 2nd Edition


I ran an impromtu “Good News Friday” thread on Facebook and Twitter a couple weeks ago and it was really inspiring to see everyone sharing their good news for the week. Considering Friday is usually already a good day, I decided to move the “Good News” event to Monday, where more people could usually use a pick me up.

The concept is easy. Every Monday, pop on over here and share your good news stories in the comments. I have already been inspired by reading all your good news to date and can’t wait to see where this thing goes. Without further ado, I’ll kick things off!

I was lucky enough to spend all day Saturday at Big Music Fest in Belleville and had the very cool opportunity to see the Counting Crows perform, as well as meeting Hedley and spending quality time with my wife and some of my blogging friends. It was an amazing weekend and something I will remember forever.

Now it’s your turn! What good news do you have to share with everyone this week? Leave your story in the comments below and have a great week!

    I will not be at school for the last day because the non profit organization Free The Children invited me to their penny drive wrap-up and and they chose me and two other people are speaking to he media about what we have been doing for the drive. I am so happy to help out!

    The way that Calgarians have been coming together to help each during this awful disaster brings me to tears. So many people wanting to do whatever they can to help. It’s impossible not to be inspired. Today The City of Calgary put out a call for volunteers expecting about 600 people to show up at the meeting point. Instead, there was nearly 3000. On two hours notice. Absolutely amazing.

      Now THAT is what I’m talking about. Just when you start to lose a little faith, humanity steps in and saves the day. I hope things get back to semi-normal there soon.

    Had a short chat with a homeless man, downtown, this afternoon. He had a sign saying “Dispelling the fear of Hobo phobia”. We chatted for a few minutes, I gave him some money and a Positive Attitude Zone token to keep the negative away and only allow the positive to come through. When I left his company we were both laughing.
