Anyway, if you came over hoping for a little drinking and a cussin'....wait! Don't go!
Something really exciting happened for me not long ago. I'm sure it's not a big deal for a seasoned blogger, but for a newbie like myself it was sort of a validation. Validation that I'm (somewhat) capable out here in the blogosphere. When you're new to something, and a little unsure of yourself, a little bit of validation can go a long way.
The exciting thing that happened was that I was contacted by a company called bPositive. It's a new company that I hadn't heard of before, so I checked out their website. I loved them immediately. They are a company that focuses solely on spreading positivity, and supporting others who do the same. How could anyone turn down an opportunity to work with a company with that kind of philosophy?
When you've got kids, you see a LOT (and I mean A LOT) of animated movies. I don't usually mind it, because most of the time they have a great message. We went to see 'The Lorax' when it was in theaters. The film was cute, and passed along a surface message that we need to be environmentally conscious. I call it a "surface message" because it's the obvious one. But, if you pay attention, there is really more to it. The same principal needs to be applied to society. We have a responsibility to foster each other. If we don't, basic human decency is at risk of extinction. If you watch even five minutes of the news, it's hard not to feel like it is already happening.
As we were leaving the theater, a song called "Celebrate the World" played during the rolling credits. It caught my attention and I stood and listened to the entire thing. I bought it on iTunes. The kids and I frequently listen to it (and belt it out) on the way to school in the morning. One of my favorite verses in the song says:
Just believe and you're almost there
Use your heart to show you care
Come on and celebrate the world
I'm so pumped about this opportunity, because I've been chomping at the bits for a chance to share this song, and it totally works for bPositive. Because that's what they are all about. Believing in yourself and opening up your heart to yourself and to others.
