Good. What does it mean to me?

Much is obvious but sometimes overlooked: Laugh, respect and embrace the natural world, show up, make a difference, be curious, express kindness and thanks to others, speak out when injustice is being done, really listen, enjoy – but limit the Manhattans, don’t yell at the slow driver in the fast lane (bad for my blood pressure), welcome diversity, sleep, love.

I think it was Benjamin Franklin who said, “When you are good to others, you are best to yourself.”

goodcircle provides a forum for me (and I hope for you) to seek out and participate in the enormous good being done on a daily basis. Let’s recognize that, take heart in it, and build on it.
