Hi hey hello,
I hope you all had as a splendiferous a day as I did. There was nothing really particularly special about it, perhaps it is this time of year, or maybe the impending vacation time, or perhaps it is the sense of accomplishment at finishing yet another AP Macroeconomics assignment. I am not really sure what it is, but today has been awesome.
We had another game today, and yes, in case you were somehow counting, we have had 3 games without a practice… It is a bit crazy, but it is a learning experience to say the least. We are doing well, we had our first lead in a varsity level game tonight. That was quite a thrill to be a part of.
I just read a blog post over at Talin’s blog about knowing you are special. This sort of got me thinking about that and how negative our society can be. What if we focused more on the positive, not neglecting the negative because that is how we grow, but perhaps focusing on what we have and not so much what we do not have. Especially in this time of year, we as Americans are all about what we WANT , what if we focused more on what we have and be grateful for that, and turn that into helping others, who actually NEED things. I am not saying that for Christmas this year you should only give things to others and not receive anything, though that would be amazing. Sometimes we do need things, but being grateful for what we do have can go a long way in our perspective.

What are some ways we can help our society this Christmas? How can we try to focus more on the positive?
