I’ve lived a stone’s throw from the Humane
Society since May and though I’ve thought to visit on several occasions, I
still hadn’t gotten around to it. So, when my boyfriend suggested it on a whim,
I took him up on it with enthusiasm.
The news can often be doom and gloom, but at this time of year I
always look forward to the attention that’s paid to the phenomenon of
giving…who to give to, where to buy, what to give, even the motivations and the benefits of giving. I read an article in the Globe & Mail explaining that
altruism has long since been considered the ‘noblest of human impulses’ but
also states that we can be motivated by selfish reasons. Who can deny how
good they feel when they’ve done good for others?
holiday season is in full swing with all that it brings – photos with Santa,
late night soirees, company parties, and so much more. With the fun, there is
undeniably stress associated with all that needs to get done at this time of
year. With that, I got to thinking about
ways to minimize this stress.
If you can’t think of anything nice to say then you’re not
thinking hard enough.– Kid President
A video by Kid President called “20 things we should say more often” has been making the social media rounds of recent and caught my
attention. I couldn't agree more with most, if not all, of his suggestions, especially his tip to sometimes say
nothing at all.
