I remember listening to the news on the radio one morning while driving north on Route 24. One depressing story after another. “Isn’t there something good happening in the world to talk about?” was what I remember asking myself.
In that moment, late 2008, LivingHalfFull.com was born.
My thought was to offer my voice to the world. Not to change it, but to simply remind people – myself included – that in the face of negativity and uncertainty there is always something to be grateful for, including our ability to rise above any negative circumstances we may be facing and not be willingly enslaved by them.
This week marks the sixth anniversary of my very first post back in April 2009. I’ve learned a great deal since then, especially about myself. Writing for me is my therapy, will me quite often reminding myself of what it is I really need to hear. It always comes back to being grateful for all that I have, all that I am, and all that I’ve yet to become.
Thank you to you and all the readers. I am grateful for your comments, emails, and for allowing me into your world over these years. I hope you’ve enjoyed the posts. And a very special thank you to the ever-talented Jeff Golenski, my technical savant who took my fledgling idea and magically breathed digital life into it.
It’s a great day to be you!
