You are looking in the wrong places.

Don’t watch or read the news unless you can do so without reaction. (A challenge for me.)

People are good. My sister-in-law suffered a stroke. She’s only 50. We put up a GoFundMe and they received THREE times their goal.

A ten-year-old boy in our community lost his father to Covid. I collected money among our teachers and their network brought in $1,000 in two days. It’s still growing!

People are good. Remember that. Be the change you seek. Make effort for good.

The next day, Annie Anthias invited Chloe over to hang out. They exchanged seaweed soup recipes and baked shrimp cakes. Annie wanted to go on the Keto diet together. She had gained some weight TV binging and hadn’t been to the gym in months.

“We can’t go on that diet! Where in the coral reef would we find cauliflower and cheese?” asked Chloe.

Chloe did not think so: work, dating, money…it was all too much. She clicked the “add to cart” button but decided to hold off on purchasing the purse. She had 8 other items in the cart and made a mental note to revisit the website at home that night. She felt very excited and powerful which was a lot better than feeling anxious.
