I talk about luck a lot. How I feel lucky, but I don’t quite believe in luck. Confusing, right? I think it’s because luck is made. It’s a thing we create when we really listen to our friends and keep their secrets, when we pick up a penny face up and make a wish, or when we do something to make a stranger smile. That’s luck. It’s created by opening up our hearts and sharing a piece of ourselves, believing in our imaginations, and doing the right thing. I know that’s what comes full circle in the end. That’s what gives us that extra skip in our step and makes us feel lucky.
And boy am I lucky. I haven’t send that before right?! Ha, well I am. And so are you. If you’re reading this you’ve got a phone or a computer that has the internet. Woo hoo! I say you’re already winning. Not to pull the children in Africa card, but…there are children in Africa, children and PEOPLE everywhere without such an awesome luxury. See, look how luck you are!
Now that we’ve all decided that we’ve been kissed by ol’ lady luck at least once, how about we spread that luck, spread that love, even further?
Denise DeMarchis is the person that taught me how lucky I am. She taught me so much more than designing and creating, she taught me to give. To give all of me. Even when I thought I already was!! Dang she is smart.
Well, that’s a lesson we want to continue teaching just in time for back to school. We want to spread a little luck and send some Good Vibes to those who need them.
Here’s the deal. We want to send Good Vibe packages to your friend that missed the bus on the first day of school, or the kid that gets picked last on the kickball team. Or the kid that did ALL of their summer reading (who does that!?). We want to package up a whole lot of love and give someone a reason to smile, to feel lucky.
So think hard. Find a penny, make a wish. Then get on your awesome devices and send an email to Goodvibes@thegoodones.com. We will need the age, size, name, and address, and a fun fact or story of the nominated person(s). We will then pick a few and send out the Good Vibes anonymously. Hopefully creating a whole lot of smiles along the way!
Now that we’ve started the Good Vibe train, we can’t stop here. Please do us a favor and send nominations whenever your heart thinks of it! The TGO team will be randomly sending out Good Vibes throughout the year…starting now!
So let’s do some good. Let’s make some smiles. And create some luck for someone that needs it.
