A Birthday Giveaway!

It’s my birthday today! Yay!



Not only is the universe providing an awesome solar eclipse, but while the world has been seemingly crappy lately, I’ve found myself refusing to give up on optimism. Because that’s how we let the crappy things win.

One thing that I’m especially thankful for is all of you, which is why I’m doing a giveaway for my birthday! The prize? A box of some of my favorite books shipped to you with a personal note from me telling you why I loved them and I hope you will, too!

Here’s what you have to do to enter:

Leave a comment down below telling me three things that you still love about this world. 

That’s it. Just tell me three things that make you happy. Do so before 11:59pm (EST) tonight and then tomorrow morning I will announce the winner, which will be randomly selected from the comments below.

Ready? GO!

This contest is now closed (but keep commenting with happy thoughts!). Congrats to Merima for the win!

    1. That there are still people in this world/my everyday life that are kind and willing to help others.
    2. That books will always be there for me to escape to.
    3. That I have my family to rely on.

  4. Roger says:

    My Wife
    My friends
    And long conversations with my wife, my friends and interesting people I meet along the way.

    That’s my world and that’s why I’m always optimistic.

    I know I’m late but A) happy birthday! and B) I still wanted to share 3 things I love because we could always use extra happiness in the world:

    1) Sunshine & Ice Cream
    2) My fiance and the fact that we’re at the point where we can get our license which means we’re getting married crazy soon!
    3) Optimism and kind people

    I missed your birthday, but I hope it was a happy one! Your optimism is lovely and appreciated. So much to be negative about these days that we need to try harder to not allow that to rule our days. Things that make me happy: My sisters, my cats and sunny days!
