Introducing our new partner

As a Junior High teacher, I wanted my students to be informed and engaged citizens. Listening to the news often left them feeling overwhelmed, depressed and stuck with no idea as to how they could make a difference. Determined to motivate my students to get involved in creating positive change and to show them a different perspective on the world; I packed my bags and went travelling. Continue reading

Skeptical about stampede? Five reasons Calgarians can be proud of Stampede

K Stampede 2Okay so I’ll admit it, I haven’t always loved the Stampede.  It’s easy to point to the drunken idiots, the ridiculous amount of hay bales everywhere and old school ways of thinking that seem destined never to change when describing the ten days of Stampede. But over my time living in Calgary I have begun to appreciate the changes I have seen the Stampede make and the positive stories I have found. It’s important to remember for all those eager to dismiss the Stampede that as a non-profit organization it generates nearly a quarter of Alberta’s tourism economy, $345 million last year. The Stampede Foundation also invests $2.7 million annually into youth programs including the Young Canadians School of Performing Arts, the Calgary Stampede Showband and the Stampede School which increases agricultural awareness. But beyond those economic points, here’s five reasons we can be proud of Stampede 2015.  Continue reading

Good News You May Have Missed in 2014

Good NewsAs we reflect back on 2014, it’s important to realize that amidst many of the sad and negative news stories we were bombarded with there are also many hopeful and inspiring stories. These stories often do not get their share of the spotlight since we are all too eager to turn to more sensational tales.  As we return to work and school after the holidays, we have the opportunity in conversations with our colleagues, friends and family to shed a light on the good that happened in the past year.  I like to think of it as a challenge when people bring up the negative stories to try and counter with an amazing positive story.  In the spirit of that challenge here are five of the most talked about news stories of 2014 and an inspiring positive news alternative.

How to be more thankful

 

Sometimes it is very easy to complain about all the negative things happening all around us.  We start to be bogged down by little things that annoy us until we burst.  Enter the “Thankfullness Jar.”

A friend of mine, Cathy Yost, shared her wisdom with me several years ago when she told me that every year she picks a word to focus on for the year.  I chose “thankfulness” for this year.  I have been learning that when we choose to state and share what we are thankful for we actually increase our feelings of positivity overall. For example, one study showed that expressing gratitude for someone or for something you have could increase you happiness by 25%. So how do you make expressing gratitude a habit? Continue reading
