Why call it good? This page has been written I’m sure, but not by me.
The market is closed on Good Friday: GOOD day.
A man nailed to a cross: NOT (a) GOOD day.
No matter what you believe, the world slows just a little bit today as the stock market, banks and other forms of business declare today a Federal holiday.
Pause, leverage, and honor;
The goodness that’s all around you.
For today, good can be enough for Perfect.
There is so much that anyone, in any walk can see that’s good. And while I agree with Molly B. Wright that “good enough is not good enough; it’s gotta be great,” for today, I say good is enough.
Today, connect with what’s meaningful—assess your many, many treasures extending far beyond your finances, and decide to do more ‘Good’ with what you have; your health, your relationships, and your greatest life’s treasure – your ability to give back.
Give forgiveness, a cup of coffee, a smile.
SEE someone, truly see them, make someone laugh, take a photo of something beautiful, pet a stranger’s dog, encourage someone.
Before you bestow these Joy boomerangs to others, do all of them for yourself—because today is GOOD Friday. Where upon all these gifts where given to you, first.
