After a fun and fruitful winter break with kids, friends and family, the January blahs are setting in. Sure, it’s sunny and relatively mild in my city today but, still, it is January.
With school back in session, extracurricular activities beginning, and work deadlines looming, feelings of warm sun and spring air are still well beyond my grasp.
So, I figure, if we can’t enjoy the real thing, please allow me bring you a little bit of virtual sunshine:
Kind Over Matter — A beautifully-designed blog about kindness, gentleness and love.
An Invisible Thread — An absolutely heartwarming true story about a woman’s “chance” meeting with a hungry, poor child and the relationship that followed.
Call Me Hannah — A relatively new (but very popular) blog created by a 9-year-old girl who wants to inspire others to be generous and open-hearted.
The Dancing Egg — Written by journalist Caren Chesler, this engaging blog (also featured on Huffington Post), features the musings of a woman who had a baby at the age of 47.
Character Community — A volunteer-driven foundation dedicated to “nurturing positive character attributes and enhancing York Region as a desirable place to live, learn, work, and play.”
Please let me know if you have other stories, blogs or sites that might balance out January’s mental malaise – and Happy New Year!
