Dear Reader, |

Dear Reader,

As we move full steam into 2009, let us remember resolutions can be about our life view. After a season of wish lists and gimme, gimme, it is time to look outside ourselves and repeat a new mantra, “it truly is better to give than to receive.”

The benefits of giving are about you, your family, your relationships and your community. The trickle up effect is big, even global, a universal energy stemming from each individual’s random acts of kindness.

It’s time to put away the post holiday slump, to revel in the increasing light each day brings, and incorporate that light in your life.

Volunteer, help a neighbor in need, lavish those around you with love. Columnist Dr. Amy Vail does the math ” it’s the little things that count, exponentially.

So toss out the old and bring on the new. A new vision for what is, honestly, most important. After evaluation, your sight might shift from the new plasma TV to a community where it’s one for all and all for one.

I, for one, plan to follow the good doctor’s advice. Will you?

“Amy Edgett
