Brighten – Def: to (cause to) become happy or full of hope.

I like feel good movies and feel good people. They brighten my day. I like to have lunch with people who are happy and full of hope. They brighten my day. I like to listen to people who talk of possibilities and what can be. They inspire me. They brighten my day. It’s the same way with the music I listen to. I like music that makes me want to sing along and dance. The music brightens my day. Each of us has the potential to brighten someone else’s day. When we brighten others we chase away the darkness.

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
