Our beliefs of what we see determines the road we travel. One person looks at a sunset and barely notices it. Another sees the same sunset and gives thanks for God for the gift of life. One person sees a homeless person begging on the sidewalk and wonders why the city allows such things. Another person sees the same homeless person begging and sees someone who’s run into back luck and reaches into his/her pocket for a bit of help. One person sees someone of a different color and worries about his/her safety. Another person sees the same person of a different color and offers a smile and ‘hi, how’s it going?’ Is it time to question our beliefs about what we see?

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).
