Hello welcome to my blog!

It’s very simple. I’m here to offer you “something to feel good about.”

I look for opportunities to help you to smile, laugh and to be inspired. When I find something special that lights me up, I want to share it with you.

NOW is the only moment that really matters. If you find something that brightens your day, puts a smile on your face, and makes you feel grateful just to be alive, pass it on and light someone else up too.

That’s what finding and sharing a BrightSpot is all about. Lighten Up and Pass it Along……….

Find Something to Feel Good About, Now

With Love, Light and Laughter

Seize The Moment, Be Present Now

Ever get bogged down in the day to day stuff and forget how important it is to seize the day?
I had tea the other day with my too close friends, Jeannie and Rebecca. Our time together began with light conversation, chatting over tea and snacks. After awhile it led to sharing our frustrations regarding lack of clarity in our next career steps. What began as a joyful experience had taken a turn to become serious and I arrived home with a slight headache.

Coca-Cola Happiness Machine

Are you someone who loves the status quo, or do you welcome unexpected surprises? I find most of my happiest moments have occurred with very little or no planning. Today the happiness machine lives in me, and I choose to activate mine by generating spontaneity for myself and others.

The truth is that I used to hate change because I was afraid of the unknown. I gave that up once I realized I had very little control over anything except myself and my attitude toward just about everything. Now I actually welcome surprises! I love living in the present moment and with that always comes lots of magically unexpected events and gift.

Be An Optimist, Live Healthy and Happy

Are you a pessimist or an optimist?
I believe that it’s essential to happiness to find the positive point of view no matter what the situation. I also believe that even if it’s not in your nature, you can learn to be an optimist.

There’s no doubt that it’s going to rain. A sprinkle can become a shower which can quickly turn into a down pour. There may be thunder and lighting and even unexpected and devastating flooding.
