Tonight I was thoroughly inspired by this post on Foxs Lane about the hardships on Kate’s farm happening right now in Australia, because her happy list immediately followed. Positivity is just so magnetic.
I’m going to make a happy list now and you should join me. Comment. Make a list. A happy list. Just do it. Don’t think first. For real. Okay GO.
