EDITORIAL: Become happier, pay it forward.


These are tough times, for everyone. The pandemic, the truck convoy, the threat of war in Ukraine, inflation, weather inconsistency, global warming(?), hit and run traffic incidents, rising gun crime…the list just goes on and on.

Stop the world, I want to get off
Don’t you just wish but as bad as it may seem for you and me, it may be important to review and re-assess. There are others who are worse off, who have experienced worse things, who are in a worse situation than we are. Believe it as it is true.

Maybe it’s time to just give someone else a break and you can do it. You may not be able to buy someone a McDonald’s meal or a Timmy’s coffee. That’s ok. Here are some of the things you might be able to do: smile and wish someone a good morning; say “hello, how are ya;” compliment someone with sincerity; ask someone how they’re doing this fine day; wish someone a fine day….make your own list of what you can do to pay it forward for others to make their day a little better.

Send us your first name and initial and what you did…we’ll post these as examples and ideas for other folks to ‘pay it forward’ too.

Let’s see how far we can get with this campaign….we all know we need some uplifting for sure. So let’s do it for everyone’s sake!
