What am I for? - What new and missing words can teach us about the incredible story told by Nikki Mark

In the “About Phetasy” section there is a hidden gem in the Community Guidelines. Have you read it?

“A community of people more interested in discovering what they are for rather than what they are against.”

I take this line as a challenge. We instinctively look for the negative. It makes sense. We want to eliminate negatives from our lives… the risks, the dangers, the annoyances and pitfalls of all kinds. Will I remember to look for the positives? Will I stop to articulate the thing I am for? What is the thing here I can build upon? The positives are different, better, but perhaps less immediate, more nuanced, and requiring more work, thoughtfulness and time to implement.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

Thank you @atommiller and your daughter!!! I am obsessed with these!
