What if we GENERATE JOY?

Feb 19, 2020

It had been a rough week. After nine years of trying to start a family, Dustin and his wife Caren were finally returning home with their newly adopted baby girl. 

A flight attendant learned about Dustin and Caren's story and made a special announcement to everyone on the plane celebrating their precious new arrival. Passengers erupted with cheers, applause and congratulations.

Then the crew passed out pens and napkins to anyone on the plane who wanted to share some words of wisdom for the new parents... 

It's "What If" Wednesday... a time when we step into elevated possibilities for moving through life with hope, joy and purpose.

This week, we glean inspiration from a thoughtful flight attendant whose creativity and inspired actions created a cherished memory for two new parents...

  • What if we proactively look for ways to share joy and experience it together?
  • What if we celebrate each other's milestones and leverage these occasions to UPlift others?
  • What if the kindness of a "stranger" could create ripples of hope, encouragement and happiness to everyone that sees?

Bring your ideas, your stories, and your challenges to our "What If" UP Facebook Group. It's a great way to practice expanding your imagination, listening to your heart, and UPlifting others in our community. I hope to see you there!

Get Inspired!

P.S. Here are a few bits of advice from passengers on that happy flight:

"Make time for date night."
"Always tell her you love her." 
"The hard parts don't last forever."
"Enjoy every minute. It goes by SOOOO fast!"

Don't miss a beat!
