On September 9, I was reading one of the few blogs I read very regularly – Positively Present. In this particular post, Dani described a contest focussed on positivity and paying it forward. I’m not much of a contest enter-er. However, as Dani is gifted at doing, her words nudged me toward trying the uncomfortable. And since I feel pretty darn strongly about both positivity and paying it forward – I entered.
This week I found out I’m one of 25 semi-finalists. And no one is more amazed than I!
After picking up my jaw off the floor, I sat down to watch/read all 25 entries. I was even more amazed to find myself among such a world- changing group of humans.
From here, YOU, YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, NEIGHBORS & COLLEAGUES get to pick the ten finalists. Nine of these folk will receive $2,500 . One will receive $10,000. All will pay their prize forward. How cool is that?!
I hope you’ll click HERE to see my entry. And I hope you’ll also take the time to view the others.
One of my real life heroes, Michael J Fox says, “The only thing worse than an opportunity you don’t deserve is blowing an opportunity.” So… I ALSO HOPE YOU’LL VOTE FOR ME and share this news with your family and friends (ps – you can vote once a day through Nov 14). THANKS!
