One night, after telling him that I had a bad day, my then six-year old son challenged me, “Maybe you should do some gratefuls, daddy."
I took his challenge to Twitter and wrote something like, “Worked out. Wrote. Played with my son.#ADayWellLived.” And I immediately felt better. “Today is going to be a day well lived” instantly became something of a mantra. An intention. Next, I started a Facebook community that grew to more than 100,000 members in its first year.
Today, we continue to build the community. We're adding more content and looking for cool, inspirational merchandise from brands you know, as well as artisans we hope to introduce. And, in doing so, we’ll also launch the (ty)3 initiative – donating money and saying “thank you, thank you, thank you” to those who have helped us when we needed it most.
It’s been said that we should “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Well, that’s what this is all about. This isn’t about one person. It’s about all of us. It’s about a desire to be more grateful. A desire to help people. A desire to truly inspire. And take action.
