Happy Thought Thursday!

Ah, my favorite day of the week! Well, at least as far as blog posts go. The week is almost over (For you M-F folks anyway)!

"Our greatest desire is to live a life worth living"
-Bruce Lee

That is what keeps me motivated to chasing towards what makes me happy. Knowing that I could live for myself or my own ambitions...or I can pass along what little tips and motivation I can, knowing that that one day where I take a chance can make all the difference to someone's world.
We are, in turn, our own happiness.
We often regret more the things we never set out to do than the things we actually did. Go out and chase your happiness. After all, what's the worst that can happen?
-Derek

My PERSONAL happy thought for this week would be how well things have been going so early on with the Geek & Sundry contest

You guys. You're my happy thought. Seriously. I would be no where without you.

Oh! And before I forget, I believe I owed you some song downloads:

Voila!

(I'm hoping to also re-record these now that I have a better handle on my recording equipment. There's a few nitpicky things I'd like to fix, so keep an eye out for those in the future!)

What is "The Happy Thought" Project?

The ‘Happy Thought’ Project is an on-going collaborative work focused on the little things that make life worthwhile and make us smile. The goal is to create a collection of artwork (photography, drawings, writing) that bring hope and comfort. 

These will be shared every Thursday. 

If no content has been sent, I'll write something up on my own. Thursdays are going to be about sending positive thoughts into the world.

When enough content has been gathered, I would like to bind them into a book and donate whatever proceeds are obtained to the Crisis Clinic.


What Kind Of Things Can I Submit?
I accept drawings, photography, quotes, poems and short stories. 

Drawings and Photos should be accompanied by a small amount of text (whether to explain or add to the picture) and should be something you personally own the rights to.

Poems should not be previously published.

Short stories should be no longer than half a page in a word document and should not be previously published. I use ‘short story’ loosely. This should be a personal story etc.

Quotes may be famous quotes but please credit them appropriately.

Some editing may be done to make sure spelling/punctuation is correct but for the most part I will try to keep all writing in tact as it is sent to me.

I will also take things such as songs if you want to share one that brings a smile to your face etc but sadly this could not be included in the final book project should we ever get that far. 

How Do I Submit Work?
For the time being, please send all Happy Thoughts to happythoughts@kiricallaghan.com


Can I Submit More Than One Thought?

Yes!


Is This Anonymous or Credited? 

I would like to leave that up to you. 

If you would like to be credited for your thought, I will use only FIRST NAMES for privacy protection.


Please indicate in your email submission if you would like to have your name mentioned. If there is no indication either way, I will assume you wish to remain anonymous.
