Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, dear friends. It’s winter. This is the time to hibernate. To dream about fresh dew, toes in the ocean, warm sun on the skin. Our tiny team here at the BSP has collectively decided to take a long winter’s nap and our ray of sunshine will shade itself for a brief spell. This is not intended to be an eternal winter. Merely a brief respite; a long winter’s nap.

We want you to take this time to do us a favor: live in love. A few other requests, if you’ll humor us.

Do something nice for someone, every day. Find joy in the daily tasks that often seem daunting. Smile, a lot. Compliment yourself once in awhile. Spread joy. Eat pancakes at four in the afternoon. Sing “Happy Birthday” to your pets. Hug your loved ones like you mean it. Then bottle up that good feeling and remember to spray the air with it on occasion. Just to remind yourself of the good. We’ll do the same. And we’ll see you as soon as the frost melts.

2015 is full of possibility, dear Bright Siders. Make it happen.



The BSP team.

    I agree. We don’t need all the giveaways, but we do need our Bright Side.

    Hello BSP team! I hope you all have been doing well. Just letting you know that I appreciate what you all did and if you decide to pick up again, you’ve got a reader here. If not, then thank you for several years of cheer when I really needed it. Truly, you made an impact in my life.

    I want to echo Ali’s sentiment. I will always cherish our BSP community. Thank you so much for creating this project.

    Plus, I had the added bonus of getting engaged via the BSP 🙂 You might be happy to know that my now-husband and I welcomed our first baby in August: a chubby, giggly, smiley, Bright Side baby boy.
