This is... .oO an angst-free zone! .oO a community for those who can find the joy in life and share it with others .oO a community for people who can be down without taking others with them .oO for those who are willing to acknowledge the good in life along with the bad .oO for anyone who is always trying to get a little further ahead in spite of it being uphill in a snow-storm and who stops to admire the snowflakes or make a snow-angel or two. .oO a place for happiness and sadness and successes and failures... all without angst.
If you'd be so kind... .oO If you have a long post to make, even a happy one, use the LJ-cut function <lj-cut text="Wow, this is long!"> (or something!) .oO Please be nice to each other. No swearing or name-calling .oO No profanity in any posts. I know we all slip up, I'm not going to censor, but I ask that everyone make the attempt to keep this a positive space .oO Remember that you can be positive even in the midst of the worst days you can imagine, so don't hesitate to post if life is hard. If you're having trouble keeping your head above water, say so, and maybe someone else can help you find what's left to be positive about. .oO Grats are so very vital! Short for gratitude, a list of things for which one is grateful. Please do post these whenever you feel inspired! .oO Take responsibility for yourself. Make sure that what you post here is in keeping with the spirit of the community. .oO My hope is that this will be a community that we will all want to read because we come away with a sense of being uplifted, even if the news we read isn't good. This is possible. I don't mean candy-coating and plastic-smiles, I mean the real thing. It can be done!
