Finding the Bright Side isn’t always easy
…but we think it’s worth it.
We get it, the last couple of years have been a whirlwind of the unexpected, and it can feel really good to pick out a scapegoat.
But we all get to choose how we react to change. We can be kind or rude, happy or frustrated. The thing is, change happens either way, but we’re the only ones who can make ourselves miserable over it. And to that we say: NO THANKS. Given the choice, we choose happy. So we’ll keep showing up for what we believe in, putting in the work to make this valley great. We’ll plant fake flowers for an Astroturf photoshoot or plant kindness in our community by welcoming new neighbors. Whatever it takes. And we hope you’ll do the same.
We’re here for you,
Team Go Local (George, Elma, Jill, and Katie)
