Been a good year for new music, and I have a few albums and songs that I’ve been bumping non stop that you should check out.
This is my #1 album this year, the entire thing is dripping with good vibes, every song is fire.
This is a friend of mine from high school and it’s amazing. The first couple tracks are some of my favorite songs this year.
I had the chance to see them on Saturday and it was absolutely amazing. These guys have the best instrumental album I’ve heard in a very long time.
Lower the Heavens – The Donkeys
All – Blackbird Blackbird
Left Hand Free – Alt J
I’ve been thinking a lot about the importance of implications in life. I think the #1 change I’ve made over the past five years is to always have good intentions in every interaction I have. If you always want the best for the people around you and interact with people with the best intentions, you’ll create an energy that attracts people to you.
Stay Positive Gear
A few months back I put in a new order for Stay Positive shades, sweatshirts, and t-shirts. I’m super stoked about it. I’ve been selling them to friends and family, and I’ll be putting up a live Etsy and StorEnvy shop to sell to everyone this week. Stay tuned and get in on the good vibes.
One of my favorite bi products of the Stay Positive gear is the regular and constant comments I get walking down the street. Every single time I wear it people are smiling at me and giving me the ol’ “Stay Positive!!”. My response, every time, “holla”.
This year at my job has been the year of the farmer. Almost all of my new conversations are with farmers and organizations that support farmers. This year I’ve helped over 100 farmers access over $700,000 in capital on Kiva Zip. It’s something I’m really proud of. We should be supporting small local farms in the US and investing in food that is grown in a sustainable and responsible way.
I’d love if you could find a farmer that is fundraising on Kiva Zip and help them out with $5.
I’ve written about this in previous blog posts but I can’t over emphasize how big of an impact it’s made on my life this year. Since January I’ve been writing three things I’m thankful for every day. I think it’s had a massive positive impact on my attitude, perspective, and day-to-day happiness. I’m creating a timeline of my life that’s helping me keep track of all the awesome stuff happening every day. I highly encourage you to try it out.
