“Spirit”tual Connections

Today I’m feeling deeply humbled and more optimistic about humanity than I’ve felt in a while. It’s easy to get caught up in the news and the politics (especially bozos I disagree with) and feel alone, outnumbered, and misunderstood.

But I’m a big believer in focusing on the positive. It’s funny when I start to fall in a funk, or think people are ruthless, petty and in it for themselves that something inevitably happens to remind me of how good and giving people also are.

What the heck am I talking about?

Well, I had a bad day yesterday. A really bad day. I saw the lesser side of humanity and it kind of bummed me out. No point going into details. What’s done is done.

But today was a new day. It started off good when I saw a Facebook note from Beyond Ghosts wishing me a good week.

Beyond Ghosts has like 5,000 Facebook fans. Yet, at random they just sort of singled me out? I was stunned. (But thinking on it now maybe it had something to do with the fact I Tweeted and posted on HJ’s FB page about their ghost hunt/dinner buffet and lecture at the Historic Eagle House in Williamsville, NY this weekend. See their events page for more info if you’re in that area and want to do it. But be quick. Tickets are almost gone.)

I don’t know why they did it, but their comment prompted me to go check out their site. Which I hadn’t done in-depth yet. And when I did, I decided that’d make a good post. (It’ll come later this week.)

So I wrote asking for a logo. They zapped me one right away.

Once again I was humbled by how amazingly approachable an organization like theirs was.

That’s where I’m really going with all of this. I’ve been making all kinds of “spirit”ual connections lately. You know, with other paranormal enthusiasts?

I’ve contacted all sorts of people about so many different things and for so many different reasons lately. Most have been doing their online paranormal thing much longer than I have.

And what have I found? Generosity galore! I’ve been absolutely blown away by the stellar treatment I’ve received lately from people like:

I have to remember from here on out, when Life’s got me feeling cold, all I have to do is hop online. There’s a lot of warmth to be found there!

  2. The blog is a kind of wonderful family–people who think you’re witty and have something interesting to say, cheerlead you on a bad day, want nothing from you but some moments of connection and contemplation, to speak and be heard, to hear and be quiet, to observe and learn…I readly admit that when the day’s been yucky or terribly rewarding, I want to join my blog friends and share it. You have a family you are born into and one you choose. The blog world contains “my people.” The crowd I’ve been looking for forever but never lived in a place where they were in existence. You stick with us, you’ll always be a much adored sister.

  3. Here’s to all my blogger and facebook friends. We I’m having a bad day, they will either make a sweet comment or post something uplifting on their blog. Sorry you had such a bad day yesterday, I hope things are better now.

  4. You make my day better too. You are always there to encourage. I love your emails and coments. I’ve really appreciated your support and if anything You are a wonderful blogging friend 🙂 I hope you have a better day tomorrow.

  5. It’s really rather funny Courtney, call it fate or maybe karma, but it was honestly just a random act of reaching out to a “friend,” Facebook or otherwise, that led us to connect. Happy Tuesday from your pals at Beyond Ghosts Interactive Paranormal ;)!

  6. No!!! My rep! My rep! I feel it flaking away piece by sordid piece! Why and oh what have you done to MEEE?!!?
