Fall is an excellent time for self-reflection. With summer festivities ending, leaves changing and grandchildren well into their next school year, I find myself with more time to think and simply be with myself.
I recently learned about CBS Dream Team’s new TV series, Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes and it really gave me something to think about.
How am I affecting those around me with my own attitude?
Now, I consider myself a pretty positive person, but does my positivity light up those around me?
Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes is all about everyday people who share their positivity with society through good deeds.
To me, this TV series is a breath of fresh air in light of the plethora of unfortunate things that we hear about happening in the world. It is so important to share the positive — the negative gets plenty of air time! I admire that CBS has dedicated a series to acknowledging that there are still MANY caring and compassionate people looking to selflessly help others.
Interestingly, spreading kindness may even be profitable. In fact, a recent IPO by Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (CSSE) was quite successful. As you may know, CSSE focuses on producing positive, uplifting stories. The company raised $30 million as part of the offering that priced shares at $12 a piece!
Last September, actor Ashton Kutcher signed on as executive producer for two new unscripted series for Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. Kutcher’s company, called APlus.com, is a digital media company that specializes in positive journalism and social change.
Which is to say that kindness is gaining momentum. The question is, what can we do to push it along?
