All things considered, I've led a very privileged life, there's always been a roof over my head, food on the table, people to call family, and money in my pocket. My problems are what we commonly call #firstworldproblems, like a frustrating call with a customer service rep at Rogers, not being able to upgrade my cell phone, or my persistent search for my ideal job. Call it what you want, good karma, good luck, good fortune, but the common denominator is that it's 'good', and in my experience in life, anything good should be shared. So as I think about my mission, to increase the social good quotient in the world, it really comes down to sharing the good we have in our lives with each other. To some this may sound idealistic, and preachy, but deep down, I think we all know it makes sense. Sharing doesn't mean leaving your own closet bare to help someone else, the beauty of sharing is that the more we do it, the bigger the share of pie gets for everyone, and who doesn't love pie?
