Shawn Branch of  VanbranchblogIn today’s society, I feel we are really focused on the rich and famous (what they wear, who they sleep with, how much money they make, what they drive, etc). Reality television has become our main source of entertainment and the news has become totally focused on the number of murders, suicide bombers, and things that make us feel that the world is going crazy. I often feel that it is hard to find the positive in our society, the light at the end of the tunnel. I had to turn off the television and start to read and get focused on something else.

I am a regular on Facebook, connecting with loved ones, sharing inspirational thoughts and quotes (all not my own). Many have responded with positive words and thanks for uplifting their day and spirits. When I gave it more thought, my Facebook postings even made me feel better and gave me hope for a brighter world.

With this blog, I hope to reach many more people-people like me who are searching for the positive and the light at the end of the tunnel. My goal is to share with you positive energy, inspiration/motivation from words, pictures, music, and books, with an added twist of candid conversations with folks who inspire me. I am also going to share my real life experiences, things that have shaped my life. I hope this blog will start great conversations on our journey together…..looking for the light!
