Focusing on the positive has changed the course of my life.
Regardless of how small or large positive moments are, they perpetuate the existence of hope and joy in the lives of people. In an effort to help keep this optimistic momentum moving, I’ve started “Flies4Friends”.
During the month of February, I’ll be tying flies and sending them to my friends. My hope is that when they receive them in the mail, it will bring a smile to their face and joy to their hearts. On Instagram, I’ll be taking pictures of those flies and using the hashtag #Flies4Friends to encourage other people to do the same. If you’re a tier or a buyer, I would urge you to join me by sending or giving at least one dozen flies to a friend this month. Give them with no expectations of reciprocation, only with the knowledge that you’ll be bringing joy to another person.
Regardless of where we exist in this world, we always have the ability to make a positive difference in the lives of others. As fly fishers, we have a wonderful means to connect with people who love what we do. This month, let’s use that connection to give to them instead of ourselves and in the process, make the world a more positive place.
See you at #Flies4Friends
