My theme for the New Year is HOPE…. Last February, I wrote about making a difference in schools by increasing access to adults, sports, and arts. I hope that in 2008 parents and educators will increase adolescent access to adults, sports, and arts, giving our future leaders more pathways to hope.

Margaret Greenberg Dear Readers: Thank you for your interest and curiosity in Positive Psychology during our first year of publication. I hope Positive Psychology News Daily has become a new, healthy habit. Tip for the New Year: Forget about New Year resolutions and goals for a moment; instead: What will your life “theme” be for ’08? Remember, our lives really do go in the direction we tell ourselves.

This is by far my favorite website!

Yea! to Sulynn for mentioning Pollyanna. I once thought of making buttons for the Positive Psychology Summit that said “Pollyanna was a practicing positive psychologist 92 years before the first MAPP program.”

Her story is worth reading — and available online.

Thank you Senia for the idea of launching 2008 this way.
