The Call To Participate – by Kat McCarthy

This edition of The Magic Happens Magazine in dedicated to the theme ‘Participate.’

Many of those who wrote for this edition expressed some difficulty with the theme and I have to admit, I had a little trouble with it as well. (I also have to admit that I find the very best content comes out of the tough subjects so I am not sorry.)

After many weeks of thought I realized that my difficulty stems from the fact that every bit of life begins and ends with a decision to participate or not. So for me, it was difficult to see a clear path to somewhere useful. In the end I did find a couple of pathways to something useful and one was deeply entrenched in the existence of the magazine itself.

Quite simply, if I and the other founders of The Magic Happens Magazine hadn’t listened to the call to participate in this idea, the magazine would not exist today.

So please enjoy the fruits of participation; sit back with your warm beverage and discover what each of our brilliant participants have to say about participation. And when you get something wonderful from someone’s article, please be an example of participation and leave a comment for the author.

I would also like to invite you to stop by our very new book store. It is small at the moment but it will grow. We are excited to provide you with more and better ways to practice thriving out loud.

Kat Editor

Happy Trails!

PS if you or someone you know has a wonderful story to rock, please consider telling it at The Magic Happens. We would love to have you join our family of writers.

About author

This article was written by Kathleen McCarthy

I am the founder and CEO of the popular online magazine, The Magic Happens: Humanity Thriving Out Loud. I am also the managing editor and chief discoverer of talent. The Magic Happens is my passion and the work that I put the most time into. I am a believer. I believe in what is happening right now. I believe in 'the happiness movement.' LOA is really cool and it is also a universal marketing scheme. What that means is: "the Universe had to give us a reason to be happy before we would actually choose to be happy." Us Humans would never even consider a happiness movement without knowing what was in it for us Humans. LOA taught us what is in it for us. Now we can just relax and celebrate - be happy for happiness' sake. I am the river. I am the buoyancy that holds The Magic Happens aloft. TMH is about thriving, thriving is about being happy. Thriving and happiness are both choices. We choose to be happy.. Or Not.. I/we, therefore, offer you choices. We virtually hold your hand while you explore the new choice. While you explore a new perspective so that you can see yourself thriving. So you can see yourself happy. Join us. Read with us. Love us, as we love you. :) If you write, join us and discover the value of support among people who care about your passion and success.
