In his book, “The Tao of Willie: A Guide to the Happiness in Your Heart,” Willie Nelson said, “Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.” The musical icon did seem to have a certain way about him and I think his words still ring true. At the very least, there is always room for more positivity in the world, our relationships and ourselves. And what better way to build that positivity than to share it in our interactions with others? You’ll have plenty of chances to spread some sunshine this weekend. Check out this list of fun things to do around Bellingham—Nov. 17—19. And be sure to check out our full events calendar for all the great local happenings.
