Kara's Joy Blog

One of the (few) things I learned in restaurant school has to do with customer experiences and the rate at which they are passed along. In a nutshell, a poor experience is 10 times more likely to be shared than a good experience. Someone who has a plate of spaghetti dropped on their lap at the Macaroni Grill will tell 10 people about it... whereas someone who has a perfectly prepared and served Eggplant Parmesan will only tell one person.

Why don't we share the good experiences more often? Why do we tend to default to the negative? Who knows. But this little forum for sharing Joy, from the tiniest of observations to the grandest of personal triumphs... this Joy Blog... is a beautiful step in the right direction. It's a slice of happy. We all have bad experiences and bad days... but what we chose to focus on here are the things that make us happy and grateful. A joyful little miracle of a blog. Thank you, Kara.

Happy Easter everyone!!

  1. Wow, that 10 to 1 statistic is crazy! It's sad negativity carries so much weight...but it makes me happy that we're all doing so much to combat it here...good words and thoughts to cancel out the bad. We're like soul superheroes, fighting evil with our power to perceive joy:)
