Be Not Simply Good

My name is Melissa. I live in Minneapolis with my husband and two children. Henry David Thoreau said, “Be not simply good; be good for something.” I have found that it is possible to be ‘good’ without really striving or growing. My goal, as Thoreau put it, is to be not simply good, but to be good for something. Be Not Simply Good documents my effort to make good choices in the small things as I strive to live a healthy life and positively impact my family and community.
