Yes, you could go see a movie, or you could just go out to dinner. But if you want inspiration, here are some ideas that could get some real juices flowing. Try one or two of them – and let me know how it goes.
  1. Express your creativity – make a drawing, write a story, sing a song.
  2. Get outside! Run in circles. Play.
  3. Call someone you miss. See them – or at least have a great talk.
  4. See a play or a dance concert. Get inspired by others doing their work and support them.
  5. Spend time looking in the mirror. Look deeply into your own eyes. Appreciate yourself.

 

Egypt. Haiti. Uprisings. Acts of nature. Dictatorial governments. Killings. We all feel powerless and frustrated when these things happen. How can we move past this? What can we do to inspire others who need it?
  1. Let go of the illusion that worrying helps. Empathy doesn’t help either.
  2. Instead, breathe. Feel your center. Visualize sending love and compassion to those enduring the difficulties.
  3. Contact a reputable humanitarian agency doing work in that area. Ask them what they need. And if you have any personal connection whatsoever in the area
  4. Make a donation – something, anything – to help. $5 is still five dollars.
  5. Keep living your life the best you can – don’t compromise your own sanity or health. And encourage others to also help.
