Links and inspiration

So here are my newest finds gleaned while looking for answers to questions and exploring this virtual world!

Do you know Daniel Gilbert's "Stumbling on Happiness"? Here he is giving a 20 minute lecture on natural happiness vs. synthetic happiness, or happiness that comes from some external source vs. the happiness we can create ourselves. We are more able to create our own happiness than we think!

The Health Benefits of Altruism - How Giving Back is Good For You.

On her blog, Superhero Journal, Andrea Scher asked this question:
What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?
She has over 90 wonderful answers from all her readers.
When she read through these, several things came to mind:

"I'm not going to say What are you waiting for? or If not you, then who? or What's stopping you?

Unless of course, you'd like me to.

What I will say are a few things that struck me as I contemplated your comments this week:

There is nothing wrong with you if you don't realize these dreams.
You are still good.
You are still perfect.
You are still your superhero self.

The things that scare us are often what bring us the most joy."

Do you know "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds?

Do you know George Burns' "101 Healing Stories: Using Metaphors in Therapy?"

Or his "101 Healing Stories for Kids and Teens: Using Metaphors in Therapy?"

So what WOULD you do if you knew you couldn't fail?
