Tuesday Tip: Find Some Inspiration

August 2, 2011 | Tuesday Tips | 0 comments

One thing you can do today to be happier.

Elevation, awe, and inspiration are some of my favorite positive emotions. This video of Libby Sauter is instant inspiration to me and my kids. The music, the nature, the fact that Libby is so surrounded by her friends—how could I not feel elevated watching this?

What is your go-to source of inspiration? Today, read your favorite poem, have lunch with a friend whose compassion for others will elevate you, or find a beautiful vista that will make your heart swell in awe.
