Has this been happening to you? Cell phone not working, computer shutting down at random times and for no reasons, or even electronics failing in some way…What is up, lately?
I’m a very expressive person, so as I’m trying to type this I have to stop and flail my hands to emphasize my growing frustration 🙂 And it’s not just happening to me. Many of my colleagues are reporting the same thing. One of them even said, “Danielle, it may be time to take a step back and be more present.”
I did take a step back this weekend, and turned on the TV, only to watch the news…Yikes. Not a positive experience at all. Let’s just say the TV didn’t stay on for long and I was outside building a bonfire with my family instead.
I’ll admit, the feelings I had after seeing what’s going on around the globe weren’t positive, so I buried them. Today they came up as I was talking to a subscriber and she told me a story about her friend that touched me and I wanted to extend an invitation to all of you. This subscriber has a friend that releases a newsletter called, “The Good News,” and this newsletter talks about the positive things going on in the world.
I was inspired, and looked online for something similar. And I was pleasantly surprise to see that Today.com has a section on their website called Good News. I found so many inspiring articles about people doing good things in the world, whether that’s just being goofy (see video below of a farm guy dancing to Sia’s Cheap Thrills), or connecting with others in a positive way.
It's that time of the year for the Lets Move Challenge. Dancing is how I stay warm in the barn and I never know when I'm going to break out into a dance. But what most people don't know is that 15 years ago I had a traumatic back injury that caused me to have several back surgeries including a discectomy and a spinal fusion and never ending back pain. Dancing along with yoga and meditation are my only alternatives to pain medication. So I hope this can inspire anyone to move in spite of pain and I hope this puts a smile on your face for the New Year.Posted by Jay Lavery on Friday, December 30, 2016
And this is why I love what I do. I love to find people who are willing to express themselves and all parts of themselves fully. Whether they’re creating a business, a movement, or a non-profit, I’m inspired by those who seek to inspire.
So, thank you, all of you. Every step you take to express yourself is so needed and appreciated in this world and I absolutely see you!
Want to bring more love and light into the world? I’ve created an amazing Facebook group for you to do just that!
