I think I might be the only person on the planet that didn't know about TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design). If you need inspiration, encouragement, a laugh, then I hope you'll click on these links I found fascinating and I'm just sharing four of them with you.
Elizabeth Gilbert on Nurturing Creativity and Eat, Pray, Love Writers will love this and any creative will too.
"Elizabeth Gilbert faced down a pre-midlife crisis by doing what we all
secretly dream of – running off for a year. Her travels through Italy,
India and Indonesia resulted in the mega-bestselling and deeply beloved
memoir Eat, Pray, Love, about her process of finding herself by leaving home." ~From the TED website.
Stroke of Insight/Jill Bolte Taylor This is a fascinating speech from an incredible woman who had a stroke and tells you just what that was like. "One morning, a blood vessel in Jill Bolte Taylor's brain exploded. As a brain scientist, she realized she had a ringside seat to her own stroke. She watched as her brain functions shut down one by one: motion, speech, memory, self-awareness ..." ~From the TED website.
Brene Brown on on The Power of Vulnerability
"How do we learn to embrace our vulnerabilities and imperfections so
that we can engage in our lives from a place of authenticity and
worthiness? How do we cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection
that we need to recognize that we are enough – that we are worthy of
love, belonging, and joy?"
Ric Elias: 3 Things I Learned While My Plane Crashed We all remember the pictures of the plane that landed in the Hudson River. Here's a perspective you'll appreciate.
"Ric Elias had a front-row seat on Flight 1549, the plane that
crash-landed in the Hudson River in New York in January 2009. What went
through his mind as the doomed plane went down? At TED, he tells his
story publicly for the first time." ~ From the TED website.
