Here’s a smattering of inspirational material, in case you are feeling gloomy and in need of an Ark this spring (in my hemisphere, at least). If your Billy the Big Mouth Bass has failed you, try some of these:
– Neil Pasricha gave a nice Dr. Suess-y (in the “Oh the places you’ll go” sense) TED talk about having a good attitude, self-awareness, and remaining authentic to yourself. He’s a funny guy! (And he blogs.)
– That reminded me of another very amusing and humorous reminder to be grateful.
– There’s an Irish proverb (or at least the copy I have is bordered by shamrocks) that goes like this:
In life, there are only two things to worry about; either you are well or you are sick. If you are well, there is nothing to worry about. If you are sick, there are only two things to worry about; either you’ll get well or you will die. If you get well, there’s nothing to worry about. If you die, there are only two things to worry about; either you will go to heaven or to hell. If you go to heaven, there is nothing to worry about. If you go to hell, you’ll be so busy shaking hands with all your friends that you won’t have time to worry!
– Always look on the bright side of life, per Monty Python.
– Be glad we are no longer in the 1970s, although the version of Godspell that I was in during the late 1990s had quite similar costumes.
