I’m not just a HEthen, i’m also a TED-oholic, socializer and bookworm. Whenever in doubt about myself I read Richard Bach’s books Jonathan Livingston Seagull, and flip up the old roman empror Marcus Aurelius writings Meditations. He normally always have some wise words to guide you.
Couch potatoing have a tendency to make you loose energy and faith in yourself. so what about trying to find some charity foundation and work a bit for free, or find some other sort of project you’d like to take part of, or start a project yourself.
There is a thread here talking about different charity things you can take part of (been looking, but can’t find it atm). And then there’s the thread about the 30-day challenge, that might be something for you (can’t find that either).

I take for granted that you have asked yourself the question “What do I really want to do?”, but have you asked yourself “How do i want to be remembered?”
There are loads of people on this site who are way better at inspiring people then me, but i hope that this might be a start. But if i haven’t then google Peanut with Jeff Dunham, they always get me in a good mood. (probably cause i recognize myself in peanut. Sad but true!)
All the best

I tried to remove the whole post but found that to be impossible so I shorted it. Love Jeff Dunham by the way just you mentioning that brightened my mood. One of my favorite things to do and I have long practiced but seems to be more spread out as I grow older is random charity. I love doing something for someone for the simple fact that I can. I use to buy bags of candy and pass it out on the school bus to everyone which gave me a amusing nickname when I was little. I’ve been stuck on the what do I want to do for years now!!! And i am checking out the links thank you Moa!

Beautiful ladies and great music.

Athletes, inventors and warriors.

Animals and children.

And most of all, my own progress. There’s nothing more inspiring than succeeding and growing. It’s a feedback loop, the better it gets the gooder it gets.

I am often inspired by music, videos & movies, books, and articles. They come in small moments but those moments occupy my mind more than the present. I couldn’t tell why something is inspiring ,but if I’d to guess I would say media that presents me with ideas or resonates with ideas I am dabbling in, inspiration maximizes itself.
