Inspired by a practice I discovered Tammy takes weekly over at her excellent blog, Rowdy Kittens, I am including links here today to sources of creativity and inspiration. Several of the articles here are by some of my fellow Goodbloggers.

Courtney Carver shares a wondrous opportunity to bring clean water to those in need. It is her choice for celebrating her birthday! I just made a donation – it was so easy.

Dona Bumgarner at Nurtured Mama poses the question, “What one step can I take toward what I want?” Then, she shares reflections on three pets that begin a new chapter to her life. I feel welcomed by her invitation: To Do Something Big, Start Small.

Kendra Penrosa Carlson of Have Mercy Blog leads a compelling and frank discussion about beauty and self image. It is planting seeds of reflection for any of us to ponder.

Daniela Jaron, who hosts Life with a Tiny Traveller, seemed to tuck me in her duffel and take me along on her lovely weekend trip, in Postcard from . . . . Belgium.

Harriet Cabelly, of Rebuild Life Now wrote a guest post for the blog, Gratitude and Trust, about the importance of where we place our attention, “Keep Your Eye on the Donut and Not Upon the Hole”. From her own experience, Harriet shares, “When we focus on what’s going well . . . . and feel appreciation and gratitude, we have a greater ability to deal with what’s not going so well.”

Sandra Pawula describes how to “go from a state of dissatisfaction to one of contentment and ease” on her blog, Always Well Within.

A DVD I enjoy playing over and over, even as background while I relax or as I work:


Poetry by Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks, in Rumi: The Big Red Book: The Great Masterpiece Celebrating Mystical Love and Friendship. If you are familiar with Rumi’s poems, your heart may feel as expanded as mine does. If you are new to his work, prepare to be enchanted.

Where do you find inspiration and creativity?

How might you allow more opportunty to be inspired?

Blissings, Dena
