I am a lover of Ted Talks.

In fact, more than one of my posts has been inspired by someone or something I heard in one (such as, 3 Ways the Practice of Listening Can Serve You). Sometimes I listen to them while I’m doing dishes, folding laundry, or doodling in my journal, other times because I have 10 minutes I’d rather not get sucked into social media for. They are uplifting, educational, inspirational, and thought provoking. And because they are typically 20 minutes or less, they make for the perfect pick-me-up!

I’ve gotta say, this was just one of the best posts to write this week, because I got to re-watch some of my very favorites, and I’m so excited to share them with you!

I’ve also added some of my own journaling prompts for your introspective inspiration!

Journal happy and enjoy!
