Throwback Thursday: What The World Needs Now

"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." - Howard Thurman

I like the sentiment expressed here. We can often make the mistake of looking outside ourselves for answers to questions that can be only answered within. An example would be students who major in a subject not because it interested them, but because they read an article that said people in that field can make money. Life is long and if you are not into what you are doing for a living, it can be very long.

Find what you're passionate about and you've found life's sweet spot.

On the local front, tonight Bob Monohan is hosting a "Costume Poetry Slam" at The Red Herring. If you don't know what a Poetry Slam entails, the link lays out the rules. Sounds pretty scary.

Meantime, life goes on all around you. Follow your bliss!
