Humor & Inspiration

 

We all know that Laughter is the best medicine,

but do you know Hope and Inspiration are just as important?

It’s easy to take life too seriously, especially when trauma and dissociation are actively interfering.

This makes it extra important to find and maintain balance in your life. Humor and inspiration are invaluable tools in any resource kit.

I’ve gathered links to some of my favourite sites and articles. Some will make you laugh, others will make you cry or inspire you. All spoke to something in me, or they would not be here in this compilation of links.

 

One story I want to highlight is Hero of the Year – Woman Fighting Sex Slavery! – CNN.com  about Anuradha Koirala, a woman whose group has rescued more than 12,000 women and girls from sex slavery. She was named the 2010 CNN Hero of the Year. She said, “Human trafficking is a crime, a heinous crime, a shame to humanity. I ask everyone to join me to create a society free of trafficking. We need to do this for all our daughters.”

The Little Soul and the Sun is another story I consider worth singling out. It gave me pause when I first read it, and rippled through my unconscious after that, touching me deeply at many levels. Although some may not agree with the entire premise of it, it still highlights an awesome approach to life.

A final hopeful article to check out: In Bolivia, “the Law of Mother Earth“ grants Nature equal rights to humans. This is to encourage a radical shift in conservation attitudes and actions, to enforce new control measures on industry, and to reduce environmental destruction. Pretty exciting news!
