Motivational Mondays: Lessons from Boy Meets World

As a person who was born in the 80s, “Boy Meets World” was one of my favorite shows growing up.  Come to think of it, I can’t imagine any show today that is just as wholesome without being too preachy or gimmicky.  “Boy Meets World” also includes one of the best T.V. teachers in the world, Mr. Feeny.  I always thought it was a tad unrealistic that Mr. Feeny was their teacher from 6th grade to college but it made for some many amazing life lessons from the man himself.

This post is inspired by Buzzfeed’s “18 Things We Learned from ‘Boy Meets World‘” and “14 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Boy Meets World.

A Week of Gratitude: Wayne Dyer

Some advice from Dr. Wayne Dyer on being grateful while at the same time inviting more abundance into your life:

Make an effort to be thankful for what you have and who you are each day.  Do this even if you want more and dislike who you are.  Being thankful upstages greediness and focuses your thoughts on abundance.  The universe seems to provide abundantly when we are in a state of gratefulness.  The less we need to have more, the more we seem to get!– Wayne Dyer You’ll See It When You Believe It: The Way to Your Personal Transformation

Study: Creativity Should be Taught as a Course

From the Adobe website

“Eighty-eight Percent of U.S. Professionals Surveyed Believe Creativity Should be Built into Standard Curricula”

Study: Creativity Should be Taught as a Course.

Creativity isn’t limited in art.  It’s also just as important in math and science.

 

Sandy Update

I’m writing to let my readers know that I am safe and sound after Hurricane Sandy.  My family and I only lost power for a few days and I spent some of the time making some art.

However, the people in Lower Manhattan, Breezy Point, Staten Island, Brooklyn and New Jersey need help!

You can donate to Red Cross here. 

Also, NBC Universal stations (MSNBC, NBC Network, USA, CNBC) are broadcasting a benefit concert for victims of Hurricane Sandy starting at 8pm ET.  Music Acts include Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, and Jon Bon Jovi with appearances from Jimmy Fallon and Matt Lauer.

Some Artwork That I Find Amazing

Hey everyone!  I decided to deviate from my usual Instagram Fridays post and feature some amazing artwork that I’ve seen online this week.

This piece was featured in the blog post Friday Finds: Word Up!. by Artsy Forager.  I’m starting to fall more in love with word art and how I can include it into my work.  Plus, the message of this piece is very clear.

 

Member Spotlight: Rik Catlow by Doodlers Anonymous

While most people including myself would recycle a beer or soda can (Note: I actually made a bracelet out of a soda can and wore it all summer) , Rik Catlow uses it as a canvas for his urban pop style art.

 

Finally, I love the style of this piece titled “Be Fabulous” a bohemian art poster by Etsy seller Jenndalyn.  The combination of collage, texture, and color really stand out to me.
