And now for something completely different...

So, knowing that I am facing some significant challenges when school starts up again in August (I'm a teacher), I bought three books while at Disney World that approached my challenges from a different perspective. All are written by somebody who is high up in the Disney organization somewhere. One is on developing your leadership qualities, one is on customer service, and one is on maximizing your creativity.

I started with the creativity one. The guy that wrote it produced Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King. It's really easy to read, and funny, and has given me some great food for thought. Namely, what is it that you can't NOT do? I have always thought I was a creative person, and I am, but it kind of bugs me that I can't seem to nail down one activity that I live for.

I can't NOT love my kids. I can't NOT snack on chocolate chips out of the freezer. (Well, maybe I can learn to not do that)

Do all of us have SOMETHING that we can't NOT do?

...Just my random thoughts this summer evening. Hope you all are having a good one.

    Togemon, exactly! That's what I thought. I am creative in lots of different ways...I have to do SOMETHING most every day, even if it is cooking or baking. Must. Create. Something. But...that question "What's your passion?" "What can't you NOT do?" really stopped me in my tracks. I think I am going to be happy doing LOTS of things. :)

    I don't have any ONE activity I live for, but I can't not be creative in SOME aspect. I write, draw, sew, and make jewelry... and I have to do one of the four at some point most every day :)

    That's an interesting concept - what can I NOT do? I will have to give that one some thought.
