Recreation

ako-oct4-2013-2

What is recreation? Let us dissect the word: re – creation.  It is a time to create again, is it not? Recreation is defined by dictionary.com as: the act of creating anew. Creating again would involve a period of rest in my humble opinion, where you have a chance to re-charge your creative energy. Are there different kinds of recreations? Of course, there are.  Productive recreation would involve activities that inspire and teach, so that we can learn, grow and expand.

Friday at the end of the day usually starts a span of time called the weekend, where many people enjoy some recreation. What kind of recreational activities will you engage in? Be inspired and make them fabulous activities. TGIF.

By the way, Sunday at 4 p.m. Eastern time, please join me for a live video streaming event on Linqto. I will be hosting a discussion demonstrating various mini fun and creative arts and craft projects  celebrating October’s events: Breast Cancer Awareness, Bullying Prevention, Columbus Day/Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween.

Last Day of September….Autumn Days and Thoughts.

I cannot believe we are already in October, a great month for Harvest and Halloween Events. School-aged children are in the swing of their studies. Football is on a roll. The temperatures are dropping and the leaves are changing colors and falling.

The hottest topics…political campaigning and bullying. Funny how both are in the same arena. For once, I would love to see our candidates take the high road and be role models, especially for our children. The political ad campaigns I have seen are more often than not, mean-spirited. May the best man win through accomplishments, not because one candidate had better smears than the other.

On the flip side, what started out as a bullying prank in West Branch, Michigan to a wonderful teenage girl named Whitney Kropp has turned out to be a positive and memorable time for her. You can read the full feature here: Town Turns Tables on School Prank. I will keep you posted as I learn more.

I feel by talking about things such as bullying and smear campaigns, we can spread awareness. Through awareness comes brainstorming solutions and later positive action steps, like in Michigan. Let us each do what we can to promote a more positive and loving world by being more positive and kind in our own communities. What will you do in October?
