The Crossroads of Should and Must: An Intelligent Illustrated Field Guide to Finding Your Bliss

“Should is how other people want us to live our lives … choosing must is the greatest thing we can do with our lives.” “Does what goes on inside show on the outside?,” young Vincent van Gogh despaired in a moving letter to his brother while floundering to find his purpose. “Someone has a great fire in his soul and nobody ever comes to warm themselves at it, and passers-by see nothing but a little smoke at the top of the chimney.”

Moving Beyond The Blame Game
100 Thank Yous
Why do we waste so much energy looking for someone to blame when something doesn't go our way? Dr. Brené Brown provides us with valuable insight into how the constant search for blame limits the meaningfulness of our relationships. Brené Brown is a highly respected researcher on the subject of vulnerability. She has mastered using the art of storytelling and self-disclosure to bring life and practical meaning to the data she's collected and analysed for over 10 years. Equally important is that Brené also shows us it's okay to laugh at ourselves as we acknowledge our imperfections.
For a year and a half, artist Lori Portka painted her gratitude through individual pieces of art for 100 people who have made a difference in her life. In her effort to truly live a life of gratitude, Lori learned that gratitude grows, and grows, and grows. "The more that I focused on gratitude, the more I was grateful for." This beautiful film captures Lori's motivation and some of the reactions from the recipients of her gratitude at an emotional exhibition of the 100 paintings. "One person can make such a difference."
