The Dalai Lama said, "We need an education of the heart." Many of us agree and most want it. To have it, we need to feel inspired, and we need to feel inspired day after day. But with our hectic schedules and the ups and downs of life, this is no easy task.
One way to make a deep and lasting impression is to promote a well-thought out inspirational message that will help everyone start the day off right; a kind of Wheaties for the soul. Just spouting any message won’t work, but combining a thoughtful message with a beautiful image that portrays an analogy, works incredibly well.

They use good wording to express the idea. They help us understand a complex concept. They cause our "ideal" self to make our "actual" self be mindful. I spent many hours researching well thought out and meaningful messages. When I found the messages, I searched for good images that would bring home the point. The result of this hard work was my 2019 Inspirations Calendar.
According to Science, short bursts of inspiration last for a day. Something wonderful happens, though, when they are repeated over and over in a slightly different way. The repetition creates a good habit. The good habit generates positive thinking. Over a period of time, the positive thinking gets internalized. Long term positive thinking has been proven to manage stress and improve health.
