About Us

Don't ask what the world needs. 
Ask yourself what makes you come alive 
and go out and do that.  Because what the world needs 
are people who come alive."

Howard Thurman

Thurman's quote is one of my favorites. I often find myself asking that question. It especially helps when I am feeling lost, frustrated and confused. When I remember what lifts me up, it is like an arrow that points to what path to take.

These are difficult times. It is easy to get discouraged, and lose hope. Keeping our energy up feels more important now than ever has before.

This website consists of posts from contributors who share what makes them come alive. We can help lift each other up.

What Makes Me Come Alive Mind Map

Want to know what makes you come alive? This is my Mind Map for the topic What Makes Me Come Alive. I have found it to be so helpful during tough times, when I lose my way, when I forget what lifts me up and fills me with joy. I printed mine as a large canvas print and have it hanging above my desk.

Want to make one of your own? You can purchase your own canvas wrapped Mind Map, for you to write on in our What Makes Us Come Alive Store.
