7 Ways to Get Inspired
1. 100 Mandalas
When I have nervous energy and can’t concentrate on writing, I love to color in mandalas. Awhile ago I found this awesome site that I am so happy to announce is being re-launched. Check it out!
“On the occasion of our 1 year anniversary, I thought this would be a good time to launch a new website, newsletter, and YouTube channel. I can’t wait for you to see the new site. Enjoy looking around and discovering what’s new. You’ll see my secret big DREAM project when you click on the GUIDEBOOK in the menu.” ~Kathryn Costa

2. Word for the Day
I don’t always read it or even open it and it doesn’t always resonate with me – but some days I love getting inspired by it! Consider subscribing to Word of the Day daily emails from Gratefulness.org
“In the time of your life, live — so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite delight and mystery of it.” ~WILLIAM SAROYAN
3. Free Ice Cream
Nothing can be better than the fluff of fresh whipped cream on top of a gooey ice cream Sundae! Now Farrell’s wants to give you a FREE Sundae Every Week. I love Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlours and I have it on good faith, from Michael Fleming (@FarrellsCEO) that they are working on opening a new one in the San Fernando Valley! Tweet him and ask him about it. He is so nice!

4. Inspiration Comes When We Need It
I met Marla Diann at the Connect Her conference this year. She is a remarkable branding and business coach. I hope to have a chance to interview her and introduce her to you on my talk show in 2016. I just can’t wait until then, so if you want to be inspired and learn how to make a difference in your life and your business, I highly recommend you contact her. Do not wait. I am talking to you. Yes you. I know what you need.
5. Think Pink
Aurorae Aqua is a company that I adore. They have been supportive of me and have helped me out with sponsoring give aways on my live talk show. I love reviewing their products. Aurorae inspires me in many ways. Their slogan says it all: “Illuminate your Life” and now you can help support Breast Cancer Research by supporting Aurorae with the purchase of a plush pink towel during the month of October.
“Let us open our minds to new adventures and opportunities. It’s within all of us to reach deep within our souls and visualize the dreams we so deserve. Let’s choose the challenges of life rather than an unfulfilled existence. Be Bold, Proud, Creative and Unafraid. Calm the mind and let these Impressions guide you through your practice. Remember, it’s your yoga.” ~Aurorae Yoga
6. Inspiration can be Found at Breakfast…or Lunch
The Most Important Meals of the Day Start at Sangers & Joe:

Just in time for a warm and blustery Pasadena autumn, Old Town Pasadena welcomes a new neighbor to the beautiful brick-clad historic community. Introducing Sangers & Joe, a vibrant and inviting breakfast, lunch and brunch cafe boasting tasty intercontinental-inspired dishes and beverages opened Thursday, October 15th, 2015.
“Sanger,” Australian lingo for sandwiches and, “Joe,” meaning coffee, of course, combined to create a modern and airy market-style cafe featuring a myriad of tasty breakfast, lunch and brunch dishes, alongside coffee, tea, natural sodas and even a handful of beer and wine options. “The name itself reflects a casual eatery,” says Managing Partner Scott Kay. “We really wanted to create a community-based café that locals will love.”
“When it comes down to it, it is not just about opening a cafe,” says Kay. “The inspiration stems more from partnering and connecting with the community.” And that mantra is just what Sangers & Joe is all about: an approachable neighborhood café for breakfast, lunch and brunch (and dinner… stay tuned!) that offers something for everyone in a warm and welcoming environment.
Sangers & Joe is open every Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, every Saturday from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm and every Sunday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. For more information, please visit www.sangersandjoe.com or call Sangers & Joe directly at 323.553.0563.
