“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” --Sophia Loren
* Write a poem about what you want from the rest of your life. Don't worry about rhyme scheme or other rules, this one is for your eyes and heart alone (unless you want to share it, in which case, do!)
* Draw a picture of one thing that is great about your life. Worry as much about getting the drawing perfect as a four-year-old would. Stick figures are fine.
* Remember that thing you used to love to eat when you were a kid but you haven't had it for years? Have it this week. If it's not around anymore, get creative with ingredients and see how close you can get to making it yourself.
* Send somebody a postcard with an enigmatic message on it. Something like, "This reminded me of that time at the McDonald's! Remember how much that old man laughed? Get in touch, it's been too long! - B. It'll give them something to think about for days.
* Get 20 one-dollar bills or one pound coins (or whatever your currency is) and as you go about your day leave them at twenty different places where somebody will find them. You'll have made twenty people's day brighter.
* Make up your own things to do, after all this is about being creative. And feel free to share your ideas in the comments.
