We the people are designed to go with the flow, to get along, to say nothing if we cannot say it nicely. Good advice must of the time, but not always.
Emotional Fitness Tips
Tip one: Remember what matters. Standing up to hate and violence. Practicing kindness, being generous, sharing and caring.
Tip two: Stay safe. Rashness, as Cervantes notes, is not courage, but the denial of danger.
Tip three: Defeat fear with small steps. Each day do three small things that take you out of your comfort zone. Want some examples? If you are shy, say hello to a stranger. Afraid of going against the flow? Post something unpopular on your Facebook page. Some one telling a mean joke? Frown instead of laughing.
Strong self soothing skills help defeat fear. Buy my eBook Self-Soothing to Create Calm in Your Life. Soothes more than a latte, costs less, and lasts longer.

I use the Daily Prompts not just to spark my blog ideas, but to improve my critical thinking skills.
Not sure how to use a Daily Post Prompt as a writer? Here are the steps to get started. Then improve your thinking skills by seeing where the prompt has taken others and how other thoughts fuel your thoughts.
