I know we have creams, plastic surgery, all sorts of supposed cures for making our wrinkles go away. No matter what I’m armed with, winning the war on wrinkles is probably a losing battle…but don’t get me wrong I’m certainly willing to stay in the battle! However, I would really would rather spend time in a more cause-related battle, making improvements to the wrinkles in my personality…. Starting with being a more giving person, being more understanding of my husband, more thoughtful to my co-workers, less egotistical, less judgemental, less fearful about the future – Wrinkles or no wrinkles. So when I watched this TED TALK video featuring Jane McGonigal and how her video game helped pull her out of depression following an injury, I was intrigued.
Did you watch it? I am grateful to Jane for her insights and for most of the TED Talks for that matter….Jane McGonigal’s talk gave me something very specific that I could to work on very deep wrinkles that tend to bring me down. I was one of those people who thought playing games were a waste of time. Not anymore, and if I’m not mistaken, my skin looks better too.
