Don't Let Them Get to You - But better phrasing?

Trying to come up with inspirational sayings for boundary enforcement, something that can be embroidered or engraved. Some sort of physical embodiment of this saying will be created. The idea should be you can't save everyone, you need to not take on the pain of the world, everything is not on your shoulders, you can say no, et cetera. [more inside]

We ain't got no budget!

CHALLENGE TIME! You are lent some expensive, professional grade video equipment for 18 hours and told that you may use it as you see fit in the time you have. Assuming little to no preparation beforehand, what do you do and/or film with it? Ideally you'd like the owner (or anyone else who sees your work) to be mildly impressed, knowing that you have no actual solo film making experience whatsoever. [more inside]

Your Insight to What Can Jump Start a Person Out of a Hopeless State

I have sputtered down into a rather listless scary hopeless state. I have depression which I am being treated for. My question... What has gotten you up or moving ahead when in the darkest pit? I am taking things about 1 hr at a time right now and was doing conventional things as best I could like exercise and spiritual things, but it is like a watch that has stopped. I guess I want to know what has helped you, no matter how tangential it may seem. I appreciate your time and responses. (I suspect there may have been other links on MeFi over the years on this as this is the human condition and I apologize in advance if it seems like I have been to lazy to look. It has taken me 1 hr to even compose this question.)

Motivational Books, Essays, Tidbits on Going to the Gym

Looking for books that will encourage me to go to the gym. I am making it once a week, sometimes twice. I am okay with memoirs or fitness books. Your own stories or tidbits of advice are helpful, too. Bill Phillips _Transformation_ has a useful chapter as does his older book _Body for Life_. Luckily I work in a library and am the location now. Sooooo, your thoughts, and I will look on the shelves. I have great books on home on what exercises to do, just not things on getting me up and running. (The 30 pounds of fat are getting to me.). BTW, Happy Holidays.
