This week I discovered the work of Shane Koyczan. WOW. Shane is an award winning Canadian poet, author and performer. In 2013 Shane released an animated video of his poem To This Day and also shared the poem at a TED Talk. The video/talk describes Shane's experience of bullying and how he survived it. The video has had over 13 million hits. Shane has also produced a video called Instructions for a bad day. It is beautiful. I've saved it to my phone and listen to it when I am having a shitty day. I take warmth and strength from listening to it. In the section below I have posted his TED talk, then his animated video, followed by his Instructions video. I will also post his Instructions video somewhere here as as permanent fixture - I think lots of people will get something positive from listening to it. Shane also has a stack of inspiring stuff on his website: www.shanekoyczan.com
