    How to make your very own I Don’t Suck file:

    It can be general or specific—A lot of my clients make general files with notes from loved ones or former students/clients/bosses of theirs or other supports. Or magazine clippings that remind them of goals or qualities they have. I am currently making one that is therapy related as a way to transition from my most recent job and prepare for my move abroad. It has notes from clients, supervisees and evaluations.

    What you need: It can be as low maintenance as a file folder stuffed with notes or as high maintenance as a well-crafted scrapbook. What’s important is that you have a place to go when you need a pick-me-up.

    You can gather things to build it—don’t have what you’re looking for? Start gathering!

    • If you have a friend or family member you trust to be supportive of you, see if they’d be willing to write you a note about what they like about you.
    • Next time you’re looking at a magazine or reading a blog and see something that resonates with you—save it for your file. Truth resonates, and you can’t recognize something that you don’t have, so if there is something you read or see that you admire and relate to, there’s something of you that’s in it.
    • Write yourself some affirmations when you’re feeling good—make your own or use song lyrics or quotes.

    In the Palestinian village of Bilin — near the West Bank city of Ramallah — residents have planted flowers in hundreds of spent Israeli tear gas grenades collected after clashes with Israeli security forces.

    The garden is “meant to show that life can spring from death.”

    Gotta say this is a special addition to the Unconsumption archive of weaponry repurposing examples
