3. I constantly worry about doing something to save the planet - that I should be out

there, fending off ivory poachers, or saving the whales or the rainforest or... (my planet saving fantasies usually revolve around animals and the environment, with some very young or old humans thrown in there because they're so vulnerable).

However. I've decided to try to do what I enjoy and am good at, and donate money to those causes, and volunteer.

I can't really handle the planet-saving stuff emotionally, but I can and will give lots of money (whenever I earn it from my wonderfully creative skills ) and give my time, when I am sure I won't break down in tears or explode in rage at the inhumanity of it all.

Just curious, Neoma - why would you think using your talents wouldn't challenge your mind? Is it because it comes naturally? Well, if so, use your talent and then try to learn Japanese or design a beautiful garden or something - challenge your mind in another way. It doesn't have to be the way you earn your living.
