06 Dec What I learned about happiness & living a great life from my daughter’s end of year speech night
In February 2012 I'm very excited to be delivering a full day workshop for those of you who reside in Sydney focusing on how to live a great life.
You can find out more and even register HERE but in short, we will (among many other things) be talking about and learning how to…
confront fears and demons
forgive and move on from past mistakes
create a vision of a positive future
identifying and leanring how to utilise our strengths
Not surprisingly, I've been giving quite a bit of thought to the content and format of this new and exciting workshop and I'm pleased to say that it's coming along very nicely. But just last night, while listening to the presentations and speeches at my daughter's end of year presentation, I was excited to think about, even more than I normally do, a particular aspect of happiness and living a geat life…
…and that was – celebrating life and lives in all their diversity.
One of the many things I love about my daughter's school is that it's incredibly culturally diverse. There are so many different types of girls from so many different backgrounds with so many different personalities and thankfully, her teachers and increasingly, her friends respect each and every one of them for who and what they are.
Wouldn't life be so much better if we all were able to do this?
Would we all enjoy more happiness and live better, more fultilling lives if we could respect others AND ourselves for who we are in all our different ways?
So that's my tip for today…celebrate who you are and find happiness within yourself in the wonders of you and your particular idiosyncracies!
