Potential, Progress and Pride

3 Feb

2014 Presentation

There is no hiding from that warm feeling as more students start to recognise their true potential and work towards the life that they dream of. It was lovely to host an awards ceremony to acknowledge the fabulous progress of some of our students. They really take pride in their work and themselves; they will make a big difference in their communities. It was fabulous seeing their joy and the pride on the faces of their family.

Now we are focussing on driving this program out across London as even with an education system, in all honesty, it is not resourced to provide the holistic education that we offer. The cuts may have slowed down the opportunities of future generations but thankfully, they are picking themselves up and reaching for the stars. Self belief is all important; once it is found, the results are quite magical. These are our true leaders of tomorrow.

That Million Pound Question

30 Jul

That Million Pound Question

Half an hour ago, my daughter asked me if you won a million on the lotto, what is the first thing you would buy? My completely sincere and first answer was , your school shirt and school skirt ready for the end of the summer! She thought I had lost the plot but I explained that as long as she has a smile and her brother does too, and they have enough to eat, there’s no more need in my life. I have it all! 😀 x

Happiness is necessary!

20 Jul

Happiness is necessary!

When you know how great you are, you start to appreciate all of the abundance of great things in your life, blessings are there everyday. Maybe not as you would expect them to be but they there!

If you can dream it…..

20 May

Without dressing it up in frills and bows I would admit, I had a pretty rotten chilhood. It had a few high points and definite blessings but its not one I would wish for my own children. I believe that children should feel the openness and innocence of childhood and take those pigeon steps into life . I can only imagine that this would enable them to feel the changes and gratitude that comes with watching those childhood dreams happen in reality. It gets there. 

My reality is that thankfully I have been able to forgive my childhood and live now. My dreams slowly but absolutely surely happen until sometimes I find myself walking along with the biggest smile on my face, and people are smiling back and I don’t realise it at first but it’s because I’m smiling! No one could really deny it but we don’t really have to look hard to see the great things around us, we just have to want to see them.

I had a book and product launch for my series of story textbooks last Friday. It all seemed a bit surreal to me. Me, a published author and running a creative business, wow! Having a book launch, wow, seeing the support of my oldest and dearest friend Jackie Grieve still there after so many years wow!, I could go on! But I can still think back to that time of being 11 and how sad, lonely and impossible happiness seemed.Jackie Grieve would understand that point because she lived it with me and held me up many times. At the launch my goodness, I laughed, I smiled, my passion for the product was right there. I think what was foremost in my mind was the effect that I know it will bring to so many people’s lives. It will bring changes for children and
Adults. That was my dream, to live in a place of abundant happiness and love.

And you know what, more possibilities arose out of the evening than I could have hoped for. I’m so grateful, there’s so much more to do but it’s part of it. In reality my life was always blessed and now it is even more. I have always watched shows like Oprah and set about using her approach and I read Iyanla Vanzant and drank in the words like food for the soul and it is making sense. I can’t imagine a return to any other state than my current one.

So my wish for this week is that those people, both young children and adults who feel like its all hopeless start to realise that it’s okay to build a dream. Once they have the dream, ask for it and believe it. It’s a process and in recognising the magic of life now, happiness and contentment will follow. See you next week 😀imageimage

The Seasonal Change

13 May

It’s been a week of happiness and breakthroughs. I don’t know if it is because it is getting warmer and sunnier but it is so great when the smiles on faces around me get more frequent and lasting. Last week I spoke of the student who lacked confidence on such a level that I caught tears in her eyes. How great it was this week after a few more days working with her when she literally bounced into the classroom last Thursday with a smile which I swear hit both ears! The enthusiasm was like, wow! Suddenly, she has realised that she can have it too, happiness , contentment and all the things she wants. She seems to have discovered her inner confidence and is ready to use it. Now that’s what I’m talking about!

It is a state of mind that I wish for so many people. It is difficult sometimes to see all of the wonderful things happening around us, I know this as much as anyone else. Sometimes it takes others to point it out to us but I discovered much to my joy that there is no shame in seeing It for myself. We as a society, as a world community, don’t celebrate our positives quite enough.

 

Can you even imagine what a wonderful sight it would be if people recognised that everyone has something to give, something that is needed and wanted. The happiness it would bring to the world would be a thing to behold. This is why I will always be a big fan of John Lennon, he had vision, as did Martin Luther King and so many inspirational others. We actually don’t need to fight over anything. There is plenty for everyone and it comes in so many different flavours too. My students are seeing this now and I couldn’t be more pleased.

I wish you a week of all the flavours of happy you would want. Taste it, it’s lovely! See you next week 😀
