Children in Need 2013 - all campuses“So much has been given to me I have no time to ponder over that which has been denied” – Helen Keller

What a nation we are here in the British Isles! It’s time to stand up and be proud of ourselves. Once again millions of pounds were donated to the Children in Need charity (over £31m). And, all of this when the Philippines’ Disaster Fund was already receiving donations from us! To see the children (and their parents) brought tears to my eyes as well as joy and admiration not only for the spirit they have but also for the love and care around them.

Personally, I don’t know a country that does so much for charity and I am saluting you. I don’t mind if I get challenged on my statement. I know our country deserves the salute.

Sometimes life doesn’t make sense at all especially when we hear and see what is happening in the world as well as personal experience. And life is about passion, finding something that makes you feel you are part of something bigger than yourselves and makes you grateful to be alive.

Gratitude is a great antidote to misfortune as we hardly notice the abundance or little miracles that happen for us.

We can all co-create a better world that we know in our hearts is possible. It may not happen in our life-time (we may not see the fruits of this) but we can enable the steps toward for generations to come.

See yourself as lucky and nurture yourself as you deserve it because you’re worth it.

And finally, be happy with what you have while working for what you want!


PS. I’ve confirmed the Southend venue for next year’s Self Development Day Retreats. To find out more or to book your place, see my website here.
