When I run my workshops on my
"One Hour Holiday" philosophy, often I show a picture of the dandelion flower.
The weed that "ruins" our well-manicured gardens.
That useless thing that we can kick or step on if we feel.
That thing, that if we take a moment to really look at, will show itself for all its beauty and will allow us to really appreciate our surroundings.
I live by my one hour holiday philosophy. I adjust my weeks, my days, my hours to include my daily holiday.
When I speak to my clients, or more accurately, when I listen to my clients, we sometime come to that crossroad where this philosophy, this approach resonates with them and so a new journey begins.
So when I woke up to a wonderful testimonial today (an excerpt below), I realise that Mark Twain was right when he said:
"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."
From a client:
"I really appreciated your kindness and patience with me and non judgement and your very calming presence that me feel at ease from day.
You really helped me to see that life is there to be enjoyed and it's up to me to make sure I do that and have that ‘one hour holiday’ for myself every day.
An enormous thank you to you for your kindness and advice and all the energy and time you put into the sessions, I am so grateful to you!
It was a fantastic experience and was so well timed for me to stop and reflect and most importantly take positive action to bring about positive change!"
