Getting awe-struck in March

March 2, 2017

It’s that time of the month when we talk about the positive emotion as part of Flourish Inside Out for the new month. For March, our focus is on Awe. What is awe? I’m sure we’ve all experienced a sense of awe at some point in our lives. It’s that sense of ‘wow’-ness. Okay, so that’s not the technical definition.

In January, I successfully took a photo each day as part of my Flourish Inside Out challenge. I must admit, I’m already noticing how observant I’ve become daily as I try to look for something to capture. Something that will instil hope in some way. I’ve read four books in January and reviewed…

January is about Hope #FlourishInsideOut

January 2, 2017

If you’ve been following this blog in the last month, you might have heard about my intention to Flourish Inside Out in 2017. Each month, I will be focussing on one positive emotion and sharing pictures on Instagram. You are welcome to join in on the project by taking photos or sharing words, quotes, drawings on Instagram (#flourishinsideout) or the Facebook group. The theme for January is Hope. What is hope? In the early 90s, positive psychologist Charles R Snyder and…
