What is Happiness?
Happiness does not depend on having more things, getting your own way or doing what you think it should. Happiness comes from knowing that while we cant make an unhappy person happy, we are constantly and inevitably affecting other peoples wellbeing. All our encounters with others lift their spirits or lower them. Taking this power seriously is a crucial way of growing into our highest potential. We need to shift our thinking from 'What will make me happy?' to 'How can I most positively affect the world around me?'. Being a source of happiness, support, interest, comfort and wellbeing for others will transform our own lives.

Turning 16 and Sweet 16 at that!

Well my youngest has just had her sweet 16th birthday. Not one but two parties. Her first party was a sleepover with her friends, they all dressed up and went out to dinner by themselves. Very grown up. Then a week later on her actual birthday she had her family dinner out at a local restaurant. Her dad made her a huge Chocolate Mud cake. It was all great fun, but im glad its over for another year. What I want to know is "where has my baby gone?" she is growing up so quick and im feeling old.
Starting from the left is Bec, Jazz, Wendy, Madi, Penny and Rennae, most of these girls have been friends for 4 years. It was great to see them all dressed up and looking so grown up.
