My very best wishes and thanks to all the bloggers I’ve interacted with this year (and those who kindly gave me an award) . It’s been a great experience to connect with generous, clever, caring people from all over the world.
I hope you all have a wonderful, safe holiday season and New Year. May 2014 bring you closer to The Circle of Courage, to true emotional happiness.
The Circle of Courage portrays the universal human needs for belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity. All four parts of an individual’s “circle” must be strong and intact in order to have a self-secure, pro-social approach to life. I discovered it at a training course on helping teachers better serve children and youth who are in emotional pain from conflict in the family, school, community, or with themselves. The Circle of Courage is a Native American philosophical tool which helps me better understand people of any age. (I’m not implying that bloggers are emotionally unhappy, I’m just wishing everyone balance in these things for 2014) 🙂
And now for something festive. Mr Buble and the Puppini Sisters do this SO well…..
See you next year! 🙂
