I was lucky enough to be invited along as a guest to present an Author Talk at Merrimac State School last Thursday in celebration of Wellness Day.
What’s this you ask?
It is a day dedicated to exploring, educating and informing our young ones about wellbeing, self-love, self- acceptance and nurturing one’s self in their own space.
A day planned with wellness activities and informative educational tools and tips to create mindful self-worth and wellbeing.
This year the Titians came along with the Gold Coast Suns and they talked about the importance of exercise and how good it is, not only for your body but your mind.
There was an interactive yoga lesson, crystal doodling, creative lunch box drawing, dance, music and I presented a little presentation on what I do, how I do it and most important WHY I do it.
Why do I do what I do?
Because I love what I do and I do what I love, it is as simple as that.
I love to be creative, I love writing, I love colour, I love drawing, painting and I love the way it makes me feel. And this is what it is all about. Finding in your life what ticks the boxes. No matter how down or sad I feel, the moment I pick up my pen to create it flips around. I start to feel expressive, explosive and decorative all in one!
I have been lucky enough to discover my WHY and I now live my life following my WHY!
I also did an interactive lesson teaching the kids how to “Create your own character”, they absolutely loved learning and realising they were in total control of creating something that is wholly and souly theirs. It was really cool to watch the revelation on their little faces.
When they realised in that moment that nothing is out of reach and it’s up to them, it was like a light bulb moment for many of them and I was proud to be a part of that. I really enjoyed my day as a visiting Author.
