True Happiness is … Something that Comes from Within You
I thought it a novel idea to probe some of the marvellous individuals that I interact with on a daily basis about what True Happiness means to them. This is the first post of what I hope will be an enjoyable and amusing series, which I’ve affectionately titled: True Happiness from the Neighbourhood. Enjoy!
Who: The ever-so-lovely Nancy Brown, our famous Parking Enforcement Officer.
Where: Street side in Yorkville, Toronto, Canada.
True Happiness … “Comes [From] Within Yourself.”
I must say, that this is absolutely and without question, the most wonderful piece of paper that I have ever received from a parking enforcement officer! LOL.
Actually, our local officer, Nancy Brown, really is quite lovely. She keeps our streets safe and free from parking violators, all while maintaining a superbly sunny disposition. This must largely be because she recognizes that, “True Happiness Comes from Within,” and I just couldn’t agree more!
Ever notice that the happiest people are those who exude a kind of inner joy? I believe this comes from a true and pure acceptance of who we are, as well as from our faith in knowing that we do indeed have a place in the world. Whether you happen to be a high-powered executive or a housewife, married or divorced, short or tall, we must remember that these are not the things that define us. We are all Fabulous, Unique, Creative, Beautiful, Wise, Fierce, Intuitive and Worthwhile Beings…
Whether we design handbags, or hand out parking tickets, we are a reflection of our inner light, and we are obligated to share our SPARKLE with the world! So, let that light shine by giving back to the community and supporting the causes that can make a difference … This year the Pink Bedroom Party continues to support The Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute at The Princess Margaret Hospital (the recipient for the last 3 years). The event also supports SickKids Foundation for children with cancer. The goal this year is to raise $100,000. Come to the party , SPARKLE and SHINE and maybe find out for yourself what True Happiness is. – XOXO!
