[VIDEO]:The Fountain of Youth

THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH –

Is it possible to feel younger as we get older? Well, for jewellery designer and business man Jerry, from Boulder, Colorado, it certainly feels that way.

He decided to slow down life and find more work/ life balance. And as a result, has made many new discoveries, enhanced his relationships, and found more happiness.

Maybe there really is a fountain of youth, and what a beautiful place to hear about it; at the magical old ‘Chalice Well‘ in Glastonbury, England…

You are worth your weight in Gold!

I hope this finds you well and happy, and having a magical, peaceful holiday during the festive season. But this time of year can also throw up lots of family tensions for many people.  Here are a couple of videos that deal with taking care of Yourself, featuring Daniel Amos.

  1. Your worth is not based on how other people treat you. Remember you are worthy no matter what. Just like gold we are all innately valuable. Video 1 
  2. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Take time out, to slow down, and enjoy the lighter things in life.  Video 2

Here’s to an even brighter, enlightened new year…

A Lovely Letter for you…

Hi there,

In today’s busy, digital world, there’s nothing quite like a handwritten note is there?

What is written from the heart, goes straight to the heart.  

That’s the enlightening idea at the heart of today’s post…

While suffering from a debilitating illness, Jodi Ann Bickley decided to send out heartfelt letters to anyone who needed a reminder of how amazing and loved they were, and to know that they weren’t alone. She created One Million Lovely Letters and has now handwritten and sent over 3000 letters to people all over the world, giving them words of comfort and reassurance. Her heart-felt letters went on to become a Sunday Times Best-selling book. Watch her TED X talk here:

Here’s one of the open letters she read:

Pass on to someone who needs to hear/read these words…

PS. “Enlighten Me…TV” will endeavour to film an interview with Jodi and some of her lovely letters. 🙂

It’s never too late…(or early) to live your dream

Hi there,

Here’s proof from a 100 year old dancer that it’s never too late to live your dream…

Her words of wisdom:

Try to do creative work, because if you’re dealing with creative work you’re doing something new all the time.

Seems that leading a creative life has also led to a long life!

And we’re never too young to start living our dream.

This 14 year old who set up her own creative business at the age of just 8 is such an inspiration too…

What’s your dream? Do tell…

Life Lessons from Reese Witherspoon

Hi there,

In this video Reese Witherspoon, star of new film WILD, talks starting over, believing in yourself, self esteem, grief, loss, letting go, and letting it all out. And even, how we sometimes repress and take on the emotions of others.

An enlightening and touching interview from “60 Minutes” about her life journey, including taking her career back into her own hands, taking a stand for women, and working on projects that really matter:

[VIDEOS]: How do You Learn to Love yourself?

Hi there,

Did you know that today (Feb 13th) is “World Self Love Day”? The idea is that if we feel good about ourselves and value ourselves first, then we’re more able to give and receive love on Valentine’s Day, and generally find it easier to have harmonious relationships (all year round!).

Today’s videos, Produced by ‘Enlighten Me…TV’,  are intended to inspire a little dose of Self Love and Self Acceptance….

Self Worth is no easy task. Feeling Good Enough; easier said than done right? Self Love: A great idea in theory? That’s why Enlighten Me.tv  is on a quest to explore the practical ‘how-to’s, interviewing experts and people from all walks of life.

This first video features one Psychologist/ Family Therapist’s point of view (Dr Menis Yousry)  [a UK interviewee}.  

And here’s a touching and inspiring personal testimony from Comedian and Counsellor (Susan Brame) [an Australian interviewee], who I met on the road, (well, at the beach).

Are you a little too hard on yourself? Could you begin to look at yourself with less judgement, and more self acceptance?

Keep Calm Self Love poster


Wishing you a (self) Loved Up Day! And please do share the videos and help spread the Love!

Tips in Friendship Etiquette [1 min video]

Lessons in Friendship Etiquette –

Is it wise to send a text message to a friend or loved one when there’s something important (or potentially upsetting) to get off our chest?…

Here’s a lesson learned from comedian Susan Brame on thinking twice before sending a text message.

Worth considering: can it wait for a face to face meeting or atleast a phone call?

Also worth remembering that people can react quickly and defensively when instant-messaging back.

It can take courage to say what we honestly feel in person, but it shows how much we value the person and how much we’re prepared to make an effort to work at the friendship.

Thanks to South Australian comedian Susan Brame for sharing her experience.

What life lessons have you learned in friendship or relationships? Do you have a top tip? Or do you have a question you’d like answered? Would love to hear from you.
