Laughter Truly IS the Best Medicine!

September 20, 2011

Laughter Yoga - Yes, you guessed it - HILARIOUS!

Yesterday, I had the good fortune to be invited to train as a Laughter Yoga Facilitator. The training took place, not on a beach like this photo (because this is Ireland!), but at the Hope Cancer Support Centre. A group of therapists and volunteers came together to train to facilitate Laughter Yoga. We knew nothing about it. We were apprehensive and curious, and we were so, so lucky!!! It was fantasic! We laughed and laughed and laughed. I felt silly, I felt relaxed, I felt light-hearted, I felt just bloody great!

I tried to explain what the workshop had been like to Tony and the lads when I got home, but they thought I was mad! I think I am going to have to get them to experience it for themselves. Tonight, I am going to see if I can get a laughter session going at home … I’ll report back!

Wishing you love and lots and lots of laughter!

A Weekend of Continuous Special Moments!

September 20, 2011

My God, what a weekend! It was just one Special Moment after another!

It started off really well when a lovely client arrived for her session at the Cancer Support Centre with a beautiful gift for me. Well, you could have blown me away! I was absolutely thrilled and touched with her thoughtfulness. It made my day!

On Saturday, the Irish rugby team had an incredible win against Australia in the Rugby World Cup, and the buzz was amazing! That was followed by a visit from my gorgeous sister, Debbie, and we had a faulous walk along the banks of the River Barrow at Graiguenamanagh. That evening we headed to a friend’s house to help celebrate their son’s 18th birthday and we all had a great night.

On Sunday it was party time again – this time at our house. Dublin were playing in the All Ireland Football Final and we decided to have a party in Kilkenny – to make our living room into a Mini Croke Park for the afternoon. We had people from Kilkenny, Donegal, Dublin, Wexford and Cork, but on Sunday afternoon – if they wanted to get fed – they all shouted for Dublin! The craic was great, the buzz was fantastic, and Dublin WON!!!!!

I’m delighted to be blogging about this weekend just gone, because it was a cracker, and now it is preserved for posterity and will be remembered.

Here’s to happy times, celebrations, and fantastic sporting events!
