Thank you, Olly. It's easy to fall into worthlessness when from one moment to the next, everything you know and love comes crashing down and your whole life changes. My current situation is offering me an enormous opportunity for growth and expansion, and although I don't yet know how or what that means, or what I have to do, after reading what you wrote, I feel confident that everything is as it should be, and all I need is within me. ✨
I highly recommend reading "The Elephant Whisperer" by Lawrence Anthony. I love elephants too and this book made me love them even more! It's a wonderful and inspiring true story about African elephants.
I've been reading lots about this lately too. I do morning pages every morning and just recently started adding 3-6 things I am grateful for on that day, or what I was grateful for the day before. It's quite a powerful practice. The hard part I guess is keeping at it. But then again, if you just look around, you realise very quickly that there literally is SO much to be grateful for.
That doesn't sound odd at all! I do the same. I lost my best friend to suicide a few years ago and I still talk to him too 😇
Hi Kim, if you go back into the Academy and click on your username in the top right-hand corner, and then click 'My Account', you'll find your certificate there. It might be that it displays your username instead of your full name, but we can easily and happily change that for you if you let us know. I hope that helps 😊
