Her performance of Billie Holliday’s ‘God Bless the Child’ was a great reminded that we stand on the shoulders of great women – we have all we need to ‘get our own…get our own’.
Once you focus on something, it’s funny how in the words of Paulo Coelho, ‘the universe conspires’ to make it a reality. I love beautiful things, dark chocolate, antioxidants, architecture, interior design, laughter, music and inspiring people with great energy, so…after some encouragement from my friends and a great conversation with Beata at Rococo chocolate I decided to organise a Healthstyle Hot Chocolate event.
A friend of mine who is one of those people that is passionate about making a difference sent me a digital musical Christmas card from a charity called the Brotherhood of St. Laurence in Australia where she does some work. Like so many charities they don’t seem to be saving up their spirit of giving just for Christmas but are making a difference all year round.
There is no doubt that many organisations and people do great work, but I sometimes ask myself why do we feel the need to travel half way around the world to be ‘nice’ to someone when there are so many people on our doorstep who we could show a little more care and consideration to. Would this not help to make the world a better place too?
