Day Twenty Two

Day 22, Thursday: Share a video clip that you are loving at the moment.  It could be as simple as a song on YouTube or an inspirational speaker on TED Talks.

I had a good time researching for the topic of the day. I certainly don't watch as many TED Talks as I would like! But boy, are they inspiring! Above is a short talk by Dan Gilbert, "author of Stumbling on Happiness, [he] challenges the idea that we’ll be miserable if we don’t get what we want. Our "psychological immune system" lets us feel truly happy even when things don’t go as planned." Ten years on, TED have contacted Gilbert. He has some interesting words to say in regard to his TED Talk of 2004, well worth a follow-up read, I think!

I also found this little gem hereBrother David Steindl-Rast speaks -quite beautifully- of happiness. He suggests happiness is born of gratitude. He asks us to be mindful in our lives, to look for those little moments. A short clip I think most of us would find truly inspiring.
