Recall the moments that made you Smile in 2015

Recall the moments that made you Smile in 2015

2015 has been a year when we had moments that made us cry and moments that made us smile. As we come towards the end of the year, I suggest we take time out just for a minute to recall the moments that gave us hope and made us smile. This I hope will help you to be more positive,  feel confident and have hope for a better 2016 filled with more happy moments.

 

What you need to do your One Minute Smilence

* A quiet place where you can sit
* A note pad or plain paper, pen and coloured pencils
* Images of people or experiences that made you smile eg holiday snaps
