Words of wisdom: Sparkling like crystals!

We are like crystals. We need a light to shine upon us to bring out the sparkles within us – Yip Pei Shan

This sparklet of wisdom was inspired by the sunlight shining on the beautiful crystals hanging on my table light. Crystals are beautiful, and their beauty is enhanced when a light is focussed on them. A light transforms the crystal from a clear silence into a myriad of rainbow colours! Furthermore, these colours extend beyond the parameters of the crystal, lighting up everything they touch.

Free Stories-Alive! series: Shan’s sharing! The three sillies!

My beloved friends,

Following SHAN, no matter what in my highly successful free Positive Psychology series, I invite you to my next speech series – Stories Alive!

Be enchanted and transported into my world of stories to enrich your soul and lighten your heart!

I invite you to the first of my Stories-Alive! series in Singapore. Details as follows:

  • Title: Shan’s sharing! The three sillies!
  • Venue: Braddell Heights Advanced Toastmasters, Braddell Heights Community Club, Singapore
  • Date: 23 June 2008
  • Time: 7-10pm

I look forward to seeing you there!

With love,
Pei Shan

PS. My apologies for posting this a day late. Shan’s sharing! The three sillies! was resoundingly received! It could not have been done without my wonderful audience!

The moral of Shan’s sharing! The three sillies! is to take comfort that no matter what we do, there are always others who fare worse off than us. In short, let us look on the bright side of things and enjoy each and every of life’s passing moments!

The tentative schedule for Stories-Alive! is once every two months.

Yes, lot! Yes, Lot! YES, LOT!!! The power of the Positive!

Two weekends ago, I accompanied my beloved mum for a shopping expedition.  On this particular Saturday, the car park that we ventured to park at was packed with cars.  Cars in the car park lots, cars looking for car park lots.  Now, the thing about Mum is she looks on the dark side of things.  Throw a scenario to her, and the probability of Armageddon becomes a certainty.

Knowledge, power, and goodness: an analysis of the attributes of a meaningful life

On 20 February 2008, I wrote on What is the secret to a meaningful life? I was, and still is, enamoured with Seligman’s (2002) idea of what comprises meaning in our lives. Meaning is created when there is furtherance in knowledge, power and goodness.

I believe there is an abundance of knowledge and power, and ever increasing goodness as well. The crux lies in using our signature strengths, and in particular, how well we use our signature strengths. The flow diagram below details the stages of signature strengths.
