Happiness can look different to each of us. I find that I am happiest when I feel positive about myself. It may be because I have achieved something I have long striven for or simply because I feel content in my own space.
Perhaps the key is to take time to recognise and appreciate what is working well in all the different areas in our lives – health, relationships, work. I like to take time to think back to times when I felt truly happy and these thoughts instantly lift my mood and give me the resilience to move forward. I may not always achieve all I set out to do but I know I will achieve something and I can build on this.
One of the moments in time, which always makes me feel a fizz of happiness, when I am conducting a Wedding ceremony is the moment a couple turn to each other and exchange their promises. In the same way I find my heart melting when, during a Naming ceremony, a parent looks at their child and expresses their hopes for the future. It is at times like these I know why I became a Celebrant.
Choosing a Celebrant to help you create that special ceremony is an important step towards making your occasion a really memorable one. Why not take advantage of the free initial meeting I offer ? I believe it is important to meet informally to discuss your ideas and what I can offer. Meeting also gives us an opportunity to explore the type of ceremony that would best suit your needs.
