WWB’s Monday Morning Pow-Wow Inspires Self-Enlightenment…

 

Good Morning World Wise Beauty!

Did you hear the Pope speak the last couple of days? Every Public presentation he made was infused with simple life wisdom. No matter what your religious beliefs are, the compassionate values Pope Francis shared are so universal and can be practiced by anyone.

I think the biggest message the Pope had for all of us, is we are not defined by our work, education or socio-economic status. We all have intrinsic value and something to contribute to the world, and it should be our personal mission to find out what that is. At World Wise Beauty we call this being a Passioneer!

 

9/28/15 Passioneer’s Pow-Wow Wisdom: Work does not define who you are …

Anna Quindlen’s quote featured for our Pow-Wow, came from a school commencement address she made many years ago, and then it went viral via e-mail before ‘viral’ was a social marketing term. The speech was so well received, it inspired her to write a non-fiction book entitled ‘A Short Guide to a Happy Life’.  In this treasure of a book, the bestselling novelist and columnist, reflects on what it takes to “get a life”—to live deeply every day and from your own unique self, rather than merely to exist through your days. It is still one of my favorite little books to give anyone contemplating meaning in their lives and one I love to read over and over. Make no mistake, it’s not just for graduates.

 

For more inspiration from Anna, you can read her recent memoir ‘Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake’ which is sure to inspire you to be comfortable in your own skin, and craft your own spirit. She is a true iconic World Wise Beauty!  Hope to have her join us for a WWB chat one day soon…
