The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by.Alek Wek, a South Sudanese-British model and designer
Life is often very serious, full of important decisions and things to do. Now that our connectivity is so great via the Internet, work and other serious aspects of our daily lives can go on without stopping, through weekends and even from our sunbeds on holiday. Even if we set our phones aside to try to ignore the emails and messages that pursue us, it can be very difficult to let go of work and celebrate the opportunities for rest, refreshment, fun and joy. Birthdays, faith celebrations, family reunions are now all invaded by our phones as we allow them ‘front and centre’ positions on dining tables and yet many people do not object to this, especially as our phones are usually also our cameras.
Are we losing the art of true celebration?
Let’s talk about this.
Questions we might discuss are:
- What is your favourite celebration? Why?
- Do you like dressing up for special occasions?
- How do you and your family like to celebrate?
- What local festival in your area or country would be most interesting for a foreign visitor, do you think?
- Is your culture an encouraging culture which celebrates the success of others or is it a culture that tends to downplay the success of the individual?
Come and join our Talk About on Monday 12 April at 7.30 pm, share your idea and make friends.
