December Reflection from Yours Truly

“You will never forget a person who came to you with a torch in the dark”.

The Laughter Yoga community is one of many lights and shining souls.

I count many as my dear friends and I also work with many of them hoping to work with many more in the future.

Outside the Laugther Yoga community my life is full of beautiful people who are my friends and my family.

It is at times like these, however we have perceived the main part of 2020, that our connections, our near and dear ones hold huge importance in our attempts to maintain our sanity.

When we help each other happiness flows.

Life and living is not about achievements, it is about contribution, and Laughter Yoga teaches you valuable lessons in compassion and kind-heartedness.

‘its a season to be jolly, and to warm each others hearts with gratitude and forgiveness.

December is a month of warmth and celebration, charity and holding peace within your heart. May this year be a reminder that all these December traits must be nurtured and flourish every day of the year.

Wishing you love and kind connectedness in December!

Love, Laughter and Peace
