I just ran across this You Tube video of author Kelly Corringan speaking to the eighth grade class at Hamlin School.
Kelly's book, The Middle Place, captured my heart a few years ago. I haven't read her latest work, Lift, yet, but it's on my list.
As I watched Kelly address these eighth grade girls, I thought, "I wish someone had spoken to me that way when I was their age."
The Kelly Corrigan three-part formula for happiness:
1. Make yourself useful
2. ... doing something hard
3. ... with good people.
I love her words about choosing good people to be with, and how hard it is to "find your people."
She also talks about FLOW... how creative, productive people always have a project going that's challenging. And how all of this relates to happiness.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
