Lunch Speaker: Amanda Dickson, KSL Newsradio
Dickson talked about happiness, and how, perhaps it is a commodity not just a state of being. She says that you can't wait till circumstances are perfect to be happy, but that you need to enjoy life as it happens. The basis of happiness is in forgiveness. Not for some spiritual lofty reason, but in order to move beyond the injuries and insults of daily life. Forgiving self and others allows one to be happy in the day or the moment. Releasing the self-talk and rumination of 'bad things that happened so I can't be happy' by forgiving and moving on. Pretty interesting actually.
