Changing the Plan – When no one else believes
We are living through strange times and a belief in a brighter future is slim for many but reflect upon when you were a child. We believed in myths and fantasies irrespective of whether an adult laughed at us or no. Children still believe in such myths today. But it is not the myth or fantasy that is important. What is important is that every child believes in hope and joy, the triumph of good over evil and that happiness will prevail. As adults, so many of us have lost that spark of belief having succumbed to the negativity of others. But yet as a child the opinion of others did not matter. How did the visions in our mind and the joy in our hearts fade. My presentation wishes to explore what was the turning point and how we can re-ignite that belief.
