The Awesomeness of Youth

Spreading Joy and Celebration
Youth can provide us all great wisdom.
This article in the Calgary Herald reminded me of why we are really here. To live in gratitude, joy and celebration.
The wakening of awareness begins with gratitude.
The gratitude to know we are creative beings. With mindful actions and conscious awareness we can create personal experiences of abundance, joy, and celebration. And it starts with spreading around a little joy and happiness.
Youth volunteers spread cheer and happiness along Stephen Avenue
Stephen Avenue became “Happiness Avenue” on Saturday afternoon as dozens of youth volunteers took to downtown Calgary to spread cheer and good tidings.
About 50 people, between the ages of 12 and 18, waved signs bearing compliments such as “you’re beautiful” and “have a nice day,” which garnered supportive honks from passing vehicles and brought smiles to shoppers and brunch-goers along the 8th Avenue walkway.
The teens are members of Youth Central, which is part of the Youth Volunteer Corps, an international youth service organization with programs across Canada and the United States.
Groups in each municipality were tasked with coming up with a special event for the annual Get Happy Project on Saturday to bring happiness to locals in their community.
