I'm Emma, and I'm married to Alex. This is us.
We live in a cosy little house in Maidenhead and we met while both working in media in London. Since then I have put my love of learning to good use, first in adult learning and development and most recently by re-training as a primary school teacher. Life as a teacher certainly throws up its fair share of challenges and takes way more than its fair share of my life, time and brain, but I love it and that's what matters.
I also love life, my husband and food. And squirrels. And going for nice walks. And photography. And playing board games at Christmas.
But I've also always been super curious about people too. What they do, say, think and feel. And why. Not least of all what I do, say, think and feel. And why. That remains a mystery, albeit one I'm slowly unravelling!
As part of my unravelling (not literally, I'm still pretty much holding it together) I've become even more fascinated in all the various worlds of psychology, NLP, positive psychology, meditation, mindfulness, hypnotherapy, and so the list goes on.
Especially the concept of happiness, what it means and where it comes from.
So I've decided that 2012 is going to be my project happy and I'm upping my efforts to delve more deeply into the area to see what I can find, and then I shall be sharing all on this blog as a mixture of random ramblings, experiences, and all sorts.
I should probably point out I'm not in any way qualified to write about any of this other than 1. I have a mind; 2. I like to speak it and 3. I like being happy.
So, here we go...
