The Day Brightener

Because everyone has the right to be truly free and happy

The Birth of The Day Brightener

Hello and a very warm welcome to the beginning of the Day Brightener journey.

To start, let me tell you how this chapter in my life, the Day Brightener concept, and this blog all came about.

A few months ago I realised that in my quest for career and family I had lost touch with my own spirit.  I thank grace for my husband, family and friends, and the wisdom of Jane Teresa Anderson, who through dream alchemy helped me realise I needed to reconnect with my cheeky nature. One of the first alchemy tasks was to write a story about ways I could do this.  Here is the final passage from my story.

Or maybe I could just be a “day brightener” for a workplace – wandering the floors chatting to people and being cheeky to brighten their day.  There are an awful lot of dark dreary work sites that could do with some cheering up.

This came from the sadness in my heart at how many people are mistreated in their workplaces.  I have encountered so many wonderful, warm-hearted people that are treated with disrespect and disdain, damaging their sense of self-worth.  I just wish there was a magic I could bring to make them realise how wonderful and treasured they truly are.

Then, like magic, from another dream, a little imp appeared.  Like an instant gift he became He-He the Day Brightener. An alchemy task to write a blog about He-He resulted in the first of his adventures – Monday Morning Yellows.

From this first story a flood gate of creativity and inspiration has been opened.  It is like a veil has been removed from my eyes – everywhere I turn I see people, situations and scenes where the little yellow fellow can bring his love, hope and peace.  These become the material for my stories –  The Adventures of He-He The Day Brightener.

My wish is that these stories may bring a little brightness to your day.

Stay posted – there will be more to come!

I know over time these stories, and The Day Brightener itself will evolve and grow, and find new ways to touch the lives of more people.  I hope that you will join me in this journey.

    Hi Belinda,

    This is a very sweet and noble venture. I wish you the best of luck and look forward to the next installment. If you need a goofy basset to bring a smile to anyone’s face, you know where to come. I would offer Captain Jack but he is too much of a landlubber!
