"When We Get our Glow ON, we CAN Light UP our world!" ~ Bets

GloWoman Workshop for Independent Schools Marketing Association

On a gorgeous Autumn day in May, I drove out to Somerset College in the Cape Winelands to present a GloWoman workshop for the front of house staff, hosted by the Independent Schools Marketing Association of South Africa (ISMA).

As the women walked into the venue and sat down, I recognised one of them as the daughter of my elderly neighbours. I was so excited to see her because her father, who's in his late eighties, featured several times in the talk I was about to give!

He was my hero in the section that I cover on Yes, of course it's ok to ask for help! Because he came to my assistance many times over the years that we were neighbours.

In fact, he showed me (I was already in my 50s!) how to open a can of tuna...... well yes, I know that sounds ridiculous! 😀 But after going ten rounds with the can opener, crying and whimpering with frustration, I went over to knock on his door and ask for help..... He simply turned over the can and opened it - easy-peasy!
Who knew there was a "right side"???!!  😂

This pic is in my presentation - the can of tuna after I'd had a good but unsuccessful go at it!

And how wonderful to have my neighbour's daughter in the workshop!

This is the text message she sent me afterwards:

"Hi Bettina. So lovely to see you today and how wonderful your talk was - very inspiring! So pleased that you spoke about my dad and how helpful he was."
 I love the quote from Ram Dass, "We are all just walking each other home." 

I really do believe we are all here to shine a light for each other. And when We Get our Glow ON, we CAN Light UP our world!
