Hello from Toni  – in August

We had great response to the new format so I’m going to continue with it.

I have such a great Hello this month – everything from the BEST EVER bread recipe (yes I know recipes are not usually my thing), a continuation of the failure theme in my blog called Failure the Gift in Shitty Wrapping Paper and some brilliant videos on the subject.

I’m also offering you a quick simple way to help me.  🙂

HOW A YELLOW CAR SAVED ME

I emailed about our new ‘baby’ a few days ago. If you didn’t get to watch this very funny 4.5 min video – please watch it now.

You’ll likely laugh and it may well relieve a whole lot of the stress you are under.

BRILLIANT MENTAL HEALTH TOOL

This little video is a brilliant mental health tool – and we’d like as many people to benefit as possible.

FOR THAT TO HAPPEN WE NEED YOUR HELP

You can help by sharing this link far and wide on Facebook, via email or however you like to communicate – thank you for your assistance, you’ve just done me the best of favours and I appreciate it.

LIFE-CHANGING BREAD

I think that is a great name for this amazing bread – I make it gluten free, vegan, sugar free, grain free and it is so, so, yummy!

Being gluten free has meant years of tasteless spongy bread and now… this!

THE BRIGHT SIDE

I was very happy to be asked to speak with Ellen Fanning on ABC’s Radio National ‘Life Matters’ program recently. I’m a Radio National listener and a big fan of her program (and her!) so it was an honor. Interviews can be very tricky and they can go well or down the tubes depending on the interviewer – Ellen is good at her job so you’ll enjoy the 10 min interview.

Ellen and I got to chat for a while after the show – she was funny, smart and quick as a whip – delightful company. Click the pic of the lovely Ellen Fanning to hear the interview which was gorgeously called ‘The Bright Side’.

THE DELIGHTFUL FIK SHUN

This video just makes me smile and laugh, it is a joy to watch.  However this kid has a story that is very inspiring. At 17 he started dancing on the street for $$. A while later he entered So You Think You Can Dance and won – dancing brilliantly all styles of dance through the comp without previous experience. I think he’s wonderful. Go check out some of his other videos.

WINNING vs SUCCESS  – TED TALK

John Wooden gives a simple, touching, wise, funny talk – one that we’d do well to watch every few months. Teachers you’ll especially love this one. I think we’ve become very confused about winning and success and this would be a big reason we find ‘failure’ difficult.

MY SECRET ADDICTION

One of my secret addictions is watching the auditions from the many talent shows around. I rarely have any interest in watching what happens after the audition, it isn’t who wins that fascinates me.

I think what attracts me is the nakedness of all that hope, the risk of being so vulnerable with their dreams, and the incredible willingness to fail so publicly. Gamu is one of my favourites.

MORE ON THE FAILURE THEME

Should you like to explore the topic of failure a little more you may like to check out my blog post I’ve just written on the subject. Failure, the Gift in Shitty Wrapping Paper or catch up on the first blog I wrote on the topic called Why Failing is Fabulous.
