Happiness is bigger than just one person - kikki.K

â€œNo matter what point in life you are at, you donâ€™t have to be at a certain point to want to be more happy,â€ said happiness coach, Robyn, who presents weekly workshops at kikki.K.
Thirteen women sat at the back of Brisbaneâ€™s Queens Plaza store, beneath the beautiful blue stationary.
I sat in one of the simple white chairs, amongst mood boards and notebooks inspiring me to channel my inner child who was once so carefree and always in high spirits.
I thought back to my New Years resolution, which I promised to myself only two months ago. This year gratitude for life and its all-encompassing journey has meant more to me than it ever has.
It also seemed to resonate deeply with others around the room, including some who were looking for a fresh start and ready to welcome new beginnings.
The workshop was a wonderful reminder to look for inspiration on the streets, in the cafÃ© around the corner from work and in the everyday duties of life.
As the happiness coach spoke about reverse bucket lists and cheerful vision boards, I felt grateful for this fresh approach to life.
No matter how small or large ones ambition may be, it is important to remain open to the world.
â€œHappiness is bigger than just one person,â€ said Robyn.
The room was given a reminder of this when they were handed a kikki.K happiness journal to plan and achieve new goals.
As we opened the book I started to think about hot air balloons and other exciting â€˜dream listâ€™ ambitions I could write down.
The inscription on the front of the journal, â€˜do more of what makes you happyâ€™ will be a daily motivator for many.
kikki.K had created an encouraging space for Brisbanites to do more of what makes them smile.
