A smile on your face

As we approach the end of 2015 it is always nice to reflect on some of the positive things that have happened.

With the constant buzz of 24 hour news and the unending distractions of social media it would be easy to believe that our world was doomed. But it isn’t so…

2015 has been such a challenging and wonderful year for the work of Winning Scotland Foundation. I am very fortunate to have such a rewarding job and none more so than when I get out to hear from the young people that we are lucky enough to work with.

Through our work in Champions in Schools, Positive Coaching Scotland and our growth mindset programme, I am constantly encouraged that we really can make a difference to the lives and ambitions of young people growing up in Scotland. To hear a child say that they now understand that they can improve their lives through hard work and effort is absolutely priceless.

Life is a constant series of challenges and learning opportunities no matter what age you are - but if you approach it with a light-hearted attitude and a smile on your face it is amazing how our perceptions can change.

Take a peek at the picture accompanying this blog, we’d hoped to use this for our Christmas card but one wee boy wasn’t feeling in the mood on the day of our photo shoot!

Have a wonderful and restful festive season and on behalf of the team a big thank you all for your support this year.
