Inspiration

Things that make you feel good, inspire you or stir something deep inside can have a profound effect. Even small things can make a big difference. So, wherever you are be sure to surround yourself with good and positive things. Inspiration can be found in many different places. Here are some of Yvonne’s tips and personal favourites.

  • Daphne Sheldrick is
    an amazing lady. Despite
    adversity and the painful loss
    of her husband David,
    she went on to set up a
    trust in his honour and
    continue the work they had
    started; to protect Africa’s
    gentle giants and wildlife.

    Today, Daphne, her family
    and team work tirelessly
    to carry on this work.
    She is a great inspiration.

  • 'Everything is a Present' Wisdom from Alice, an
    incredible lady who aged
    109 still practised the piano
    for 2 hours each day!
    She survived the concentration
    camps through her music,
    her optimism and her gratitude
    for the small things that
    came her way - a smile,
    a kind word, the sun.

    Aged 104 and 98 she made
    two prize winning films,
    Everything is a Present
    and We Want the Light
    with Allegro Films.

    Truly Inspirational.
