Happiness Lessons Learned from Princess Diana

Just like every person on the planet can tell you exactly what they were doing on  9/11, the same way they can tell you what they were doing the day princess Diana died. I remember vividly that fatal day. I received a phone call from one of my friends. When I heard the news, I was  numb, the air in the room suddenly felt thick, and unbreathable. Tears fell from my eyes and I felt a fluttering on my chest. I had to sit down for a moment and really digest the news. Princess Diana dead? Why? When? How? I felt lost, sad, and sick to my stomach.

I have always admired princess Diana for her philanthropic work and her love for her children. I always felt bad that she had to endure a marriage full of dishonesty, betrayal, and lies.

Diana was a symbol of goodness. Her goodness was molded from caring, kindness, responsiveness, generosity, and charity toward others.

Diana left many lessons behind. She was a free spirit and her dedication to not just Britain but to the world elevated her royal status from Princess of Wales to the Queen of People's Hearts.

Diana always talked about the importance of living your authentic life, being happy and giving back to the community.

One of our favorite quotes from Princess Diana are the ones she talks about happiness and doing random acts of kindness. 

"Nothing brings me more happiness than trying to help the most vulnerable people in society. It is a goal and an essential part of my life - a kind of destiny. Whoever is in distress can call on me. I will come running wherever they are." "Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you."

15 years later I still grieve Princess Diana and miss her deeply. She will always live in my soul and I will always keep her in my memories
and my heart!
