One couldn’t help but savour and celebrate their Canadian-ness as they watched the closing ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics. I did, and everyone I know was bubbling up and cheering with joy. Our athletes performed at their peaks and lived the engaged life of the “authentic happiness” and positive psychology movement whereby they finely matched their olympian capacities/strengths with the world level competitive challenges they faced. The 2010 Olympics opened the world up to more happiness. Coke’s ad campaign that called everyone world-wide to “open happiness” pretty much summarizes my feelings this morning after. Today would be a good day to toast our Canadian Olympians and the outstanding volunteers and organizers, so raise those bottles of Coke and, ready, set, go….”THREE CHEERS”.
