I am back from an outstanding conference in Zagreb on well-being, positive psychology and children “1st International Scientific Conference of the Department of Psychology at the Catholic University of Croatia“.
Contentment is when one feels that his/her current resources match or exceed the level of need (Shiota et al., 2006; p. 63).
Contentment is when you savor life and all its contingencies and successes (Fredrickson, 1998).
I AM CONTENT!
… and there are many reasons.
1. This beautiful person and researcher, Professor Nansook Park. Director, Michigan Positive Psychology Center, she believes in people’s strengths and resources in a cross-cultural perspective. An inspiring person!
2. Beautiful people who organized this event, such as Barbara Brdovčak! No one has never written down my full name at the airport, as if I was a star!
3. The Cathedral of Zagreb….AWESOME! I felt overwhelmed (despite I was also tired as you can see..)
4. The Research Team I traveled with and I met there…unique experience for me.
Thanks to the Dean, to Marina Merkaš, PhD; Prof. María Josefa Rodrigo López; Barbara Brdovčak Phd student (my welcomer); Dragan Glavaš Phd Candidate; Prof. Antonietti, Prof. Manuela Cantoia, Alice Cancer Phd Candidate, Chiara Valenti Psy and many others!!!
I feel content!
I literally lose my head for Zagreb! (P.S. try the Museum of Illusions)
I wish you a wonderful week full of moments of joy and people to share them with.
