Sunday reflections....Happiness is the highest level of success.And you'll get there a lot quicker if you focus on what's important to you and stop measuring your success against that of others.REELise Ambassador Liv Phyland keeps it real.  Her insta account will show you her highs, her loves, her moments of joy but it will also reveal her lows, the days she can't get out of bed.And that authenticity is really important.  When we are constantly bombarded with the filtered and the false on social media, we need champions of reality.We need to stop defining our success by social media metrics, by how much money we earn, our job title or by comparison to others.Real success is being happy with who you are, your life choices, your personal growth, your contribution to the world.  No one can impact the planet and those around them exactly the same way you can.Those bright lights, the trappings of fame and fortune don't always bring the happiness you imagine they will.  Do the things you love. Surround yourself with the people that make you laugh and feel good about yourself.  They are the real treasures, the things that make your heart strong. ❤️
Providing a platform to showcase stories by young people about navigating life is at the heart of what we do.It's a powerful way to connect people, to educate and inspire, and to campaign for change, understanding and acceptance.With Pride Month drawing to a close, we wanted to remind you that the REELise Film Festival has an award category dedicated to stories about the challenges (and triumphs) faced in terms of bullying and discrimination by LGBTQI+ youth, proudly sponsored by our friends at Royal Bank of Canada.All you need to get started with your entry for our student Film Festival these school holidays is a smartphone.  Head to https://www.reelise.org.au/the-competition/ to find out more about how to enter.Your stories are important.  Share them.
"The goal of a designer is to listen, observe, understand, sympathise, empathise, synthesise, and glean insights that enable him or her to 'make the invisible, visible'."We put that into practice in creating our virtual reality film about cyberbullying.  Students were involved in every stage of creation from ideas generation to scriptwriting, acting, filming and post production.The result is powerful.  An immersive real life experience of cyberbullying where the impacts that are so often invisible to the bystander become visible and all pervasive.Seen here are two of our volunteers setting up a VR immersion station to build empathy and encourage kindness.Our digital tools give us so many opportunities to have our voices heard and shape change.  Use them.Quote:  Hillman Curtis
