In the first part of my keynote speech, I told the parable of Dear Old Uncle and his lost key. Long story short — he was looking for his key outside, under a street lamp, when he was well aware that he’d actually lost it inside his house. But because his house was dark, he reasoned it would be easier to find it outside.

And isn’t that just so human? All too often, we know that the key — to joy, to peace, to everything — is within us, but it seems like a lot of work to find it and we’re not even sure how to start. So we just look for something outside to bring us joy and pin all our hopes on that.

We’ve got a good metaphor going, so let’s play this out. We know the key is within. Within what? Well, within ourselves. And within our metaphorical home. So let’s go in there and get it!

Here’s Part 2 of my speech.

The key is within you — but it may take some renovation to find it
