Forgive and Practice Gratitude
Forgiving others helps you to “drop” excess and unwanted heavy baggage. An attitude of gratitude lifts the human spirit and promotes physical, emotional and spiritual healing. You become stronger when you have less to carry.
Being grateful makes a better world. Turn negative energy into positive and experience what the universe gives back.
Forgiveness is important and is one of the crucial steps to healing. Kelly A. Turner PhD writes about suppressed emotions in her book “Radical Remission.” Make the decision to change your mind and change your life. Let it go.
Find Ways to Enjoy Life
Encouraging others is always a positive action. One random act of kindness multiplies quickly. A happy heart is better able to give and receive kindness. Practice your own healing.
