This week I look at Shawn Achor’s Super Soul Sunday talk “The Life-Altering Power of a Positive Mind” and discuss how I feel it relates to our healing.
How we define emotional healing, affects so much of our healing journey, how we navigate it and how we celebrate our success along the way.
You aren’t just being healed but you’re also the healer. You have to learn how to take yourself by the hand and figure out what you need.
Sometimes we expect healing to magically occur, but it requires our active involvement.

There is a very big lie that abusers tell their targets. It is the biggest lie of all. This lie tells the target: this is all your fault!
Toxic people take no blame, and love playing the victim. So whatever they do, be ready for it to be your fault!
