Moments of Gratitude (Positive Psychology)

I recently met a person who introduced me to the concept of Positive Psychology . I like to call him Positive John. He is an amazingly kind and empathetic man with a passion for sharing knowledge and helping people to find more confidence and joy in their lives.

In a nutshell.....
"Positive psychology is the study of happiness. Psychology traditionally focused on dysfunction—on people with mental illness or other psychological problems and how to treat them. Positive psychology, by contrast, is a relatively new field that examines how ordinary people can become happier and more fulfilled."

So, what I really love about it is that it focuses on a persons strengths instead of their weaknesses. It is so powerful and I am very grateful to have the opportunity to introduce these concepts into my life.

Moments of Gratitude (Messages from the Universe)

This week 52 weeks of Gratitude has become Moments of Gratitude. This reason for this change is simply that I wanted a bit more freedom in when and how many gratitude posts I do.

I went for a walk this week in my lunch break along the breakwall. As I was walking along with the intention of being in the moment, I was not really fully succeeding I must admit, with thoughts and doubts still playing on my mind. Then suddenly, it was as if this huge rock jumped out in front of me........... I stopped in my tracks and on the rock was written "Be HAPPY 4 this moment... 4 this moment in your life". It was as if this rock was written for me to read on this day. I stopped walking and sat quietly beside the rock and relished in these words and the beauty that surrounded me, feeling grateful for this message.

Moments of Gratitude (Community)

I want to espress my gratitude this week for the wanderful community that I have found through my Yoga Practice. It is wanderful to be around like minded people and enjoy that sense of support, friendship and community. xoxo

Each of us is a being in himself and a being in society, each of us needs to understand himself and understand others, take care of others and be taken care of himself.  ~Haniel Long
