I just had a relaxing massage today. When I get knots in my shoulders and neck, I get creaky. Feel so much better in my body, mind and spirit when the kinks are worked out. My wonderful massage therapist gave me a few pieces of Dove chocolate as I was leaving. I ate one but didn’t want them all. I stopped to gas up the car and as I paid the attendant I handed him the chocolate. I got the best reaction from him! A big sunny smile and a thank you! It was so much fun! Have a beautiful day!
Developing habits of thoughts and action that nurture your mental health takes a life time of learning and practice. It’s a great and fun endeavor!! You can always grow!!
Research shows that some people are lucky enough to be born with an innate positivity. And some people are lucky enough to be born into family situations where healthy emotional and mental attitudes are taught by both modeling positive behavior and having honest communication about identifying and expressing feelings. So positive habits can be innate and also naturally absorbed in childhood.
You all know that I’m interested in all things healing. I’ve spent a lifetime studying healing modalities, as I’ve bet a lot of you have! We all have a lot of research and tools available to us for healing on different levels.
