Hope and healing for the hurt
only you can feel.
I believe we experience events that may define our lives.

I believe our future depends on how we respond to the memory of those events.

I believe we can choose how we respond.

New Perspective

by Susan Rigney on 02/17/15

Learning something new feels uncomfortable even when we know it will benefit us in the long run. I have found that attitude has everything to do with success. 

A positive attitude makes learning something new more fun and exciting. Humor and the ability to laugh at our mistakes proves to be healthy both mentally and physically.
