The hardest thing to open is a closed mind.Author Unknown

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.Dr Wayne Dyer

When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we took so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened up for us. Helen Keller

We don’t see the things the way they are. We see things the way WE are.  Talmund.

Appreciative Living Circles-Appreciative Living suggests we can create real joy in our lives by focusing on, asking questions about, and creating mental pictures of what’s right, what’s working, and what we want most. It is based on the principles of Appreciative Inquiry, with constructs from Positive Psychology, living-systems theory, and other strength-based approaches. There are three basic steps in Appreciative Living: 1. Appreciating What Is. 2. Imagining the Ideal. 3. Acting in Alignment. Join Appreciative Living Click Here.
