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.
