“Change is possible and does not have to be difficult.” ~ Jenny Mannion

I’m an advocate for Positive change. Always have been. I know its never easy to change our negative ways, but we can DO it if we are committed to our inner peace and happiness.

Change always seems daunting to the human mind. We are creatures of comfortable habit and refuse to change our ways simply because we think its difficult. But Jenny’s book kicks all those difficult ways to change out the window and gives you simple, clear, wise and doable ways to create positive change within you. Jenny’s journey is inspiring and learning from her life’s work has been a blessing for me.

So, we are not happy because of the mean people in the world?! Really!?

Nah, we are not happy because we have not become kinder and more compassionate to ourselves and to all those around us. Why blame the mean people, they are probably fighting their own battles on the inside. Continue reading
