Our Mission: To offer free, open, online meetings to enhance mental-emotional health and elevate happiness. How? By affirming four empowering forms of love:
1 - I love who I am (flaws and all).
2 - I love win-win relationships.
3 - I love my power to choose.
4 - I love my mind, my body.
Who's This For?
>For those hurting from a problem (stress, alcohol, anxiety, drugs, self-esteem, loneliness, etc.).
>For those hurting from someone else's harmful problem (teenagers or adults).
>For those willing to offer compassion, hope and support to those who are hurting.
>For others desiring personal growth, and improved self-leadership ability (listen & learn).
All Adults Welcome. Teenagers extra welcome!
I Love Who I Am (flaws and all). If I focus on all my faults, I fail to feel good about myself, not worthy of real happiness. But by accepting full responsibility for the relationship I have with myself, I can realize that I am worthy, "good enough" to enjoy healthy self-love. So yes, I'm willing to face the truth about myself - my true self, my real self - no matter how wonderful that may be.
I Love Win-Win Relationships. Win-Win is about mutual benefit. Other kinds of interpersonal relationships are toxic (win-lose, lose-win, lose-lose). Win-Win requires me to be kind - both to myself and to the others in my relationships. Kindness and happiness are highly correlated, and love is the purest fuel for kindness. ("What knowledge can you find that is greater than kindness?")
I Love My Power To Choose.
Negative people and events in my life can hurt me,
Depending on how I respond to them,
But, I can choose my response,
I can control my reactions
By using my greatest power,
My power of choice.
So, it's not what happens to me that matters most,
It's what I do about it that counts.
(I wonder: If I were to use my Power of Choice 25% better than now, how would that affect my life?)
I Love My Mind, My Body.
Because of the mind-body connection, my mental health - good or bad - affects me physically. And my physical fitness (or lack of it) affects me mentally. Good nutrition, adequate exercise, and a positive attitude (e.g., an attitude of gratitude) are priorities for my mental and physical wellness. Yes, my mind, my body: I can energize each with the other. If I choose to.
Please Know This: Whatever your age, the people in your life really need you - your love, your support, your compassion, and sometimes your forgiveness. To offer all that to them - and to yourself also - requires strength of character. Great character flows naturally from the four forms of love. They empower you to be your best you, and very successful in life. Also very caring - about yourself and others. In one word: Happy.
