Our Mission: To use free, online meetings to support wellness (like mental health and stress control), and elevate positive emotions (like happiness and joy). How? With 4 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 (with addiction, anxiety, low self-esteem, loneliness, etc.)
>For those hurting from someone else's harmful problem.
>For those willing to offer understanding, compassion and support to those who are hurting.
>For those (with no real problem) who are interested in personal growth, and effective self-leadership (listen & learn).
All Adults Welcome. Teenagers extra welcome!
I Love Who I Am (flaws and all). If I focus on my faults, I fail to feel good about myself, as if I'm not worthy of real happiness. But by accepting responsibility for the relationship I have with myself, I can know that I am worthy, and feel "good enough" to enjoy healthy self-love. So yes, I'm willing to face the truth about myself - 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. ("What knowledge can you find that is greater than kindness?") Research shows high correlation between kindness and happiness. (The best fuel for kindness is love.)
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 really counts.
(I wonder: If I were to use my Power of Choice 30% 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 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.

Those rocks are threats, like the "rocks" in life that threaten happiness. The four forms of love are a like a lighthouse to guide you away from the rocks.
Is This For You?
Here's One Way To Know:
Check your feelings. Your feelings tell you how your life is going. Yes, your feelings are your feedback, your guide, your compass, your GPS. Your feelings (positive or negative) flow from your thoughts, and you can exercise control over how you think and, therefore, how you feel. Aim for positive thoughts and feelings like peace, love, joy, inspiration, hope, and gratitude. (Not negative ones like unjustified stress, depression, anxiety, anger, resentment, envy or fear.) Positive feelings can make bad, better. And better, good. And good, great. That can change who you are.
