“We are not enemies, but friends.
We must not be enemies.
Though passion may have strained,
it must not break our bonds of affection.
The mystic chords of memory will swell
when again touched,
as surely they will be,
by the

better angels of our nature.

Y/OUR CHOICE Rx:

Do Thoughts and Emotions Affect Y/OUR Health?

https://www.takingcharge.csh.umn.edu/how-do-thoughts-and-emotions-affect-health

Negative emotions

are not good for your health.

Positive emotions:

Broaden our perspective of the world – inspiring more creativity, wonder, and options
Build over time, creating lasting emotional resilience and flourishing.

The soul’s natural heal/THY elixir:

luminous kindness.

Many people choose negativity
because it is familiar to them and feels safe.
It is important to give people the space to find their own way.
Yet,
an individual can always set an example,
representing the remarkable power of being positive.

X

Awareness is the first step to change.

X

The exponential power
of
two people
working as allies
to
promote the positive
is

beautiful

SHIFTS THE ATMOSPHERE.

X

Radiant energy!

X

Make a conscious decision to lift y/our energy
countering the weight/pull/downward spiral of negativity.

X

We always have the option/choice to NOT

create/participate

in negativity.
