Let’s talk about positive thinking: We love it. We are so keen on putting practices into our lives that generate love, life, and positivity. But, we also believe that in order to authentically think positively, you must be able to honor your pain, difficulty, and even the little daily nuisances as you live your life. Sometimes positive thinking is described as “being happy all the time” or “always smiling.” Even though those things are wonderful when they come from an honest place, we also think that positive thinking is much deeper than a smile and happiness. So let’s talk about those things…
