A Good Year! 2014




Happy New Year Everyone and I hope it will be a very positive and hopeful year.  I am now traversing the second anniversary of dear Peter's death (January 4).  Amidst the floods and winds it is difficult to think that the world will be warm and cheerful!  I have been helped enormously by the recent book by Martin Seligman, 'Flourish' (2011).

Seligman has moved on from his previous book 'Authentic Happiness' and developed the psychology of well-being.  Well-Being includes the following elements of: 
         Positive emotion,
         Engagement,
         Relationships, 
         Meaning, 
         Achievement,
These five elements are each elaborated with important qualities such as hope and courage.  
Hope and courage can see us through many difficulties!
