Cultivating gratitude in challenging times
Conjuring gratitude for the people and things we cherish can often be easy. There are myriad reasons to feel and give thanks to our family, friends, and loved ones. Perhaps more complex, however, is extending gratitude to those who have hurt or wronged us. Sometimes it takes time, perspective and new awareness to feel the gratitude for life’s challenges.
Please join Lama Tsomo on May 18 for a free webinar offering tools and insight to support you in experiencing gratitude for everything- even the tough stuff!

Interacting with certain people can be difficult, but sometimes we just have to get through it. How do we do that successfully? The answer may lie in working with our own perceptions and emotions rather than avoiding or ignoring the people we don’t get along with. https://alwayssmiling.co/best-enemy-accepting-challenge-difficult-people/

There will always be people in our lives we'd rather not spend time with. When interacting with someone we don’t like, emotions like anger, irritation and sadness arise. Once these emotions are ignited, they can build momentum and deeply affect our health and wellbeing. Here are a few resources to help you manage those emotions during unpleasant interactions: https://alwayssmiling.co/best-enemy-accepting-challenge-difficult-people/
