You can spend all your time thinking about ways you've been wronged, but it won't encourage your soul to grow. Instead use that space to remember the beauty and love in your life, even if it's just for a few minutes a day. Don't let other people win. Your soul isn't here for that purpose.
Today's words are from Deborah Way, Executive Editor at O, The Oprah Magazine.
Healing Words is an ongoing series with the intention of once a day shifting focus away from suffering and onto healing. Healing is a daily practice of listening to your inner voice and turning pain into purpose.
Please feel free to share words that have helped you heal or your thoughts on these healing words.
