 Tuesday's Healing Word Focus

Definition of Focus:  A center of interest or activity; close or narrow attention; concentration.  This is what Jack Canfield, Co-Author of Chicken Soup For The Soul Series, says about positive focus: “Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals, rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them”.

Tuesday's Healing Word Focus

Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Buddist Monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist writes: “It’s very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems”
