    I heard a good quote on a podcast I was listening to recently: “Happiness isn’t what you find, it’s what’s left when you get rid of all the things that make you unhappy.” I also love this quote: “Don’t chase the light; the light will drop in automatically when you heal your trauma.” Life is a process of decluttering.

If you can’t see the video below you can watch it here on YouTube.     It reminded me of watching Tony Robbins speak with someone in his audience who had depression.  To show them how in control they are of…
