‘The Healing Power of Living in The Present’ By Shawna Allard

My story is about the healing effect that leaving in the present has if you have been to any kind of trauma or there is anything that is making you feel depressed, sad, angry, or confused.
By fully living in the present you realize that there is nothing to worry about. That most of the time the present moment is perfect as it is and is full of joy and love. It is just our minds that wander to the past or the future and that makes us feel negative emotions.
From this story, you will learn the benefits of living in the present, what is keeping you from enjoying life to the fullest and how to rewrite old habitual thought patterns that are keeping you from healing and reaching your full potential, and create the life you want.
