When relationships are broken, we cannot just give up on them, we must use the amazing healing powers of gratitude. Join me as I talk with Dr. Kerry Howells, a thought-leader, author, and award-winning educator. Dr. Kerry and I discuss gratitude and resentment. We dive deep into how gratitude has healed broken relationships in our lives. I was intrigued by Dr. Kerry because we both hold a very important place for gratitude and its healing powers. I invite you to listen in and learn about gratitude in practice.

Do you have a message about the importance of healing that you would like to share with our listeners?
Yes, my message is that when our relationships are broken, we often can’t have deep personal healing. Let’s not put these relationships in the “too hard” basket but work on them with the amazing healing powers of gratitude, one relationship at a time
What is your tip to living a happy and fulfilling life?
Making mistakes is very important, as is the gratitude we feel for the learning we have gained.
