When you're grieving it's easy to slip into what-if thinking and ongoing guilt. In contrast, affirming yourself with words can lead you forward on the recovery path. This straightforward workshop defines affirmation, gives examples of grief healing affirmations, cites affirmation writing steps, and offers ways to apply affirmations to real life. Affirmation writing isn't complicated, according to Hodgson, and her workshop will get you writing quickly. Writing affirmations can improve your day and change your life.
