We create mental programs that operate silently much like the operating system in our laptop or desktop. The mental programs may be beneficial or they may be outdated needing an update. A person who has been hurt by bad breakup, for example, may have a program running that says, “I won’t love again, it’s too painful.” An updated program says, “I’ve been hurt, but I won’t let that stop me from letting love come into my life.” When we become aware of our mental programs we can decide if they need to be updated or replaced with a better mental program.

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
