"I suffered severe physical, emotional and mental injuries in a workplace accident about 1/2 years ago. It has been a long difficult journey to recovery, but now I am back at work and enjoying a few of the activities I used to enjoy. Mindfulness and Positive Psychology have been a big part of my recovery efforts and I am not done yet. Learning to live within my limitations, but still growing in experience and knowledge has helped me regain my psychological autonomy. I have also strengthened my resilience to be able to have the confidence to endure the challenges of everyday life, enjoy and appreciate my relationships with others and what is good about the world around us.  There is some truth to “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger." - CPPA Member
