Depression can stop our progress when we are healing from loss. It is wise to learn what brings on depression so we can avoid it and prevent it from affecting our progress.

Your Sweet Spot

Finding your "sweet spot", or the unique talents and gifts you have can help you find satisfaction and fulfillment, even while grieving the loss of a loved one.
