A Call To Compassion And One Humanity

Last night I watched the new Julie Roberts movie, Leave the World Behind. This is a movie along the lines of apocalyptic movies and yet not. While watching it I kept thinking “this is going someplace but where?” After it ended, I was left with this incomplete, yet dreaded feeling that this is a political? social? religious? commentary on our…

Christmas Expectations

Most newsletters sent out today or tomorrow are usually wonderfully inspiring and ethereal. That is such a gift.   However, I would like to provide another approach. As a psychotherapist in private practice for 25+ years, this time of year – November 15th to January 15th, extra appointments were always the norm…. Why? Expectations. It is true that this time of…

Your Year End Cycle

This time of year, with all the catching up or completion of unfinished projects that needs to take place, life can show you the ways in which you have avoided thinking, feeling, or dealing. It can also show you, if you care to see, the ways in which you got lost along the way. Reflecting on the past year now,…

I also thought that on occasion, I could grab lunch with a friend as well. Mostly, those days were when I could put on leggings and a sweatshirt and write content, plan videos, create…

Morning cup of coffee with gratitude

Waking And Sleeping With Gratitude

This morning I woke up to hearing rain pouring against the roof and wind blowing outside the window. I don‘t know about you but I LOVE that sound. I always, almost spontaneously, offer a quick prayer of thanksgiving for my warm bed, my warm, dry, home, and the gift of so many blessings.  It reminds me of a conversation a…

Periods Of Reflection

Frequently during this past week, I heard myself saying:” Don’t go looking for logic, there isn’t any.”  Whether I was very critically going over in my head that I had talked too much at a dinner, or at another moment saying: “Why don’t you ever speak up?” Which message was correct?

More Than One Thing At A Time – One Focus

Recently I wrote about focusing on one thing at a time, one task, one project, etc. and bringing simplicity into your life. That way of being is a great way to be at peace, resulting in joy and satisfaction with life. As I have been reframing my work, seeing clients and patients on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursday, and using Mondays…
