Savoring With Gratitude: A Happiness Tool

Wake up to the moment!

I wondered how it was possible to walk for an hour through the woods and see nothing of note. I who cannot see find hundreds of things: the delicate symmetry of a leaf, the smooth skin of a silver birch, the rough, shaggy bark of a pine. I who am blind can give one hint to those who see: use your eyes as if tomorrow you will have been stricken blind. Hear the music of voices, the songs of a bird, the mighty strains of an orchestra as if you would be stricken deaf tomorrow. Touch each object as if tomorrow your tactile sense would fail. Smell the perfume of flowers, taste with relish each morsel, as if tomorrow you could never taste or smell again. Make the most of every sense. Glory in all the facets and pleasures and beauty which the world reveals to you.

—Helen Keller

Coping With Cancer the Most Positive Way I Can

My oncologist told me that he thought I was coping with my situation really well during my chemotherapy appointment on Monday. My faith, I thought. Diving deeper into my faith daily is what I have been doing. It has helped me cope. It has removed fear and helped me see that God is refining me and doing so many wonderful things in my life.

In September I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. I found the lump myself after having a clear 3D mammogram four months earlier. The call came from my doctor while I had a counseling client waiting for me in the waiting room. I have to admit I was probably a little distracted during that therapy session and did not get a chance to process the fact that I had cancer until I got home. To read more about my journey go to the link below: The way I am coping and the lessons from adversity. God is good! Life is a blessing! God doesn't waste a hurt. #copingwithcancer #Godisgood #lifeisablessing #fightfearwithfaith

Below Your Child's Anger
Chronic anger is only the tip of the iceberg. To really help a child, we must be willing to go deep.

Anger is a secondary emotion disguising something more difficult to express.

Often unexpressed and unresolved grief has a way of reappearing in the form of chronic anger and fits of rage.

Many times parents bring children and adolescents into my office hoping that I can help fix their child’s anger problem. As their story unfolds, so does the child’s history of great loss. Sometimes the child has endured an obvious loss, such as losing a loved one. But often the loss is less clear, but equally damaging. See below to read more...
