All Good Things

All good things must come to an end, or so the saying goes. I’ve had some major changes in my life this week, and so I thought I would talk a little bit more about change and courage, and catch you all up on what’s going on with me.

I’ve left Family Tree Counseling where I’ve been for the past six years. It was actually six years to the day. While I was there, I got many things that I needed at the time…a job I was good at with flexible hours, (which is great when you’re a single mom), some really great training from some awesome mentors, and the opportunity to begin to forge my craft.

I could not be more excited about this new beginning!!!  As you know, I graduated with my MSW degree about three months ago. I will be taking my LSW licensure exam soon.  Now I am looking towards being a member of an amazing team of women who are committed to excellence in their counseling, their business, and their lives.  I know and have worked with Kathy Henry, Christy Aloisio, and Javan Lockhart for some time now, and they are all top flight therapists.  Anyone who comes through the door at Healing Hearts will be in excellent hands.

As I have made this transition, some of my clients have asked me if I have any regrets about the change. The answer to that is a resounding “No!”.  While change can sometimes be difficult, I find that I look forward to changes from time to time, even if it’s something as relatively benign as rearranging the furniture in my house. Change helps us grow, and learn, and become exposed to new ideas and activities that can further our journey on this planet. I don’t think that change is something to be feared, it is something that keeps our adventure fresh and keeps us growing.

Renaissance_man_posterThis brings me to the point I’d like to make today. I chose to leave my previous position because it was no longer what I needed and the parameters were ones that didn’t match my own professional and personal goals. I have come to learn and deeply understand that no one will advocate for me and the life that I will lead but me. It’s not anyone’s job but mine to make sure I am leading the life I dream of.  Each person must respectfully and courageously take responsibility and stand for what they want and need in jobs, relationships, and every other aspect of their life.

strengthening relationshipsI’m reminded of a quote from “The Renaissance Man” with Danny DeVito. He said “The choices we make dictate the life we lead.”  He could not be more correct. What choices will you make in order to lead the life that you want to lead? Will you have the courage to make those choices? Will you have the courage to be humble in your relationships? Will you have the courage to be bold in your business decisions? No one will fight for the life that you want to lead but you. You have to decide each day whether or not the life you want to lead is worth fighting for. YOU are worth fighting for. Your life is worth the effort you have to put in to make the changes that need to be made in order for your dreams to come true. Find the courage to step boldly into the life that you dream of. Don’t settle for average or mediocre.  If your job or relationship or feelings in your heart haven’t gotten better in the last few years, now is the time to stand up and get the love and life you want, through humility and courage.

I wish you well in your journey, and I hope that if you need help finding your courage or the path to your dreams, you will give me a call and we can work together to find it.
