Taking Care Of Yourself

 

 

Three steps to help you redefine your world when "Plan A" fails.


"Life is all about how you handle Plan B.
Plan A is always my first choice.
You know, the one where
Everything works out to be
Happily ever-after.
But, more often than not.
I find myself dealing with
The upside-down, inside-out-version -
Where nothing goes as it should.
It's at this point that the real
Test of my character comes in .. 
Do I sink, or do I swim? 
Do I wallow in self pity and play the victim
Or simply shift gears
And make the best of the situation?
The choice is all mine...
Life is all about how you handle Plan B."

Get real. Are you living your dream or are you living someone Else's dream? So, your life isn't perfect, do you know any one's that is? Stop comparing yourself to other's. There is always someone with more and always someone with less. Start to want the life you have.
Stay away from negative people. That's right, stay away from the drama queens that make everything about themselves - even your problems. A negative attitude is contagious; it will only bring you down in the long-run. On the upside, a positive attitude is contagious, keep the positive people close in your life.
Don't be afraid to ask for help. You are not alone. There are many people that aren't living the life they dreamed as a child, but that doesn't mean they have a bad life. If you feel like you keep going through the same thing over and over again, then it is time to ask for help.
Help is just a phone call away. You can reach me at (650) 892-0357 to set up a consultation.

What's Wrong with Being Single?

"It's nothing personal," he says "it's really not you it's me I just need some time to figure things out." "This is not the first time I have heard this," said my client.

One of the great things about being single is the independence that comes with it. Take this time to make your own decisions and learn not to rely on others for approval.

I know some people think there is nothing worse than being single. Where does this come from, many clients have asked me. And, I often ask them to answer their own question. When did they start feeling this way and where did it come from? We are starting to see a change in our society it has been reported that 49% of the United States is single. We see single people living a carefree life in many commercials with a nice car and nice clothes. But, after working as a Marriage and Family Therapist I find this really isn't always the case.

Many of the single people I work with complain being single is not all it's cracked up to be and wonder if they would ever find the love of their life and live happily ever after. There can be a lot said for singledom, after all, it is a right of passage. This is a time to…
