Explore. Dream. Discover.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore. Dream. Discover."     ~M. Twain Today is the ribbon cutting ceremony for Reimann Counseling Clinic.  This is a very exciting day because the dream that owner, Jenny Reimann had is being realized.  Her once private practice is expanding, and with that more clients are getting the services they need and deserve.  It is because of Jenny's willingness to explore the possibilities of her dream and her determination to see it through, that this day is a possibility.  Do you tend to follow Jenny's lead and make your dreams a reality?  Or,…

You ROCK!

“If you make friends with yourself you will never be alone.” (Maxwell Maltz) It would seem obvious that you would want to be friends with yourself, but I find it surprising how difficult it is to remember to be kind to myself. I catch myself expecting 110% of myself when all I am able to offer is 85% that day.

I Don’t Like Change!

Actually, I sort of do, but I know that I am strange that way.  Most of  us don’t.  We get used to how things are, get comfortable, and enjoy the ride.  When that shifts, whether that be a personal or workplace change, we often don’t know how to handle it well.  Since the only constant in world is change, it might be in our best interest to be prepared to respond, in a way we would be proud. -   Admit that change is happening or about to happen.  Denying it prolongs the inevitable. -  Expect that it will cause stress. We can often manage stress better when we know that we are stressed. -  Share your fears, concerns, worries.  Find a trustworthy source and talk.  Often when we talk about…
