I hear it everyday. “I am not good enough.” “I am not smart.” “I will never succeed.” “No one likes me.” “I am not happy with things I have done in the past.” “I am a failure.” So as DrContinue reading “Self Compassion – A Missing Piece of Wellness”

Monday Motivation – Grief
I attended the mass of a friend this past Friday. It was an unanticipated death and she was only 69. She always had a smile on her face and she truly lived life to the fullest.

Addiction – To Use or Not to Use
Addiction is a monster. We cannot discount the genetic component, however, environment plays a major role.

Alone for the Holidays.
My eldest son and his girlfriend came by last night and helped put the lights on the tree. I always like to have a tree up for Thanksgiving. It helps me get into the spirit of the holidays. Each year that passes I see my kids finding their way in life, growing into the adultsContinue reading “Alone for the Holidays.”
Social Media does NOT Equal Social Connections
We are living in a time period where social media consumes our daily lives. One can have 1400+ ‘friends’ on their social media and not one of them they consider enough support to call upon in an hour of need.
