I approach therapy with a simple question: 

"What do you want out of life, and what is holding you back from that?" 

This question, and your answers, is where we begin the journey. I look forward to hearing from you.

Juggling glass ornaments

We often feel like we're in a juggling act with all the demands and responsibilities we're trying to meet. And sometimes you have too many balls to keep them all going. This time of year, I like to think of them as ornaments. You have to drop some of those balls - either to let them go... or to pick them back up later. The way you decide which balls to drop, is to assess which balls are rubber and can bounce and recover, and which balls are glass, and need you to prioritize them so they don't fall and crack.

Thank you, Jessica N. Turner, for this juggling act analogy and your book Stretched Too Thin: How Working Moms Can Lose the Guilt, Work Smarter, and Thrive.

As I've seen ornaments on my own tree and around town, I'm reminded of this analogy and it helps me keep living it. I hope it's helpful to you as well in this busy holiday season.
