Brené Brown

Damn. My dear friend Elizabeth Gilbert sees me. Her journal pages may need to come with warning labels.

I had the same gut-punch-bear-hug feeling when my therapist told me that I needed to work on my "Let go and let Brené" approach to life.

"Ouch and thank you" at the exact same time. ❤️

The 'Emotion Chart' My Therapist Gave Me That I Didn't Know I Needed "I hope it's a tool that can help you too."

What is talked about in premarital counseling | Lifeologie Counseling Grand Rapids

Have you and your partner been thinking about Pre-Marital Counseling? Rosann Raftery, MA, LLPC, LLMFT gives the inside scoop on what to expect! Thinking about getting married? Are you sure you're both on the same page? Strengthen the foundation through pre-marital counseling. Call for more info.

Counseling Center of West Michigan

Have you heard of the Pyramid of Transformation? It’s a useful tool that helps us better understand the steps we must take to create lasting, positive change!

It begins with awareness: recognizing that something isn’t working and needs to change. Only after awareness can you take responsibility for creating the life you want. While you cannot change the past, you have the power to take control of your future. It’s important to forgive yourself for past mistakes. Challenge yourself to release any shame or blame you might be carrying. This will make room for compassion and peace. Releasing what holds you back allows you to reach the top tier of the Pyramid of Transformation: joy! Joy provides you with clarity and allows you to be fully present in the moment.

CCWM Journal Prompt:
For each of the five steps in the Pyramid of Transformation, write out one goal that will help you on your journey towards lasting change and transformation!


Be kind to that mind!

This is such a helpful explanation about why we're feeling so drained lately!!!
