Being Responsible

Learning to be responsible can be difficult at times, but it’s important in your quest for happiness.  Being responsible around money, relationships, and healthy habits is as important as self-care when it comes to a better future.  In reading and article today, I had to think about making sacrifices today to make tomorrow better.  I […]

Relationships and Acceptance

All relationships have issues.  No relationship is perfect, and they all take work to maintain.  As much as I would love to believe the Disney Princess fairytales that the royal couples lived happily ever after, I have been a therapist too long to believe the fairytales.  As I think about marriage, and the future, I […]

How to Read People

People are so much more than that what you see in a first glance.  Unfortunately, you can see race, height, the color of someone’s eyes, and how they are dressed.  You can’t see the experience they have.  You can’t see what makes them sad or happy.  You have no idea if they struggle with loss, […]

I was lucky enough to make my way to Disney over the weekend and got to see lots of the new things happening.  From The Studios, to just driving around, there is lots of construction, as The World gets ready for its 50th anniversary in 2021.  There was so much going on, it was hard […]

Managing Disappointment

There are many twists and turns in life.  Things that we hope for, and other things that we question.  Sometimes we wish for things and they happen.  Other times we wish for things, but they don’t happen.  Managing disappointment is something we all need to do.  Sometimes we need to be careful what we wish […]

The Disney Cruise Line

Have you ever been on a cruise?  These days, you can take cruises lasting 3 days, to a year, if you purchase a cabin on a world cruise line.  Cruises are relaxing, but very busy.  There is always something to do, and somewhere to be, but the nice thing about it is you don’t have […]

Celebrating you!

These days, things are over celebrated.  Every child that plays sports now gets a trophy.  We have graduations from kindergarten, and other grades even before high school.  We seem to be making up things to celebrate, and some people feel they need to be celebrated above others.  We are all important.  We all have strengths […]

Going On Vacation

It’s summer and people seem to be thinking about vacations.  The kids are out of school and the television is filled with destinations and options to consider if you plan to get away from home.  From a weekend vacation to a week at a place like Disney, there are many options if you like to […]
