Have you ever woken up and realized that the life you are living is not the life you dreamed of, or the life you wanted? You know that feeling when you can see how this ends and you don’t like it? I know that feeling.


You know the feeling where your pain is so deep that you feel utterly alone in the world? Sure you have friends, but the pain is so deep you don’t think they would understand. And most of your friends have not been through what you are going through. You just feel so alone. I know this feeling too. I hate this feeling! It is the very reason I got into the helping profession. I never wanted anyone to feel alone the way I felt alone. I wanted to go to those deep dark places with people so they did not have to be there by themselves.


I have been there. And I promise you, there is a way out. A different way to live life. To live the life you always dreamed of. Even if it looks different than you originally thought. But I have found that often the two look different because we tend to not dream big enough in the first place! What if this was true for you as well?


Often I have clients tell me they wish they had pursued counseling sooner. That they now realize they can live life by their own design and live life more fully. But in my book, there is no better time to start fully living than TODAY. Because today is all we have.  So why not embrace it?
