I created Trinity Counseling from the idea that out past builds the foundation of who we are. Our present is how we put together the lessons from that past in order to be who we want to be. Past, Present and Future.
I believe that in order to understand who we are, we must acknowledge what helped shape us. Sometimes that can be a emotional, scary and down right upsetting thing to do. Our past help make us who we are and working through some of the past can help help us have a great future.
On this page I will be posting some of my thoughts and ideas as well as ideas from others. This is a safe place to ask questions, post ideas, thoughts, poems or anything else that has helped shaped the awesomeness that is you.
Spring is finally peeking it’s head out from under the covers. I don't think I could have survived another cold, wet, miserable Saturday soccer game. Don’t get me wrong, I love, absolutely love, going to my kids soccer games. I even like going to soccer practice. I get to sit in the great outdoors, feeling the sun and the wind. I get to close my eyes and breathe, sometimes it’s my first deep breath of the day. It’s my time. If I don't want to interact with other parents, I don’t. I can read a book, listen to a podcast, look at Facebook, or just sit with my eyes closed.
It is part of my “taking care of me” routine. We all have busy lives and taking the time to slow down and check in with ourselves is very important. If we don't refill our stock piles of energy, empathy, sympathy, love, compassion, stick-to-it-ness and other must haves, we won’t have it to give to anyone else.
I encourage you to find time in your routine to take care of yourself. Sometimes we find the answer in the unlikeliest places… like soccer practice.
