I'm Here

Some people have wondered where I've been, as it seems that I have disappeared from the blogging world. So I wanted to let you all know that I am alive and well, but still not very interested in the blog. I have very little to say that would be of interest to anyone.

Update: I have made great progress toward getting my associates license for counseling. My application will be reviewed by the Georgia Composite Board next Friday, so if all goes well I should have my Associate Professional Counselor license within a couple of weeks. I did a lot of work in a very short amount of time to get to this place. Now I have to find clients, and that task feels a bit overwhelming at present. My energy is quite low, and I don't think that I am putting out the kind of energy that I need to put out to draw clients to me. So I'm frustrated. I know that I need to be patient, I just really like to see results and results don't always happen over night.

Right now I am sitting at the Open Mind Center, typing this blog entry when I should be giving my Journaling Class; however, it's hard to give a class without students. I have this great class to offer; I've seen its transformative powers. However, the trick is to get other people enthusiastic about something as basic as writing. I think that people are looking for "magic" and quick fixes, and they underestimate the power of pen and paper because it is so fundamental and basic. However, processing your "stuff" through the means of pen and paper works amazingly quickly and gives fast results, and it's empowering because the healing is coming from within the writer. Yes, it helps to have me there guiding the students, but ultimately the writer has the answers within themselves, and they have the key that will reveal those answers.

I am so happy to reconnect with you all. Thank you for remembering me, and for supporting me along my journey.  My apologies to all of the blogs that I have been neglecting lately. Although I'm not responding to your posts, my thoughts are with you and I send you wishes for continued success and happiness.

Much love


  1. I'm glad things are going well for you with your career, although it is much work setting it all up. Positive work is good for the soul, I think, and I know in time you will have your clients. You know how to market yourself well. I would gladly be taking your journaling class if I was close to your area. You care about people, and that quality makes you a good mentor. Perhaps you've reached your time to move on beyond blogging. If so, I'll miss you much. Take good care of yourself.

  2. Argh, I wish I had been at the class. Feel free to tell me when you (next?) do that again.
    Sending love and positive vibes your way...I can't wait to see where you're going :)

  3. Good luck with your new venture..I mentioned before I am studying BA PSychology part time with the intention of becoming an adolescent counsellor in a few years...I know the feelings of writing stuff for a words sometimes 'disappear into thin air' for that course of yours electronically available? I am the other side of the world but would be interested. And yes, people nowadays just want instant everything...success without the hard work et al...Take care going forwards

  4. glad to see you posting again. I think people want to do all the things you do in your class, it's just that no one knows about it. Maybe you can find a way to advertise your classes. Let me know when the next one is I'd love to go to it.

  5. I am so glad that you put up a post. I would love to attend your class. I didn't know it was happening. Please keep me posted on future class dates.
