Day 1884: Inspired

Because I am participating in an inspired group therapy conference with other inspired group therapists, I am inspired to make this blog post short today.

So, I will ask two inspired questions.

  1. What has inspired you this past week?
  2. Who has inspired you the most in your life?

I will post one inspired photo.

And I will share one inspired video.

I am inspired by so many places and people, including YOU.

Day 1171: Finally

Firstly, I’m calling this post “Finally” because of two photos I’m finally sharing now:

Secondly, I wrote “THIS IS GOING TO BE OVER IN HALF AN HOUR” on my office whiteboard to help somebody who has panic attacks rarely lasting  longer than 30 minutes. I hope remembering that finally helps that person have fewer and shorter bouts of panic.

Finally, here are all the other photos I took yesterday:

Personally, when I say or write “Finally,” I often discover I have more I want to express. In therapy, we call that the “doorknob statement” —  an often important statement somebody shares when finally leaving the office, holding the doorknob on the way out.

Finally, here’s my doorknob statement for today:

Finally, I’m letting go of old fears about my health, about performing in front of others, and about taking up space.

Finally, I’m ready to thank all those who helped me create today’s “Finally” post and you — of course! — for reading it, finally.
