I think one of the most important things for your relationship with yourself, with your family and in the workplace is that you've gotta have hope and you've got to be focused on the things you have control of and not the things you don't in order to be really happy!!!!
I get together on a regular basis for peer supervision with my colleagues. We all have different styles and each use different therapeutic techniques but the one thing we have all agreed upon regarding whether people heal or not is whether the person believes that there is hope for them to make the situation different. I think you can make it different if you decide to make it different, have the proper support and a little hope. Sometimes creating that ‘doable’ first step is the thing that ignites it. Jack Layton said "You can wait forever for perfect conditions or you can make the best of what you've got now." He had hope during one of the most physically challenging times of his life and I think that ability is in all of us. I guess that is why I am writing this blog. I want to support people to create resilience and hope…..one day at a time.
