    JOY IS NOW: WHY GERANIUMS BLOOM

    JOY IS NOW: WHY GERANIUMS BLOOM

    Hi Friends, I'm Lisa Anderson Shaffer - coach, consultant, psychotherapist, and resident psych enthusiast. And I LOVE psychology! It's the study of human behavior after all and isn't that pretty much everything? Psychology is the one thing that we all have in common, yet we don't talk about it nearly as much as we should. That's where JOY IS NOW comes in.

    Join me weekly for an in depth look at all things psychology. Together we will talk psych theory, emotion, and human behavior, all through the sharing of stories, experiences and lessons learned.

    In this new THEORY SEGMENT I discuss choice. Not the big life choices, but the small ones we make each moment that paint themselves into the core of our character. Spoiler alert, geraniums bloom for many reasons if you choose to let them.

    Thanks for being here.

    This has been JOY IS NOW with me, Lisa Anderson Shaffer, LMFT. You can find me for hire at LISAANDERSONSHAFFER.COM along with patronage support for this podcast and my daily practice journal, THESE THREE THINGS. You can also follow along with my musings at @lisaandersonshaffer on Instagram.

Golden nuggets

Every conversation has a golden nugget or two we can bring back to our own lives—whether it’s looking at something in a new way or the spark we need to ignite a change. Good stuff!
