The thing about meditation is...
Pretty much nobody just sits down, starts meditating, and is immediately changed. Like everything else you aspire to do, you gotta practice to develop your skills. You gotta do the work to reap the rewards. The work is the practice. The joy is in the practice too.
Keeping a Mental Picture
When things get rough on this roller coaster ride we call life, the memories of what brings us happiness or joy can sustain us. This is simply a reminder to be present with matters most. Different for everyone in one way or another, but alike all the same. We are one human race, with similar desires, problems, needs, and sources of joy. All are to be held precious!
Automatic thinking- With Dr. Cecilia Lopez
Listen to my dear friend Dr Cecilia Lopez on those automatic thoughts that influence our behaviors in so many ways. Dr. Lopez has been practicing therapy for eight years in California’s South San Francisco Bay Area. She has a doctorate and master’s degree in counseling psychology and is a licensed marriage and family therapist. She has worked at a non-profit as a clinician for seven years and now runs her own private practice. Cecilia takes pride in helping others work through mental, emotional, behavioral and stress-related challenges by supporting the development of skills and insight that promotes a life of well-being and flow. She playfully refers to herself as a "Fear Coach". Her passion for helping others and her energetic (and sometimes playful) personality provides an ideal blend for promoting the improvement and awareness of mental health.

Living IN Gratitude
If we can take just a second or two to appreciate before we move on? We open the door to making appreciation and gratitude an integral part of our lives. We can LIVE in gratitude and enjoy the benefits all the time.
Can you just BE for a minute?
When we allow ourselves the freedom to simply Be, without having to DO, it can be incredibly freeing. Give it a try?
