To experience something new, we need to become familiar with the thoughts and feelings in our minds and guide them to be consistent with the life we want to live. When we shift our thoughts and self-talk, our approach to life changes. Everything and everyone around us will be touched by that shift, and we will have the opportunity for a new experience as a result.
Use these weekly Affirmations and Tips to try out a new thought or approach. Let me know how it works for you. I’d love to hear from you!
I am energized with happiness.
Today I choose to energize life with happiness. I am happy for those around me and myself. I take a positive perspective knowing that my thoughts are my choice and will either diminish or expand my energy and sense of wellbeing.
My thoughts lead to my behaviors, and my behaviors have energy that may either contaminate or elevate my surroundings. I choose to orient myself to what is good and hopeful. From an optimistic viewpoint, my demeanor is appreciative and positively energized. I feel uplifted as I engage with my life and relationships in optimistic ways.
Tip: Recognize that in each moment, your responses have energy and power. You influence your environment through your body language, facial expressions, tone, choice of words, and overall energy.
Take care of yourself through this holiday season. Prioritize getting enough rest so that you will have the energy to spread and experience happiness.

Did You Experience a Challenging Change or a Loss in 2019?
Learn to Utilize Difficulties for Self-Development
In any given year, many of us will face challenges — the loss of a job, divorce, death, illness or diagnosis, interpersonal conflict, a rebellious or troubled child, or children leaving for college. It's not uncommon to isolate during times of trauma and difficulty. Research tells us that being able to process and have our story witnessed is critically important for healing and growth.
Join us for a Creative Arts Therapy Workshop in the new year to honor your growth gifts of 2019.
- Make art with supportive others.
- Enjoy a safe place to reflect on your challenges in 2019 through both two-dimensional and three-dimensional art-making. Although sharing is not required, you will have the chance to process your experience.
- Learn how to process changes and difficulties through the lens of appreciation for the inner strength, support system, spiritual guidance, and inspiration that allowed you to get through.
- Solidify your learning and growth from your experience and feel sturdier as you enter 2020.
Honor the gifts of your growth. We look forward to seeing you in the new year!
