My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it. CC Scott

Therapist's Thoughts on Thursday

Cricket and I just returned from a great walk. It is a beautiful day with sunshine and of course, kibble in my pocket for good work! I found myself feeling so grateful that I could go for a walk and appreciating both mine and Cricket's good health. We stopped at a corner and celebrated giving her some kibble! I wished that I had some m & m's for me!

My clients tell me at times it takes courage to savor positive experiences. As Emily Dickinson wrote: I can wade grief -- Whole pools of it -- i'm used to that -- But the least push of Joy Breaks up my feet -- And I tip -- drunken --

I often invite clients to celebrate their strengths. What? they might say. If you'd like visit: authentic happiness and click on VIA Signature Strengths Questionnaire.

Celebrate your strengths!

You are right. Good health is truly a blessing. I often look at people who are struggling and wonder if I would be that cheerful and positive if that burden were mine. Good thoughts!
