What’s your personal tag line?

We all want to feel more calm, more in control. And whether that’s economically, personally, relationally, the ways to do it are the same. The first thing one has to do is be able to answer the question: am I living a values driven life. Are my values in line with the way I live my life, the choices I make?

It may not just be you

Sometimes it’s not just what is said to you by your parents, but what was experienced by them that affects us. What your parents experienced – war, hurt, trauma – affected them not just on an emotional and psychological level, but potentially on a physical and cellular level. Research, dating back to the 1700s, and maybe before, as well as that being today today in the field of epigenetics suggests that changes in our parents’ and even grandparents’ genes that happen as a result of trauma can be passed down. This is ground breaking in terms of therapy as it means that some people may be more likely to experience anxiety or depression as a result of their family’s unresolved trauma. That said, that doesn’t mean it’s hopeless, but hopeful. The more we understand about trauma, how we carry it, where we carry it, the more able we are to treat it.

The agony of creativity

As a creative all too familiar with the suffering of creating, I often look to other stories for inspiration. For inspiration to move forward, to continue, to suffer and know it will pass. Most recently I found just that in the words of John Steinbeck. In his journal, we read about a man who, while writing one of the greatest American novels ever penned, doubted his ability (“assailed with my own ignorance and inability”), the meaning of his writing (“If only I wouldn’t take this book so seriously. It is just a book after all, and a book is very dead in a very short time. And I’ll be dead in a very short time too. So to hell with it.”), and motivation (“Where has my discipline gone?” he asks in August, “Have I lost control?”). This is a man, like all of us, who is suffering through the often depressing and arduous work of creating. Whether what you create is the next great American novel or ends up in the practice pile in the bin, the feelings are the same along the way. However, they can change. They can feel less overwhelming. And you can feel less alone. Call today to find out...
