I hit a rough patch…in life…in general. I knew that I needed a fresh start, but was afraid of what that would look like. Yesterday, I woke up early and decided that I would get my butt into gear and completely redo my website. I yearned to have something reflective of my personality, my quirkiness, and my imperfections. I was afraid of showing the world this before, because hell, I’m a therapist, so I am supposed to have all my crap together, right?
Obviously, I don’t and I thought that was what made me a completely horrible therapist. But the truth is, being imperfect doesn’t make me a horrible therapist at all. It actually helps me see my clients clearer – through fresh lenses. Just like the moment I put on my progressive lenses for the first time at the eye glasses store (yes, I look young but I wear progressive lenses because I can’t see crap), I can see my clients much, much clearer. I can sit in their worry from a place of “I hear you” and “I get it”, because I truly do.
So my friends, here’s to fresh starts. I have a lot of work to do to build this site back up, but I am not afraid. I am OK with everyone seeing a site in progress, a woman in progress, a wife in progress, a mom in progress. I am OK with all of that.
I’m in for helping you navigate life because I am navigating just the same.
