This ancient Arab phrase is not only one of my all-time favorite mental touchstones, but it also has applicability for everything from handling your response to the election results to dealing with your love life to navigating your career planning.
Come on over to the blog to find out why and how you can harness this phrase to positively impact your own life.
With Thanksgiving looming in just a few short days, I wanted to share some additional thoughts with you about how to navigate the holiday this year post-election 2016. And head’s up: this blog post– written in a Q & A format of the most frequently asked questions I’ve heard folks asking in the last week — is specifically crafted for those of us who voted for Hillary and who may be spending Thanksgiving with those who voted for Trump.
As a therapist, I cannot and will not be politically neutral about President-Elect Trump. I know many of you may also be reeling from the results of this week’s election and I wanted you to know you’re not alone. I join with you in the shock, anger, and fear.
Because of this, I wanted to round up a collection of my articles — some published on this blog and some released to other media outlets this week — to help you process what’s happened.
