Counseling the Counselor

Counselor. Mental health things. Destroyer of stigma and promoter of equality. I always root for the underdog. Laughter is my medicine.

What lies behind us & what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

When your heart is broken you plant seeds in the cracks and you pray for rain.

— Andrea Gibson (via psych-facts)

But is it such a bad thing to live like this for just a little while? Just for a few months of one’s life, is it so awful to travel through time with no greater ambition than to find the next lovely meal? Or to learn how to speak a language for no higher purpose than that it pleases your ear to hear it? Or to nap in a garden, in a patch of sunlight, in the middle of the day, right next to your Favorited fountain? And then to do it again the next day?

—Elizabeth Gilbert
