Sometimes life IS complicated. And sometimes we make it complicated. Practicing simplicity is a way to get real clear, real fast about what matters. Eliminate the clutter- mental, emotional, physical, spiritual. Let the non essentials fade away and just practice the most important. So when life IS complicated, you are grounded and clear about your values and priorities. #love #life #values #clarity #narrative #narrativetherapy #simplicity #dog #friends #mansbestfriend #sisters #livemorelifeeveryday #mental #emotional #spiritual #physical #mom #dads #parenting #therapy #mindbodyspirit

When was the last time you welcomed and embraced yourself (literally or figuratively!) as you would a cherished friend? .

Many of us are desperately craving our own affection, longing for love and acceptance from ourselves.

Wanna try something? .

Take a moment...right now...
🌟Close your eyes.
🌟Put a hand on your heart.
🌟Offer yourself a kind, loving message.*
*It's most effective if you find your own words--the ones that you're longing to hear--but here are a few options you can try, just to get you started.
-"I care about you."
-"I'm right here."
-"You matter to me."

It was quite a few years into my career as a therapist when I finally started to realize how powerful words and language are in healing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🗣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Take this sentence, for example:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📝⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“You will be surprised to know that you are more capable than you currently realize.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⭐️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Seems simple enough, right? But what if I make this statement to someone who won’t take a risk because of fear of failure? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👇🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let me break it down for you...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣ The future tense indicates that change IS coming. Prepares the mind for change.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2️⃣ A pessimist can’t argue with it. They WILL be surprised if they don’t believe me 😎⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3️⃣ It suggests their sense of incompetence isn’t real—it’s a changeable perception. But it doesn’t require an argument or direct assault on mental defenses.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4️⃣ It creates a future in which my predictions are more believable when this prediction ends up to be true. As a helper, I get exponentially growing credibility—which makes the next change easier 🔥⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yeah, it’s like that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🙌🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t underestimate the magical power of a few carefully constructed sentences on the human mind.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🧠 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Words can change the world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our next Connection Session is our biannual Witnessing Transitions. Each end of Summer & Winter we gather as a community to reflect on the last 6 months, learnings to take away, we look at what we need to let go of and we realign to the story we most want to be writing going forward.
At the end of winter we are ready to come together, release, reconnect and refocus on our north star. Come join us on the 25th August 🌟 reception@wingsandquill.com www.wingsandquill.com/events #connection #community #witnessing #supportgroups #narrativetherapy #winter image @nature.geography 🌲

“At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity.” -Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen 🌿 Although not all of us are accomplished painters, poets, or composers, creative expression does wonders for the mind in terms of emotional expression, grounding, visual, kinesthetic, and auditory processing, and meaning-making: a few of the steps to healing. What do you do to let out your creative side? #adultcoloringbooks #johannabasford #sandiegotherapist #psyd #lmft #safespace #leanin #selfacceptance #selfempowerment #selfchallenge #healthyconnection #wiredforlovenotfear #vulnerabilityequalsstrength #narrativetherapy #experientialtherapy #emotionallyfocusedtherapy #emotionallyfocusedcouplestherapy #eft #arttherapy #selfcare #sandiegoselfcare #naturetherapy

🌿🧘🏻‍♀️SD Self Care Stop: Mission Trails Regional Park has endless walking, running, hiking, bouldering, and biking paths to explore. The San Diego River trickles along the side of the main paved path that eventually leads to a small historic dam. If you look hard enough, you’ll even find a small lake and boulders that look like they’re in the middle of a balancing act. If you’ve you need to escape for a while, this place is a hidden-away quiet reprieve from the noise of people, responsibilities, and sometimes even your own head.

但就係咁老土
我嘅小號 一直希望搵到自己的美 不斷提醒自己要向善
雖然未做到 應該話係#不可能嘅任務
因為人係一定有#陰暗面
所以我做左一個#樹洞
因為 講完#秘密 我相信 #明天會更好

Hi everyone! My name is Carly McDade, @embodyedtides, and I am SO excited to be in the driver’s seat for A Better Life Therapy’s Instagram account this week!
💫
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Yoga Teacher, and Reiki Practitioner, I approach therapy from a holistic perspective. I help clients shift away from overly critical self-talk, towards more empowering narratives. We work on this together through mind/body techniques including mindfulness, breath exercises, and exploring compassionate language. I believe a combination of modalities like these can support individuals, couples, AND families. We all want to feel valued. We all need connection. We all wish to be heard.
💫
Keep checking in! I’ll be putting up stories, quotes, & posts - including 7 of my favorite books, 1 pictured every day! Feel free to engage with comments or questions 🙏🏻 Thanks for visiting!

Re-author your life story with us, at Anupa Mehta’s Narrative Therapy support group, which draws on Narrative therapy practices. This therapy is a respectful form of psychotherapy which holds that people are the experts of their own lives. Review your problem story to create preferred narratives with supportive and like minded people in a caring and confidential environment. Come, talk it through! #rewriteyourlifestorywithus #healwithus #narrativetherapy #anupamehta #therapy #lifestory #healing

Consider switching things up when you feel stuck. Whether it’s changing jobs, friends, or how you spend your free time, be willing to step out and shake things up. Change can be scary, yet oftentimes necessary for a happier, healthier life. We become more like those who we surround ourselves with, so go where the love is and move away from toxic relationships and environments. #boundaries #counseling #privatepractice #lpcintern #depression #anxiety #anxietyrelief #anxietyhelp #fortworth #fortworththerapist #fortworthcounselor #growth #addiction #addictionrecovery #cbt #solutionfocused #therapy #narrativetherapy #counseling #psychology #mooddisorders #help #copingskills #change
