I stand for helping imperfect people like myself cope with an imperfect world in a way that allows them to be the best they can be. I believe that we need to be able to accept and love ourselves (and others) as we are. I believe that to thrive we need to reach out to others and focus on the positive things in our lives – not by pretending that everything is perfect, but acknowledging that we all know what we want in life and we all have the resources to get there. A memory of an obstacle we have overcome is the first step to overcoming the next one. Life isn’t perfect, but it’s full of good things if we look for them and those good things can help us make our life even better. I stand positively by your side!
