Why Me

Rather than thinking of the deficits and of the things that you do not have, how would your life change if you were to wake up tomorrow more grateful?  Would you be able to point out the things in your life that you are grateful for that sometimes go unnoticed?  What about the people in your life that you are grateful for, have you told them lately?  Would you tell them?

As a society we get so caught up in the daily battles with ourselves and others that we forget all of the beautiful priceless “things” around us.  Rather than re-directing ourselves to view from a more grateful perspective, we get caught up in the “why me” or the sarcastic “great” mindset.

What are your priceless pieces in your life? Are you able to appreciate them?  When was the last time you said “thank you” to someone and really meant it?  The words “I appreciate you” or “I am grateful for…” do not come out of our mouths very often and yet those words can take you so far and change your whole day and possibly make someone else’s.

Waking up in the morning and focusing on the things in your life that you are grateful for is one of the first steps to being healthy.  Healthy minds are grateful for the beauty around them and they are able to recognize and appreciate that beauty.

Do you recognize the beauty that is all around you?  Is your picture of life a little muddy and making it hard to focus in on the beautiful things and beings in your life?  Give us a call/text and let’s figure it out together.  Life is too short to not be grateful.

Seriously, how would your day look?

Just Be

Be in the now. We get so caught up in our daily responsibilities of life and trying to prove to others that we are mature, responsible, and worth it that we lose track of  “where” we are. Fully embrace the moment.  Embrace the people you are with.

How exactly do you “live in the moment?” Start by feeling your toes in our shoes.  Feel each step that you take.  Wiggle your fingers.  Feel your arms. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, do not think about anything else except what you are doing at that moment in time.  When you are with your significant other, “be” with them. When you are with your kids, “be” with them.  At work? “Be” at work.

Don’t forget to take time to be grateful for the moments that you are in.

Just be in the now.

Perceived Communication

Has anyone ever told you that you mean well but you come across as something different? Is there a certain group or type of person that tells you this? Then you may be giving off a vibe in your communications and are not aware of it.

We sometimes have women who come in and communicate differently to men than they do to women and they do not realize they are doing it. This is also true for some men as well towards women.  It can be because they had a verbally abusive father, were traumatized by a man or physically abused by a man. This is also true for some men as well towards women.

When this happens the communication is negative and defensive thus breaking down any form of assertive communication that may exist.

If you feel this is happening to you then call Star Point Counseling Center at 813-244-1251 and set an appointment to see one of our therapists to help you work through your perceived communication.
