How did your day go? I'm tired, so straight to my gratitudes I go:
Calming a Tense Moment
1. Someone this afternoon was severely disturbed, upsetting the Alamedan community. I worked with the police and a local agency, helping this person. The occasion was similar to work I once did in a psychiatric hospital.
Joy of Work
2. I enjoy the flexibility my work provides; I call my own hours, which is nice. Those I work with, I pick. Contributing towards the well-being of others makes
my job satisfying. My profession exercises my mind, where I apply material acquired over thousands of hours of study and personal application.
Watching People Heal and Grow
3. Seeing clients get better, helping them experience increasing joy---through exercising healthy alternatives---makes each day rich. Those I serve learn how to self-express (using nonviolent communication), grow in understanding themselves, and experience wholeness. They find healing in areas that had been emotionally or psychological fractured. That leaves me with a good feeling.
