Thankful for meaningful work

This thanksgiving I'm most thankful for meaningful work.  I'm a Master of Counseling Intern for an Outpatient Mental Health Agency.  I am honored to work with my clients.  They share so much of their lives and who they are at their very core.  I love helping them work through their issues and through their decisions to make important changes in their lives.  I'm just an advocate or caring observer to their struggles who helps them examine their lives and choices from different angles.  They do all the hard work and are to be applauded for their successes.  I'm a sounding board, someone to reflect back their feelings, and bring focus to things they might be forgetting to consider.

Some great things I've discovered lately 
Brene Brown's TedTalk on Youtube on Vulnerability

The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman .  

Dr. John Gottman’s

I'll be posting other great things I come across that might be helpful to my friends and clients.
Have a wonderful holiday!
