One of the main things that I am grateful for is being allowed the privilege to walk with my clients through their struggle and their lives. Every day at work I feel truly blessed to be able to support and help people while they are going through challenges as well as through their successes. I recognize that this is a unique position that I have in people’s lives and the blessings that it brings my clients are amazing but the blessings are very real for me as well. Every day that I go to work, I am reminded of the strength and courage people have as well as their ability to overcome their challenges.
A quote that I use often in my practice is “I’m thankful for my struggle, because without it I wouldn’t have stumbled across my strength (Alex Elle).” I have found this to be so very true both personally and professionally. Often, as people, we want to focus on the shiny, happy moments in our lives and forget about the rest. However, I believe that it’s more important to focus on everything and the journey of life, with all of it’s ups and downs. Every day that I work with my clients is a day that I help them focus on the strength and the rebuilding that can come after a fall and for that, I am eternally grateful to them. Through their experiences I have found my own strength, courage, and vulnerability to rebuild my life. There just aren’t enough words to express how valuable that is to me!
