I decided to start blogging as I realized that I was flooded with thoughts that would have been too overwhelming to post on facebook. I have an incredible army of supporters on facebook and did not want to overburden them with the minute details of my challenging times. Plus, as a psychologist, how many times have I “strongly encouraged” my patients to journal about the adversity in their lives as studies have shown therapeutic and healing benefits of writing about one’s challenges and difficulties. I always told my patients though that they had to write with a pen on a piece of paper because apparently there is something in the physical act of writing but “miss goody two shoes” (as my husband likes to affectionately call me) decided to break a rule, for once, and write on my computer!
I thought about how I would title my blog for a long time and decided to go with the law of attraction which believes that by focusing on positive thoughts one can bring about positive results. I will do anything and everything that can help…. Fred has been telling me for years to write a book – who knows, now that I have plenty of time on my hands, maybe this could be my big break!
