Fall Issue 2017

New Article

Poet Meghan O’Rourke wrote: There is a discomfort that surrounds grief. It makes even the most well-intentioned people unsure of what to say. And so many of the freshly bereaved end up feeling even more alone. Unfortunately, that is true and more commonly occurring than one might think. Meet Colleen and Anita in this issue’s article. Listen in to their revealing conversation in “What Can I Say?”

Point to Ponder

The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.
—Marcus Antonius, died 87 BC

There doesn’t seem to be much that I can add to this, if anything. More and more research indicates that everything begins in the brain and that feelings and actions follow one’s thoughts. So, if you want to alter the way you feel and manage your actions and behaviors effectively, you must identify your thoughts and change them. Your brain can only do what it thinks it can do and you are the one to tell it what it can do; give your brain a picture of what you want it to help you do.
