New opportunities Feb. 8th, 2015 @ 11:49 am
I have found office space in Delafield to open an office closer to home.  Both excited and nervous about the prospects.

As the year dies. Dec. 31st, 2012 @ 11:51 am
As usual, I am in a reflective mood on this eve of the new year.  This year has been one of many changes, great and small, almost all for the better for me.  The worst have just been a matter of maintaining what has been before but with a different spin.  I am really loving being a mom, despite the sleep dep and the fact that I never get to eat a hot meal anymore.  Watching my son develop and playing with him has brought joy back into my life on a regular basis.  I will teach him to be the sort of man that is admired and loved. He will learn honesty, integrity, compassion, kindness, curiosity and so many practical skills.  Given that the men in my past have largely lacked many of these traits, it is a blessing that I have none in my life currently.  There really has not been a lessening of the contempt I feel for most men that exploded into being a couple years ago.  Every opportunity I have given a man to prove me wrong has just reinforced my feeling that, at least those in my age range, they are useless.  Pampered, spoiled, self centered, selfish, callous wastes of flesh strutting around making the lives of those around them more difficult.  I guess Hunter is the universe's way of making sure that I have the opportunity to make the future a better place, even if only on a small scale.
My private practice has finally started to grow to something like respectable.  With the addition of neurotherapy in the coming year, I have hopes of actually being able to make a living. I really enjoy my career and wish that it were easier for people to be able to afford the help I can offer.  It is unfortunate that even with the clear proof that access to mental health services needs to be expanded, the politicos are taking the wrong path and appear to have their heads so far up their butts that a map and a flashlight would not help.
In addition to continuing my education, I am looking forward to more beekeeping and chicken raising in the new year.  Each hobby has been so rewarding. I am looking forward to the spring when I will have three hives going. I am still unsure of placement and need to make a sweep of the property to destroy wasp nests before it gets warm.  I also need to expand my market for fresh eggs.  I am getting about 35 eggs a day right now and they are beginning to stack up. 
So much to do in the new year. I am starting from a much better place this year then when this year began. Happiness and prosperity are my goals. I will accept nothing less.

Getting new skills Dec. 3rd, 2012 @ 05:04 pm
I have started the process of getting certified in neurotherapy.  It is once more into the breach with regards to education but I am very excited at the possibilities.  I think it will be immensely helpful to be able to directly measure the effect my therapeutic interventions have on my clients brains.  It is difficult to find the time to study as a single mom but I am so happy to find that the past few years of punishing levels of stress have not done lasting damage to my mind.

Mandatory entry Nov. 5th, 2012 @ 07:27 pm
I got an email threatening to purge my account. To be honest, I had forgotten about this place or I would have been using it more in the past year.  So much has happened. So much has changed.  My entire world has been remade or rather is in the ongoing process of being remade.  I think I will try to be on here more often.  It is a way to express myself that is less public than FB, where I now have family censoring me but more public than a text document on my computer.
Does anyone else still use this site? Sound off if you do.

Abrupt mood changes Jan. 13th, 2009 @ 06:19 pm
I was in a good mood most of the day.  I am not sure what happened by sometime in the afternoon I found myself feeling hostile towards everyone and everything and just wanting the world to burn.  Luckily I didnt have any afternoon clients show for their appointments as it would have been hard to be a compasionate listener in my current state of mind.

"There comes a point where you love someone. Not because they're good, or bad, or anything really. You just love them. It doesn't mean you'll be together forever. It doesn't mean you won't hurt each other. It just means you love them. Sometimes in spite of who they are and sometimes because of who they are. And you know that they love you, sometimes because of who you are, and sometimes in spite of it."

It has been a long time since my last post. And that time has been busy. The biggest block to getting back on the blog wagon has been a series of hard drive failures that has left me frequently pulling my hair out in frustration. I hope that this is now a thing of the past.
Since my last post I have lost my last job, gotten a new job that is currently temporary but may end up permanent, had a family of five move into my home, and spent a lot of time working on my personal demons.
Just on a larkm I retook one of the blogthing quizzes that were a part of my last entry and I find the changes interesting.

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.

In love, you feel the most alive when your lover is creative and never lets you feel bored.

You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.

Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything... no secrets.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.

In this moment, you think of love as something you can get or discard anytime. You're feeling self centered.

I am slowly recovering the self respect that I allowed to slip away and seeking to become comfortable alone, or at least to no longer feels desperately unhappy when I am not part of a partnership or group or family.

I am currently reflecting on regret, the whys and hows and whats. At an intitial glance it is a nasty emotion, full of pain and laced with no small part of self loathing. It is not uncommon to hear the young declare that they will never regret their decisions. I can clearly hear myself saying this in the past. It is a part of liberty/freedom, that an adult be allowed to make decisions and deal with the consequences on their own, good or bad. Does this view of freedom also dictate that a true adult will not feel regret when dealing with the long term consequences of decisons? I guess that is the central question that I will be pondering for a bit. I like to pride myself on being a free adult, but I am finding that, more and more, I look at my past and feel regret for choices I have made and wonder what my life would be like now if I had chosen differently. Does this mean I am growing up or getting old?

Your birth on the 11th day of the month makes you something of a dreamer and an idealist.
