Currently I'm in transition. After sacrificing two years of my life to graduate school in Connecticut I've moved to Virginia to pursue a career as an adolescent therapist. It's been a difficult yet necessary journey.
I value things like honesty, deep conversations, books, coffee, love, acceptance, individuality and humor. All these things genuinely make me feel good. I'm pretty successful at letting the trivial (and even not so trivial) things go because I value my peace of mind and serenity more than anything. I believe that treating myself well is the foundation to treating others well. No one wants to be around someone who is being negative or miserable including myself when I start to act that way. Lastly, I'm at my best when my attitude can see the world through a glass that is half full. My drink of choice is gratitude. Optimism is my way out.
