Looking forward to an afternoon full with appointments. When you’re passionate about your work, it shows externally through the effect you have on others and internally through the joy you feel in your soul.

Sometimes people ask me if it’s draining to “listen to other people’s problems all day.” Nope, it actually energizes me. As a couples counselor and mental health therapist, I get to witness incredible healing, growth, connection and change each day I’m in the office.

I’m so grateful to get this type of fulfillment from my work, and I know (from personal experience) that sometimes we’re employed in situations that aren’t as fulfilling–and we don’t always have the option to leave.  We can get the same benefits from prioritizing a hobby or relationship that gives us this fulfillment.  What brings you joy and how are you making room for it in your life?
