Life Doesn't Just Happen To Us

"The ancient Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, who was a contemporary of Confucius, Lao Tsu, and the Buddha, is reported to have said, “you can never walk though the same river twice.” More accurately, the English translation from the Greek goes thus: “The river where you set your foot just now is gone—those waters giving way to this, now this.” Put simply, Heraclitus is telling us that we live in an ever-changing world, one that is filled with the ebbs and flows of life, of life energy. He’s also advising us that, as the river (of life) changes, it’s in the past, so let it go and move on. The “new” river offers water that is filled with possibilities and untapped potential, so be prepared to go with the flow! This is great advice as we prepare for the New Year, don’t you think?"

-Being estranged from family and friends resulting in loneliness during the holiday season.
-Having an eating disorder and having to face the issue head-on during family gatherings and parties that center around food.
-Dealing with alcoholism or other addiction with alcohol being a main attraction during holiday get-togethers.
-Stress and anxiety that comes along with hosting holiday season celebrations or going to too many events.
-It's the holidays and your therapist or doctor is out of town.
