Greetings from the
Spring Is In the Air
The joy of springtime, inspired by the brilliant rainbow
colors of wildflowers, new leaves sprouting on the trees, and
the fields of grass turning from brown to green, reminds us of
new growth ready to sprout within us. No matter how long you
have been on the self-discovery journey, there is always more
to learn about yourself and new ways to grow. As you observe
all the new growth in the world around you, think about some
experiences that will add new growth to your life. Choose one
today and picture yourself taking small steps to begin
bringing this new growth into bloom in your life.
As a psychiatrist, I have been a witness to
the gamut of difficult life circumstances, but none can
compare with the pain of loss, particularly the loss of a
loved one. What I find, however, to be most important in
healing, is how an individual actually handles the grief
process. It often concerns me when a patient does not wish to
talk about the deceased, but rather almost pretend they are
still alive. The healthiest approach is to mourn, especially
with support of family members and friends, the loss, and
recount the wonderful memories. In a way, this keep’s the
loved one alive, in one’s heart anyway...

Dear Suzanne: I pray that as you
read this letter it will let you know how thankful I am that
you mailed me the book, Enlightening Cinderella Beyond the
Prince Charming Fantasy. That really helped me out,
because to be real with myself, I have a very low self-esteem.
Please Suzanne, if you can find me a pen pal that can write
and be a real friend who will help me grow and love myself
more. I just need someone I can "talk" to and be
open with. I need a friend that is real. Please. Thank you and
may you get all your ask for and more...
