Greetings from the Editor:

Another New Year, Another New You

January is the time many of us review our lives and set personal goals. I invite you to do an exercise some of my clients do each year: write a letter to your future, a-year-from-now-self. In this letter write about things you wish to address in the coming year that will enrich your life; such as what you would like to experience, explore, and change about your personality, habits, relationships, or your life path. Put the letter away and read it a year from now.

As you write your letter, note whether you fall into either extreme. Are you an over-achiever writing ten years worth of wishes for yourself or an under-achiever with very little to say? Shoot for the middle ground. Ponder the parts of you that are over- or under-ambitious; these are perfect self-discovery issues to explore beyond this exercise.

Fortunate blessings,



Special Offer

Questions & Answers

Question: I struggle with whether or not to use medication for depression and go back and forth. When I try prescription drugs, it is a challenge for me because I do not like this choice and I feel weird, numb, and unable to fully feel. Then I take myself off the drugs and get so low that I cannot function well. My family pressures me to go back on the meds because they cannot handle my moods. What is your opinion on this subject?

Becoming the Person You Always Wanted to Marry

by Suzanne E. Harrill           

Do you ever experience any of the following dilemmas? You are married and donít want to be. You feel lonely with a partner and have found marriage very disillusioning and disappointing. Have you ever wanted a different partner, yet did not have the courage to go through the separation and divorce process? Have you been rejected by a partner and felt you could not survive alone or decided it is not worth trusting again and that it is better to say single?
