Empty Stage: A Prayer To The Muse

Facing Fear

Grace, please quiet my pacing mind and help me stay in one place.

Please bring me back every time I drift.

Help me remember that what I seek is found only on the other side of honest work.

 

Grace please help me remember to go slow

for it is only when life slows down that I see the details 

It is the details which tell the story

 

Grace please help me remember - I am not inventing anything.

I am merely a witness who records what she sees.

Help me honor what I see by writing it down.

 

Thank you for love and fear.

They keep my senses sharp and my soul singing.

Help me honor the mountain of journals which have brought me to this morning.

Grace, please sit with me while I tell my story today.

Patients Require Compassion, Not Just Competence, From Doctors

True story: A man who severely cut his hand while using a table saw ran screaming into the emergency room of a local hospital. The attending doctor asked that he be given a dose of morphine to calm him down. When he continued screaming, he was given a second dose. And then another. And then another. Realizing that the drug was having absolutely no effect, the doctor put his hands on the man’s shoulders, looked him in the eye and said, “You’re going to be just fine.” Immediately the man relaxed and fell asleep.

5 Life Lessons I Learned From Hiking

hiking

Daily life can bring with it a lot of stress. We get caught up in our obligations to work and our family, so sometimes it’s hard to make time for ourselves to recharge - but that’s exactly what we need to do on a regular basis. Finding an activity that hits your internal “reset” button so you can feel rejuvenated and ready to take on the daily grind once again is necessary not only for coping with stress, but for living a healthy life - whether it’s meditation, yoga, going for a run, or swimming some laps. For me, that activity is hiking.

Inside Couples Counseling Tips: 10 Ways To Stay Connected

couples
 In couples counseling with us, couples complain that they’ve grown distant. They find themselves living parallel lives under the same roof. Lives are ruled by roles, routines, and deadlines, and they feel no real connection with one another. Lost is the simple joy of being together and even the idea that spending time together might be "fun”. The person who was once their best friend is a stranger or worse an enemy. Sex has been put on the shelf gathering dust like an old trophy. Many numb themselves with alcohol or other substances to avoid dealing with the painful reality of their relationship.
