Welcome to the Lyon Counseling Center Blog! Our hope is that this can be a place where we can share resources and connect with each other. We are hoping it will be an opportunity for us to provide support, and allow each of you to better know who we are and what we do. We will feature posts from some of our talented therapists as well as community partners.
This blog has been an objective for LCC for some time now. Like many goals and objectives, it was put on the back burner as other things took precedence. As we enter into the new year and set new intentions for our lives, let us consider what we are putting on the back burner and should it be there? Are we prioritizing our own wellness or are we depleting ourselves trying to juggle a million things at one time? Are we putting our needs on the back burner? Are we attempting to make resolutions that align with who society thinks we should be or what we think will make us happy?
What if we let go of those expectations and worked to connect to who we truly are and what we truly desire? What truly brings us joy? What if we connected with what brings us acceptance, confidence, peace, wisdom, and compassion for ourselves and others. What would it look like if we prioritized those things in our lives?
Who are you when you let go of what you’re expecting yourself to be?
