I Haven't Shaken It Off Yet....

"There is much that is wrong with the world. The road twists and turns and it is long, and I forget, sometimes, about the horizon and the mountains and the blue. I forget where I am and I narrow my eyes and clench my fists when strangers approach me to offer me kindness, and when I stand alone on an empty beach I check the time in case there’s someplace else I need to be. I haven’t shaken it off yet, this instinct we have to annihilate our moments, to turn them into dust and build them into hours and days and weeks and months and years, just so we can look back and see all these piles of time that we’ve collected, burial mounds of dead time, because we didn’t have the sense to live the moments that it’s made of.

Seasons...

 
Counselling in Dublin City Centre"J spoke about the natural laws that govern the seasons, how the fields could give the appearance of fallowness, yet the seeds were sheltering underground. Winter was a period of hibernation and incubation, when energy could restore itself. There could be a spiritual intelligence in staying low to the ground, but the ground itself was not dead. Green spring always came back."
 
~ To Call Myself Beloved, Eina McHugh
 
 
 
 

A Bit of Self-Care...

Self-care - counselling in dublinCounselling and psychotherapy can help you to gain a deeper understanding of what is happening for you, how you are living, and what may be underlying difficulties that you are experiencing. Through exploration and reflection we can work together to deepen your self-knowledge, to empower you to make new choices, and to further develop your ability to tolerate and cope with life's challenges. Much of what supports change occurs in the therapy hour.
 
And much of it doesn't.
