I went out on a date to several thrift stores near where I live and in Blacksburg/Christiansburg on Saturday. My date found some good stuff as did I. The stuff I found was for the kids at school mainly. I ran across the organ pictured here at the salvation army. No I didn’t buy it, but when I looked at it, I was automatically sent back to the ages between 4-11 years old. My grandmother used to have an organ in her den that me, my brother and cousin used to play with just to make noise and touch on. Hers was a lot bigger but similar to this one. Even though we played on it the sound of the organ freaked me out sometimes bc it always sounded like “death” or a funeral. As a kid that’s just how I felt but at the same time I loved it sitting there as a fixture in her den. I have no idea where that organ went after she passed away but seeing this on Saturday sent me waaaayyy back..back when everybody was still here. My brother, grandparents, some cousins..hmmm

Counseling is the name of my game. I have counseled so many individuals since my early days of case management when I was just 22 years old. I have seen a lot and been through the highs and lows of working in the helping profession. My back especially can tell you the story of what's it's like to not take self care seriously when working 60 hour week, plus grad school and personal events. I would like to help those who have also not done well in the self care department. Help me..help you counselor. Counseling4Counselor is the place for you!! Check out my other blog as well, which depicts a transition I made due to being burned out in the helping profession. Update September 2014: I moved back to Nashville from Blacksburg, Salem/Roanoke area after being away almost three years. I transitioned from a big southern city to a much smaller rural college town in a little under 3 years. What I learned about myself, God, and other people is priceless..The biggest lessons came when I came back home to Nashville and how the changes within myself, my city and others affected my whole world. Transitions are not easy. They are challenging, full of joy, disappointments, encouraging, feelings of abandonment, feelings of great nostalgia and the whole bipolar like spectrum..without the mania and without the diagnosis. hehe.
