wise words wednesday {13.}...

As I have stated before; I love 'The Job'. It is stressful beyond anything I could ever imagine, but it is rewarding and amazing all at the same time. It is strange because even though I am 'The Counselor', I feel that I am learning more from my clients, than they are learning from me. I have met so many wonderful people, I have laughed with them, cried with them, and just enjoyed being around them in general. Do I have the occasional asshole client? Yes. Of course I do, but the good more than outweighs the bad.

I do doubt myself sometimes if we are being perfectly honest. I am not trained in alcohol and drug studies, I am trained in psychology. I am learning a lot, and I have a very long way to go. So, this Friday I will be running my favorite co-workers group while she is out of town. This is a group I co-facilitate with her three times a week. It is a perinatal program, which means the women in the day program come to us for 5 hours, three days a week, and they bring their kids to our daycare. These women are amazing. I am inspired by them daily and I love them all and their children. This is a large group. It is a total of 15 clients. Whoa. I have ran groups by myself, but only when there were 5 people and it was for an hour. I have ran this group under supervision. But as of Friday, I am flying solo. I am terrified. Which brings me to the wise words of today...
{13.} Wise Words...
Do I have an answer? Not yet, but I am working on it. Step one? Well, that will be stepping up on Friday and rocking that group so hard that the ladies will not know what him them.

So what would YOU all do if you had no fear? Please share!

xoxo

I probably would've told more guys I liked them. Then again, I'm more than happy with my hubby now so i guess it wouldn't have made a difference! I think fear of rejection in general holds people back (doesn't have to be about boys), so wouldn't it be nice to not have that, right? (:

You got me all thinkin deep over here.. :p

I have so many fears. I have actually been thinking about this a lot and I read another blog post about it today. I'm not sure what I would do but I have decided that facing and conquering your fears will give you freedom. I also believe that freedom gives you everthing.

First; you will rock that group on Friday. End of story.

If I had no fear... I'd probably ask this guy out on a date. Or even add him on facebook. But yeah, I'm lame and afraid to make a fool of myself, so I won't.

Um if I had no fear? I would quit my job and back pack the world finding odd jobs here & there. I would love being a nomad (I think).

& you will rock it friday, I'm so proud of you!

You are amazing! You will do so so great and I think your job is AWESOME and you are AWESOME and what you do for others is inspiring. If I had no fear? I would apply for more jobs that I'm actually not quite qualified for (since those are the only ones out there) and really sell myself in my cover letters rather than feeling mediocre and feeling like I already didn't get the job before I complete the application materials.
