Welcome to my Blog! As an adjunct to my clinical practice, I created this blog to provide information and support for individuals and couples who can benefit from my psychological and spiritual expertise. I offer psychotherapy in a safe and confidential environment, as well as, dynamic workshops on spirituality, conquering fears, overcoming hurdles and breaking through general apathy.
Yes, conquests are important in life. We need to learn to conquer the things that bother us, worry us, or bring us down. Sometimes the best way to do that is through acceptance. Peaceful acceptance sometimes stops the worry when we realize there is nothing we can do to change or control a situation. That acceptance is probably the most difficult thing you have had to do in your life. Accepting a child’s choices that are not in his/her best interest is a conquest more painful than probably than any other. Learning that you cannot control your adult child’s drug or alcohol use is a painful conquering and not one that parents easily accept. You know there is an acceptance when you feel a sense of inner peace inside of yourself that you have not experienced. Then you have fully practiced the definition of conquests: the control, defeat, or overthrow of that which is invading you. The conquest to acceptance requires energy, it does not happen by passivity. It is defined, direct, and destined to create a place of peace in your heart and life where you can not imagine it being. Also, conquests requires repetition. Repetition of the same behaviors, attitudes, and actions that continue to make room for a peaceful place inside, in the midst of emotional pain. Acceptance is the ammunition required to conquer all that matters to us so that we can live abundantly peaceful lives regardless of the chaos and pain around us.
