Mindfullness & Mondays

I've been sleeping for most of this weekend thanks to this chest cold. However, now caught up on school work I'm going to nap for a few hours, wake up for some mindfulness practice, and then head over to my doctors when they open at 6 so I can weasel my way into an appointment and hopefully come out of it with a Z-Pack (or something); I have too much to get done this week to be kept down by a chest cold...and I really don't want to have to go to urgent care and spend $75.00 when I can spend $15.00 for a regular visit.

Anyway, may our Monday's bring with them as little frustration as possible, enough chocolate to see us through, and plenty of coffee.

Election Reflection

So I awoke at 5:30am on November 9th to hear the news.

This past week in Interventions I, our professor, Denise talked about the importance of "then what" (i.e. you're not going to smoke...then what are you going to do instead?) when setting goals with clients.

I am not, I cannot just accept the results of the US election as if they don't impact me, my right to exist, my friends, my friends' right to exist, my family, my classmates, my colleagues, my neighbors, or my clients...so there are a lot of then whats, right now:

I'm going to redouble my efforts to expand Food Gnomes and continue to feed the hungry. I am also going to move forward with getting the Food Gnomes Potluck program to bring people together for meals and conversations off the ground. We need the mutual support and that's always better over broken bread.

I am going to continue to volunteer with the UBSSW at Friends of Night People because I foresee a much more difficult four years for them than for myself.

I am going to once again start teaching sex education, not just at conventions where we have flashy titles like Gay Sex: 101 but wherever possible and appropriate because knowledge is power and empowerment and wellness and safety...and because curriculum changes may be coming.

I will call all of my clients by next week and schedule some longer sessions with them, so they can process their fears about reduced Medicaid and other entitlement programs.

And, more importantly, I am going to go into my field placement each week bright eyed and bushy tailed and do everything I can do so that all of my students, of every background, know how much they matter, how much they are valued, how happy we are to have them there, and how much they have a right to be there.

L'Shanah Tova U'metukah

Wishing everyone a good and sweet New Year 5777.

This pas year has been so wonderful, and also so incredibly hard. It has been filled with challenges I'd never thought I'd have to deal with, and successes I would have never dreamed possible. It has been filled with incredible highs, and equally incredible lows, bringing it to be one of the most cosmically balanced years yet. What has been clear from this past year, and something I am taking with me moving forward, is the need for both balance, but also the incredible role that my friends play in my life, and doing all I can to be more open to sharing and giving of myself and my time to them, as they have been to me.

May the Days of Awe that follow this evening bring with them an opportunity for all of us to take time to self-reflect, and to take an accounting of our souls, before we stand before the divine on the Day of Judgement.

Testing a better client...

Okay testing an application that lets me do mood, auto detects music from iTunes, and let's me manage my user pics...
