So I’ve been having recurrent dreams for the past few months about him and I, and I notice that they reflect how I have been feeling during each part of this journey that I’ve been dreaming in. It’s really quite interesting. Freud had said that “dreams are the royal road to the unconscious”. I don’t think Freud would be so impressed, because my dreams look a lot like my conscious. In today’s day and age, it is popular belief in the psychology world that dreams function to help the dreamer to work through certain events not yet fully processed or understood. I agree with this and am firsthand witnessing it. I wake up feeling an array of emotions sometimes, and say to myself that this is normal. Our brains are so amazing. I’ve been considering going back to school for psychology research. I have to focus on one thing at a time and am not ready to make any committments to really anything right now, other than building a better life for myself as an independent woman. Every day I think about what I want to be when I grow up, and if what I am doing is what I want to continue with. I am looking for my niche in the field and am looking in other places as well. I pray that one day soon I will know, as I begin to learn how listen to my own voice and make decisions accordingly. My family has instilled in me that if I have a true passion and interest, the money will flow. I feel that I may have been too focused on the money and materialistic aspect of things. This was partly due to outside influences. I wonder what magic would happen if I let go of the money concern and followed my dreams? I wasn’t planning to take this blog post from the literal to the figurative dreams, but so be it! Let it happen. Let it flow! It’s a rainy Sunday (cue: Maroon 5) morning at 9 AM and I am in bed, listening to the rain and about to do some reading. I have a new Sunday routine where I go to the gym, then go to church, and then do whatever, including seeing my family, for the rest of the day. I may write again today, if something comes up. If not, I will talk to you all soon enough!

Hello, my name is Marie. I am a 20-something who wants to heal her emotional wounds and help her clients to heal as well. I am a clinical social worker (almost fully-licensed LCSW!) who deeply cares about my clients. I try to use my own life lessons, trials, and tribulations to better help myself and others. I pride myself in presenting to my clients as "more-human-than-most" and often let them know that I am a work in progress as well. I attribute my vast collection of self-help books on my book shelf not only to my clients' "presenting problems" but also my own. I have attempted to create 2 blogs recently on a different site and found myself feeling frustrated and expressing negativity and anger (this was leading up to my breakup). Now that I am in a different place, I aim to keep this blog positive, but real, as I share with you my journey toward healing my body, mind, and spirit--and finding myself somewhere along the way. I will be sharing my favorite resources, quotes, and pictures that are helping me through this difficult time. My hope is that you will find some healing from this blog and from my experiences.
