We often get bombarded with the under-belly of life with our job. Not to mention the everyday of our general life that can be soul-shearing.
If we feel this way, it’s safe to say that our clients do as well.
When I assign the 5 things of gratitude task (like Oprah suggests) as a homework task, my clients off struggle, especially the ones suffering from depression.
I get it. It makes sense that it seems impossible to see the good when you feel like you are in a hole and have no idea how things will ever be better.
I suggest showing this video or assigning it as a homework task to your clients as a way to provide an example of how to really see the good in our everyday life. Not to ignore the real pain that is present- but to also appreciate the little things, like a car that starts or hot water in the morning.
I’ll be bookmarking this video myself to watch on days when it feels like I’m running in circles and wonder why I chose this life.
I’m here for a purpose. It’s all connected. Our clients do have hope. It’s our job to help them see that.
This video may provide a little peek of light in the darkness for ourselves as well as our clients.
Here’s your challenge. Leave a one word comment describing your feelings after watching this video. I dare you.
