Teaching Clients to Appreciate what’s Around Them

So here in America, we're just coming off of one of our major holidays, which we refer to as Thanksgiving.

Always be your authentic self

So this is a big day for me. I was invited to come speak to a class here at Texas Christian University, TCU. And for many, many years there were professors here that didn't like me. I'll say that, and I won't go into reasons why, but they were, they were for reasons of things I could not control. And recently some of those professors have retired and there's a new professor there, and she asked me [...]
