Diary of a Maddening Happy Woman

My toughest client yet has reached out to start seeking help. Although I would never disclose any personal issues that are divulged in our confidential sessions, this particular client has issues that should be shared and has given me an all-access pass to try and understand these barriers and overcome them.

She (can I say she?) is messy, disorganized, an imperfect perfectionist, loud, all-too forgiving, rambunctious, wild, perpetually happy, approval-seeking mess with all sorts of issues. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, my first client is me.

Before I start the break down on how I plan to address and conquer each of these magnificent issues, I would like to break down the notion that these are issues for me but may not be issues for anyone else. It is a very interesting paradigm to think in terms of opportunities instead of devastation. For example, I may not be particularly proud of the fact that I am messy, but my creativity and ability to pounce on out-of-the-ordinary slices of life comes from my non-linear thinking. This is not to say that all of us need to be cookie cutter (here goes the approval-seeking in me!) in how we choose to live our lives. The common thread in all of my separate issues are that a) I am not the only one and b) I need to find the way to best catalog them into positives instead of negatives. This is know. Follow me along for the ride of self-discovery and the unraveling of the journey.
