I am in a very unique and reflective position in my life right now. That is one of the reasons I started the Therapy Session Reflections segments. I moved to a bi-weekly session, and this has allowed me to have a longer reflection time on each one of my hours. I believe this will allow greater clarity and provide me with more time to unravel these important sessions.

So, many things have led me to where I am now, that is a place of unparalleled peacefulness. I am at my absolute best, financially, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally, more than I’ve ever been in life. It is quite astounding, considering one year ago, I was at my absolute worse emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. What a difference a year makes.

I’ve grown so much this year and learned so much about who I was in the past. That growth has allowed me to start to tap into the person I am supposed to be, and that will lead me toward getting in touch with that person. Right now, I am loving what I am learning about that person, and I am looking forward to embracing more of her.


In Week 30 of my therapy session, my therapist dropped a bomb question on me as she often does. The goal was to have me reflect upon that until we meet again.

“Did you know that Lotus grow in a mess of mud and thrive to become beautiful flowers? So, ANAIS, how do you thrive growing from that, now?”

I have given this so much thought last week. I circled back to it today while I had an impromptu family meeting with my son. We were discussing plans for the future and talking about how invested we are in staying where we are currently. We also were reveling at how different life is for me and how drastically things have changed in the last year. Everything is different. He said, “Mom, your life has totally hit RESET. The world is literally yours. You can go where you want, do what you want and with whom you want to do it. Unlike last year, you now have the resources to do it.”

So between the bomb question dropped and the conversation with my son, I spent some time thinking about how things have shifted. We are rarely allowed the opportunity to hit the RESET on our lives. It is a unique gift that has presented unexpectedly and through some adversity.


At one time, I felt like I’d live enough life, had some accomplishments so I could go out of this world knowing that. It was never a thought about harming myself, only that I’d lived a fulfilled life. I no longer feel like that because I feel as if I have a lot more life to live and way more new things to experience.

So it’s time for me to rise like a lotus, radiate this positive energy and reset the trajectory of my existence to embrace more life, enjoy more experiences, and love more people.

WHEW, therapy can really take you to a different place and allows you to tap into a consciousness that you were previously unaware of before starting sessions. That is truly life-altering. When I tell you that therapy is a game-changer, I mean it.

Next week’s session will involve some of the things that were my wins and/ or challenges:
🔸Forget about looking thought peepholes, tear down the entire door.
🔸Forgiveness of others, myself, and beyond.
🔸Meeting new people and moving out of my comfort zone more.

I would love to know your thoughts on putting therapy session lessons to work in everyday situations. How are you taking what you’ve learned in therapy and applying them to your life in real-time? Reach out, let’s chat on FBIG, and Twitter. Until then, Happy Healing and Happy Unpacking.
