Everyone has a different feeling at the end of the school year, and it can change as our roles in life change. I have always looked forward to the beginning of summer, even though I truly loved school as a student, and enjoyed helping my sons succeed in school, perhaps a little less with the things they disliked. For one it was timed tests for math facts, for the other writing “more detail” for his school papers. Overall, though, while I liked school, I love summer!
The beginning of summer gives me a burst of energy. I remember loving the end of so much structure, as a student and a mom, and the sunny weather, once we got past our California “May Gray” and “June Gloom”. That meant it was time for the beach, and there is nowhere I love more than the beach. It gives me energy, perspective, serenity, and joy. As I’m writing this, I’ve just returned from another wonderful beach outing.
So I’m excited to share that soon you should be hearing about some new possibilities here at Families Counseling. We are talking about some new programs for teens, possibly regarding social skills, possibly for kids with fairly severe problems. We’re also talking about some parenting groups, and maybe a couples group as well. Can you feel the burst of energy?
I don’t know if they will all come to pass, but you will definitely hear the news on our blog pages and our Facebook page. So please both subscribe to our mailing list, and “like” us on Facebook. If you have friends who might be interested who don’t know about us yet, please pass this along to them as well.
Happy summer, and I hope you feel a burst of energy as well!
