“L” is not always for Loser #reverb10


What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today.

I want to achieve my MFT license. I imagine I’d feel relieved and free. Right now I’m under supervision, which is great,  but that dang “L” (as in LMFT as Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist) sure would be awesome.

Speaking of the “L”, have you ever thought about how much importance we put on things that aren’t that important? I mean, is it really that awesome to have an “L” in my name? No. Not really. Heck most of you probably didn’t even know that an “L” mattered in this line of work.

Shouldn’t I want to achieve something a little more substantial than an element of the alphabet? Why not hope to achieve something that would, you know, actually matter like world peace or a cure for cancer or an easy bake oven for all the children in Uganda?

And now I’m too depressed with my own lack of vision to even finish the rest of this prompt. Thanks, reverb10, for killing my spirit…
