Well, this is exciting! I feel very impressed with myself for being able to create my own website!! Of course, I was eased in by the Wix system, which was super-intuitive and a rather smooth ride, but still...a new website!
But what does this really mean? Does it mean anything at all? Does it mean I have arrived in some shape or form? Or does it mean I am just another drop in the ocean of online personas that gets largely unnoticed? There's a lot of noise out there!
I'm not sure whether I have really arrived anywhere. And I don't think this is a new me. But I do have a few hopes for this website...
I hope to consolidate everything in one place. Sometimes it's all so confusing, all the different platforms, activities and outcomes. This website is a place for all of my projects to come back to. Or maybe it's the place from which to get to all those other projects. Either way, it's a chance to consolidate.
I hope to offer resources that are helpful. This website will offer a whole range of resources in the categories of therapy, training and research. I hope I can upload all sorts of stuff that people can access, learn about, and use in their daily life. The focus will be on motivational interviewing and compassion focused therapy, but let's see what we can come up with.
I hope to keep spreading the word of compassion! Yep, in some ways I am a one trick compassion-pony! But nevertheless, I am dedicated to spreading the word of compassion at work, at home, in the community, in relationships, and of course within oneself. Let's do this, let's imagine and create a more compassionate world!
Thank you for visiting my new website! And thank you for reading this little piece; my first blog! Let me know your thoughts, be in touch any time, and I wish you all the very best on your compassionate journey!
