Alive, Self-Aware, and Loving It!

I am a 57 year old survivor of severe childhood trauma, who has spent the better part of the past three decades in recover. I have, through the hard introspective work of psychotherapy, gained a great deal of insight of myself, and it has given me a new outlook on life. I am a writer. I have self-published ten books, write for an online writing agency, and run my own blog site which has grown to international acclaim. My topics range from the effects of childhood trauma on adults, to lessons I have learned becoming self-aware, such as life isn't easy and life isn't fair. I spend my days at my computer, pumping out articles and editing others for other blog sites. I also attend college, and have earned my Associates in Arts for Psychology. I have just recently entered a four year university, where I am a senior and plan on gaining my Bachelor's of Arts degree next year. My ultimate goal is to earn a PhD in psychology and to teach about dissociative disorders to up and coming therapists and psychiatrists. This may seem like an odd plan for a 57 year old woman to have, but I feel confident I can accomplish it. Even if I die before I achieve my goal, it will have been an enjoyable adventure trying! As you can see, I am a highly motivated individual who sees the sky as the limit for her future.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
