Off Topic: Happy New Year!


I couldn’t let the New Year pass without sending good wishes to everyone.

During this time of year, many people take the time to make New Year’s resolutions. In connection to that theme, I had an amazing group this past week. I thought I would post pictures of my patients’ responses to the following group exercise.

I asked my patients to share on the question: “I want to live in a world where there is ……” 
Here is a picture of their responses:


The next question was: “to create this world, I will……”

Here is a picture of their responses:


Next week we will discuss how we can create the world that we want to live in.

This is part of an international art project sponsored by the UN. I thought this could be a nice opportunity to be a part of this international effort.

Thank you everyone for all your time and support. I never anticipated that this simple blog could be so much fun! I am learning so much.

May the coming year be filled with peace, joy, and love.

Happy New Year!

With blessings,

Carol and family


Here is the link for where I got the idea for the group:

      Yes! Apparently, this is part of an international effort. When people participate, it leads to improved self-awareness and connection with others. I am so happy you enjoyed their answers.

    People are so busy in life they don’t create the time to “live in a world where there is…..” or think about what it takes “to create this world, I will…”. This was a great exercise to create better awareness. These are the simple questions that people need to begin asking themselves to grow from within and become the people they choose to be.

    What a perfectly outstanding idea. I will look it up and see how I might engage a few people myself. The first thing that springs to mind is that two of my daughters are art students …. perhaps, perhaps, perhaps – anyway, enough of my half-baked mutterings. I wish you and your family and all that you care for the most beautiful of celebrations and a New Year full of love, laughter and content. x
