I created this blog for you in 2010. At the time, blogs were used as journals, hobbies, communities, and income producers. I had a different goal in mind. After writing an email newsletter for years, I loved the idea of providing a venue for exchanging ideas with my readers.
While I originally started this blog for my counseling clients, it has been exciting to reach people all over the world. In 2012, Liberating Choices had 13,000 visitors from 136 countries! While I am grateful for the positive feedback I hear in my office about my writing, I would love to hear from all my readers.
Thank you for visiting, reading, and engaging with the ideas I write. The most popular posts read at Liberating Choices in 2012 were:
#1. Rekindle Emotional Intimacy in Your Relationship
#2. 5 Ways to Free The Loneliness Trap
#3. 5 Ways to Raise More Confident Kids
#4. Are You Tired of Being a Doormat?
#5. Treasures Discovered After Natural Disaster
Many of these articles were written in previous years. In order to stay relevant and useful, I would like to learn more about you and what you want to read about on this blog.

“Drench yourself in words unspoken. Live your life with arms wide open. Today is where your book begins.” ~ Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield
The year lays ahead of you like blank pages in a notebook. Are you anxious to fill in the pages of your life?
You may love the story of your life. Or, you may feel like crumpling it up and starting over. No matter where you are in your life’s story, there is always a new beginning around the corner. Just a page turn away.
“Staring at the blank page before you. Open up the dirty window. Let the sun illuminate the words.” ~ Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield
As you stare at your blank pages, I want to be a resource for you. A few of you share how you want to write your life’s story:
- Less quick tempered
- End procrastination
- Squash complaining
- More positive outlook
- Improve self-confidence
- Master time management
- Sleep and exercise well
- Vibrant health
I’m on this journey too, as a fellow life traveler. Each day, I’m a work in progress, not a masterpiece. But we are beautiful as we work on ourselves; that is, if we choose to view learning life’s lessons this way.
I will continue to share what I’m learning in life and my work. I want to use this writing space well by exploring what’s working and what’s not.
Please share your journey with me by telling me how I can be a resource to you. Answer my 7 Question Survey.
Giveaway: To thank you for completing my survey, I’m giving away one print copy of my Taking Charge of Your Worry E-book. Your survey responses are recorded anonymously. To be entered in the drawing, please leave a comment below, stating: “I did it.” (Winner will be announced on January 18, 2011.)
