Hello and welcome to Soul Gatherings!
I’m Theresa – an Optometrist turned Licensed Professional Counselor turned blogger, who loves to read, write, volunteer and travel. Did I mention that I happen to love incidents that showcase the triumph of the human spirit? In my life, I have met so very many people who have inspired me, lifted me up when I was down, pointed me in the right direction while I was without a compass and made a positive difference in my life. They touched my heart in some way, and for that I am grateful beyond words.
In my evolution from an Optometrist who helped people to see with their eyes to a psychotherapist who helps people see through the eyes of their hearts, I have been inspired by meeting ordinary people with extraordinary offerings. I hope that these random reflections about people I’ve met and places I’ve been will touch your heart as well, and remind you that often, we entertain angels unaware. Their spirits shine, and when touched by their light, we cannot help but be changed by the experience; we cannot help but know that we are never alone on this life journey.
These are their stories, my stories, your stories – whether I’ve “co-journeyed” with these folks for a time in person, or was somehow touched by their writings in a book so much so that I want to share their wisdom with others. Along the way, I’ll include my thoughts about getting through life when it’s not going at all like we planned. Plus, some lessons (painfully) learned on how to truly become better at transforming into a human being, and not a human doing. I am indeed a work in progress.
I almost forgot – did I mention that I happen to love quotes? Once again, a source of inspiration, wisdom and peace for me. I hope to pass on to you the ones that have spoken to me; perhaps they will resonate with you as well when you most need it. Life is like that – there’s a reason for everything…nothing is random…we are all interconnected.
My thanks for being a part of this soul gathering.
