  2. I discovered your blog site on google and examine just a few of your early posts. Continue to maintain up the excellent operate. I just further up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. Searching for ahead to reading more from you later on!…

  3. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say superb blog!

    • The very heart of your writing while apiaerpng reasonable at first, did not settle perfectly with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually managed to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have a problem with your leaps in logic and one might do well to help fill in those breaks. In the event that you can accomplish that, I will undoubtedly end up being fascinated.

    • Hello Freshouse,
      You’re not boring, I didn’t skip over you as you can see, and I’m glad I was able to clear some things up for you. Though, I would be interested in finding out what those “things” might be.

      • Greetings from California! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your weisbte on my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, very good site!

  4. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    • No apologies necessary. I’d be happy to give you my opinion. I would not recommend working with drupal as I have worked with that in the past and will not bore you with all the reasons not to use–wordpress is what I would recommend and is what this platform is. If I can be of any further help please feel free to reach out again.

    • With havin so much written conentt do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique conentt I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help reduce conentt from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

      • Good question–not much you can do to keep people from “stealing” your content. You can hire a team of lawyers and internet professionals to constantly “urge” people to remove your content; you can copyright your content and again hire attorneys to threaten litigation, but those cost $$$$. Most people don’t have the resources for that. Even if you have a block put on your content to where others can’t easily copy and paste, “they” can still find a work around for that. If somebody wants your stuff bad enough they will find a way to get it. Bottom line: If you don’t want it stolen, don’t put it on the internet, otherwise you will just have to live with it. I come from the mindset of–Imitation is the best form of flattery. It is a high-cost cat and mouse game even aside from the $$$–The real question is, what is your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health worth to you regarding trying to protect your content. If it’s worth it to you to “lock it up” than you will have to pay a price for that in some way. I wish I could tell you that you can just flip a switch or push a button and it would be solved, but…

  5. GabnGH You can definitely see your enthusiasm in the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. Always go after your heart.

    • The short and sweet answer would be to just write! There is no “write or wrong”… Write what you know, write authentically, write from the heart, write what you like, write what you don’t like, write to have a voice, etc. Everybody has a story to tell and a story to live! If you’ve got something to say–well then–say it, unabashedly! As much as you blog for others–you ultimately will blog/write for yourself, and believe it or not, it can also be “therapeutic” for you, as the writer. Dare I say, liberating… Happy Blogging!

  6. Excellent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous
    to and you are just extremely great. I actually like what you have acquired here, really

    create a killer title? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid, however suppose you
    added a title to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean ASK ERIC
    | Optimum Counselor is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s
    home page and see how they create post titles to get people
    interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people interested about everything’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.

  30. Thanks , I have recently been looking for information approximately this topic
    for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve found out so far.
    However, what about the conclusion? Are you certain in regards to the supply?

  31. Get lots of carbs, protein, and healthy fats with each meal.

    But if you are serious about slimming down and achieving our bodies that they have
    always wanted, than the program may be the prefect solution. Sleep deprivation can also be associated
    with several medical conditions, including heart problems.

  32. Once the body gets rid with the long staying waste or toxins, it’s actually a
    lot easier for our bodies to do its process in shedding pounds.
    It basically comes down to being determined and yes it’s just a matter of obtaining the courage to look from the
    way and make change within your daily routine. This will subsequently
    result in the food to advance too fast with the small intestine and hence
    this will likely prevent the absorption with the nutrients and also the calories in one’s body.

  33. It is known as a powerhouse as it can produce numerous nutrients essential for your body’s normal functioning.
    The more salt consume, greater the body retains water to dilute it.
    It’s not as simple as checking the label and searching for sugar.

  34. Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make
    my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks a lot

  35. The most folks available simply do not have two freezers, an unfinished basement to convert with a
    home fitness space or unlimited hours within the day to pursue their weight-loss neither did
    we. If you do not know this, carbohydrates actually transforms into sugar once it’s
    going into the body. Also, do not get confused that hunger is definitely thirst.

  36. You can definitely see your skills in the work you write.

    The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how
    they believe. Always go after your heart.

    • You know it–there are risks in everything, and it is our fears that don’t allow us to show who we are or become who we are meant to be! Many things in life may seem “wrong” to ourselves and others, but our hearts never lie… Thanks for reading and your kind words!

  37. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation however I to find this matter
    to be really something that I think I would by no means understand.

    It seems too complicated and very huge for me.
    I’m taking a look ahead in your next put up, I will try to get the
    cling of it!

    you happen to be a great author.I will remember to bookmark your blog and may come back someday.
    I want to encourage that you continue your great job, have
    a nice afternoon!

  39. indeed, research is paying off. Great thoughts you possess here.. Particularly advantageous viewpoint, many thanks for blogging.. Good opinions you have here..

  40. First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your mind before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my
    thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Many thanks!

    • Thanks so much for your Kudos! Everyone has their own way of doing things, of course, and I’m sure you’ll find yours, but here’s mine… Believe it or not, I really don’t have a rhyme or reason to how or what I write other than when I have a topic that seems to be surfacing within me that my clients or patients are dealing with, something that gets to me as a trending topic/pattern or something within my own being has to get “purged out/released”–then I write. The “centering or clearing” as you put it, comes from the releasing of the information or ideas I express in written form. I don’t clear my mind at all pre-writing–it is my writing that actually does the clearing. Plainly stated–most of the time I wouldn’t have anything to write about if I was centered and cleared. Call it “therapeutic writing” if you will. A big part of my driving force is that I’m partial to the injustices, nonsensical, unnecessary convoluted complexities of the world dovetailed with the constant pursuit of personal and other’s lifetime processing of self-actualization. In other words, I’m a lifetime inquisitive learner always asking questions and seeking “answers” in whatever form they may present themselves. My prose simply comes from my personality as I know I don’t like to read something boring–so I try to put a little flare or humor in the writing recipe too. Bottom line is to just write and “correct” what you have written later. Get it “on paper”, then worry about the details later to finesse everything to your liking. Don’t try so hard–there is no right or wrong in writing–everyone has a story and everyone has a style–just tell YOU from the heart and it will take care of itself and begin to flow like water in a brook. Don’t get caught up in the paralysis by analysis or perfection over progress distorted thinking–you will stay “write” where you are and not propel forward in your writing if you succumb to this line of “stinkin’ thinkin’ Just write! We all get better over time by doing–not by merely thinking about the doing. I am certainly well aware of my being verbose at times which I know my editorial skills could use some polishing for conciseness and brevity–but again–that’s me. Thanks so much for the question! Hope this might trigger some personal insight for you!

    • I’m working on a book, but most often I must give credit to others before me…”as to the reason I am able to see far, it is due to the fact I stand on the shoulders of giants”.
