The first-foot through the door each year sets the tone for the rest of the year.
There’s an old tradition; they say it comes from Scotland, that the first person through the door each new year’s sets the tone for the rest of that year. Because of that, I wanted this to be my first post for the new year.
If this is your first time reading counselorssoapbox.com, I hope this post will start off your year in a good direction. Longtime readers will know that this blog’s premise is having a happy life.
Life can have it struggles. At some point in their life, everyone is likely to experience a mental, emotional or behavioral issue. Because of this, I write a lot about mental health, mental illness, substance use disorders and overcoming the bumps on the road of life. Here is hoping that this new year will bring happiness to you and yours.
Throughout this year on counselorssoapbox.com I plan to bring you tips about having a happy life, coping with emotional and mental issues and the impact that using and abusing substances might have on your mental and emotional health.
We will also present posts to help you with being a success. However, you define that success. With over 1100 posts on counselorssoapbox.com so far, you’ll find plenty of tips in the past posts with more to come this year. You might even want to consider subscribing to counselorssoapbox.com.
Thanks for being my lucky first-foot this year.
P.S. If it takes you a while to get around to reading this post I will understand. Whenever you get to it, please drop me a line.
