“Have you ever thought about your motto on life? Maybe it’s a saying that captures your purpose or your mission. Or maybe it’s a string of words, a collection of passages or even a poem that inspires your actions.
We asked several clinicians to describe their mottos. Perhaps their tenets will stir you to take the time to think about the words you’d like to live by.
Joyce Marter, LCPC, psychotherapist and owner of Urban Balance, LLC:
In life, we are all dealt a different hand of hardships and blessings. We each have a unique life experience that will help us learn, grow and develop emotionally, relationally and spiritually. We must each honor our personal life history to gain awareness of how our earlier experiences have shaped and molded us into who we are today.”
