Out Came The Sun

Oscar nominated actress Mariel Hemingway, granddaughter of famous writer Earnest Hemingway, released a book today called ‘Out Came The Sun’ that tells her story about growing up in a family with history for mental illness, suicide and addiction http://newsok.com/mariel-hemingway-shares-story-at-oklahoma-city-event-releases-new-memoirs-today/article/5408141

Mariel says sharing her story with others has been very helpful to her in the process of healing, learning and growing from some of the painful experiences she and her family went through.

Foundations counselor Lori Corrigan had the opportunity to meet Ms. Hemingway at last month’s American Counseling Association’s annual conference where Mariel was keynote speaker.

At Foundations we agree that telling your story can be a powerful way to bring about peace, acceptance, awareness and hope to your life and the lives of others.

Live Your Best Life

The only thing we can control in life is us. It is not what happens to us, per se, that shapes the very fabric of our lives, it is the way we respond, or in some cases react, to what has happened.

Life is a gift filled with wonder and opportunity, but with the gift of life also comes challenges.

That being said, there are many things we can do as individuals to lead healthier, happier lives. At the top of that list, is good self care including regular exercise, healthy nutrition and learning to live in the present moment of life verses focusing on the past or the future.
