Looking for a pot of gold on St Patrick’s Day? I hope you get one, but if you don’t, this story might make you laugh. I’m an Irish girl so years ago, I asked St Patrick for a nice Leprechaun to deliver a pot of gold to my door.
On my way home from work that day I saw a double rainbow arching over our neighborhood! Feeling lucky, I pulled my car over to admire it, and at that precise moment, a friend called to say he made big pot of potato soup and dropped it off outside our door!
I told him about my request and wondered if this was the luck of the Irish paying off? He laughed and said “ Well… I did use a lot of golden potatoes in that soup –Does that count? “ I decided it did! After all, finding the humor and being grateful is all part of the Luck of the Irish.
Sometimes you ask for a pot of gold, and you get a pot of potatoes... Even so, seeing a double rainbow and having a friend deliver a pot of homemade soup to your door is still something to be grateful for!
If you are feeling depressed or overwhelmed with life, it can seem impossible to feel grateful or take pleasure in simple things. If that's how you are feeling, I'd love to help you with this.

I loved this message on my teabag - Let your energy be used to build, not destroy! I think this is timely advice considering the level of anger and polarization in our world today. What are you investing your energy in right now? Does it build relationships, support community and uplift the world around you? Or, are you using your energy to criticize and tear others down?
What's happening in the world inside of you? Are you using your energy to build self esteem. Are you extending Loving Kindness to yourself, or are you slowly eroding your self esteem with perfectionism and self judgement?
Love builds, hate destroys. Practicing Loving Kindness for yourself and others builds a bridge that allows us to transition from hatred to love. Our world needs more of that energy today!
If you are struggling with low self esteem and self judgment towards yourself, I’d love to help you with this. Please visit my Services page to learn more about online counseling in Florida with me. Please click on my Blog to read continue reading other posts.

I’ve always loved the word Delight! To me it means “of the light” and with all the darkness and fear in the world today, I wanted to create a place where we can gather together, restore our connection to the light and help one another to Delight The World with love, kindness, gentleness, beauty, compassion and grace. —Amy Rose, LCSW
