Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God Philippians 1:3
Today’s thought is about my old friend, Viktor Frankl. He developed the concept of “logotherapy”, the concept of therapy that delves into one’s meaning for living in order to find healing. Frankl believed that the healing thing for humans is to get in touch with the things which give their life meaning. I believe that he bridged that gap in the psychoanalytic theory that brought people to the idea of living out the things that were deep in their soul.
Rather than just go into our childhood and ferret out those things which contributed to our broken thinking, Frankl challenged people to find why they were put on planet earth in the first place. I think his perspective was one of the first to say in therapy, essentially, in my interpretation- “it’s not all about you pal, how are you going to impact your fellow human beings? In doing so, you will find the answer to your problems.”
I like it!
So, on another topic…
I have been writing daily reflections every day since April 1, 2020. Prior to that, I had written on this blog very irregularly (yeah, almost never).
I have enjoyed this process, which has become one of my daily disciplines. It has helped me to deal with this COVID-19 mess, and I thank you for hanging with me in this, and the encouragement you have given.
I have just been counting on my own musings and experience to come up with topics for the day. I began to think that it was time for some feedback. What do YOU want me to write about? If there is a topic that you would like me to discuss, I would be happy to try to tackle it.
So, send me your thoughts. I cannot guarantee that I will cover every idea presented, but I will make an effort to cover every idea that is submitted..
Thank you so much for the regular comments and “Facebook likes” that so many of you have given. Those put oxygen in my tank! 😊
Prayer: Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God, Amen
