Using Practices to Survive

I recently met with a client who is working her ass off to stay alive. What does the mean? It means she is using all the practices that she knows of, not to thrive, but to keep herself from killing herself.

These are the clients that remind me where i've been. I remember. And I remember the journey of re-membering.

While with her I recalled a time from my darkest days when I did a very simple gratitude practice. It wasn't a rainbows and unicorn gratitude practice like, "be grateful for everything you have!" and then you list a bunch of stuff/things.
