New Direction

Updated: Jan 9

If you are new here, WELCOME! If not, you may have noticed some recent changes.


Work in Progress


In the same manner that the Grateful Gwen Channel on YouTube was replaced with the Grateful Gwen Good Reads Channel which provides a more singular focus and purpose; this former "Spiritual Journey" blog is also being renovated as "Counselor Confessions" providing a more specialized purpose based on one of my areas of experience and expertise.


Originally the former YouTube channel contained an eclectic collection (like my music playlists) of preferred hobbies such as Off-Roading in my former Jeep, Yoga, Pilates, Favorite Books, Prayer and Meditation, etc.


Although I was able to build it to a level of becoming "monetized" with all the promised benefits of offering special membership access, perks, and badges, it earned zero dollars in profits and even less interest in the varied content which was essentially the "All About Me" attention-seeking, flying solo, ego-driven show.


This blogsite over the years has also essentially been a personal diary of my successes, struggles, and life lessons learned along the way. Not that there is anything inherently wrong with that, as it can be quite therapeutic for the blogger. But it didn't appear to be serving you, which is my purpose in this Beautiful Love God Love People Life I have been so freely given. One of the powerful lessons learned is that it is equally therapeutic for me to write in a private journal and not necessary to publish it for public validation. Experiencing precious mindful moments without the need to photograph or post about it feels liberating, calming, authentic, and restorative providing a peace and contentment which passes understanding.



If I can assist you in some way as a professional counselor, please reach out and let me know.

Growth Mindset is where it's at for me these days, so I am continuously seeking opportunities to learn, expand, and improve my knowledge, skills, and experience.


If you are struggling with the hardships of life on life's terms, I am a professional listener, caring empath, and want to encourage you to hang in there! Don't give up!


In a previous post I included the 988 phone number you may call or text 24 hours a day 7 days a week for assistance in the USA. Other countries also provide suicide prevention hotlines if you are in need of such support.


One of my gifts is helping you find a reason to continue on living should you choose not to leave before the miracle happens!


Ultimately the choice is always yours.


May you be safe. May you be loved. May you be at peace today.
