Random Morning Thoughts

I wasn’t planning on writing a forecast today, and I was even less planning on writing a reflection. So, I’ll let you go with just a bunch of chilly, sunny weather. Have an awesome day!

Disclaimer required by my grad school program: I am not your therapist, but I am seeing clients at this time. In the meantime, I am your weather forecaster. Take everything I say with a grain of salt, and consult with your actual therapist about your mental health issues. One other thing: I plan to keep doing this forecast indefinitely, even when I am a therapist.
