As the new Executive Director for the Better Brain Center, I’ve had the privilege of learning about this fascinating field from incredible therapist and technicians. I’m truly thankful for this experience, and look forward to bringing greater awareness to the benefits of neurofeedback.
Let me add a few more things I’m thankful for in no particular order.
- My son asking me to help him shave this month for the first time.
- My wife learning how to argue with me and call me on my … (you know what).
- Though my mom is suffering from Alzheimer’s, she is still here and still giving good hugs.
- Getting create our new killer web site and refurbish and expand our Alexandria office.
- Playing music with some of the most talented musicians in Baltimore this year.
- Staff for putting out all those fires.
- My father’s laugh, still one of my all-time favorites.
- YouTube for teaching me better cooking techniques.
- Staff who care as much as they do about healing those with mental and physical illness.
- Audiobooks, or I don’t know how I’d survive my two-hour commute to DC and Virginia.
- My inversion table – nothing feels better than spinal decompression at the end of the day.
- Top down Jeep-ing, because life without a convertible makes me sad.
- Childhood friends becoming mid-life adult friends.
- Teams of people who help make the work I do a success.
This was actually harder than it looked. It takes a bit of energy to come up with more than a handful of things to truly be thankful for. And it’s a worthy exercise. I’ll just add two more.
Thank you to all those who follow me and the folks at The Better Brain Center, and for all your support.
And thank you to my step-sister for hosting Thanksgiving every year … and not making me clean it all up.
