My word for today’s theme is TRANSFORMATION.

I have heard folks share their suffering about stuttering. I find myself aligning with these folks in that I feel connected to their battles and can identify with the “war stories.”  On the flip side, I have heard folks talk about how their stuttering is a gift. How their stuttering became a catalyst of change during which an internal shift occurred.  Again, I can relate to this experience when I take a step back and examine my life unfolding.  Whether I view these experiences as suffering or as a gift, supportive/mental health/group therapy has been a consonant and therefore the driving force.

How does TRANSFORMATION show up for you?

  1. Liz,
    Powerful word and experience shared Liz. I recall the years that I rarely considered transformation to be part of my world experience. Amazing I look back often to look towards the future and now believe the possibilities that transformation brings.

  2. To know you is to know the true meaning of this word. I believe that our role in mental health shifts the clients perspectives. I sometimes perceive a “role-model” feeling- and one who stutters fabulously 🙂
