Summertime

Since we are in the official season of summer, I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to the warmer weather and longer days. Yes, longer days where I can do chores in the morning, meet up with friends for brunch at noon, then head up to Lake Sebago to launch my boat and be back home in time for karaoke while it’s still light out. Isn’t summer amazing? It makes you almost forget about the dismal darkness of winter. I am excited about great summer fun hiking in the Finger Lakes and picnicking on any lake that Orange County, New York, offers. I am not fond of exploring the Ocean, so I’ll skip the salt and sand to explore the Poconos mountain instead. I have wanted to go to the Poconos in Pennsylvania, and I think I might have to get up and go as I have been planning for years, and it still hasn’t happened. I’m sure many of you, like me, appreciate all of what summer has to offer.

Though summer is my third favorite season right after spring and fall ( for the colors and the smell of spices). I love the long days to provide me with more opportunities to explore. This past weekend was about family. It’s a gift to be able to hang out with your loved ones. Even though  I don’t celebrate Hallmark holidays, this past father’s day weekend I father’s day weekend, I was fortunate to spend time with my younger sister drinking beer and singing karaoke.

Fortunately for me, my moods have significantly improved over the summer over the summer; I feel a lot more adventurous, accomplished, and energetic during the summer season. During the summertime, I wear my brightest color dresses and explore all that nature has to offers. With that said, sheers to SUMMER!

I am Carrie; I love traveling and performing activities that soothe and enrich my mind. I have a solid background in the mental health field. I attend to mental health issues from a raw and unconventional point of view. If it has to do with mental health, I want to discuss it, not the cliché' stance that society has on mental health but the unseen, uncut ways of addressing how our lifestyle influences/affects our mental growth. I love the approach of assessing someone holistically/from the biopsychosocial approach rather than pathologizing simple differences, as this approach creates a positive impact on our wellbeing. My goal is also to highlight that exposure to nature makes you feel better emotionally and contributes to your physical wellbeing.
