End Year Pep Talk from Gabby Cares


Gabby Cares

As the year draws to a close, I want to take a moment to reach out to you, not just as a therapist, but as someone who genuinely cares about your journey. This isn't just a blog post; consider it a love letter of the end year from Gabby Cares to your resilience, a testament to your strength, and a celebration of the person you are becoming.

As you sit with this letter, perhaps with a warm cup of tea or nestled in your favorite spot, I want you to reflect on the resilience you've shown this year. Think about those days that felt insurmountable, those moments when you felt tested beyond your limits. Yet, here you are, reading this, having made it through. That's not a mere coincidence; it's a display of your extraordinary strength, a quality that perhaps you don't acknowledge often enough.

Now, let's shift our focus to your victories – both big and small. It's easy to overlook the small wins, the everyday triumphs, but they are the very essence of our daily lives. That morning you chose to face the world with a smile, the time you were there for a friend, the evenings you dedicated to self-care – these are the moments that truly define your year. They might not make headlines, but in these actions, your character shines brightest.

And yes, there were lows – moments and days that perhaps you wish you could erase. But even in these times, there was growth. With each challenge, you learned a little more about yourself, your needs, and your boundaries. You discovered strengths you didn't know you had and resilience that surprised even yourself. Each setback, each moment of doubt, was a stepping stone, leading you to a stronger, more self-aware version of yourself.

Your mental health journey this year has been nothing short of powerful. Whether you've taken significant strides or small steps, every effort towards betterment is commendable. Mental health is not a destination but a continuous journey, and every step forward, no matter how small, is a step towards a more balanced, peaceful you.

End year planning

As we look towards the new year, let’s set intentions with kindness. Aim to be kinder to yourself, celebrate the small joys, and continue nurturing your mental health. These intentions are not just wishes; they're commitments to yourself, promises to prioritize your well-being. And in all this, never forget that you are enough. You don't need to prove your worth to anyone. You don't need to be more or do more to be valuable. Your worth is inherent, and as you step into the new year, embrace this truth wholeheartedly.

Before I sign off, I want to remind you to take moments to pause – to appreciate the beauty around you and to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. These pauses are not just breaks; they are opportunities to recharge, find joy in the mundane, and remind yourself of the beauty of existence.

Remember that your journey is unique and it's yours to embrace. You are not just surviving; you're thriving in your way. Here’s to your strength, your growth, and your journey. The new year is an unwritten chapter and it's waiting for you to fill its pages with your unique light and color. I can’t wait to see you in therapy next year!

With warmth and admiration,

Dr. Gabby-Carey Johnson
