60 Ways To Make Life Simple Again
When we were young life was easier, right? I know sometimes it seems that way. But the truth is life still is easy. It always will be.

Revenge of the Introvert After ten years as a psychologist practicing psychodynamic psychotherapy , I reclined on the couch of my own analyst feeling burdened by my chosen work. After a day of seeing patients, I was drained. I had been trained to listen at many levels—words, emotions, unconscious disclosures—and I took all of that in and sorted it out in my mind. I was good at helping others discover and pursue what they wanted out of life. But at day's end I had no resources left to do it for myself. Then I heard myself say: "I don't like being a therapist."

Piano Chord Calculator If you are teaching people how to play the piano (or another keyboard instrument) then one thing that you will cover is chords.
