The Celebrity Therapist

My higher power once again showed up this weekend in the
most miraculous way.  I was having a bit
of a meltdown thinking of all the things that I need to take care of in the
next week.  I felt overwhelmed and
stressed and truly my feelings were an accumulation of the last year and a half
when I began to write my book.  No one
had every told me what writing a book entails.  Writing the book is just the beginning. 

 

I have been working on a 7 week audio learning program,
doing publicity for Celebrity Rehab, teleseminars, book signings, workshops,
and at the same time keeping my private practice going.  It is so much more than I could have ever
imagined in time and money to carry the message.  At times, it is actually quite scary.I know they are quality problems, all the same, very stressful.

 

All of a sudden on the Golden Gate Bridge the song “Bridge
over Troubled Waters” came on.  Right
then and there while I was in my melt down right on the bridge. I could not
believe it.  There are certainly no
accidents because as I listened to the lyrics my faith that everything was
going to work out was renewed.  I knew my
higher power was leading the way and all I had to do is stay in the footwork
and get out of the results, as we say in the rooms of 12 step meetings.  These were the words that I needed to hear at
that exact time: 

“Sail on Silver Girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way”

 

Here are the lyrics:

 

When you’re weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all

I’m on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you

I’ll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on Silver Girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine
If you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

 

 

When you’re weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all

I’m on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you

I’ll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on Silver Girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine
If you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
