Life is complicated. Just when we think everything is going smoothly, it throws us a curve ball. Whether it’s at school, work, with a friend or family member, or in a romantic relationship, something always seems to come up that can send us into turmoil.

Unfortunately, we don’t get a “coping with life” class in high school. We’re expected to just pick up the skills and techniques for best coping with life on our own, through “life experience” itself.

Sometimes this works. Sometimes it doesn’t (as in the case of alcoholism, emotional eating, etc.).

So it’s my pleasure to introduce Life Happens — a blog about dealing with life on life’s terms. It’s about finding a way to make lemonade out of lemons, even when you feel you’re all out of sugar.

“I hope that Life Happens will educate, inform, inspire, and transform — leaving readers feeling empowered and ready to deal with life as it happens,” says Donna White about her new blog.

Donna M. White began her counseling career after receiving her BS in Psychology in 2004 and her MA in Clinical Counseling in 2007. She is a practicing clinician and has worked in community mental health, alternative schools, chemical dependency, and vocational rehabilitation settings. You can learn more about here here.

Please give Donna a warm Psych Central welcome!
