I got a new J-O-B!!

It's official - I've finally landed my first counseling job and I couldn't be more excited!! Since I just graduated with my masters in counseling about three weeks ago, I feel like everything has happened so fast I haven't even had a chance to process everything. Even though I really enjoyed teaching, I'm so excited to be making this career move into counseling where I think I can really make a difference. I've always loved psychology, hearing other people's life stories and journeys because I find those kind of things fascinating -- so needless to say, I think the counseling profession is perfect for me (and now that I think of it, probably why I like blogging so much!)
With that being said, I have already started fantasizing what my office would look like and how I could decorate it (of course) so I wanted to share some of my counseling office ideas. 
All images can be found on my pinterest page.
I love the whole "Keep Calm" idea, especially in a counselors office, so I think sentiment is really cute.
Plus the little couch on the top cracks me up since laying on a couch isn't so much what counseling is all about anymore. Too Freudian for me!
I'd love to also have a zen garden because it's so calming for clients.
Love this organization, the inspirations boards, and the message --
 "do what you love, love what you do"
great inspiring quote by Einstein.
I love how these book ends are both both cork boards and can hold pens/pencils and plants. 
Perfect for a desktop! 
 I think it would be cute to have a bowl of affirmation stones on my desk as daily reminders to myself and others.
 Love the organization (and chevron print) in this office organizer/planner. This will be helpful to stay on top of appointments and other "to-do" items and make them a priority.
 And I actually have this exact print on a magnet on my fridge. I just think it is a beautiful reminder that sometimes when we think our world is over, it's just getting good : )
This sentiment is probably my favorite. This helps remind me that we must truly live in the now and soak in the present moment to be happy : )

I hope everyone is having a peaceful day and remembering to live in the now!
