From Dr. Jane's Notebook

Self Development: A lifelong process

If nothing else, the past year has reminded us that there is nothing so certain as change. The advent of 9/11 brought out the best in some people and revealed the worst in others. Not too many years ago, we thought the answer to protecting ourselves was pepper spray and mace. City people invested in the “club”, a device to prevent their cars from being stolen. But today, we need resources that are even more powerful. As such, this article will offer another set of tools for your belt to help prepare you for whatever may lie ahead.

In the  words of Bob Dylan:

May your hands always be busy, May your feet always be swift;

May you have a strong foundation; When the winds of changes shift.

May your heart always be joyful; May your song always be sung and

May you stay forever young.

It has been my pleasure to write this column since October 1986. Many thanks to those who have read “From Dr. Jane’s Notebook”, special thanks to Post editor, Betsy Seale, and extra special thanks to my husband, Gary, who has pre-edited each of these columns over the past 16 years. Life is a continuous process of change and perhaps the greatest challenge is the challenge to know when  to move on.
