Reflect On Your Secrets

Today I have been working through some personal thoughts and created this layout.
It is called 'Top Secret'. 
It is a reflective piece based on being a support worker in the Mental Health Care field. When working in the care industry you must find a way to lock away information in your mind that relates to the people you help support. Being careful not to share this with anyone but those who need to know is so vital. I found myself picturing a portion of my mind that needs to stay secure.

Tapping into thoughts to create layouts can be a real Inspiration and therapeutic too x

Some quotes About Health...

Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. They come to us now knowing this truth. We are at our best when they give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work. ~Albert Schweitzer

Life is like a tree and its root is consciousness. Therefore, once we tend the root, the tree as a whole will be healthy. ~Deepak Chopra

Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;... and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man. ~James H. West
