Kristin Melton - Top 15

1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
Absolutely! What word could be more positive? I love to hear it, and I love to say it. Nothing could be more personally affirming, encouraging, or uplifting. It's even almost impossible to say it without enthusiastic voice inflection. Try it, and you'll see, that it's absolutely true.

2.How would you describe your husband?
Ah... guilty pleasures. Sunday night is always reserved for TV watching with my hubby. We have too many HBO and Showtime favorites to list. However, I've come to realize that our TV time isn't really about the program -- it's my favorite because I'm spending time with him.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
Always feeling as if I have to figure out why something happens, or trying to derive a lesson out of different events in my life. I guess its my introspective gift. Even though it irritates me inside sometimes, I realize its what makes me a great therapist and change agent.

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly." I have this quote on the wall of my counseling office because I love sharing this message. I believe we all can go through dark times, but surviving those trials can create a resilient, beautiful, self transformation.

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
It's Friday! In the fall, winter, and spring, I use this day to catch up on things, relax, or even write a blog post or two. In the summer through, Fridays are always about the two special girls in my life -- swimming, shopping, outings, or just enjoying each other's company.
