"October is a symphony of permanence and change."

—Bonaro W. Overstreet, author, poet, psychologist

This is my favorite quote about October and the fall season! What a true representation of the world around us and the world within us.

Some examples of permanence and change during the fall season include:

  • School is well underway. Students of all ages understand the routine as they are traveling a road of possibilities.
  • We hear the familiar sounds of cheering from countless soccer and football fans as they renew their love of the game while hoping their favorite team makes the play-offs.
  • The weather begins its’ slow inevitable move towards winter while we enjoy the cooler nights and colorful foliage.
  • TV watchers settle down with anticipation to enjoy their familiar shows with new episodes.

This tends to be the time of year when people take inventory of their personal and professional lives. What is going well, what needs to change, what can be better? We refocus our energies in order to finish the year strong.

The Methodist Healthcare EAP along with the dedicated Methodist Healthcare Web Services team have brought permanence and change to the Methodist EAP Web site. There is great content for employees and employers as well as valuable resources for you and your family.

We invite you to explore the new Web site and see the same EAP you have come to rely upon and the wonderful additions that will serve you more effectively in the future. Let us know what you think in the comments section. We'd love to hear your feedback!

It turns out that the Methodist EAP also has a story to tell. We are in this together—with our clients, our businesses, our families and our community. Thank you for being such an important part of our story of permanence and change.
