Broaden Your Beam of Light

This morning, I was out running around 5:30 a.m.—it’s dark in the country. I wear a headlamp as the days are shorter and I need the light on the road to guide me.

I don’t wear headphones so as to not dampen my senses at this wee hour.  As you can imagine, with nothing to distract my mind, I quickly began envisioning been attacked by a pack of coyotes or being trampled by deer or sprayed by an unsuspecting and grouchy skunk.  My imagination ran wild until I was at the point of no return—that distance where turning back doesn’t make sense anymore and you just have to keep going.

I finally settled in and it was just the crunch of the rock beneath my feet and the bounce of my beam of light.  I starting thinking about how narrow the view is when only seeing the world that is revealed by the beam.  Then I started thinking about bias and how our bias is like this beam providing us only a narrow view of the world, and our own lives.  Each of us is at risk of only seeing what is visible in the beam immediately ahead of us.  In order to have a fuller and richer perspective, we need to challenge our bias, look around, and broaden our exposure.

It’s important we honestly look at ourselves and our views. We should question ourselves. What narrow views are we holding that do not serve us?  What can we do to broaden our beam of light?  Challenge yourself this week to see the big picture and embrace the light from all directions.

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

As of January 18, 2023, Grant Blackford Mental Health and Family Services Society, two organizations that merged in April 2022, rebranded under the unified name Radiant Health.

We’re excited for you to meet the new us, and to get a chance to help work together on the new you.

How we help.

When you’re in the middle of it, addiction can feel like a dead-end road. We know for certain that it isn’t. Just like any mental health challenge, addiction is an obstacle on our path. And, with some innovation and hardwork, we can work our way around it. On the other side of that obstacle is a bright future with healthy relationships, purpose-driven life, and a profound joy that’s been missing for all too long.

What do we mean?

Like so many things, mental health is passed down through families. Through behaviors, mirroring, and conditioning, we learn so much of what we know from those closest to us. Oftentimes that’s for the better, sometimes it’s not. At Radiant Health, we’re here to help ensure that your family makes purpose and joy as hereditary as any trait you might pass down to future generations. With a bit of hard word, together, we can make joy run in your family. 

What is Better?

Better ≠ perfect. Better means a path of continuous improvement; of evolution. When we focus on getting 1% better, 1% brighter every single day., we’re able to see the joy in the moment, while feeling the pride that comes with taking the reins over your life and working hard on yourself.  Here at Radiant, to focus on your future, we move towards it one achievable step at a time. 

What is Better Care?

When we talk about “brighter, better care” through our specialized services it boils down to 3 simple ideas. First, better care is safer care. Our facilities and staff are trained and equipped to offer safe, secure facilities during any stay. Second, better care is a respect for dignity. We believe in the dignity of every human being and we treat each person with the same level of respect. Finally, better care is the pursuit of purpose. Our treatment is designed with the firm belief that every person has purpose and, through it, finds joy.

What to Expect?

At Radiant Health you can expect a warmth and cheer that are rare in the mental health space. We believe firmly that the commitment to mental health is a commitment to finding purpose, but also discovering joy in the pursuit of it. Walking through our doors is a simple and transparent process. You’ll begin with an initial consultation with our expert staff, developing a blueprint, and taking that first step towards incremental improvement.
