I have this amazing therapist who I see weekly. He’s helping me through the grieving process of some major life changes right now. Every week I have homework. Yes. There’s work to do aside from crying, being angry or feeling sorry for myself. I have fully committed to the healing process. What I’ve had in life and who I’ve been, I don’t want that anymore. I believe now more than ever that change starts with me. I don’t want to be who I’ve been. I want off the crazy train….turns out I was driving that thing.
This week I was asked to create a vision for my future. I was very proud of my therapy homework, so I thought I would share. This is a vision of where I’m going….and I’m on my way. I may never get it all right. But at least I’m headed in the right direction. I hope it inspires you to look inside to what’s broken (because we are ALL broken) and begin searching for answers. I promise you, it’s worth it….and so are you!
My clear vision for who I am
I am aware of my feelings and can name them and feel them without denial or delay.
I know what I need and desire and I am powerful and decisive and communicate that effectively.
I quickly recognize when a personal boundary is being violated and I can communicate my needs or remove myself from an unsafe situation with grace and dignity.
I can choose safe people to relationship with and I am prudent around people who are not safe.
I am creative and communicative.
I am trustworthy.
I have a voice.
I am important and I surround myself with people who love and respect me.
I love and nurture my inner child daily, which causes others to want to love and nurture me as well.
I replace lies with truth and I believe the truth about me.
I am powerful, precious, healthy and whole.
I know who I am, what I want and what I’m worth.
I will not settle for less ever again.
