The exercise the group is currently working on is a simple one, but far more difficult than I initially thought it would be. The idea is to create a vision for your life, in any aspects that you can imagine. To sit back and picture what values you used to have that drove your life and how you want to use those values in the future, how you want to put little things into practice to make your life the life you want. I've written a lot down about it, but keep going back and revising as I think more about who I am and what I want. It's the most liberating feeling--ever since D and I both started down this recovery road, I've been focusing on and off (or rather, trying to focus on, then forgetting, slipping, etc. and then trying to remember to focus) on the idea of "what I want." As the world's biggest people pleaser, this has never been easy, but writing it out this way is pretty empowering. It makes me feel much more directed and motivated and ready to tackle myself again.
