It is week five of the tree of life.
My tree has become taller, and I'm now working on the floor!
I have stuck leaves on the branches.
I now need more fruits and flowers.
On the last week, there will be some 'tree dancing'(!) and
maybe even some tree hugging?
The group has become quite friendly!
I tend to take the bad stuff to heart- it's good to be reminded
of the support that I've had over the years.
In my tree the
hopes dreams wishes
I want to change, but need to take
and break down
my goals to smaller ones
This means- I don't feel down- if don't get job
I don't take it personally
Hopefully, small goals will
lead to bigger goals
With depression you tend to
people feed us
Consider how have we changed?
what positive memories do we have?
On the last day, there will be a
movement and a mental health session-
to bring tree to life
In a soothing way-
a dancing tree!?
