Self-Care Sunday – The Tree of Life
I like to create stuff. I don’t know that I am any good at it, but I enjoy it, so there is that benefit.
After my therapist suggested this activity The Tree of Life, my first thought after seeing the examples was this could be a great art therapy option.
I used different colors and took a little bit of time to cute it up. After that, I told my therapist I had an idea about more Tree of Life art therapy.
write a word
draw a picture
whatever that memory means to you
put that emotion onto the leaf
see it, feel it, own it
then let it fall
you are not what has happened to you
you are a product of it
let what happened in the past go
forgive others if you can
but most of all forgive yourself
