I have been thinking about how my life is a the moment. After a fairly stressful week I decided to do a sort of "Mind Map" See file above. We had a chat about this. I was amazed at how complicated it looks! I wonder if when we hit some catastrophic moment in our lives, all of our problems hit us. Looking at my mind map and seeing all the things going on it's no wonder life can become overwhelming! I talked about how I used the results of the "Wheel of Emotions", which is on the Tasks Page, when I discovered how much I worry and feel guilty about things. Looking at my Mind Mad not much has changed. However, I am trying to change my thinking habits and make a note of the words I say to myself. So things are improving and I have got some Happy things going on!
At group we talked about our current difficulties and how taking control of them can be hard. Sometimes writing things down can give us a different perspective on what is going on. Stopping us filtering out the positive things, because we are only capturing the negative. With this is mind lets see how the coming week unfolds.
