I plant the seeds: week one

the artist\'s way creative cluster

This is Week One: Recovering A Sense of Safety. We will work with changing negative beliefs into positive affirmations, from Monday June 9th to Sunday June 15th 2008.

* daily morning pages [non-negotiable]
* artist’s date [non-negotiable]

* list three old enemies of your self-worth. [why?]
* select and write out one story from your history with these enemies.
* write a letter to the editor in your defense. Mail it to yourself if you like.

* list three old champions of your self worth. [compliments they gave?]
* Select and write out one happy piece of encouragement. Write a thank you letter and mail it to yourself or your lost mentor.

* if you had five other lives to lead, what would you do in each of them? Pick one and live it this week, creatively.

* add any other negative people or incidents to your list as you think of them. Take each negative and turn it into a positive affirmation.

* take your artist for a 20 minute walk.

I write, as openly as possible, about my experiences with life, love, creativity, depression and not-depression. I share opinions. I promote compassion and change. I talk about music. I also write poetry and short stories. I like to share them here.
