My Living Well Homework

Just got back from the Living Well cancer support group. Our assignment last week was to record three good things that went well during the last week and then think about why these good things happened. The lesson here is ....if you open yourself up to the world and take some risk, good things do happen.

This week’s assignment is to look at your own virtues and character strengths. We were given a list of 24 good qualities to possess. We are to consider what we think would be our top five strengths or ... our signature strengths. We are then supposed to try and think of a new way to use one of these strengths during the week. For example, if kindness is one of your strengths ... try and find a new way to be kind during the week.

This is gonna be interesting ...

What a great exercise. I think we spend too much time beating ourselves up for the things that we aren't or the things that we fail to do instead of focusing on the positive contributions that we make.

The world would be a better place if we spent less time judging ourselves and others, and giving each other the benefit of the doubt.

You can do this Daria.

What a great idea Daria. Seems to me it will also contribute to getting in touch with your feelings and help with staying positive.

So, I'm supposed to find more ways to be sarcastic this week?

(Sarcasm is a good thing, right?)
