I found this cute art therapy activity on Pinterest, from Emerly Arts, and decided to create my own version to share.
The exercise can be used during a time of transformation, or just to help make sense of your past vs present self.
Trace your hands and fill them with images that represent your past (left hand) and what your future hopes are (right hand.)
Here are my hands…
I found the activity very healing given the huge changes going on in my life; motherhood is a huge transformation that redefines who we are, and what we hope for the future. As you can see from above, some drastic changes in my life have/are taking place and I enjoyed expressing them in my journal.
