Hello, it’s so good to be here today on this wonderful platform with you wonderful people. I hope this finds you happy and healthy! I’d like to start today with fortune telling. No, I won’t be telling yours, my crystal ball is in the shop. But so often when we try to tell OUR future we only do so with a negative bias. We only think “that could happen” when we think of negative outcomes. That’s natural, and in some cases healthy. What I want us to work on today is Balanced Fortunetelling. For every negative thing you think could happen, think of one positive thing… That. Could. ALSO. Happen.

That’s great to keep the positive forward. I know you’re dealing with a lot, and well. Didn’t you try some of the techniques we’ve discussed previously?

I've been actively working on this with therapy and my support system and I've gotten so much better looking or trying to look at the brighter side of things!

So all: this exercise isn’t about being positive or looking on the bright side. It being realistic. Be have all fought through and succeeded before. So why can’t we in the future?

Is it similar to the ‘preferred outcome’ that some might do in trauma therapy?

What’s all of our plans this week to take a step forward? I started a new technique with my clients this week, and feel good moving forward. How about all of you?

Post trauma it’s important for us to understand that our language is different. Not better. Not worse. Different. There are pitfalls there but also POWER.
