23 Oct

I’m currently two weeks into a six week therapy assessment to see which type of therapy is right for me. During this time my therapist asked me to think of something that signifies hope growing over the period. We talked about a plant but I knew I’d kill it (not exactly green fingered) and then maybe something like a circle that was added to to make a swirl by the end. Anyway it turned out my homework was for me to think of something. 

One night I was feeling pretty low and put my ‘dark’ music on that makes me feel anger and hatred and that’s when I decided to do a hope playlist. My therapist loved the idea and I’ve been thinking ever since. Here is my list so far, what would be on your list?
