Questions for the Self

This week, I encourage you to ask yourself these questions:

  • What do you most want to change? 

  • What do you think you could easily do differently...and what's stopping you? 

  • What does freedom mean to you? 

  • And what do you need to put into place to achieve it? 

  • Who are your supports? 

  • How can you utilize them more than you are currently? 
  • What are your most toxic elements in life? 

  • How can you better distance yourself from them? 

I really invite you to have a conversation with yourself, even write down your responses to form new goals and plans, and to envision a better year. Later on in the week, I will delve into these questions in more detail, but before they can be discussed, pondered, and used for reflection and re-framing, you first need to ask them. So start... and I will follow up with some food for thought. 

These questions were meant to be the topic of this week's Wednesday Warrior video, but due to some overwhelming time constraints, I haven't been able to film a video in time to have it up for Wednesday. You'll either get a video a few days late (hate to do that - I'm always on time!) or a detailed blog post on this topic (these important questions) by the weekend. Either way, don't pass them off as too general, too basic, or too silly. Far too often, we forget to ask ourselves the really important things, the things that shape recovery and LIFE.

Hey Arielle,

I've just found your site,
I'm Ruby and I have anorexia/bulimia and am also a recovering heroin addict.
This summer I have dipped my toe in to recovery and really want to continue the positive changes I've made.
I started writing a blog recently and it is becoming more and more a recovery blog.

I'm so glad to have found your site and I'll look forward to reading more x
