Do you ever feel like you’re too busy existing to actually live? That days turn into weeks and weeks become months and before you know it, another year has gone by? It can be difficult for anyone to stop and take a breath every once in a while, juggling work, school, family, (therapy) and everything in between— constantly feeling like you’re being pulled in every direction and unable to just stand still. It doesn’t have to be this way. And today, well, today that changes. Today you’ve decided to make a commitment to yourself. You’ve decided to join us on the journey of building a meaningful life. You are officially on your way to a Life Worth Living.
Therapeutic Oasis invites you to join the Life Worth Living philosophy. Rooted in DBT and Mindfulness, it is the belief that when we begin to see ourselves as lovable and worthy beings, we can discover how this love and worth can manifest within ourselves, our relationships, and the world. Similar to the uniqueness of our fingerprints, a Life Worth Living is specific to each person. When our lives are in alignment with this philosophy and choose to embrace our Wise Mind, a path unfolds before us filled with an abundance of ideas, opportunities, and choices.
Therapeutic Oasis will deliver 52 weeks of weekly inspiration –straight to your inbox -to help guide you on your journey. Following the four modules of DBT, each week will offer you tips, skills, activities and concepts in the following categories:
Family and DBT
We encourage you to reflect on each week’s message, allowing it to refresh something you have learned or inspire you to learn more on how this skill can be applied to your present life (not the past). Perhaps setting an intention to apply it in a way that is in alignment with your goals and ultimately helping you create a Life Worth Living.
Some general guidelines to follow when using the weekly tips:
- Read each quote or passage and pause, allowing the words and images to give rise to any personal meaning.
- Consider keeping a companion journal. Journal with simple bullet points or a complete a journal entry after you take time to pause and reflect.
- If a particular quote or prompt is unwise or conflicts with your personal goals, simply note it and return to a previous week for further practice and reflection.
We hope you enjoy this journey. If you have any comments, suggestions, or feedback, please feel free to email us at LWLblog@therapeuticoasis.com
