Join Adrienne as she discusses writing exercises that encourage and support you to stay in touch with who you are and what you want. As you learn and practice using writing as a vehicle to take you out of your current environment, it becomes easier to reclarify who we are and reassert our own identity.
Hear how Adrienne used writing stories to remind herself of her life before caregiving and how doing so helped put into perspective that caregiving was only one part of who she is. In all the ways that caregiving is a beautiful and generous gesture, it can often steal away our sense of self. Using reflective writing practices are a fantastic way of inviting a deeper part of our self back into our lives.
