Day 1 - In your own space, talk about your Happy Placeā€”the things that give you joy, calms you or keeps you sane.

I quite like this one, especially since I wouldn't have been able to answer it as certainly a year ago. But now I am very sure: it's my own land, which is to say southern Michigan.

I seriously did not realize before I got back, but I sank so much of myself, my identity, my stability into this land. And the land held me and kept me safe through some pretty scary shit, to the extent that I've had more than one therapist start talking about angels.

This land is woven through all of my self-visualizations and mental anchor images. Land with water running just underneath, land with trees connecting the water and the sky. When I got back it was like meeting the other half of me, again.

I'm so glad you are back where the land knows you and you know the land. May you support each other in this new year, and beyond!
