Have you ever dreamt of what your future shall look like with your partner? Have you thought of the scenarios that you shall endure with your partner in the future? What plans have you made to spend quality time with your partner? In our busy schedules we often forget to give importance to our loved ones and take them for granted. Hence planning and making arrangements for having a lifetime with them can get difficult and seem like a tedious task whereas in reality it can be a beautiful and fulfilling experience filled with fun and adventure. Ananda is here to help you navigate through this phase!
The ‘Paint your Dream’ worksheet comprises an activity involving both the partners in the relationship. On an A3 sheet of paper by choosing 2 different sides of the sheet, both partners are supposed to start drawing what their future looks like by discussing all the goals, roles and responsibilities that both of you look forward to. You are to focus on and keep a track of all of the discussed goals and responsibilities. You are also allowed to segregate and break down your responsibilities and achievements for the future as a couple into smaller milestones and also depict the same through small drawings on the sheet for them to look cohesive like a collage.
During this entire process, both the partners can use their creativity to make the collage look attractive and more appealing to the eye by making use of colours, paints, glitters, stickers or any other art material that you like to add some detailing to your drawings!
All of the above things said, we would like you to know that this is not a formal assessment that is being done to understand more about your mental wellbeing in general. We just want you to get an insight about your current situation and reach out for help to Ananda’s qualified therapists if you feel so. There might be instances or questions by which you might feel triggered and some unresolved emotions might resurface, but do not worry. We as a team are here to guide you and deal with these emotions.
After you solve the worksheet, make it a point to discuss the results with your therapist for them to have an insight into your issue and make your healing journey effective and less painful.
Team Ananda hopes that this activity gives you a clear picture of your goals and responsibilities for the future and helps you to spend some quality time with your partner!
