The Sandbox Writing Challenge Review #3 & Part 4 Loosening Up Exercises

OK….Here in the Sandbox, we’re hitting another milestone with review #3! 

So for this week we’re going to review the last 11 prompts we’ve done since February 23rd (unless, of course, you want to review MORE than that). Then we will tackle the Loosening Up Exercise for Part 4 of Roberta Allen’s book The Playful Way to Knowing Yourself.

1. Take time now to go and look over the exercises you’ve done then answer these questions:
 Did any of your answers surprise you? Why? My blog post for Challenge #28 All By Myself was an eye opener especially when I added the photo and really saw mysef ‘disconnected’ …..

And my post for Challenge #30 My Gift To You was a hard one to write, yet the words came easily….


2. Is there any exercise that felt more charged than others? If you’d like, carry on with that post and share your additions with us. Again, my post for My Gift To You…a mother is suppose to protect and love their child, unconditionally….as I’ve gone through these challenges and learned just how ‘starved’ I was of that, and how it affected me and my choices throughout my life, has been major for me….finally figuring this stuff out is liberating….


3. Were there any exercises that felt incomplete to you? If so, complete them now. Stop when your energy is spent. Then please share them with us. No…..I think I hit all the points I needed to.

4. What insights about yourself (if any) came to light in these last 11 exercises? I’m realizing that digging in this sandbox has been an amazing, therapuetic experience for me, and the more digging I do, the more I uncover, the lighter I become!!!!
