Self-portrait for Play Therapy Class

At first, my mind was totally blank. I considered drawing, but that wasn’t a pleasant thought. A self-portrait…for play therapy, where should I start? I can tell you things about others, but how do I tell others about me? I value being there for others, but sometimes I’m not there for myself.
I grabbed several magazines and began cutting out pictures of things I liked (Mexican food, music, nature scenes, my family, “the house”…) I even cut out a couple of things that I just like thinking about and hoping for.
It started coming together…slowly at first and then it began to flow and it was difficult for me to stop. When I finished it was a “work of art,” and I was surprised. I’ve been to this place before, surprised at my gifts. “I did that? This came from me? I didn’t know I had that inside of me!” Dr. Stangline is correct, all of us are artists in one way or another, we just haven’t been validated.
The truth is, I don’t know me very well. Well, that‘s not completely true. I dwell more on the things I do wrong than the things I do right. Let’s see…if I do some more exploring…who knows what or who I’ll find inside myself.
