Going to therapy always sparks motivation and creativity in me. I leave feeling a bit euphoric and excited about the world, even when (or especially when) it is a tough session. There are times I feel awkward and confused and frustrated, and working through those moments breaks up so many blocks in my mind.

Each block that is broken or fractured or cracked lets in more light and opportunity in my life. It is natural that I put up walls and blocks to protect myself. The problem is that I never started tearing down the blocks that were no longer of use to me. Well, I never did until I started therapy. Blocks I put up to protect myself as a child or in the military or after a heartbreak are still present, even though the threat is gone. As I tear them down it allows for a more full and bright life, and from that life comes creativity and happiness and satisfaction and motivation.
