If life doesn't seem to be going the way you want and you're feeling down, open up your computer or take out a pen and do this writing exercise.
Write out the important points in your life that have made you who you are. Tell the story as if you are writing a book about your life.
As you write, imagine all the things you've accomplished and hardships overcome.
When you get to the present moment, start writing out a future.
What do you imagine happening down the line? What adventures do you want to have?
