Doable Dose of Kimochis

Week Four


Hopeful Thoughts

Bring out your hopeful feeling pillow and have a family discussion about each persons hopes and dreams for this year.  Specifically, what is one thing each family member wants to see happen for themselves that will take practice, patience, and hopeful thoughts.

Pass the hopeful feeling pillow for family members to share hopeful thoughts one could use when their brain and heart feel discouraged.  

For example,  “I can do anything I put my mind to.”

Keep your hopeful feeling pillow somewhere where anyone can tuck it in their pocket on a day they might need a reminder to hold on to hopeful thoughts.

We are HOPEFUL that you have enjoyed these Doable Doses of Kimochis!

We will continue to send you a Doable Dose once a month, so be on the lookout.
