I like how the categorical questions help provide some guidance and structure to the writing exercise. The guided questions helped me think about recognizing the goals, situations, and perceived change as positives and strengths. I tend to downplay my strengths or I just do not recognize them as perceived strengths. I am more of a pessimist and less of an optimist. The categories are also a helpful reminder of self-care. People may not recognize what they have as being considered strengths until they find the time to examine themselves. Helping clients identify their strengths, dreams, and motivations will help them understand themselves and what they need to do to reach their goals.
