This drawing hangs prominently in our home to remind us daily of rising above difficult situations. Like a punching bag, the bottom is weighted so the doll has no problem uprighting itself when knocked over and indicative of a useful habit - a skill which we can learn and become a master with years of practice and 10,000 repetitions.
There is a second tradition related to Drama Dolls for goal setting. The dolls can be purchased with just the white blank eyes. When I decide to make a goal - best to think of one that takes about a year to accomplish - I put in the left eye. When the goal is accomplished, I put in the right eye.
This is something I want to start with my granddaughters and pass on to future generations.
