Soothe Your Soul

Taking time this morning to read the Blog posts of some new followers. I haven’t said much about the state our lives are in, but if I did, it would be similar to this.

7 Ways to Self-Reflect During the Lockdown

This jumped off the page at me.

Let Me Settle

I cleaned off my desktop, and have only downloaded one new meme. I’m just enjoying the look of it, nice and clean with it’s Windows blue background.

I don’t know who needs this today, but feel that someone does. At first sight, it covered me in peace, so I want to share.

We’re barely into April, and I feel I’ve already let many relationships go. I become more and more particular about who I share my time with. People are showing their true selves quickly. Maybe that’s why it feels I’ve let go of so many.

There is one who doesn’t change.

He’s the same yesterday and today, and He’s not going to let me settle.

The Morning Pages

I’ve added another simple habit to my life.

It’s called, The Morning Pages.

This was daunting to begin. As you know I like my mornings, and coffee is an intricate part. You are to write three pages by hand, as soon after you awake. Or in my case, as soon as humanly possible.

The idea is to start before the brain starts.

The mind can quickly begin shooting off ideas about my day, so this has been an interesting exercise.

The first day was effortless. My mind wasn’t fully awake, so it felt like my heart was dictating the writing. There must be a small window of time to be in this space, because the next day I waited to begin.

It was a struggle between heart and mind.

So, they key is….do it before anything else.

Therein lies the beauty of the Morning Pages.

Thank you Julia Cameron for sharing your creativeness, and Nadine at Bloomwords for mentioning her and this, in your Blog.

I love what Andy says about the comparison game. “The only way to win… is not to play.” Thank you Andy for the nomination, and sharing your wisdom. xx

I Tip My 40s to My Homies. — I have no idea what I’m doing

This is a new Blogger I started following recently.

The title of her Blog is what drew me in, “I have no idea what I’m doing.” That is how I feel most days.

This is a beautiful story of how she had to ‘rise up’ out of the trenches of her own life, and be that person she knew she could be. The man she loved chose to rise up to meet her and they now stand together.

For all my ‘happily ever after’ peeps. Beautiful. xx

Forty. What a weird thing it is to have a word symbolize so much in my mind. Previously, when I thought of being forty the following words came to mind: suburban, mom jeans, boring, mini-van, out of touch, old, conservative, confident, routine, accomplished. Those are all words that can terrify you depending on how you […]
