Distracted from Morning Pages

I found myself distracted over this last month by little mundane things like trying to make a living.   And while I was still coming up with ideas for my creative projects, I wasn't putting them into action.  I was too busy spinning in place.  When I let this happen, sooner or later I feel the unbalance that this creates, an unbalance that I lived with for many years and am now consciously trying to drive out of my life.  Writing the Morning Pages, taking even a few minutes in the evening to work on a watercolor sketch, reading the artist's blogs that I have posted here... all these things serve as a counterbalance to the nitty gritty and free up my mind to be more productive and less hectic. So I fell back into bad habits for a few weeks, fuel was added to the fire by my internet problems, and I am climbing back onto the track that I want to be on.  One good thing is that I never put the watercolors away and I carry my morning pages journal and my camera everywhere I go.  I feel saner already.

  1. I did morning pages quite a long time ago now. That's a good book! It's great that you are aware of when you feel off balance--that keeps you headed in your right direction. You can't go wrong with writing, art, and a camera. ;)

    Glad to hear you're feeling more on track and your Internet is working better. :)
