Morning Pages and More…


After a week of morning pages, we are not going to ask how many days you wrote them. Even in her books, Julia Cameron asks and hopes that you are answering seven out of seven but as with a whole lot of other things in your life you keep your own counsel. As we are well aware, what we think and what we actually do either are or can be two different things..

Life provides us with so many different opportunities to make choices. Sometimes, of course they are not always in our best or highest interest but choose we do.

If you have not gotten the morning pages habit yet, please, please perservere because you will be amazed at how many direct and indirect benefits will result! I came across this great blog by a morning pages aficionado and the points he raises will be discussed in today’s session later this morning.

According to Nicky Hajal these are the top five!

Slice through brain loops.

Identify what’s important every day.

Gain perspective over events.

Keep your projects on track.

Anchor new habits.

Soooooo, just for today pck up that pen and spill out three pages of random, stream of consciousness thoughts and observe your day unfold!

And above all be authentically grateful for the abundance that is our to have and to share with others.  And so it is…Namaste.

I am a happily retired teacher/expat to be now relocated to the spectacularly beautiful Harbour City of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. During snowbird six I decided to morph from snowbird to Mexpat! I'm taking the 'scenic route' geographically and metaphorically during the next 5 to 6 months as I downsize, downsize, downsize in preparation for an international move in the fall.
