writing monday: creating a personal zen space
Happy Monday People! I want to meet you here, at the beginning of your week, to offer journaling ideas and inspiration to lift your spirit. My hope is to inspire reflection, power, and soul in your work and life through the art of longhand writing.
Sometimes I feel like I live in a pinball machine of incessant demands. I can barely finish a thought let alone listen to myself and my life. This is why I use a blank page and markers–it gives me space to harness my thoughts, ideas, and heart. After I write, I can better see, think, and act powerfully in my life.
With a journal and markers, you can create a personal zen space, wherever you are.
We cannot stop or slow life. There will not be a space in the future to catch our breath and finally reflect on things. The time is now. We humans need a space, a bubble, a hole in the bottom of a huge tree to think about life as it moves through us. A space to listen to the heart of matters. To ourselves.
This week, I encourage you to spend ten minutes each day–whenever– phone out of site, with pen, markers, or pencil and journal. Just you and the space. Begin each entry with the date at the top of the page and the words, Right now… At the end of the week, look back to see how life is flowing through you and you are flowing through life. You will be rewarded with self-insight.
Enjoy the art and soul of it!
