I’ve been struggling the past couple days with getting going in the morning. There’s quite a bit of activity coming up later this week. I think it will improve. I’m so used to opening my eyes and starting up my day that this 'not feeling like getting out of bed' thing is bothering me. Might be from the fact that I have been staying up later because I have both Night Owl and Early Bird tendencies. Might be too that last week was incredibly, stupidly, unbelievably busy then a complete lack of plans. I think I will suggest to myself that I increase my focus on balance for the next little while. I suppose it won’t matter that much since I’ll be on the road soon. 3 weeks from this Friday. Yowzers. That feels soon. Am I ready for this drive?
I finished a book yesterday. That felt good. I read so many simultaneously that it sometimes feels like I don’t finish anything. It was Big Magic. I really appreciated Elizabeth Gilbert’s take on creativity. I think it is helping me with my process. The byline is “creative living beyond fear.” That completely comes across. The book taught me that I really enjoy reading anecdotes mixed with insightful thoughts. I’d love book suggestions though I don’t really want to take on any new ones at the moment. I haven’t been great about my 50 pages a day lately and that has made me feel like I shouldn’t invite anything else to the list at the moment.
On Saturday, I watched What the Bleep? again. It really got me thinking about chemicals in our bodies and setting intentions. When I did my Artist’s Way check-in on Sunday, I reread my morning pages and found that I had stated that I’m open to a certain something on Tuesday morning and got the answer Tuesday night. I wasn’t even conscious of inviting it in but in it came. So crazy. I’ve been noticing an increase in synchronistic events since I left my job. I suppose it’s having the flexible time and probably also that I have more mental capacity to focus on it. I’ll have to keep my eyes and heart open to what is barreling down my path.
