Sunday Stills: Blank pages

Good Morning!

Today’s the theme is Fresh, well, so many things fresh things around me this morning:

The fresh flowers I’ve on my kitchen counter, fresh eggs, from the farm market, that I scrambled for my husband, fresh laundry waiting to be ironed, a new book on my coffee table …, but today I want to show the freshness of a habit, my journaling practice. I hope I have captured it below:

Let us live simply in the freshness of the present moment, in the clarity of pure awakened mind.

Matthieu Ricard

The freshness of a new morning
Coffee fragance diffusing through the kitchen
Blank pages waiting
Waiting for words
And thoughts 
To surrender to the moment

Have a lovely and fresh Sunday!

Nurturing Thursday: Write

You can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.
Jodi Picoult

After many months on and off with my writing, finally, I’m getting back to it. I had mixed feelings about it and my critical voice was speaking aloud.

I don’t know what I was afraid of, since I write for myself, to put on the pages what needs to come out of my mind, to clear my ideas, in general, to make sense of myself. It’s not that I’ll publish it or defense a thesis about it. It’s more a kind of lone therapy.

Well, my mind is playing many tricks recently, some of them dangerous, so it’s better to put everything clear on the paper and don’t let these tricks take over.

Sharing with Becca’s Nurturing Thursday.

We are all just canvases for our scars – Jodi Picoult

Noticing how a little gesture can light up my mind. I got these beautiful tiny flowers at the grocery store today. Why not? a gift for myself, I deserve it!

It’s snowing, all grey and cold out there, now at least my living room as colour and freshness. Hoping to give a break in my mood, I don’t know if it is depression, winter blues, but I need to recharge and take care of myself.

I just love Picoult’s quote from the Spark of light! It reminds of acceptance, and I need to be reminded of it all the time.

Wishing a peaceful day/night to you!

Noticing how calm I feel after writing. I don’t understand why I resist in doing it. Today I wrote about causes and consequences. Each little thing we do in this world has a consequence.  It isn’t easy to accept it, but learning to accept and learn to let go is a must if we want to live in harmony with ourselves.

“The wound is the place where light enters you” Rumi

Have a lovely Sunday!
