New Focus

IMG_20160726_150605495-1It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted anything. In my last post I talked about how my life had changed and how I was trying to adjust. While I was working on this I found this blog and the direction it was headed, very uninspiring. I needed to reevaluate and get this blog going in a direction that is more inspiring to me and hopefully to others as well.

My personal journey for the past few years has been in learning how to use journaling and other rituals to reclaim and embody my femininity and sensuality. I desire to eventually teach journaling and poetry as a form of therapy or mental hygiene. So I need this blog to be a place where I share what I learn with you and hopefully move from sharing to teaching.

Personal Update- Revamping

DSCN0058Wow! Time has really gotten away from me. My life took a crazy turn and I can’t seem to get it together. I won’t go into details but I lost my job as well as the place I was living and ended up having to move back in with my parents who live on the other side of the country from where I was. I had to sell most of my stuff and move into their very crowded spare bedroom. I’m not handling it well. My mind is still completely scattered and I can’t get it working again.  Keep reading “Personal Update- Revamping”

Secondary Creative Expressions

IMG_20160216_171252395_HDRI’m a firm believer that every single person on this earth has a primary creative expression. Not all of them are what is traditionally considered creative but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t. I’m also a firm believer that having a secondary creative expression is vital, especially for us creatives. We often find ourselves blocked and unable to use our primary creative expression the way that we need to, so we need a secondary creative expression to help us unblock.  Keep reading “Secondary Creative Expressions”

Speak Life

Speak LifeIt’s official! I’m a terrible blogger. I was doing well posting twice a week but that didn’t last long. I’ve been off my game for a while. First I had writer’s block, then I got sick, and most recently I had jury duty. I haven’t been able to get back into the swing of things. But enough excuses. I’ve had something on my mind that I want to talk about.  Keep reading “Speak Life”

The Dreaded Writer’s Block

I am currently suffering from writer’s block. For me, having writer’s block means that everything else grinds to a halt. Writing is not just a form of expression for me, it’s how I stay sane. Writing helps me to sort out my thoughts and clear my mind. When my thoughts get too jumbled, I become incapable of being productive. Since, I am currently out of commission I thought I would share some of the websites I think have some helpful techniques for addressing writer’s block. Keep reading “The Dreaded Writer’s Block”

Plan With Me Part 2

As promised in my last post I going to talk about my daily pages today. The monthly and weekly spread were pretty easy for me to come up with. I have always had monthly and weekly spreads in every planner I’ve ever had. I knew what worked, what didn’t work, and what else I was looking for. I have never had daily pages before. I have never thought that they would be necessary because I don’t have tons of appointments or huge to-do lists. When I discovered project-based planning, it became quite obvious that daily pages could work for me. Actually, if I want to achieve my goals, organizing my days better is a requirement.

Goal Tracking Struggles

GoalsBefore I actually started this blog, I wanted to learn a bit about blogging. Technically, I’ve been blogging since 2005 but only as a personal outlet. I have never blogged with the intention of connecting with people. One of the things I kept hearing was to pick a perspective to write from. Apparently, they say that there are three perspectives you can write from:

  • The guru- someone who has mastered something and can teach you to master it too
  • The sherpa- someone who has made it up the mountain before and could do it again
  • The struggle- someone who is just sharing their journey
