#soul #mind #spirit #blogging

A wise and gentle friend told me recently that I need to write more.  I know that writing is helpful and healing and powerful for me – but this advice was extremely mot6922098920_8b2570dbe4ivating to me, as advice from wise and gentle friends often is.

I’ve been following a Gretchen Rubin adage: What you do EVERY DAY matters more than what you do ONCE IN A WHILE.  So every morning, I’ve been waking up at 5 a.m. and spending 30 minutes writing.  And on days when I oversleep and don’t have 30 minutes, I sit down on the couch with my coffee and my laptop and I write for 10 minutes, or 5, or 2 – just to keep the habit in place.

Finding an outlet with which to express myself has been helping me tremendously.  This year has been really hard – but the past few weeks, since beginning to blog, have felt just a little bit easier.
