Have fun writing, Mom. I had fun watching you write, Mom. – Everett, 4 y.o.
Sometimes, we need to be reminded of the joy in life. To keep it lighthearted. And to listen, truly listen to children. They are wise.
A writing practice I am focusing on is putting my priority project literally first. Each time I sit down to write, I give myself time to work on my priority project.
Yesterday I sat down with three projects and had only an hour. So I set a timer, wrote on my priority project for 30 minutes, then switched to my second priority project to finish out my writing time. I felt good and accomplished. I later rewarded myself – I was present with my family, I cooked nourishing meals, I reflected on life in my blog, and smiled. (Today I practiced this 30-minute routine again and felt so good about my progress!)
Laughter is good medicine for the soul, and comes from a lighthearted place in our awareness.
Smile, dance, and celebrate being alive.
