This is a crosspost from a Simple Blissful Life. It is one of the posts in my continuing series on Finding Stillness, my ways of becoming still within within without meditating. Follow the tag to read the other posts.
I have a large travelers notebook with four separate books. One of those books is for my daily pages.
Every day I sit down to write in it and empty my mind.
When I write in the morning, it quiets my mind enough for creative ideas to flow in.
When I write in them at night, it quiets my mind so much that I can sleep without all those thoughts keeping me from finding stillness.
Sometimes what I write doesn’t make sense.
Sometimes I suddenly write a poem. Sometimes I have the framework for a blog post pop up.
In this way, my daily pages not only help me to find stillness, but they also help me with my daily creative life.
Such a wonderful gift!
