Finding Stillness is a weekly series on ways I find stillness 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!
