20 random thoughts on an early Thursday morning

  1. So far so good on my reading challenge. Will finish reading book 6 today.
  2. There’s a storm blowing around the house. It is SO cold that I may need to put on a cardigan over my jammies.
  3. Every morning I am so grateful for my first sip of tea for the day. I know it would be better to drink water only all day long, but water with a tea bag in it is so much more delicious.
  4. I love it when cats snore. It’s such a cute sound.
  5. I usually start each day with a fruit smoothie with some vitamins and almond milk. I notice the difference in energy throughout the day if I don’t have my shake for breakfast.
  6. I pondered quitting blogging altogether, and posting my blogs on Instagram. I just couldn’t let go. I am posting some of my posts on Instagram though, a couple days later.
  7. I suck at marketing. I usually find it a soulless thing, to shout off the rooftops that I have something and that you should come buy/read it. Some writers get very spammy with their work and I don’t want to be that person. Not talking about my books isn’t an option though!
  8. That reminds me, I need to write a post about a way of marketing that doesn’t feel soulless and that I want to fully employ this year.
  9. Just turned up the heating. Shivering while typing isn’t really helping.
  10. Every time I get deeper into writing a blog post, my mind goes: need to do something else, this is boring! Ohhh notification, let’s do that instead! In this, writing is like a meditation, shutting up the monkey mind with words.
  11. After this, I am going to write another post about yoga, for Sunday’s blog. And then after that, an idea beckons for a post for Saturday.
  12. Really need to look at my quarterly goals today, too. After I finish writing this, I need to grab my bullet journal and write down all the tasks that come from this random thoughts session πŸ™‚
  13. I can feel a poem brewing again. I think I need to keep my keyboard handy for when it is ready to be written.
  14. I am so grateful that I found a way to make bullet journaling work for me. I was so intimidated by all the pretty bullet journals when I first discovered them. Keeping it simple and messy is definitely my way.
  15. I really want to write more about bullet journaling, yoga, reading, writing, play, adventures, essential oils and many more things that are so busy spinning around in my head.
  16. I am editing my novel and it is both exhilarating and scary. I really want to do this story justice.
  17. I am so grateful for Grammarly. It makes my life so much easier. I keep misspelling some words, like exhilarating, and then Grammarly always jumps in with the correct spelling.
  18. I really want to write a post listing my favorite teas. It isn’t about creativity but it fuels it.
  19. Some days I go to bed and moan that I haven’t been very creative that day. Then I look at my bullet journal and read all the creative things I did on that day. The easiest way to shut up self-criticism.
  20. I am learning to embrace how imperfect I am. I no longer try to catch up on journaling for days I really didn’t feel like it,Β nor do I catch up on my daily doodles. I just turn the page and start anew, every time. It’s so liberating. I actually stopped journaling for a while because it became hard to journal when I wanted to write pages for previous days. Ridiculous, this perfectionism thing. Letting go of perfectionism really is a subject for a blog post I think.

That’s it! Wrote this list in 15 minutes, amidst a ton of distractions πŸ™‚ I have no doubt that 20 random thoughts will return.

  1. You should definitely write that tea post. Honestly, I’m so glad there’s someone else out there that seems to drink tea rather than coffee. Seems like everyone drinks coffee!

    I also love it when cats snore. πŸ™‚

    1. Yay! Another tea-oholic! And I know! I don’t even drink coffee. Smells horrible in my opinion πŸ™‚ will add the tea post to my list. Thank you!

  2. I love the sound of cats snoring – who knew that they snore! I also love tea, but I drink black tea English style, with cow’s milk and I pretty much run on it most days πŸ™‚ You are inspiring me to get a wiggle on with my own blog x
