This entry is an exercise from the amazing book "The Artists Way". If you don't own or don't have the money to buy it, find a used one or buy a new one and begin reading it! The book will help you transform your thoughts and enhance your creativity.
The point of this particular task is to write down anything that comes to your mind (making sense or not). Write until it's all out and you can mentally and possibly physically feel better. Below was my process today; It might be convoluted, but I definitely learned a message from my thoughts today.
Need to clear my head and open up new channels of creativity. Something is blocking my creative channel and I'm desperately searching for it. This is a good lesson: I said I was desperate to find it, but now that I wrote that down, I need to remind myself to (1) not to be so hard on myself and (2) live in the moment and be present without desiring something that could or could not happen.
I should be writing about my baby. My wife had her 16 week appointment today and the baby is doing fantastic. Heart is beating at the right pace and is growing/healthy. I am blessed to have such an incredible wife that supports me through this journey I am on. I know it's all going to pay off, but everyone has to fall a few times before they really learn how to ride a bike - I'm getting bruised and getting a few bumps, but I'm fighting a meaningful fight, so it's worth the pain.
We all have lifestyle choices and we chose how much money we want to spend on "stuff". How nice does your apt. need to be? How nice does your car have to be? How much do a pair of jeans cost? It's all a choice we have control over. We all over eat (I mean I am the biggest emotional eater there is), but I guarantee if we cut everything in 1/2, we would all save money and most likely feel better.
Everyone makes mistakes, but how do we learn from them and grow, develop new thought patterns and to interrupt the old ones. I thought it would be good to share that I am listening to DRE and he's a mastermind, what a talented dude. Hopefully I get to interview him one day.
Now that I wrote these thoughts down, I feel so much better. I feel like I have more room to breathe in my lungs and my brain feels so much more at ease. I used to not like writing, but now I actually love it. What tool to help people overcome thought blocks.
