Your Spark friend Polly.

Sometimes I can feel depleted and when I do I find hope in this verse I am sharing with you.

Isaiah 40:31

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Writing helps me focus my thoughts and get out my emotions. We won Tuesday’s battle and his sentencing is feb 6. We won yesterday’s battle and she gets 14 CLS hours. Today’s battle is if this guy is going to appeal his plea bargain and we go to trial

The systems we have for disabilities are not very caring. How many denials do you have to get before they let you go in front of a Judge or does that department work differently? Write out those frustrations in your Morning Pages because stress can kill you.

She was born that way. 35. Lives in her own apartment one mile from our house and now have 2 places to maintain instead of One. We spend last year and today and Thursday in the judicial system because 3 men that live in the same complex sexually assaulted her. All guilty, sex offenders list and keep breaking probation or tether boundaries. Cmh pushes for the to be in the community and independent yet we get no support

Was she born that way or inquired . How old is your daughter? My daughter is 51 and many years ago she had a major stroke and has been in and out of coma at least 3 times. Doctors gave her up for dead , but she survived but has early onset Dementia alone with her disability's from the stroke. She is a diabetic , one side of her body is paralyzed , she has kidney failure. Due to her weaken condition she gets everything coming and going. She does not realize her thinking is not right and calls and tells untrue stuff to other members of my family. She lives in NC , but calls me everyday and I have a hard time dealing with her . It is very depressing. So I understand how writing what you are feeling helps because it is lighting my load too.

I feel much lighter getting what I feel out on paper since I live alone and there is no one to talk to . I am bad to hold things in and it does weigh you down.

My recent experiences from the tool of writing morning pages from
The Artists Way felt like a big shovel rescuing me.

The Morning pages a compass that led me to a shovel..

I never seem to know what I’m going to dig up next.

I am ready to dig deeper.

Yes, the day seems incomplete without this practice. I’m not sure if I’m filling the well or pulling things out. Perhaps a bit of both. Does that make sense?

EARTHSEAME

I just ordered the book on Amazon and it should be here by Saturday. I am just now getting closer to the end of The Artists Way.

Morning pages have become my most loyal of friends and are a bit like having a free counselor.

I had no idea until just today that Julia Cameron wrote , "The Writing Diet: Write Yourself Right-Size"

What a surprise!

Looking forward to this next process.

I am re-starting this book in January 2020. I am at a more stable point in my life so I feel that I can give this the focus and attention that it requires. I am ready to make the commitment! I love that I can harness my creativity--one of my life's greatest joys--to help with something that is very difficult.

Hi Evie,
I agree with you - the Morning Pages do help with creativity - but it is a struggle to get the walking in and being aware of eating. I haven't been very active on this team - got off track a while back - still about the same weight as I was - but busy with other things. I need to get back on track.

I've been reading The Writing Diet for the last two weeks now. I'm finding that the Morning Pages are helping with my creativity but I'm struggling to stay aware and make good food choices and walk every day. Hopefully I'll become more consistent as I progress!
