Finding Yourself through Journaling and Free Printable Month Tags

When my daughter was very young, I enrolled in a creative writing course. I aspired to become a freelance writer.

Writing during her nap times and night was exhausting. Sometimes I would work at night to finish a project and had to get early for the next day.

There were so many things to be done for the family, for my baby, for the house that I had no time for myself.

Then one day I read a quote that jolted me out of the torpor.

Home Coming

Home Coming

I decided to spend some time doing something I enjoyed every-day without guilt. However, I found out it wasn’t easy.

Guilt is another tag for motherhood. Why DO we always feel guilty in spite of doing the best? I think it comes from a collective consciousness that we have inherited from our ancestral mothers.

I started writing Morning Pages as suggested by Julia Cameron in her book The Artist’s Way.

She says-

The bedrock tool of a creative recovery is a daily practice called Morning Pages.

Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning…….They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind– and they are for your eyes only. Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and synchronize the day at hand. Do not over-think Morning Pages: just put three pages of anything on the page…and then do three more pages tomorrow.

I wrote whenever possible (morning or night) for five days a week. This practice became an anchor. I looked forward to that time with my journal.

Writing Space

Writing Space

However, diligently I wrote non-stop three pages mostly every-day. It helped to calm to my anxious mind. There were moments of clarity and profound wisdom.  Many times grace flowed divine and pure.

It gave me time and space to come with terms with the anxiety and stress of everyday life. It taught me that acceptance of any moment depends on your expectations.

Every day the blank page in my journal poses no expectations and yet offers infinite possibilities.

If you would like to explore writing a journal, here are few resources to help.

Conversations

Conversations

Orange and Yellow

 Will you lend me the bright orange dear morning, when the dawn breaks and melts the darkness?

Will you give the yellow sunshine dear noon, when shadows lengthen to rest on garden chairs?

Dear evening, if you walk with me as I go home

I promise to give you a bouquet of orange, yellow blossoms

And share the whispering secrets of the dawn

I might tell you the languid conversations of trees and leave affairs in the afternoon

So that when you meet the night, you can tell the solitary moon what it missed

And then perhaps with its crescent glance would give a silver hue.

To that longing in your heart

Solitary Moon

 

 

Breath of Freedom

Glimmer

At times the anticipation of pain will keep you stuck in the same place

It will give you inertia and though wisdom might give you a nudge you will ignore

Going on through the day with the fear in your heart

Nothing you do will involve the ‘all’ of you

For fear will overpower, override, overwhelm everything

Your heart will be like a small scared child

And as you sit through the darkness

Trying to stop the tears that glide incessantly

With quivering lips and shivering  fumbling fingers

Wiping those tears on your face

In the darkest hour sometime somehow

A thought, a place, a deed

Or some long lost fellow traveller’s words

Would whisper and echo

Through some small space in your heart unaffected by pain

here you would turn again and again to seek solace and comfort

To take that small step towards an unknown destination

As you feel the chain of pain slacken

You take a breath towards freedom….

If I ….

If I ….

We are happy

If I am unable to complete that ‘to-do list’  it is right.

If I want to sit with a cup of coffee with the pile of pending housework, it is OK.

If I spend some time in making soap bubbles with my daughter, it is fine.

If I go out in the rain without an umbrella to soak it is lovely.

If while baking with my child the cake sinks it becomes a happy memory

If Saturday afternoon lingers in the shadows with paper and threads, it is much fun.

If while walking on the everyday path, I take a turn towards left to walk into the woods it is fascinating

If tears glide while watching a movie as I break down there is nothing to hide.

Just let the wind into my hair and let the breeze whisper the secrets.

As I realize life dances in such moments of Divine grace.

Not Doing a Geographical

Resplendence

I have realised that peace cannot be attained by completing the list of never-ending tasks. It is not there at the end of the day. It cannot be found by ‘doing the geographical’. (I love this expression, which implies removing yourself from a place either literally or figuratively.) . So many times I walk away from people, places and feelings, those very times I fight with myself. It becomes a heady ride of emotions. Anger, guilt, resentment compete with each other to get my attention. Peace at such times stands in the corner like an ignored child who has lost all hope of getting the mother’s attention.

Recently, I have been letting the anger, and its friends do all the theatrics for me. I watch as a spectator and clap at their brilliant performances.  If I get totally engrossed I would buy their cause.  However, I simply watch as they perform the parts in this drama of everyday. They recede after sometime behind the curtains. Yes, they can again give another performance, but then I too will just watch. Instead of ignoring I would greet them with respect and let them be. At such times, I have noticed that while I am watching these antics, peace comes over to sit beside and holds my hand.

Being at peace is that small feeling of comfort in the depths of the heart unaffected by the outer chaos. It is like a warm glow of fire, which is so reassuring on a cold night. It blooms like a flower spontaneously with the touch of the rains after a storm. It is not the end of turmoil, but the discovery of order in ‘disorder’.   Peace is that space when colours brighten, and the day swings on the rope of happiness for no reason. Just as a child running in the open your soul feels the gay abandon of peace resonating in your heart as a joyous tune.

 I Understand

 The Certain Uncertainty

And the Uncertain Certainty.

 But I

 Have Hopeless Hope

Or Hopeful Doubts

 I Search

 The Sum of Nothing

Or Nothing in Something

 I Laugh 

  at  little Inconsistencies

And at the Illusion in the Visions

 I Know

 Life moves in one Direction

But Mind can travel in both

  I  Still Dream

  Of the Impossible

And experience the Miracles around me

 I am Enthralled

  By the Infiniteness of the Universe

And  can see the Oblivion

 I Bow

 To the five Elements

To the Creator, Nurturer, the Destroyer

  I Accept

 That time is a flow

And the only concept constant is the CHANGE

 

 

Me

The Wanderer

I sit with myself to talk mostly when it is dark
We sit together to speak amicably and agree
Worry, brood, get anxious or argue
Smile, laugh and cry
Though we both understand that whatever the misgivings we ARE friends forever…
