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.

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.

You….

Friday Bliss 21ST Dec 2012

 

Shades of Joy

She is ten.

This is a post my daughter.

You were a tiny, helpless bundle with dark black hair…

Dancing curiosity in your eyes was so obvious.

You smiled and giggled and talked on-stop after you started speaking.

I look at you, head bent as you concentrate to draw in the sketch book.

I am amazed to notice the changes as if I am meeting you for the first time.

You look so grown up and independent.

However, in the darkness of the night when you come to me with sleepy eyes and say….Mama I am scared! You look so innocently naïve

And when I let my fingers wander through your hair you relax and trust unquestionably.

I watch you breeze away on the bicycle turning around the cornet to catch my eye……

When you tell I make the best cake in the world.

When you say that Friday’s rice and lentil casserole was just superb

When you look at me and understand that I am upset…

Dear daughter there is so much I want to say, but words elude.

Yet, I will add.

My life as your mother is a bliss!

The above picture was done by my daughter.

Sunshine Yellow

These lovely Chrysanthemums on my table

I am happy to notice the spaciousness of space as I clear the clutter.

A small cupboard for my daughter created order in the house.

These lovely green shoots are fenugreek, spinach, coriander and tomato.

 I found a lovely compact sewing machine that I ordered. I have a yearning to sew and create things for my home and family.

I deeply appreciate the presence of the Divine in my life. This week I have been amazed how things got done easily, tasks completed.

That small space of time in the morning when the house belongs to me

A dash butter on my toast and a glass of warm milk.

The changing season which brings in lovely winter vegetables on my table.

I am happy to cook nourishing soups and drink on Friday nights.

Many thanks to Liv Lane for sharing this wonderful ritual!

Mindfulness, Yoga and Nature

Friday Bliss-Mindfulness, Yoga and Nature

Sun and Sea

I am grateful this week to my child who inspired me to create a Nature Journal What started as a plan to make her aware of nature and connect her with nature has made my connection more meaningful.

I met my friend’s parents this week. What amazing connection we have! I am grateful to have such wonderful people in my life.

I baked a cake for my daughter and was overwhelmed to see the stars in her eyes!

Ever since I brought mindfulness to my yoga session the routine has lost its repetitiveness. Instead, I look forward to yoga now.

After a long humid weather finally it rained today…It is bliss to watch rain drops fall to the ground. Each drop creates a circle just for a split of a second as it  vanishes…

A cup of ginger tea is ultimate bliss in this weather.

Have a great week-end!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ode to a House

13 July 2012

Gratitude for this Friday

 This is an ode to a House, which was my childhood home.  This week it was sold off!  The house had not only provided me shelter but over a period of time, it had become my guardian.  It was here that I learned lessons for life and discovered the magic of love.

I thank you my house for whatever you gave me. I acknowledge every little thing about you today.

This Friday is dedicated to you my dear. With tears in my heart, I let you go…You will always be there even if you may lose your form.

 

Ode to a House

What do you do when the house you knew as a home is sold off?

What do you do when the house you ran to after school is not yours?

What do you do when you know that you cannot call on that house anymore?

What do you do when all you need is the comfort of those walls?

What do you do when you see each corner and crevice in amazing detail with closed eyes?

What do you do when you remember the summer evenings when wind entered from four corners?

What do you do when all you want to run to it and rest?

Perhaps a place, those stairs or the balcony with potted plants is the best.

And here was your kingdom of dreams.

Of fairies and angels imaginary lands

Stories that followed my tiny feet

The wooden Jasmin planter was a favourite haunt

A corner, few pebbles odds and ends

The hours thus spend were so rich.

Healing the scars before they became deep

And then I remember plucking the flowers.

Before going to school dressed up and all

In July when we had showers.

That lovely fragrance is still in my heart.

Running and jumping I grew up there.

From a baby to toddler to a child to a woman of the now

No matter why and how

I left you when I got my wings.

However, dearest house you never left me.

In the heart of my heart, you will always stay.

Loved and remembered every day.

You will be my solace, my comfort

My place my space my heaven for my soul

And I know when the tears glide.

Your memory will always make me smile.
