A Write Change

Writing is something that is very important to me. It has been for most of my life. However I can also skip from project to project, forgetting all about the one that I started, until months later when I find a few paragraphs scribbled on the first page of a new journal. This really frustrates me! 

My Mother has always said that 'a change is as good as a holiday', and so the other day, I went on a holiday! I wanted to change things up so that my writing would be something that was more of a priority, and in an obvious place so that it served as a visual reminder to do some writing, hopefully each day. Is writing something that is important to you too? 

Writing is important to me for many reasons; it's therapeutic, it's a way to de-clutter my thoughts, it's a way to write out prayers and the things I'm thankful for, and it's also a way that I try to leave a legacy for my children. 

This is the space beside my bed, before I went on a change holiday! ... 

And here it is after I changed things around ...

Now I have all that I need right beside my bed so that it's easily accessible to do some journaling before I go to bed, or as I wake up in the morning. It has been a much more productive set-up and I think it looks pretty cute too!

A couple of days after this change around, I also added a small CD player no longer needed in the lounge room. So now I am able to play music, listen to sermons on CD and other teaching Cd's as well. It has become a lovely little place to relax and I'm so thankful that my amazing husband isn't bothered by my late night journaling while he's sleeping (most times I do turn off the lamp and use my little reading light). I find that later at night, and earlier in the morning when the house is quieter, I am better able to think and process and the writing flows easier.

Now that this little area is set up fresh ... there shouldn't be any more excuses! 



  1. Enjoy your quiet time and tidy space. They are treasures!

  2. What a cozy little area! I love the little haven you created :)

    1. Thanks Jes, me too. Have a lovely Easter :)

  3. Lovely! I find I write best during the day. If I try at night, I'm just up for hours as my mind keep going :)

    1. I have found the same thing many times, where I've been up writing out a great idea, then I can't sleep afterwards! Oh well, it's all fun! :)


I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to leave your comment!
