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! 

Hopefully!

  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! :)
