Start where you are.
Use what you have.
Do what you can.
These words are what I need the most right now.
I spend so much time planning to start, buying things to help me get going and expecting so much of myself.
I’m in a bit of a creative and writing funk right now. My imagination is on vacation without me, I don’t trust the usefulness of my (blogging) words and I’m afraid to write my thoughts/feelings on paper. Not sure why…
Creating and writing are the core things that keep me sane and my mind & feet firmly planted. I’ve been a little lost, wandering through the days without purpose. Some anxiety and moody blues have returned after I thought I had banished them from my mind.
It’s so bad that this post almost didn’t happen. But it needs to, because that’s what this quote is all about.
Time to get back on track.

I’m starting with clearing my mind. Becoming aware of me. How I feel. Where my thoughts pull me when I let them run rampant. What calms me, what puts me over the edge.
To help me on this journey I joined Headspace.
Yes. I made a plan. Yes. I made a purchase. Don’t judge me. I have, however, let go of the expectations.
Que sera, sera.
Back to Headspace.
Headspace, online and in app form, is a workout for your mind. Ten minute guided meditation sessions to help you calm down, be more aware and make better sense of the space in your head. You can start for free and do the Take 10 session one today!
My mind clearing journey has just begun. I plan to continue it daily with hopes that my creativity and writing flourish.
I’m starting where I am.
I’m using what I have.
I will do what I can.
