I started about 6 different diaries when I was a kiddo. I would start out with the best penmanship I could muster and then a couple weeks (ha, days!) I would toss it in a drawer and that would be it. But the thing is I would always feel so good when I write-lighter somehow-even when it was nonsensical. There was something about not showing it to anyone that was freeing and encouraged my creativity. Much like writing here-as I am getting a bit older I am realizing things that make me tick-things that if I want to be operating at my most efficient, most joyous, most fulfilled-I need to make sure and make space for them in my day to day life-maybe not everyday but most days.
-Exercising (Running is a big one these days)
-Journaling and Blogging
It isn't terribly complicated and yet these things slip through my fingers time and time again. They get replaced for things that aren't as high of a priority. It is time to make a change-I'm ready.
What things have you noticed keep you running smoothly?
