The Artist’s Way – Week 3: Recovering a sense of power

“This is the most confident I have ever seen you.”

The morning pages are changing my life. It’s been three weeks, and I have a sense of clarity that I’ve never really had before.

Suddenly, I can see the road opening up before me, revealing more and more steps. I can see what has been missing, and where I could go next to make it right.

My vision for my business is expanding. I am excited about the future, and it took me barely three days to lay out an entire roadmap for the life and business I really want to create.

If you’ve never tried the morning pages, I highly recommend it! It was the part I was most resistant towards that I have grown to love the most. I’ve been doing them diligently every morning, and it has been worth it every time.

My “Chaotic Good” Morning Pages Writing Routine

Resistance

For a while, I felt guilty for taking 30-60 minutes every day to just write, because “I could be working right now”. Now I can see how much work actually happens on the page. So far, it’s helped me write new classes, figure out my thesis concept, and prepare for all kinds of conversations. Now, I treat it as a vital part of my work day!

Reflections

It stressed me out how little I could remember of my childhood. I feel like I’m not old enough to justify how much I have forgotten.

I did love the whole chapter about growth. That really resonated with me this week. The part about synchronicity was nice too. A lot of things are coming together for me, and it’s pretty cool!

“Sloth, apathy, and despair are the enemy. Anger is not. Anger is our friend. Not a nice friend. Not a gentle friend. But a very, very loyal friend.”

Julia cameron

I was intrigued by this part. Julia says: “Anger is not the action itself. It is action’s invitation.”

As somebody who doesn’t express anger very often, I appreciated the distinction, and I like the idea of seeing anger as a friend who just doesn’t want you to get screwed over. They might be a bit blunt, but they’re a good friend!

I’m getting busier, but I’m still excited about the book, and I’m still doing all the things. I hope you had a good week and that you enjoy the weekend!

Love,
Flora
