Going through the motions.


Some days are like this. Just going through the motions.

I’m talkin’ daily exercise, folks. Physical and mental.

That two-mile-walk-100-situp routine you do every day feels stale. The three-stream-of-conscious pages you’re writing down on paper every morning read rote. You’re dawdling during your mid-day meditation. You’re preparing Hamburger Helper for dinner –again.

Lots of a daily practice may not seem authentic, yet it’s a practice nonetheless. Little parts that add up to a whole.

If you’re feeling like you’re going through the motions today, keep your eyes on the prize.

      Hi Sonia-

      I’ve been writing Morning Pages since 1993 – the first time I read The Artist’s Way. There’s an ebb and flow to them, just like what happens with the thoughts in your head.

      I used to get all stressed about it; now I simply go with the flow.

      Thanks for reading!
