Positive mental attitude by releasing what doesn’t serve (day 21)

Today is day 21 of my 21-day commitment to focusing on strengthening my spiritual foundation and sharing my process with you.

The time has flown by.

And, at the same time, I feel like I’ve always been in this process of strengthening my spiritual foundation.  What that tells me: yes, I would love this to be a natural, daily part of my life!

For the last couple of days, I’ve gotten back to a practice that I used daily years ago.  The original idea sprung from Julia Cameron’s morning pages and I adapted the process to make it my own. 

Each morning before I started my day, I would write long-hand two or three pages of whatever came to mind.  I started with writing all the ideas in my head that weren’t serving me.  I got them out of my head and onto the paper.

Then, somewhere in about the middle of the writing, ideas would spring to mind.  Ideas for how to best do my day that day and ideas for projects down the road.

Basically, I cleared the junk out of my head and then the good stuff had some space in which to flow.  And, I loved having a record of the great ideas.  I then transfered them from those pages to wherever they best fit in my planner and I got rid of the pages.

All that remained were ideas that could serve.  And, often by the end of the day one or more of those fresh ideas had already been implemented.  How cool is that?
