It’s been awhile since I last wrote, part of that intentionally and part of that just life being busy. I’ve missed writing but I’m hoping to get back into writing a bit more (which I know I’ve said before), this time with a little bit more preparation to set myself up for success.
One of the things I’ve realized lately is that if I’m not putting in specific systems I tend to find excuses to not do things. However, whether some kind of obligation or something else just putting a simple calendar event into my phone tends to be enough encouragement to actually carry out certain tasks. One of the things that happened last year was that I tried to get out of just doing things mindlessly. By stripping out a lot of my existing routines life became a little more hectic at times but also allowed me to be much more present.
This year as I’ve started to add things back in one of the areas that I most appreciate having back is my journal. I used to journal at least once a day but most of the times twice a day. This is one of the things that had me writing the most in the first place. Recently I started working on my morning routine to add some things back in to starting my day correctly. This includes starting every day with my journal and some reading.
In addition to that I’ve also been working on a few other projects, namely planning a wedding that I’m hoping to share some stories from. While it’s a little late I still plan to do an update on how my last year ended up with my words for last year and some of my projects. I also have a few new words for this year and a few other stories, but for now this is a good start that I hope primes things to start getting a bit more into a routine for me. We’ll see where it goes.
