Finding Peace

When I have a pen and my bullet journal, I know that the chaos of the day is about to be silenced. I am aware that writing gives me peace. Everyone has something that triggers peace. For me, I find peace when I write. Writing lets me manage my thoughts and ideas. I can silence the busyness of life when I sit down and begin to write. I can express my feelings in my bullet journal. I am able to organize my thoughts in my journal. I am able to get things down to organize what steps need to be taken. I am able to divulge my deepest thoughts and determine if those thoughts require validation. Writing is an important part of self care for me. When I finish a writing session, I feel free and calm. The feeling of exasperation is gone. I am more focused if I have been distracted. I am cool, calm, and collected. For me, writing gives me true peace.

Writing a Book

Yesterday, I made a goal to publish two books this year. I have published a book in a long time. I have so many brewing up inside of me. However, I’m afraid that when I publish the book that no one will buy it. This fear has been almost paralyzing. Having this fear has resulted in me not writing anything and publishing anything. I cannot let my fear and assumptions hinder me from writing. I love writing and reading books. I enjoy being in a space of uninterrupted writing. I have read a book and became frustrated because I know that I could write a book on the same topic. I want to write to help people maneuver through life. I wish that people could learn from all my life lessons and not repeat the same mistakes. I’ve lost a lot of time from my life focusing on things that ultimately was not important. Today, j plan to draft an outline for my book using MindNode and start to create a concept map for what I want to share with others. No one is stopping me from writing except for me. I am my biggest road block.
