Moving Beyond The Layers Through Writing

Putting my fingers to the keys feels so weird.  Generally I love to write and miss taking time out to do so, but lately the day comes and goes before I know it another week has gone by and I haven't taken the time to write.

Writing is how I let out what is on my my mind and heart.  It is how I share about the day to day in my life.

Yet I seem to let it settle off to the side often, letting various distractions in.  

I am a planner, scheduler, organizer, developer by trade.  But lately I have felt like it has all fizzled away.  In my heart it is still there, I know it is.  Yet there is a part of me that is kind of like, "why bother?".

Part of me knows and feels that if I make it a priority, then I will make the time and effort for it.  However, with a feeling of meh, whatever or does it really matter if I write with consistency I am not putting my fingers to the keys and writing or even pen and paper style.

For those of you who follow my posts, thank you.  Though I may go in spurts where I am not putting much out there thank you for still hanging with me.

If I enjoy writing as much as I do, why don't I sit and do it?

Truly it is the distractions I allow in.  The random scrolling, sitting and turning the t.v. on, the mindless activities that I do because of not wanting to expose my heart.

As I sit here and type, I can feel how good it is deep down.  It is one of a few things my mind needs, body and soul as well.

Life is a journey, it ebbs and flows.  If we don't take the time to tune in, we tune out.  We put on a layer, and another, and another. 

Last year April I spent time peeling back layers, releasing as needed, healing as needed, growing.  But as time went by I stopped peeling back the layers and even put back on some...some new, some old.

What layers do you have that you are ready to peel back?  What needs to be released?  Healed? Let grow and bloom?

We are in an usual time right now, I get that.  Take the time to dig in and listen, to learn.  Set your mind, body, soul free and feel the release.  Let yourself be like a butterfly who renews it's self and sets off, lighter and full of grace.  Let your roots dig deeper, the ground firm up around on, and grow and bloom.

Where are you at in your journey? 

Look inward, dig deep, release.
