Writing

December 2 Writing.
What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it?
(Author: Leo Babauta)

I'm going to add change the word to CREATING. Because I don't do much writing ... well I guess I do. I have a journal where I write down my thoughts and favorite promises from the Bible, and also notes that I want to remember. I also do some writing on my blog. But that's not the question ... what do I do that doesn't contribute:

- blog surfing instead of creating or writing
- getting anxious about all the other responsibilities that I have so I don't do anything
- watching tv

Some things to do to eliminate these:
- having a list of things to do (to keep me organised)
- having a time limit on how long I will surf around looking at blogs and other inspiring stuff
- choosing to create when I often would sit down and veg on the couch

** this prompt is good for thinking about other important stuff like:
- having fun with my kids
- spending time with God
- getting my housework done
- creating (scrapbooking and quilting)

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7
