Dealing with Overwhelm – Part One

It’s February. Way back in 2016 you made a solemn promise to yourself that 2017 was going to be the year you were going to get things done.

Don’t Shoot the Messenger

Brain blurts and messages For the past couple of weeks, I've been writing 'morning pages', which involves three pages of longhand writing every morning, to dump all of the stuff going around in your brain onto paper to make way for more creativity.  It's the brainchild of Julia Cameron, whose book, "The Artist's Way", I bought as an extra special treat for myself.  I've been going along dutifully writing every day without it having much of an effect on me externally, sometimes having to force myself because I've had nothing to say and at other times a little disappointed that the three pages...
