Feeling stuck? Try my Sunday night #journal exercise: twenty words. #arttherapy

Feeling a bit scattered, stuck, like you’re treading water?  Trying to focus on the next step?

Based on Lynda Barry

Try this exercise I came up with for myself tonight:

Write 20 words that simply pop into your mind when you think about your “stuckiness”… Don’t hesitate.

Draw out a lined sheet of paper.

Rewrite the words and mark it as you contemplate each word and realize it’s OK to be stuck sometimes.  For those are the times we rest.  Open ourselves up to new chapters.

Don’t power walk. Saunter slowly in the sun, eating chocolate, and carry a blanket so you can take a nap. – SARK
