“Soul is not about function; It’s about beauty, form, and memory.” —Julia Cameron

- Day 20 Exercise: Purpose
What is function, without form? And since we’re delving into self and source and soul on this 28-day journey we need to continue building a fluid sense of implementation. On the tails of yesterday’s assessment where we went inward, now we must map out a plan of purpose. What are we doing? What do we want? How can we give and grow and thrive? Take today to reflect.
Take today to reflect. Just reflect on the word “purpose.” Do you know your purpose? Are you living it?
The Artist’s Way is another wonderful book I read twenty years ago. That’s long before I began sharing my words publicly or even thought I had any value to share. It is a wonderful book filled with inspiration and insight and most likely propelled me to take the next step that led to the next and the next that eventually got me writing and sharing those words. It’s probably time I reread the book myself.
- Day 20 Create: Past Poem
Feel free to share a poem from your past. Any style. How does it feel when you read it today? Do you still align with the narrative? The flow? Does it still resonate with you, or have you changed? Just a little exercise in self-awareness and checking in.
Here is my creative work as a result of today’s exercise:
This one definitely describes the place I am in. . . except I no longer drink dairy cream (lol). I quit dairy and switched to plant-based milk, by the way, I feel much better for the change. Whatever works for you. That’s all that matters.
Love and Ink,
I invite you to share your poems in the comment section below or link to a blog or personal website. Read and comment on others. Introduce yourselves. Get involved. I’m excited to see what all you lovely souls have created.
Time to check in:
- Have you been mindfully breathing?
- Running gratitude?
- How’s your self-talk?
- Are you running affirmations?
See you back here tomorrow with another day of Self-Love.
