Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

I sat to do my daily Brain Dump which Julia Cameron calls Morning Pages, and realized it had been 3 months since I had sat down to write these and there was a LOT that wanted to be expressed. I would never generally share these personal brain dumps but I felt that many of us are experiencing the same things in one way or another and it might be relatable and helpful in some way.

Please know I am not looking for sympathy or a pity party here in anyway shape or form, as I am blessed. I like you, am human, doing the best I can and I am bumbling along just like we all are, and I always have a choice and I choose to grow from my daily lessons that show up in my path. I learn as much from my clients and friends as they learn from me and more from my mistakes than wins. So my friends, please know I would love to hear what you personally connect with when you listen, if you would like to comment.

Speaking of “Spilling Words”. my poem The Lone Sunflower was accepted on Spillwords and is coming out June 4th which I’m thrilled about. I will post it on my blog Monday June 6th since I don’t post on weekends. I can’t wait to share it with you.


I’ve made a audio to give your eyes a rest if you prefer along with the written words, if you prefer to read.

5/28/22

Sitting I notice my back talking to me with a message of what I’m not sure. Slow down comes to mind. You can only do one thing at a time.You are NOT Ghandi or Buddha or God, you can NOT change the world, change others, stop war, famine, child’s rights, the environment, only yourself.

Save you, that’s the best I can do and yet I spiral downwards in the sea of Abis as I brew my coffee knowing my 87 year old dad is sick and might have Covid, my mom is overwhelmed with the recent death of my step father. My FIL fell and is in lockdown at his retirement center with 25 that just came down with Covid, the wedding, the construction, the mistakes, that keep arising, costing a pound of flesh, and the list goes on and on.

Nothing important and everything important, with a finite window of time in the day.
And then there is my book, I do what to write, my blog which keeps me from my book. My head is empty and yet full, crammed with worry and angst. Waiting in line with blundering mistakes and not enough staff to wait on you because no-one wants or can afford these jobs any more and companies are trying to just stay afloat.

Getting in my self care feels like another obligation and necessity of life rather than a joy of feeding my soul. I sit in a quandary of feeling blessed and feeling cursed for this rich life I have created of demands where I am needed and yet, I could walk away from them all. Stroll down the beach and never come back. People do you know. I could invent a very cool story and then escape but escape to where?

The bombings of shelled out bodies, starvation, pollution? I need to write for the love of again. I need to just be, I need to relax, let the tension go, I need to not be needed. I need to have people to keep their agreements but I’ve no control.
I need, I need, I need way too much which is just an ounce of space to breathe and with that, tears flow down my cheeks, realizing how little I give to myself and how blessed I am that I actually have a choice.

And then I stop and wait, and just see what comes . Broken with despair. Could I just be, just be, be free? and I cry some more because I gave up freedom when I signed on the dotted line and took an oath to my country and God to be the best I could be. To show up everyday and be honest and fair, loving and caring, work smart, cross my t’s and dot my i’s, have patience, work smart and cross my I’s, know life truly is an illusion, strive for world peace with clean air and food for all, but you failed me or did I fail me because I truly could have done more?

You did not up-stand what we are all striving for as we watch destruction and breath taken away one by one in corruption and greed for those in power that refuse to see . We are all fighting the same fight gasping for the same air, while the slaughter house is full of blood and bigotry.

Wow, this is what happens when you don’t write everyday and words spill on the page from head to heart then hand as I quill my feelings and spill my sorrow and joy on the page.

On another note; Happy Birthday to my mom who is one of the strongest woman I know. She is not only beautiful, loving caring, smart and kind but was one of the highest paid woman 50 years ago as a sales agent in a moving and storage company without a college degree, Her stories like all of our is rich with color and inspiration. She just retired about 3 years ago when the company shut down which was perfect timing so she could be with my stepdad and tend to his every need.

Her favorite line is I go to bed in peace and wake in joy. She actually doesn’t sleep much at all but I always appreciate her positive mind set.

Annual Birthday lunch last year. We will be going again on Friday

Speaking of strong woman, Gabriela has invited us to a discussion on Wounds I healed: Poetry of Strong Woman (see the details below)

Have a blessed day, take moments to feel your breath simply breathe you. When you find you are holding your breath, clenching, rushing and tense: Stop for a minute and slow down and take 3 deep breaths, breath and let go. Clear your mind as best as you can and come to a word or an image that brings you peace. You may find you may need to do it several times a day. Do it! It’s as simple as that. Thanks for visiting today and may you too sleep in peace and wake in joy like my mamma says.

Love and Light,

💖

Cindy

About half of this sounds like I wrote it, Cindy. I am trying to do all the things I should do and all of the things I want to do while I still have the capacity. But like many others, I am over-programed. It is really hard to know what to let go and what to keep. Wishing you peace and joy! <3 <3 <3

I absolutely loved listening to your “brain dump.” Your brain dump is more meaningful and perfectly said than things I generally plan out lol. I could really relate and I also think about what it would be like to be completely free with no attachments to anyone or anything. And so sorry about your parents and FIL, it’s so hard when family members are going through things, but I’m sending lots of positive energy your way 💕💕

Your featured image expresses how I feel perfectly.💗 A brain dump is a great idea. You have many important irons in the fire Cindy. That would stress me out. Stick with it and things will work out for you. If you decide to fall off the grid I hope you’ll keep blogging.😊

Your reflections are so powerful, Cindy, and yes, relatable! “I need not to be needed” was the first line to really resonate. But also your despair and helplessness at how cruel and crazy the world seems right now. How can it be so terribly bad except by the choices of a few who really don’t give a you-know-what about other, those who believe life is cheap and compassion is weakness. Be strong, my friend, and keep caring…, especially for yourself. We need good people. <3 <3

Girlfriend, first of all, I am wishing a wonderful and Happy Birthday to your mother. 🎈🎂🥳 Secondly, take a deep breath, maybe two…oh hell just inhale three times sistah! 😉 Now, about this brain dump thingy, girl you sure did have a lot of shit to dump! 💩 I mean, I truly give you mad respect for admitting that eventhough we try to be superwomen (wink-wink), our wings tend to get weak at times when stress pours over us like a dump truck unloading a ton of dirt and burying our butts under all of it. 🚚🚛🚚

I know you aren’t a whiner, just a human being trying to do the best you can. I realize in my daily comings and goings that I try to do way too much, running with my internal stop-watch that keeps on ticking and counting down what I didn’t get done. But honey, what you aired out is a cleansing for all of the stuff that is on your plate, in your saucer, stored in your pots and pans, overflowing from your coffee cup, and laying under the covers waiting for you to jump in bed. 😲🛏🥱

Do yourself a favor. Now that you have done a brain dump (that sounds kinda gross Cindy 😝), it’s time for some spiritual healing. Maybe you do need to walk away to someplace remote for a minute, where you can simply yell your ass off. 🗣🗣🗣 Now, your throat might be sore, but just carry a bottle of wine with you and that will soothe your savage irritation! 🍷 But seriously, take your foot off of the pedal and just remember, you can’t do everything, you can’t cure everyone and you can’t be everywhere. 😱 If you hadn’t done all of this dumping, you would be one toe away from insanity.

Girlfriend, we simply can’t have that happen because we need our daily dose of a healthy FUNyay Cindaaayyyy! 😍🤗🤩 Just sayin’ dawwwlinkkkk! Sending you lots of love, hugs, and smooches! 🤗💖😘

Warm hugs and smooches are coming your way girlfriend. You are still standing my sweetness and you are one tough cookie! 🍪🍪🍪 Yet, you know how to wind down, but are times when we have to be reminded to do just that. This too shall pass, and then there will be another set of issues rolling in like a Level 5 tornado. 🌪

Of course, that bottle of wine is a really good helpmate! 🍷🍷🍷 LMBO 🤣🥳😂 Hugs and smooches Mommy Nature! 🌷💐🌹

So sweetie pie, I am counting on you to roll on the river like Tina Turner! And, by the way, I love your exercise I shall incorporate into my weekly routine, “hand-to-mouth bicep curls! 🤪😝🤭🤭🤭 Girl, you are a riot! I needed to read your message this morning before going outside to mow the lawn! LOL 🤩💐😍

Have a FANtabulous day and make it FUNyay, ok Cindaaaayyyyyy!!!! 🥰💖😘🦋😉

This is totally relatable to me, Cindy. Once my management guru had said, “You can’t change the world, what’s in your hand is to change yourself.” This is the mantra I follow religiously even now.
Everybody has brain dump, but one should know how to unburden it, like you. I’m happy that you’re blessed with a beautiful family including your mom. And congratulations once again for your poem 🎉💐💖🥀

There shall always be things which we will have no control over, and a lot of of our lives are spent coming to terms with this fact. I especially related to that part about self care; it is beginning to feel ike a chore to me as well. Your words have immense power, Cindy!

I really needed to read and hear this. “How little I give to myself…how blessed I am, knowing I have a choice.” Feel the exact same way, especially with writing. Could barely speak and connect to any human soul over it, but nowadays I’m learning that it’s because I’ve neglected writing, what I love and live for while stressing what I can’t control. Yet, it’s so common of an issue, we’re all dealing with it. So common but so hard to figure out. Lovely piece, many prayers out to you and your family ❤🙏

““I go to bed in peace and wake in joy“ – I believe it to be a deeply rich and fulfilling life cultivated to be able to do this, and perhaps an only worthy goal to have, for the rest to fall in place. Truly beautiful you and your mother Cindy. Happy Birthday Wishes to her.
I had started morning pages for some months and the dump felt like a intense flood. I realize the value in the exercise, love Julia Cameron’s work but didn’t get back to it after suddenly stopping at some point. Thank you for sharing your morning page with us – there is so much life within and without we wake up to.

I worked my way through Julia Cameron’s book 22 years ago and used it to start my journal, Cindy, which I have maintained ever since. At an average of 500 words per day, I estimate over 4 million words. A lot. 🙂 At least I haven’t needed any mental counseling. And the entries are fun to go over on occasion. I just jumped back to June 4, 2013 and discovered that I introduced my grandsons to slingshots on that day. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Sorry about your dad, Covid has been close to the straw that has broken the camel’s back. –Curt

I’ve had an on-and-off relationship with morning pages, and I can attest that I feel more ‘unblocked’ when I do it regularly. My morning pages aren’t as legible as yours though. They’re mostly random sentences that don’t relate to each other, like:

I hate that lady for no reason at all. Why? My stomach is grumbling. Almond milk don’t forget. I’m bored.

Anyway, thanks so much for sharing, because I always enjoy posts on journalling or mind exploration. Here’s another book on diary keeping that I’ve found valuable lately: The New Diary by Tristine Rainer.

Anyway, thanks for this post!

Ah, I just started reading Julia Cameron’s the Artist’s way and found the concept of morning pages. I’m still pondering writing them as the early morning is my writing and exercise time, taking off time to write 3 pages is my whole actual novel-writing time, and I can’t wake an hr earlier😭. I always miss the wp online discussions and podcasts. I have no notification system for them😥.It is a very enlightening post, this. Thank you.

That, is actually a great idea. I can write about my morning, what I have done and what I’ve failed to, how awesome I am😅, and how I’ve got all the magic in me😂, I can write about how my writing is going, how work is going, and what to look forward to in the evening classes. I’m sure I can squeeze a crush in there somewhere, if I get one that is.😂
