Time and Space: Reviewing a Room

In It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again: Discovering Creativity and Meaning at Midlife and Beyond, writer Julia Cameron describes how to gain a greater sense of creative freedom…by looking at our surroundings with fresh eyes.

“Allow yourself a few minutes to sit in a place in your home where you may have been “too busy” to sit before.
Look around this spot and really see your home with a fresh perspective.

  • What do you appreciate?
  • What do you wish to change?

“If you see many things you wish to change or feel overwhelmed with emotion when doing this exercise, don’t worry: your morning pages will help you prioritize and process these insights.”

The space I sat in is my home office which at the moment is a mess…so clutter I dread going up there. Still, I’ve decided it’s time to begin making this room a place I love. One that supports me and my work.

  1. May your office be transformed, step by step, into a room you love hanging out in, that inspires you, that supports you in doing wonderful work, Judy.

      Thanks for your kind wishes, Marilyn! I remember doing the organizing class with you a few years ago. I’ve found that the class has helped me a lot when it comes to organizing information (digital). Now I want my physical space to feel as good as my virtual space.
