Tuesdays are (still) for Poetry.

early morning with
E.B. White and twinkle lights
stillness, peace and joy

For years, I’ve started my day with coffee and the computer … and not much peace and joy. Heading into 2018, I’m going to change that!

  1. I love this. I have likewise made a conscious decision to have a different focus in the morning, one that does not involve the PC. It is a much better way to start the day.

  2. I love this time of year when we begin to look ahead. On my list is to turn off the computer earlier in the evening instead of scrolling my way to bedtime.

  3. I got rid of Facebook on my phone two months ago. The difference in my state of mind is incredible! Unplugging is a very good thing! XO

  4. A great choice for a book! My mornings are quiet…coffee and sometimes knitting, sometimes something else (writing to a friend)…this week just sitting and gazing at our Christmas tree. Colin sometimes texts me early and occasionally I check e-mail via my phone. But, it is my quiet time which I love (and need). I usually manage 45 minutes to an hour and then it's time to dry my hair, dress and run out the door to work. I almost never get on my computer at home these days and it is wonderful!

  5. Stillness, peace and joy all very good things, and an excellent way to head into 2018. I've disconnected quite a bit, but admit to checking headlines first thing just to make sure because it is such a crazy world. Maybe I just need more faith? : ) Whatever I lack it is a habit I would very much like to break.

  6. I've also introduced more non-online time into my life. No FB on my phone and much less computer time than when I was working. Life is so nice IRL. 🙂

  7. You've all got me thinking pretty hard about deleting FB from my phone as well! I have made an effort to not turn to the television immediately on weekend mornings and have found this to be a nice slow start to the day.

  8. nice 2018 goal! I start my day with coffee and journalling then praying but during the writing I'm checking my phone. Not cool. I should do this too!

  9. I could and have spent entire days in that mode…and loved every minute…and well, eventually I get 'roun to the other stuff…but I so love and appreciate the quiet and stillness…As I shared with Kym : "My basic problem is I enjoy mindfulness activities so very much that I need a firecracker to jumpstart me…"Enjoy your new habit…Cheers~
