I put an app on my iPad this week. It's called Brain Sparker and is a free creativity app. It's basically like a deck of cards which you shake the app to shuffle and then pick one at random. It's a mix of statements and questions and pictures, and while it doesn't spark anything for stories right now I've decided to use it to complete morning pages, which is something I've been trying to do consistently for a while but keep making excuses out of.
(Mostly that I'm tired. I'm frequently tired.)
So this morning it started me off with 'What would make you happiest?'
Way to start with the little questions there, BS. XD
After four pages of writing and wrangling and thinking, I narrowed it down to this:
1. To feel like I am more in control of my life.
2. To be able to trust my own judgement.
3. To be a better friend.
4. To be less afraid.
I'm going to talk to my counsellor about these when I go back to see him - which isn't until the week after next because I paid my tax bill and therefore cannot afford mental health this month. I also have started listing practical things I can do to achieve these states, but if anyone has any advice for working towards any of them, I am absolutely all ears. :D
In other news I went to see Civil War; my brief thoughts are under the cut. ( WAR, HUH. )
