*This list is an exercise from Julia Cameron’s book, The Right to Write. She suggests keeping a list of 100 things you love in your wallet or desk so that when stress or drama strike you can pull your list out and connect with an inner sense of well-being. The reason? Stress and drama drain the creative spirit. The only drama should be on the page. Still working on my list but thought I’d start it here.

There is something nice and restoriative about dwelling on all the things you love.
