Your Sanctuary

My desk, my sanctuary

Is there a place that is yours, just yours, where you can think, alone, and be in peace? This could be a place where you are free to dream, contemplate the upcoming day, work, meditate ... it's yours and yours alone. Wherever that place is, spend fifteen minutes in it, uninterrupted, preferably at the start of your day. There you can be in quiet reflection. Think of all the things you are grateful for, do your daily affirmations, plan your day or simply relax and enjoy a moment's peace.

The above is my sanctuary as well as my place of work. Many things I treasure including a fresh flower or two from my garden surrounds it.

I am a writer and I write in my sanctuary. It supports me with the things I treasure: my favorite books, my resource books, art and pictures.

Where is your sanctuary?


  1. For years I sat on my bed with an exercise ball behind my back and wrote on my laptop. It's a bright and clean room and I enjoy the quiet there. When it's football season I keep the door shut so not to hear all the noise from the tv. I do have a nook in a corner of the front room, but that is for my artwork. My sewing machine, paints and other supplies are all there.

    Sometimes when stuck, I'll just take a pen and a pad of paper to noodle around in Starbucks or other spots. Swimming in the local gym also helps with inspiration.

  2. Thanks for the comment April. It's great that you have found the pathways to your personal inspiration. It comes to us when we least expect it and , for me, I always have a pen and paper handy. Keep writing, feel free to join the blog as I continue to write motivational messages for writers, especially, but for all of us humans as well.
