Shut Up and ___: things you can do!

I’ve told you before that I often write my blog during a  Shut Up and Write group.

Today’s the day. Synchronistically, I was in a call this morning, where someone said that she was spending time shutting up so that she could listen. And it came to me: there are lots of things that we could shut up and do. This idea of quiet time sure appeals to the introvert in me.

Here are some of the ideas I came up with:

  • Shut up and draw
  • Shut up and read
  • Shut up and walk
  • Shut up and research
  • Shut up and pet a dog (or cat, or horse, or rabbit)

And then, of course, I thought, “What about color? What inspiration do specific colors offer?” me?”  So here’s that list:

  • Red: Shut up and ground (hug a tree)
  • Pink: Shut Up and Forgive
  • Coral: Shut up and volunteer, get my hands busy
  • Orange: Shut up and listen to your ancestors
  • Gold: Shut up and look inside for today’s wisdom
  • Yellow: Shut up and look at happy memories or photos or cat videos
  • Olive: Shut up and let go of grievances and regrets
  • Green: Shut up and garden
  • Turquoise: Shut up and play
  • Blue: Shut up and plan, dream
  • Royal blue: Shut up and pray
  • Magenta: Shut up and bake (for someone else)
  • Deep Magenta: Shut and vision board
  • Clear: Shut up and swim
  • White: Shut up and clean

And finally,

In my book, Pearl Harbour & the Explosions wins the Shut Up and Dance contest, but that’s because in my mind New Wave and New Age always win.

In the meantime, remember these things: You are loved. We are all loved. Let’s all be kind. And in all things – progress, not perfection!

Love and light,
