For the Love of Writing

Writing to me has always been an amazing centering as well as outlet for my thoughts. It centers me and allows me to organize my thoughts as well as just get them out of my head. I have one of those minds that does not stop. Ever. Even sleeping, I cannot remember a single night of my life that wasn’t filled with dreams, most of them in color. My mind collects everything and analyzes it and over-analyzes it more and then reanalyzes it in case it missed something then tries to make sense of that and then decide how to apply it and then what to keep and what to forget, how to use that to help people, who needs that information and who is better served never knowing and on it goes. This is the mind I was blessed with by my Creator. So here I am with this ever thinking, imaginative, visionary, visual, artistic mind full of ideas and inventions and real life stuff in there somewhere too. And I was introduced to music, thankfully, by my Mom first and then many people since and taught piano and writing music. Then, in high school, Mrs. Hendricks, my teacher, told us to journal every day as part of our assignment. Being the perfect student (lol), I dutifully obeyed and realized that writing things down got them out of my head. It calmed my mind some, something very difficult to do. And I found it brought some order to the chaos of my thinking, making it flow more deliberately and purposefully to help people who may have similar thinking or may not. If people can be helped by my words, why on earth would I keep them to myself. And if I am the only one who is helped, it is still worth picking up the pen, or typing into the computer nowadays. lol I am honored to have been shown these gifts that have helped me so much. So if you have it in you to write, you definitely should write. There are so many benefits. Even if it is just a journal only you see, you remember where you were at this time and it may benefit you later. Next, I will be focusing more on my art so I can maybe have one night that isn’t full of colorful penguins dancing in the clouds. lol 🙂
