I write because I need to let my feelings flow. Everybody who writes on this earth doesn’t do it to become a famous author. Most often writing is for a personal experience, for personal joy, for personal discovery.
One of my friends recently shared what a strange world it would have been if everybody who wrote was a famous author. Would the world be left with any forests? How would the global ecosystem behave? Moreover, won’t the readers be overwhelmed by so many books for sale and they would probably stop reading altogether!
I have known writing as a process of rejuvenating self-thoughts.
During my teenage years, I filled each journal I bought or received as a gift to myself. By the end of each year, I used to sit and review all my flowing emotions and feelings. I discovered how I was growing better and better with each passing life experience. No doubt, I had the best teenage years, any parents could have ever imagined with their children.
That was the period, for the first time I realized the power of journal writing. Writing is like streams that flow in the river letting your thoughts pass by and not letting them stay rotten in your heart and brain.
Journaling keeps you emotionally healthy
Treat journal writing as therapy. There are so many thoughts in our mind which often make their places without any need. They keep sitting there like garbage. By writing, we need to let this garbage go. We need to get rid of all the unwanted clutter in our brain by barter it for the second thoughts. The thoughts that are more useful, more relevant.
It is a process of cleansing. Keeping your home and heart clean are the steps towards being emotionally healthy. In this way, we get space for brighter and happier things in life. This adds so much positivity to the way of living.
Writing is a discovery
Writing gives you a very powerful place. At times, it lets mind reach the right decision. It is like finding solutions to your own problems. You might be surprised what comes out – intuitive insights, the secrets of your subconscious mind and answers.
I read somewhere that it is amazing how often the root of a problem is uncovered by journaling. It’s as if with every word you write, you delve deeper into your subconscious mind, unearthing the treasures that are waiting to be found.
So here we go. What are your thoughts on it? Why do you write?
