It’s for anyone who has something to say…

Writing down your thoughts on paper with a pen as you express your deep feelings is a great way to relax.

  • It improves your mood if you had a bad day.
  • Your stress level will decrease as you pour out your concerns on the page.
  • What a wonderful way to meditate without the usual methods.
  • Helps with depression and anxiety.
  • It will allow you to focus and see life more clearly.
  • This is your quiet time which allows you to be calm.
  • When you are angry…write it’s a great way to find some relief.
  • It encourages us to be more creative.
  • Writing is also influential on how we think.

Every situation you find yourself in gives you an opportunity to write. It’s therapeutic and can lead to a more positive outlook on life.

Nancy Olson, a Forbes life writer confirmed writing by hand is a powerful tool for learning. It also increases neural activity in certain sections of the brain.

When I had to study in college, the only way I would remember anything was to write it down.

For some reason my brain connected more to the information when I actually took the time to write rather than just using memorization.

Amazingly after all these years, this is my go to skill if I need to learn anything.

Try it! It actually works because you are not only using your brain, you are using your writing to remember the information.

I have been writing by hand for many years and I can definitely attest to the fact that it’s very rewarding.

Do you remember when people actually wrote letters to one another?

It may be you were to young to remember or it didn’t happen in your time.

It was a time of innocence meaning we did not have the technology that’s available today.

People who wanted to communicate in a meaningful way to friends, family or lovers, wrote and mailed letters.

We wrote, wrote and wrote some more and was very excited when we received a letter back in the mail.

Our hearts were on display in pen and ink and it felt good. We enjoyed the art of writing.

Of course if you received a bad letter, well you know what I mean…

Remember the movie Miracle on 34th street, the people wrote letters to Santa to get their point across to the Judge.

WHY DO WE WRITE?

So my point is this, writing is another way to express yourself. It is for anyone who wants to find another way to destress.

Don’t forget to write…

It’s not just for writers…Yes anyone who chooses can write.

Before getting out of bed to start my day, I find myself reaching for my journal to write about anything that concerns me

These past two years has been very trying and I am so thankful that writing has given me a way to say exactly what’s on my mind without being judged.

The ability to go deeper below the surface of my mind has given me time to examine my life while making positive changes.

It has been the most rewarding experience and helps me to relax before starting my day.

Our mind can become cluttered with thoughts we find very difficult to express with others.

But when you really allow yourself to let go by writing down your thoughts, its very liberating.

Hence the name, don’t forget to write because so many of us live our lives stuck in busyness.

We forget to take time to really get slow down and get to know who we are inside and out.

Taking time to open up to other possibilities and even finding answers to your most pressed questions could be found by allowing your mind to expand in another direction.

Writing might not be your thing, but its definitely a form of relaxation for those who would take the chance to explore it.

Even for the novice who is new to journaling, it will begin to change your life in more ways than one..

Writing is like meditation when you allow yourself to get lost in your thoughts, you would be surprised at what you learn.

By taking some time each day to write down your feelings, it will be very beneficial as you search within your soul for your life’s most pressing challenges.

IT’S VALENTINE’S DAY…WRITE A LOVE LETTER TO SOMEONE YOU LOVE. WATCH THEIR REACTION…

 

 

 

Why do we write?

Interesting-Pen-Quotes-17

I have asked myself that question so many times. Why do we write? When I saw this quote, my perspective as to why I write changed.

I believe we all have the ability to change the world. Picking up a pen to write your thoughts in order to inspire change, is just one way to help others take action.

Writing is a creative outlet for people who love to express themselves through the power of the written word. I started writing many years ago for my own benefit. When I was concerned about different aspects of my life, I used writing as an outlet to release the thoughts which consumed my mind.

However I learned a very important lesson as my writing developed, It’s not about me, but the power of the written word to encourage and help others.  My desire was also to share my experiences to reshape the way people think about themselves in relation to the world.

We all can learn from one another whether it’s through poetry, fiction and non fiction, biographies and self development books. Writing is an art form that can inspire change.

So, why do you write? Is it to educate, teach, share life’s lessons, or other reasons? To be honest, it really doesn’t matter as long as you are writing to be inspirational in some capacity. If you can get people to think about their world, and the role they play in it, your job is done.

Another reason why we write is our stinking thinking sometimes gets the best of us and we fall prey to all kinds of negative emotions. The impact is great as it reduces our ability to move forward even for a short time.

Through our thoughts and emotions, writers have the ability to impact our world. We all use different methods and way of getting your attention. However our reasons are vast and as a group, we have made a large dent in how people view their world.

Stop! Think for a moment and ask yourself one question. How can I use my writing to change the world?
