Yesterday I was sitting in my room and I glanced at my bureau and saw my pretty blue journal that has been gathering dust for quite a while. It had been such a long time since I put pen to paper and it felt like the right time to start again. So I picked up my favorite purple fountain pen and opened the familiar pages. It was like getting reacquainted with an old friend.
Writing is one of the best ways to express your thoughts and feelings because once you get everything down on the page, your mind is free to be filled with new thoughts and ideas. Sometimes we write to express certain things that we cannot express any other way and sometimes we write because if we don’t, we will simply burst!
It is a great comfort knowing that what you write down is yours, and yours alone. They are your words, your ideas, your inspirations. Just like reading a book, we allow our imaginations to take over and bring us somewhere else. I feel that this applies to both writing books and simply writing in your journal.
I admire writers. Mostly because without them we would have no books, and then where would we be? But I truly admire how they can create something so incredible from something so simple as a blank page and an idea.
See you real soon (and keep writing!),
P.S. Have a very happy Thanksgiving everyone!
