Still Not Writing

“…if I’m not writing, I’m not well. If I’m not writing, the world around me is slowly leached of its color. my senses are dulled. I am crabby with my husband, short-tempered with my kid, and more inclined to see small things wrong with my house (the crack in the ceiling, the smudge prints along the staircase wall) than look out the window at the blazing maple tree, the family of geese making its way across the driveway. If I’m not writing, my heart hardens, rather than lifts.” – Dani Shpiro, Still Writing

Two years ago, my chest was continually throbbing, as though my heart was beating outside of my chest. The weight of stress and anxiety controlled every aspect of my life.

I was in one of the deepest and darkest moments I have yet to experience.

Release Your Inner Ramblings

Writing is a major component of my self growth journey. It’s the foundation of being intentional.

Though, as much as I’d like to, I don’t write every single day. I set out to do so, absolutely, but with the longer summer days and beautiful weather we find ourselves outside longer, playing. Therefore my writing isn’t as consistent.

Lately, however, as I’ve been neglecting it it’s also what I’ve been needing most.
