I discovered a new blog just yesterday, which does a prompt every Tuesday – so I am joining karen at finding the grace within
Here goes –
Why do I write?
Well I write because for me its freedom.
Freedom to express myself
Freedom to share whatever is on my mind ☺
My mind us always going even when I try to switch it off – swirling with a thousand thoughts and ideas, but sometimes I struggle to form the words.
But as I sit here now writing this I can hear the words in my head while I write – which feels awesome.
I am also someone who wears their heart on their sleeve – I am a super emotional person – however I am also really good at disguising things you know
But since starting my blog over a year ago it has allowed me to open up about past personal stuff.
Writing about subjects that are taboo – self harm, post natal depression, the way the media portrays perfection, anorexia
Were it not for my writing I don’t think I would talk about such things you know!
It allows me to bare my soul, to be an open book, not to be afraid to be myself.
So why do I write?
It gives me the chance to be who I am and to not be afraid.
I found this Sylvia Plath quote great
Have a great Saturday readers ☺
