Writing is MY Therapy.

Monday, February 18, 2013

I have been a follower of Becky at From Mrs. to Mama for about 6 months now and she's seriously the cutest mama ever and a very talented writer. Always enjoy her posts and loved the Women Connect the first time and knew I had to participate again.

I love writing.

I love voicing my thoughts and opinions. It's my therapy.

When I type the keys and really get going...all the hurt, pain, love, frustration, happiness, joy, courage comes flowing out of my fingertips. It's exhilarating at times. Times when I don't hold back and let it loose. True therapy. My therapy.

I am able to share my thoughts and ideas here on my blog and I love that. I love that I can write something that everyone reads and possibly enjoys. Maybe they don't agree or like it but that's OK. It's my therapy.

Do I hold back some things? Yes. I try not to air too much dirty laundry out here in the public eye;) But I would be lying if I say I didn't have drafts of posts I sometimes write to get it all out but then thought maybe it's too raw. (I do have family and friends that read!) And it especially gets more real after some wine. It's therapy on top of therapy!

But some of the posts I do write, just my thoughts and my everyday life, I find that I have a comment on that someone relates to. And that's all you can ask for. To let someone else know that you feel it too. You get it too because this is what I'm going through. It is also a great time to find a support system through your readers and followers and your best blog friends :)

I know how I feel when I find that person that writes that post that makes me say, "well, OK then. She gets it. I feel that way too!" And you are no longer ashamed or unsure of your feelings.

Case in point? The last time I did Women Connect with Becky, I found women that had also lost their moms. And then you know, she gets it. She understands. And those are the bloggers you probably connect with the most. Blog friend therapy.

So at the end of the day, when I sit down to write my blog posts, it comes from within. And a side of wine.What I'm going through, feeling and just find funny or annoying.  I write for me, first and foremost, in hopes that my readers and followers enjoy it. And in the hopes that at the end of the day, I am truly writing what I believe in and giving myself my exhilaration.

Writing is my therapy.

  1. I am the same way... I write for me and sometimes I write drafts that I never post because it's just a place for me to discover my own thoughts!

    Thank you for your sweet words on my post today. So glad you were able to sneak in some ideas for Hawaii for your honeymoon! We actually leave for Hawaii again in a couple weeks, we are headed to Maui. Let me know if you have any particular questions :)
