I found this little blue book on our travels this past week. One of the awesome things about it is, it was on clearance! So not only did I get some inspiration for writing but also saved a buck or two! I hope you enjoy this “series” so to speak. I purchased it and by the end of that day I had written out two posts! That’s a pretty sweet deal I think!
Does writing change you? How does writing make you a better person?
The answer to the first question is yes. Just a simple yes.
The answer to the second question, in my eyes does make me a better person. I think that it makes me accountable, especially since I am a blogger. When I write for a blog post I am opening myself up to what could be the world so to speak. My following is on the smaller level and I’m ok with that. Mostly because I write at Pushing Forward with Grace for growth, writing practice, and to inspire. When I write I am openly honest. I don’t hide the yucky dirty sad or angered feelings of my life. I write about the possibilities and the opportunities right along with the challenges and failures. There are still personal things I will never write about but the things I do write are honest and true.
Writing is a therapy for me just as cooking is. I did not really realize this until after I began writing here at PFWG. Oh sure, I’ve always written for myself and even over at In Between the Sunsets of Life, but it’s totally a great thing now. I feel to my bones I can learn so much by opening my heart and feelings and in turn it might help someone else in the scheme of things!
One year ago I was so very opposite emotionally than what I am now. Writing here hasn’t been the only solution but is an integral part I feel. It taken me through a thought process and made me feel secure and vulnerable all at the same time. Facing my fear and encompassing my successes.
Writing changes me with almost each post I write. It changed me to be a better me.
Grace is a gift,
