Writing is important to me. Writing is my outlet to all of my thoughts and feelings. Without being able to write out my thoughts, I would not be able to function nearly as effectively as I am able to now.
I suppose that I should now clarify that it is creative writing like this that brings me happiness. I do not mind writing papers but I have a horrible time of trying to do the research for them. I get occupied and distracted very easily when trying to write papers. Of course, I am always able to get my papers done on time for their due dates, but I would much prefer to just write creatively.
When I first started writing on this blog I was scared and excited at the same time. It is something that I am proud of. The fact that I have kept writing since that summer day just shows how much of a special place it has in my life.
Not a whole lot of people in my life know that I even have a blog. I guess that I am just not super confident in my writing abilities. I know that I don’t have everything grammatically correct or maybe the things that I write are uninteresting. However, my perception of my abilities is not going to stop me from continuing to write.
I did not start this blog to share with others completely, I mostly created it as a way to look at how I have grown as a writer and just in general. Having people that read it is just a bonus to me. Thank you friends who do read this, I appreciate it! I realize that these blogs could make for a boring read as I am not much of a flowery writer.
I am feeling nostalgic right now about when I first started writing publicly like this. This past summer I had no idea that this would have turned into a frequent event. I could not have imagined how grateful I would be for taking the step and actually start a blog. As I think about what would make me stand out from other bloggers, I can’t really think of anything that truly sets me apart. I have always aimed to be honest and open in these posts. Obviously there are some things that are just for me that I do not share, but like I have mentioned before, this is an outlet for me.
Thanks for coming along this journey with me!
C’est la vie,
Ps. I usually listen to music while I write these… Today I am listening to a very fun soundtrack, and this song is beautiful:
