Improving Your Life – Week 2

So last week we were challenged by Cheryl Richardson in her book “Life Makeovers” to look at the past year, make a list of our accomplishments and then give ourselves a pat on the back for our wonderful achievements.
This week we are going to step forth and do something else.I must confess that I haven’t read this chapter until this morning so I’m as clueless as those doing this along with me about what our next step is…… Continue reading

Why I write

ImageMy phone just pinged at me. Upon checking it I found that I had been ‘tagged’ in a shared photo on FB by a colleague and in the comments was written “Keep on blogging Suz”. This colleague is on leave right now but I caught up with her in the local supermarket the other afternoon. After exchanging pleasantries, I told her my speed bump news. This morning, I find this. I am just blown away by her thoughtfulness.

So why do I write?

I write to share experiences so that others will know they are not alone. Too often when we are going through hiccups in life, we feel isolated and alone believing that we are the only ones who have ever felt this way and there is no way out.

I write to extend my hand to others. Because no one should feel alone.

I write to get the jumble in my head into some sort of coherent order. (and free up some space in there for more jumbled thoughts).

I write because as my fingers dance over the keyboard, it is music to my ears. It is such a satisfying sound.

I write because I can’t stand to see a page devoid of words. Yep, love those stores filled with empty books just begging to be filled with words. I’d love a Typo gift card for Christmas (hint hint family).

I write because by writing, I am healing.

I write to learn more about myself. It’s amazing what comes out with the right prompts.

I write so that I can leave a legacy for my children. Not sure if they’ll ever want to read my ramblings but you never know.

I write because it is a blessing to be able to share with others. I am blessed by all of you on WordPress.

I write because I can!

Have a blessed day 🙂
