| Writing as a therapy |
|So, I quit that job that was destroying my hands last week. After a few days of feeling sorry for myself, and waiting for the swelling to go down and my thumbs to have feeling in them again, I had my fit and thought about writing again. Writing has been the Great Healer for me the last two years since the loss of my children and the divorce. I wrote to heal from emotional pain and now I'm writing to heal from physical pain. I wrote my book 2 years ago, under the alias, and it went nowhere. Maybe it was meant just for me, who knows. But getting it out there was also very important to me - because it can help so many people to know that they are not alone, if they living with a huge secret, or they're married or dating, and going through domestic violence or living in fear of a tyrant. |
About six months ago, I came up with the idea for a childrens book, and sat on the idea, did nothing. But it planted a seed and we all know what that does. It waits in the dark til the right moment Last night I wrote it! Like, from beginning to end, and it poured out of me with no effort. I jotted down notes for illustrations which a friend is helping me with. It requires a visit to Florida (YES) which geeze - I am so sad I have to do LOL just kidding.
Writing is a wonderful alternative therapy... if your depressed and considering a pill to help you, please try a natural remedy. And give it time, and don't give up no matter what you do.

Yes I agree, I'm a semi-illiterate carpenter/joiner who wouldn't know the first thing about writing but here I am today with my own blog with over fifty posts.
I was told by a clairvoyant awhile ago this is how I will develop spiritually. Writing down ones own thoughts & experiences can help with in all areas of ones life I believe.
Acceptance of all leads to true spiritual awareness.
