I write because writing is a form of art and can be beautifully expressed. I write because it helps me connect with myself; I find it therapeutic.
I write to clear my head on days when I have so much going on. I write to relieve myself of stress. I write to relive beautiful memories.
I mediate daily and I write while I do so. I love the way I’m able to pour out my soul on a piece of paper. I think writing is a beautiful form of communication regardless of what language it is written in.
I love the art of brevity. I write to connect with nature, with people and the universe as a whole. Besides photography, I think writing is the second best thing I love.
I find writing to be the best outlet when I’m angry; I tend to get very creative.
I write to challenge myself. I write because besides being a mental activity, I also find it refreshing and liberating.
The weather is just perfect. I decide to run errands; I go to the mall with the intention of buying green tea.
More than an hour later, I come home with the following: a pretty grey knit sweater from Zara (I couldn’t resist), a novel by John Grisham ( I thought it’d be a good book to read on my summer vacation), four muesli bars, air freshener, an acne cream from the pharmacy (doctor’s prescription – the first one is almost finished) and carrots!
All I did was make a mental note of what I needed to buy (for pete’s sake, it’s just green tea!), dash in and out before I got carried away, then I got to the mall and remembered every other thing but the green tea. Story of my life.
