There is something powerful, refreshing, and freeing when we put our thoughts to paper. Writing is a beautiful art. Unfortunately, a lost art in our culture. Writing takes time, effort, discipline, and vulnerability. It opens doors to areas in our life we hide, suppress, and try to ignore. Writing is a release. A release from the whirlwind of life. A release from the confines of confusion within our own mind, heart, soul. A release from conformity. A release from the expected, the status quo, the pressure from expectations. Writing is expression. Expression of who we truly are, who we truly want to become.
