Today’s daily blog will answer the questions – “Why Do I Write..? What Do I Write About..? & Where Do I Get My Inspiration For My Daily Writing..?”

img_2316Today in daily writing I get answering the above questions from a written pictured quote that I came across on the Facebook page Beauty Of Darknes – owner & author Brianna Vigil – https://m.facebook.com/sheseesbeautyindarkness & https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1009908224

Brianna Vigil’s pictured quote writes: –

“I write to say the things
I need to hear.
To be my own advice,
When I don’t have
Anyone near.
I write to tell myself that
I’ll make it someday.
To prove to myself,
That this will all be ok.”

By B. Vigil


So let’s proceed to look at the answers to these questions.

Why Do I Write..?

My reason that I started writing way back when I was in Primary School was purely educational… I think my love for writing started in the form of short stories.

When I was between the ages of 8 & 10 events that happened throughout these years gave me a need for an outlet to lay down my frustrations and inner pain.

I learned that writing in a diary and a notebook would give a voice of reason to my written words, my feelings and the thoughts that raced through my head… Lending an ear and a silent assurity that was very much needed.

I was able to write and write… telling my thoughts and feelings to an ear that didn’t respond with silly reasoning’s or misunderstood judgements… but yet it still offered up a comforting place that gave me the strength to carry on and make sense of my thoughts, feelings and soul felt pain.

I today write because I like how I feel after I have let out my inner frustrations in the form of my written or typed thoughts… I write today in order to give myself the gift of what I call “self-writing narrative therapy”…

Narrative Therapy – Narrative therapy identifies people as distinct from their problems and this can help people employ their own strengths to move toward change and growth.

Narrative therapy is a form of counselling that views people as separate from their problems. This allows clients to get some distance from the issue to see how it might actually be helping them, or protecting them, more than it is hurting them. With this new perspective, individuals feel more empowered to make changes in their thought patterns and behaviour and “rewrite” their life story for a future that reflects who they are, what they are capable of, and what their purpose is, separate from their problems.

Writing therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the act of writing and processing the written word as therapy. Writing therapy posits that writing one’s feelings gradually eases feelings of emotional trauma.

I bring both writing therapy and narrative therapy together in my own space of time, in my own personal allowance of personal writing time.

What Do I Write About..?

There are many things that I choose to write about when I do my daily writings. Some of the things that I write about are: –

  • Personal and interment letters… written but have no intentions of sending … offloading my words with people in mind…
  • Mixed Poetry
  • Memories of my family events and special days
  • Sometimes I write about my connections to written pictured quotes
  • Song Appreciation
  • Thoughts on my past or life’s events
  • Memories of friendships and family relationships
  • Sometimes I will write about things I am studying or learning
  • Sometimes I will write about the accomplishments of my we designing or blogging
  • Sometimes I will write about things in my past like friendships lost or loves of my yesterdays
  • I write about my inner emotions or of the things that weigh me down
  • Monthly accomplishments
  • Monthly to-do lists
  • Journaling
  • Daily 750words.com daily submissions and or writings.

The list does indeed go on, often the ideas for my daily writes just pop into my head.

Where Do I Get My Inspiration For My Daily Writing..?

My daily inspiration for my writing can come from anywhere… sometimes a song that I hear playing on the tv or radio is enough to get my thoughts flowing.
at other times it could be a written or spoken quote that could have me thinking up a written thought in the form of a poem or a daily piece of writing.
Seeing someone’s post on social media can inspire my thoughts to come out and write a response to what I have read.

Most often than not the inspiration to my writing is my life’s journey and or my past experiences… my loves, my heartbreaks or the experiences that have led me to where I am in both my physical and emotional worlds. Inspiration is definitely gained from my self-made family and of course to my hearts another half Steve… I love to write about our life and of the pride that we share of our kids.

All in all my writing is my lifeline, the very thing that keeps me sane and in touch with my inner self and my minds thoughts.

My mindset and the things that weigh me down are taken on in easier strides when my mind and heart are not being bogged down  by the inner demons that threaten to derail me…

After taking a few years off from my daily writing, I am very glad to find that it is just as I left it… an old friend with nothing more to do but to listen with an open heart and an empathetic ear.

“Writing lets me let go of the weight of the world that burdens me, freeing me from the volcano of thoughts and feelings that threaten to engulf me. When I write a sense of calm rises in me and delivers me to a place that enables me to fill the space in my mind that gets overwhelmed by my burdens and fills my heart with words that are a vision of my future in a redrawn positive light. The negative notes that do come through are focused more on how I have grown from the experiences rather than my need to dwell on these events and life experiences.”

My writing is my world and the escape that I seek in the many different stages of my days, years and life… there may never be any real reason for my writing… I may write today with a reason and tomorrow a my daily writings maybe nothing more than a mindless thought… with no meaning, depth or reasoning for its written words.

“I write to say the things
I need to hear.
To be my own advice,
When I don’t have
Anyone near.
I write to tell myself that
I’ll make it someday.
To prove to myself,
That all will be ok.”
