For My Sanity

NonWriting Writers


Nearly everyday when I come to work, I look for some type of motivational message to send to our team.  In the process of doing so, I came across the above image.  From first sight, it refused to let me go.

There are so many thoughts that flow through my head that I never put down on paper.  My initial goal with this blog was to post daily.  However, this is my first post since October.  With that being said, I must do better.

For the sake of my sanity, I will be utilizing several avenues of expression and communication going forward.  My goal is to bring a positive light to our community and culture.  As a writer, I feel that our job is to be the voice of the people, expressing what they want to express, but can’t seem to find the words to do so.  I plan to use my gift to be that voice.  

The Evolution  – At times, writing can be a torturous process.  There are different reasons for different writers.  For me, oft times I write with a filter, which causes an internal conflict.  Writing is supposed to be a means of liberation.  Writing should permit the voice to say whatever they need to say, however it needs to be said.  That is easy to do with fictional work.  However, when one is expressing their true self, one takes into consideration the feelings of others.  I’ve reached a point where I can’t do that anymore.  That’s not to say that I am out to hurt anyone with what I write.  That is to say however, that I have to be true to myself and my craft.  Anything else would be a was of time.

With that said, I hope you enjoy what’s to come.  My prayer is that my readers will gain something useful that will help them in their journey.  May blessings, peace, happiness, and the achievements of dreams overwhelm you!

Love you, be blessed – AWS
