"The positive thing about writing is that you connect with yourself in the deepest way, and that's heaven. You get a chance to know who you are, to know what you think. You begin to have a relationship with your mind." ~ Natalie Goldberg
I think this is a great quote!
What I find happening is what I wrote about months ago, no longer rings true for me.
That's what is so great about journaling and blogging. Without written testament of where I was all those days ago I wouldn't be seeing where I am today.
I'm finding that little by little the things that used to push my buttons about life, no longer have that affect on me. Anger has turned into Love. Frustration has turned into Forgiveness. Impatience has turned into Faith.
With each day I am letting go of the old ways of dealing with life and opening myself up to new understandings.
It's exciting really. To look back at where I was and feel the anger and sadness that was living within me and know that today those feelings over those issues are no longer there.
To be honest, it is my hope for every writer that they will be writing differently, seeing differently and feeling differently month after month. Those are the truest signs that you and I are making progress in our individual journey's. And yes, I have very far to go, we all have very far to go.
I write the way I live my life, from my heart. If in my heart I have conflict you are going to read about it here. If in my heart I am seeing a new truth about a situation you are going to read about it here.
We cannot see the light if we have not allowed ourselves to admit the dark.
