the need to write

In Thoughts on 3 February, 2012 at 1:33 am

sometimes, when my soul has experienced a writing hiatus, i begin to feel its bodily effects. restlessness. anxiety. a tangle of thoughts that want to be woven with words tie knots in my mind.

a wise woman once told me to listen to my body. at the time, i was making a difficult decision to walk away from an¬†indispensable¬†income. she advised me to ask my body questions and listen to its answers. “body, should i quit my job?” within weeks, i had resigned.

and so i ask myself, “body, why do you need me to write?” and my body replies –

I am answering a call. I was designed to write. When you write, our soul thrives.

and so i listened to my body.

i wrote this post – no, i created this blog – because i need to write. and without you, my imagined audience, i will not find my voice.

  1. Wow honey. I only see this now…

    Your audience is always greater than you think it is-your words are never lost-someone is always listening.
