Write. Write for yourself, write for others. For peace of mind, for shaking others’ minds.
Write about what you know, what you love, what inspires you, what makes you giddy. Write what you don’t know and need to learn, what you despise, what drags you into depression, what fills you with despair.
Write your pain into a beautiful bouquet of triumph, and write your victories into hope, help, and caution for others.
Write the images in your mind that keep you up at night, stunning you with their beauty, power, and intensity, but refusing to be channeled through a brush onto a canvas. Write what you cannot draw, what cannot be captured by a photograph or video.
It doesn’t matter what you write; it matters only that you write.
Write when you are full of words, but most importantly, write when your words have run out and you feel you have nothing left to give. For in that moment of emptiness the Divine can step in and wield your nothingness, shaping it into something you could never create on your own.
Every Friday bloggers from around the globe gather to silence the inner critic and write for five minutes without fear. If you’re interested in joining us, link up here. We’d love to have you.
