Writing as Healing

To me, writing is medicine.

To me, writing is medicine.

It’s like a warm cup of tea or a soft blanket draped around your shoulders in a moment you need it most.

 

It’s also the crisp breeze or burst of fresh air on a cool fall day.

Or the warm sunlight as it streams through the window and puts a smile across your face.

 

To me, writing is everything.

It’s how I explore, it’s how I learn.

 

It’s how I uncover what’s important to me.

It’s how I discover who I am.

 

I get to know myself, I support myself, I learn from myself.

I grow, I expand, I contract, and I grow.

 

It’s all a process.

And writing makes it possible.

 

Writing gives us a map. A journey for the excavation of all that matters most to our souls.

 

In fact, it’s how I connect to my very soul.

 

I find her on the page.

That’s where I know she’ll always be there for me– to guide me, to lead me back home again whenever I get lost. To offer comfort and insights and grace.

 

She’s there for me no matter what–

Through thick and thin

Through peace and storms.

 

She’s always there waiting.

 

All I need to do is pick up a pen and find a blank page

To write.

 

And just like that,

I come home again.

 

What helps you find your way home again?

I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
