Writing has a way of making you want more and better for yourself.
No matter what is happening in life, there can always be a reason to write. We write shopping lists to not forgetting items we need. When we are sad, we can use writing as a way to cope with our emotions. Writing is also an “old school” method of communication – believe me, plenty of people still value a hand-writing letter or greeting card.
In this “Why Write?” series, we will share writing examples of how writing can be used in the healing process or everyday wellbeing. Grab a notebook and a pen and allow yourself to delve into who you are, where you are coming from, where you are going, and everything in between.
