Of all of the creative things I do, I think writing is my favorite. I love opening up my brain and my heart and letting the words trip off of my fingertips on to a keyboard. Tap, tap, tap...tappity tap.
I process things through writing. It's a catharsis and it brings clarity. Some may scream it out or punch it out or paint it out...but for me it almost always comes down to writing it out.
I used to share my sad stories in my blog. But I don't anymore. We all have sad stories. It's part of being human. I do believe it is important to speak them and release them, I just don't know if the internet is where that has to happen. Sad stories mostly just make us sad. Angry words mostly just make us angry. Divisive thoughts mostly just divide.
I want to tell happy stories, that mostly just make me and you, gentle reader, happy.
The world needs a lot more sparkle and a lot less snark.
It is my new and improved mission to bring more sparkle and less snark.
Words are powerful. Choose them wisely.
I choose "joy."
I love this definition of "joy" from BraveHeart Women.
