We make hundreds of decisions daily. Mundane decisions like what we eat for lunch, and life-altering decisions like where we call home. Large or trivial, each decision potentially impacts our quality of life. Conscious thoughts lead to a developed life philosophy as opposed to living based solely on emotions and gut instinct. Writing, thinking, allows us to lead an examined life, one worth living, they say.
Writing helps me think. Through my writing, I discover clarity and direction. Living in a manner aligned with my core values crystalizes why I write. The more I write the more self-fulfilled I feel, which feeds my reasons for writing. Now there is a nice Catch 22.
What is your reason for writing?
Keep on writing.
