Writing has served several purposes for me. The most significant of which is self-healing. The term self-healing can suggest that something is innately wrong, or that something needs to be fixed. (see: if it ain't broke, don't fix it). This is not the case. I find writing very therapeutic, calming, and it allows me time for self-reflection. Writing gives me the opportunity to express my thoughts, desires, opinions, frustrations, questions and musings in the second most intimate manner possible. I believe that by writing about my feelings, I can analyze them and take a more objective look at my decisions and decide for myself where I have succeeded and where I have failed. The chance to assess where there is room for personal improvement and where I have excelled.
