They say happiness comes from within. By some means, I believed it.
My Dreams, My Journeys
It was writing all along that made me feel the congruity in my thoughts. The satisfaction gives me as I put those ideas together and precisely express my longing dreams into words. It is the voyage – the journey that is in my mind in having to give an abstract entity, a life in an ordinary piece of pen and paper.
A Piece of Me In My Writings
The very thing I love about writing is that it gives me the opportunity to express myself in words. It helps me to let go of the illustrative thoughts forming a sense inside of me. According to Lindsey Pratt Psychotherapy, LMHC, “it’s not only the benefit of catharsis in the moment of writing that makes journaling so effective – It’s also reviewing what you’ve written.”
Trust me, writing that deeper part of yourself feels like you just pulled out an arrow piercing your heart, emotions you have been longing to convey. Some studies show daily writing to lessen the chances of having depression and anxiety. Writings boost your mood into a more positive and happy one.
Writing Your Legacy Is Happiness Overload
Writing comes from experiences or information you want to offer with a just degree of accuracy; topics which you want to give and expressions you want to leave the reader behind. The power of writing gives you the essence and wisdom of past or future generations. Learning about things new to you as you write sometimes brings you your very own happiness. “Happy people make healthier choices,” explains Scott Glassman, PsyD. And I believe that.
By writing and expressing your own words while having to create a structure of your unique thoughts, you obtain great satisfaction that you have accomplished something. This accomplishment establishes a sense of success which leads towards your own happiness.
Creativity In Many Forms
There are many types of writing whether to inform or explain the subject to a reader, writing to show your opinions and influence a part of him, telling stories and writing imaginatively to paint a picture to the reader.
In any case, starting to write benefits you to a great extent, for your fulfillment and the wholeness of your being – the mind, body, and soul working as one.
Mindset Of A Writer
For some, writing can be a hard task. A person who says writing requires hard work and great inspiration is not the proper mindset if you want to write anything. Starting to write can be easy as eating a pie; you just have to give time and dedication to begin your work on a series of minute-by-minute progress. This can mean having your own moment in a day just to write.
There is always a joy when you start to write. Not only it makes you happy but it also rests your mind. Andrea F. Polard, PsyD says, “Mind resting usually doesn’t mean to have no thoughts, but to slow down thoughts and give each thought less meaning.” It is still productive even if it is one word at a time on a day-by-day basis. You can begin by writing about your daily activity, and experience how fun and easy it is.
Happiness in writing is when you get to enjoy what you are writing about and imparting your thoughts to the world. It is when you can veraciously communicate your deep 3-am thoughts into letters, sentences, and paragraphs into a blank sheet of paper.
The feeling of gladness when I have written something unordinary or new to me is just one of the best feelings I have in writing. Tell me yours.
