Lately the words and feelings haven’t been flowing out of me like they used to. I started a blog to try and cope with the frustrating time I was having with my 16 month old. She was driving me crazy and I felt very alone in that struggle. I am thrilled to say It worked, writing a blog helped me in ways you wouldn’t believe.
Although I never thought of myself as a person who would need something like a blog to improve their life I’m finding that I really like it. I’m not a gifted writer I didn’t do great in English and my grammer is far from perfect, just ask my husband but that is the beauty of a blog you don’t have to get a degree or have an excellent vocabulary to get your thoughts heard. You just put them here and if they are even half way honest someone is bound to find them interesting.
I don’t have a hundred followers or a hundred likes but I still feel like my voice is heard and my frustrations are now just floating around the Internet instead of my head. One would be hard pressed to find a cheaper therapist than the paper and pencil. I no longer have this overwhelming feeling of dread every morning and I feel about a thousand times more confident in myself from just a few short months of blogging.
I know it sounds corny and cliche but I really do think starting this blog has changed my life. I would recommend it to any one struggling with who they are or where they are going, because just simply writing down something, anything can clear your head of life’s most trying obstacles.
