Writing by heart

I'm sure many blog readers, writers, creatives, book lovers out there would agree with me if I said, ' Isn't it lovely having something of your very own, to throw your thoughts down on and splash with every colour of your life . . .' 

I of course mean blogging! When I stumbled across this intricate, warm and accepting world of writing and creating I didn't really expect to have a go at joining in. I really wanted to. But part of me lacked courage and the other part, know - how!! 

One whole year (and a bit) in, and I'm doing it. I'm writing and keeping a blog that I've made and designed in an image that feels 'homey' and 'true to me' and it's real. It's out there. And it's such a special part of my life. 

There are many reasons it's become special to me . . . I've always loved writing and to discover this kind of outlet was a wonderful thing . . . but I think one of the main reasons it's struck such a chord with me is, the sense of belonging. 

I am reading daily of other like minded lives and personalities, interests, fears and worries all akin to my own and for someone who spent a huge portion of her life feeling 'different from the rest' it is incredibly encouraging to find 'your people' . . .






I am only a small scale blog as I have said many a time, but it's perfectly manageable for me this way and allows me to simply look through the window without un nerving myself in the process.

I've gained so much inspiration from blogging, but also from the lovely people I read about and see. I am wearing things I love more, having been brave enough to choose different fashions, I am back in touch with my creativity which had been quiet for sometime, I am re discovering old dreams, making new ones, and generally looking up when I walk instead of down. 

So, thank you to those who appear in my email inbox each morning, I feel like if we ever met, we may be friends, and if not that, then maybe faithful pen pals, who will always have something nice to say and share.

  1. I share the same sentiments with you regarding blogging. Over the years, both my writing style and perspectives have evolved all thanks to the new ideas and insights I gain from simply reading others' thoughts. I find that blogging is a way to connect all of us and brings out the creativity that we all have. Thanks for writing this post and have a great day! :)
