Why do I write? Why do I love coming back to words and sentences and photos?
I love the way it makes me feel. I love the way it frees me of pain, heartache, worry, and uncertainty. I know writing may never give me all the answers, but I love unveiling my emotions through words.
I love painting a picture of what I feel. I love learning to let go.
I am one of those people who will never stop fighting for what I believe in. I would like to believe that I fight till the end. And despite the fact that fighting is supposed to make us stronger, sometimes. I feel like letting go takes more effort.
I need to let go of fear.
I need to let go of doubt.
I need to let go of obsession.
I need to let go of perfection.
I need to let go of uncertainty.
I feel like I am starting to learn to let go through writing. I open myself to what I am really feeling. I can finally start telling myself- ‘hey, you are pretty great just the way you are. You truly are loved and blessed.’
What do you need to learn to let go of?
“Give your worries to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will never let good people down.” Psalm 55:22
