We write..

We write to taste life twice. ~Anais Nin

For me journalling isn’t just about documenting my day, or capturing the memories, or even about acknowledging my emotional connections to events and the feelings I become aware of. Since I have been writing this blog, I notice things differently, I savour the description of things as they happen as I note the words and feelings evoked to share in my writing. It also causes me to reflect more deeply yet somehow more objectively, since if I am to describe it to readers, it at least has to make partial sense, enabling me to unravel the raw emotions, noticing how they are woven together to create the tapestry I see in my heart. Through my writing I have learnt to acknowledge the thoughts and dreams that swirl round my head, and appreciate the richness of life as I live it. I am more likely to follow my heart since I listen more attentively and feel more gratitude for the love that I witness.. We all have our stories, they are more than just a reminder of what happened, but help us to make sense of our lives, teach us and encourage us, and connect us to each other ♥ Thank you for being the reason I started to write this page, it has changed the way I live my life, and I will always be grateful ♥ Blessings & love, Hxx
