Why do I write?


I write with purpose but sometimes my writings come about by accident. I write because I very often cannot say what I want verbally

I write to shine a light in the lives of others. I write to bring strength, encouragement and love. I write with the hope that my words will touch someone else, that my words will inspire others. I write to bring about hope in hopeless situations.

I write to express who I am, what I am feeling and what touches my life. I write to calm my mind and give new life to my soul. I write to share memories and also so I can look back and remember them.

I write because I know that one day my feelings will have a reason and a purpose.

They need to know that there is hope and there is help available to them.
