Who really wants to do it? No one. Who, then, has to do it? Everyone. So you have to do it. The more you do it, the more you love it.
Writing is a cathartic experience. Besides art, it is the most reflective of actual human emotion.
You can read a book and it does the same thing.
You are transported to a different dimension. Time and space are no longer a part of the equation. The motives and simplicity of it are all that matters
I had the same experience as reading and writing in art class. There were few things in high school that could retain my interest. Art was one of them. Specifically they were painting and drawing.
I would miss other classes to go back to art class to paint. That’s how much I liked it. I actually wanted to be there.
The more you write, the more you want to do it.
Why do you want to do it?
Release is important.
There are different levels of release. Some are not attainable through conversation.
Prayer is also important. The spoken and unspoken prayer is equal.
Writing and prayer demonstrate release.
You want release. You need release. Not just release, but healthy release.
Keep in mind how difficult it can actually be though. How many of us want to write something. Don’t you want to draw something or paint like you did back in the day?
Exercise can be a form of release too. Or it can be a method, or portal to finding your release.
Working out can give you self-confidence. That trait forces you to face what form of release is pulling at you.
Never forget that you have that something. It doesn’t matter what it is. It is a higher calling to something.
Putting it off is natural. There is always a force out there more than willing to stop you from doing it.
Some things that you can do to find your release, or just act it out:
Write when you can, or write all the time. Make a schedule, then pick goals make it a priority.
Read books about writing. Transform your mind with skills that you store in your memory bank. Because that’s all reading is: transforming your mind for later reflection.
Seek out God. I believe in God. He has already found you. If you seek Religion, you will find God. Discover more about God. This release never fails to satisfy.
Dance or Theater
I have actually never done either of these, but they seem attractive. People who do these things LOVE them. A lot of people absolutely dedicate their lives to these forms. Do it if you want to.
Research any and all technology available. Once you go down this rabbit hole, you may never be back again.
Art as in painting, sculpting, drawing, and other things. This is another that I fall under. Everyone should do this once in a while. Art never goes away. It is visceral and it’s a part of who you are.
Search and find your niche.
This is not a definitive list. It is just to indicate how much you feel for things. This feeling needs to be expressed in some way.
It will help you find out who you are, what you want deep inside. Or it can just express your inner feelings in ways you can’t express with words.
But the more you go into this realm, the better you become at expressing it. In some ways these things will start to make more sense. You life will uncover a whole new sense of meaning.
Your meaning will gradually transform into this side of you. Your job will not define who you are, or what you were meant to be. Purpose will slowly evolve in your own self-understanding.
It actually shifts your attention away from you, towards these things. At that point, you can look at yourself objectively. You can see yourself as a part of the big picture and you can fit your own release into that plan.
I hope this has shown hope in a new light. Remember to think about what you want as a release, and keep searching for it. Every day.
