Exploring life through writing

Writing is Courage

Don’t let the inspiration hold you back.

Often, when we sit down to write, we don’t feel “inspired”. We are tired, reeling from stress from our regular day jobs and the last thing we want to do is open a page and be honest with ourselves. So we pretend that the issue here is a lack of inspiration, rather than our own fear of showing the world our insides.

We are afraid that once we put it on paper (real or otherwise), we will be vulnerable and the world will have a weapon against us. What we need to realize is that we are not alone in this. We need to realize that by being vulnerable we will find like-minded people that are looking for us to connect.

Once we write our souls out, the world might have a weapon against us, yes, but we will also have a protection in a form of a support, love, friendship of people that are not afraid to show the world what makes them tick, what helps them go on every day, what lights up or darkens their day.

Don’t be afraid to write. You will discover things inside of yourself you never knew where there. You will discover people who will appreciate you for who you are, real you, and help you be courageous every day.

Writing is courage, so fight on!

    1. Thank you for reblogging, I appreciate it!

  2. This is wonderful! Sometimes we just need to allow our thoughts to come out, no matter how strange they seem… “No inspiration” does not really exist in a sense. We cannot suddenly stop thinking; we only decide that what we think is not worthy of being written down. Of course, most of the time it is nonsense, but we should not be afraid of speaking up.

    1. I agree with you, that’s exactly it. We don’t write because of fear, but no one has to see our first drafts! Just sit down and write it out, edit and share! Thank you for reading my blog, have a great day!

  3. Great reminder to just write!

  4. Lillith, you nailed it. It’s true ~ we’ll discover things inside we never knew were there. A great reason to keep writing! Enjoyed this post, thank you. 😉
