Writing As An Outlet

20 Nov

I read a post titled “What do Exercise, Veggies, and Writing Have In Common.”  It made me think.  The thing I think they have in common are they are all good for health.  Writing lets me express myself.  At the same time I can sometimes write about fictional characters that have a little bit of me in them.  I enjoy this.  I can write them and apply my amateur psychology to them.

I can also express myself.  I am breast cancer survivor.  I haven’t written much about this on Word Press but joined a site with women who are also survivors and get wonderful inspiration stories from them.  Facebook Friends reached out to me when I told them when I was first diagnosed.  They gave me support and started a prayer circle.  It’s like having a sisterhood.  Before this I always thought of writing as an outlet sometimes to rant and ramble, giving me an outlet.  Yes. writing is a stress reliever and great emotional helper,

LookFor The Lifestyle

7 Nov

You’re not too happy in your life.  You want to give up.  It’s humdrum, the same thing day after day.  Maybe you’re just not living the lifestyle you need for happiness.  Look into yourself.  You’re not sure what you want.  Try different things out from sewing to construction work.  There’s a lot of different things in this age and time.  If you want to look for a career or if you stay at home.

You have to look and try to live the lifestyle you want and find it.  It’s there simple or adventurous whatever you are.  Live it.  Reach out.  and once you find things you like to do grab it and savor it.  It’s there.  You just have to look.  Try something you often thought about doing but didn’t.  I am the age where I should be retiring.  I am but I find new things in this life and appreciate them more.
