Why I Started Writing Daily and Why You Should Too

why i started writing daily

I wrote this a few days ago, but I didn’t know if I should publish it. Part of me is saying no because I was in a weird state of mind. But the other part of me is saying to publish it because it is real and it is what I was thinking at the time. I want to be open about all areas of my life no matter what I am feeling. So, with that said, here we go.

There are days where I really have to dig deep to find even the slightest bit of motivation to write what what I am currently feeling. There are days where I question why it is that I am writing my thoughts for the world to see. Then, I just look through my older posts. The minute I do, my reasoning once again becomes clear.

I don’t write because I am forced to write. I started writing daily because I enjoy releasing and reflecting on my thoughts, and because I enjoy the idea of helping others to overcome. The best way to put it, it’s a win-win for me.

Sure, there are times that I really don’t know what to feel (like today) because I am too tired to think (again, like today). Maybe my mind isn’t in the right place, or I am trying too hard to find my own thoughts. Or maybe I am just being lazy. We all know what that feels like.

Either way, challenging myself to write something new every single day has become one of my greatest accomplishments. I am proud of myself for making time to release my thoughts, write about things that I am passionate about, and to hopefully inspire others. It is not always an easy task.

But if I didn’t find an outlet to release my thoughts, I dare say that I would be even more of a head case that I already am. That is a scary thought… Writing has become the best outlet for me to express myself and to just release everything that I am feeling. To be honest, it has played a crucial role in overcoming my struggles.

I often talk about the positive strides that I am making in my life and how I have overcame a lot of negatives. While I like to focus on the good, trust me, there are many times where I still struggle. In fact, writing is one of those struggles of mine.

All throughout grade school and into college, I think my best grade in any writing class was a B+. I am sure you could have guessed with all of my grammatical errors.

All jokes aside, though, it doesn’t matter how many grammatical errors that I make. What matters is the message that I am trying to spread. As long as I am staying true to the person that I am, that is what matters.

Writing is about expressing myself, sharing the struggles that I have faced, and sharing the struggles that I still do face in life. I like the idea of being able to look back on my own thoughts to see how I handled certain situations. I like to think that my through my struggles, others might find inspiration to overcome struggles of their own. And sometimes, I just like being able to look back and ask myself, “What the hell were you thinking?”

Yeah, this happens a lot. But part of being able grow as a person is by reflecting on the past and learning from our mistakes. We all have different things that we struggle with. Why not help each other to overcome these struggles?

There have been many times where I have bottled my emotions up and worn them on my face. There have been many times where I could never express what I was feeling and felt like I was simply losing my mind. And there have been many times that I have searched for someone to who I could relate to, but I could never find.

It is for these reasons that I enjoy writing. While this is my life, I choose to share it to help everyone in finding their true potential and their ability to overcome any obstacles in life. It is something that I am passionate about, and something that I was meant to do. Don’t believe me? Just watch!
