Just write

These are words that I have heard my husband say to me, and I am glad that he has said them more than once. Just write means giving myself the permission to sit and do something that I love doing and not letting other things get in the way like I normally do. Being able to accept that me sitting and writing is important has helped me continue to enjoy the writing process.

Just writing means that I can write whatever I am feeling and not care what others think about the outcome, unless I want someone to see what I have been writing about. There are days when I wish I could just sit and write, but other things get in the way. When I have the opportunity to sit and write, I have learned to take them and value them. Sometimes the sitting and writing because I need to write means something else doesn’t get done right away, but it does get done later.

Writing is one of my methods of dealing with a lot of my emotions and things that are going on in my life. Hopefully being able to write about the various things will make it a lot better for me and I don’t have to deal with the emotional roller coaster that I have sometimes dealt with in the past.

Being able to write for the joy of it is important. I know that I don’t have to be perfect when I do this writing because I can later go over my thoughts and make sure they are clearer. Of course, there are times when I can just enjoy the writing and that makes me happy and then there are the times when I can sit and review my writing and that is a different mindset.

Having the ability to just sit and write and let the ideas flow is wonderful, and knowing that you can make the actual thought clearer later on is great. Sometimes thoughts flow, and they make sense and then there are the times that after looking at them, they are just a mixture of feelings and there isn’t any way to possibly make sense of that so someone else can read it, but that is ok as well because at least the thoughts have been put down and that helps in so many ways.

For me, I write some each day and that is important and quite a bit of what I write is never seen by anyone else and that is fine as well. I know that each bit of writing that I do have a purpose and just write is my way of getting so many different thoughts out of my head so that I can then focus on some of the other things that do need my attention. So, next time someone says to you “just write” do it and see how you feel. You will probably be happy they told you to do it.
