One of the great results of doing deep inner work in your writing life is the discovering. When you write you uncover and look at your life with a new set of lens. Sometimes you may discover strengths that you never really knew you had. Sometimes you discover the dark parts of your life as well.
What I try to remember is that is is the light and the dark that creates the me of today. Writing gives me the opportunity to see what it is about me that I like and make that more a part of me. But it also allows me to look at the side of my life that I may not be proud of. It reminds me that I am a work in progress and that it is through the discovering that I can start healing.
Take the time today to examine your life…look at your life with love
