“Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life: they feed the soul. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It’s like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can’t stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.”
What is the one thing that makes you nervous or uncomfortable? What is it about this that bothers you? Where does this uncomfortable feeling come from?
Write about this fear ~ why does it truly terrify you? Is it protecting you or preventing you from living the life you deserve? How likely is it that this fear will actually materialize and what would happen if it did?
Reflect, be totally honest with yourself and write!
“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.”
