We all need something to turn to that helps us through those tough times, that thing we can turn to for comfort. For me that thing is writing, it has been something I have turned to in good times and in bad times from the time I was a kid.
When things in school were really bad with bullying and life was tough I would write down my feelings and get it out. As I got older I kept doing it and it was always a safe place for me to say what I really wanted to say. I also wrote a lot of poems and short stories that really showed how I was feeling at that time.
The thing that I really love about writing is that it is something that I have always been able to do no matter where my vision was at. I never needed to do anything different than anyone else I could always just put down my thoughts and have that outlet that I needed for me.
Finding what works for you is an important part of our lives it is what we can turn to when we need that outlet. I have always been a little shy about sharing my creative writing but I think it is a good thing to share a part of yourself sometimes to let people know who you are.
I wrote the following piece for a creative writing class that I was taking a few weeks ago and thought I would share it here today.
A Spring Day
As I sit and enjoy the world around me I am reminded I experience the world around me in a unique and beautiful way. It reminds me how lucky I am to live the life I do.
As I sit here I hear the birds chirping and the wind rustling through the trees leaves. I hear the buzzing of the bees and wasps nearby. The water rushing into the shore and lapping against the rocks.
As I sit here I smell the fresh cut grass, the fresh air and flowers blooming nearby. The smell of fresh water and fresh grass alongside the flowers is a tranquil smell, it reminds me how lucky I really am to be able to sit here and enjoy the world around me.
As I hear a bike pass by on the path the rocks popping under the tires, a stroller goes by and I hear the giggles of a young child. The freedom we all feel when we are young is something I never want to lose.
As I sit here and my skin warms from the sun shine, and I feel the cool breeze every so often, my skin prickles with the sensation of a beautiful spring day.
As I sit here in the dark I am able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine, and everything the seasons bring with them.
Not missing a beat but enjoying every second of the world around me.
