Going back to 20 or even more years of my life, there is learning from that time period that still holds a lot of significance: “Embrace Love for Books and Writing”.
The Initial Years of our Lives and a Change that has Taken Place
Each one of us as a kid was raised with a belief that we must develop an affinity for books. Notably, the voracious readers amongst us were automatically driven to writing their thoughts.
Most of us will agree that a diary-keeping used to be an intellectual and creative activity in our times. Even if, the times have changed drastically and conventional classrooms are converted into smart classrooms, the importance of books, nevertheless, remains the same. A change that has been significant, for instance, is that Blogging has taken over a conventional diary keeping ritual of our times. There is not much difference. It’s just a different tool used for writing.
Right from school going kids to retired individuals, everyone is taking to Blogging for different reasons. My blog is no different. It serves the same purpose as a diary of my grandfather would do.
What is the Purpose of Writing this Blog Post?
Well, a few of my readers and folks keep telling me that they have always loved writing. For the reason that I have known them personally and had a chance to read their works, I can vouch for their writing skills.
Excellent writers, as most of them, are but they all tell me the same thing:
“I love what you are doing. Even I used to love writing. My work life is quite hectic. That being the case, I’m not left with ample time to write a diary or blog. Considering my fondness for writing, I am going to get back to this wonderful activity sometime in the future.”
With all modesty, I tell them “Writing is just about taking that first step”.
Consequently, the silence creeps in….
But, the truth that I want you my folks to know is:
“Sadly, that time will never come for you. It’s always now or never”.
It recently occurred to me that if I don’t speak now, it will be too late. As much as I like readers getting motivated by my work, I dislike them not getting into an action.
To tell you the truth, I want all my readers to experience the bliss of getting back to what we loved doing as teenagers. Sharing our thoughts, writing poetry can be a wonderful experience.
Why is Writing Important?
When you start writing, there is a transformation that takes place in your sub-conscious mind. Your mind and body reflect a lot of positivism as you steer the negativity around you. You experience a lot of energy and you epitomize love and happiness. That is precisely how the poets and authors are born.
Furthermore, it’s a delight to see your productivity get enhanced at the workplace and how it gets a lot easier to accomplish your goals. There is a greater self-control. You may even get rid of your fears and your past by writing it down on a piece of paper and throwing it away.
Writing is about unleashing the power of your sub-conscious mind. Refraining yourself from the activity that has a lot of spiritual significance merely for excuses is not worth it.
Further, as Blogging becomes a new tool for writing in a modern day technical world, you can reach to a larger audience in a short span of time. You no longer need to store your writing pieces in a cupboard so that future generations can read them. Additionally, you can make money out of writing in an online world. Isn’t it worth giving a shot?
Lastly, I leave you all with these beautiful words to think upon:
“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”-Enid Bagnold
