My friends, this is why I love to write. I sound so much cooler when I can think about what I need to say for a second. If only my brain came with a backspace button.
Here is a quote that I loved from Mark Twain (Who I love),
The difference between the right word and almost the right word is the
difference between lightning and the lightning bug.
I have always loved to write. I have always loved the escape that it brings. Just recently I have learned of the healing outlet that writing can also be. We have been told our whole lives to keep a journal. I never wanted to, because I couldn't imagine someone being interested in what I do in a day. However, now I see the importance of writing your feelings down. I feel like it is a principle of faith. When we write down our life experiences we now have a record to refer back to that will show us strength when we need it, or remind us of blessings or lessons learned. I have so cherished my personal journals, even though they only started a few years ago. So many times I have re-read passages that have helped me more now than they did then. What an amazing principle. I sure wish I would have done it a lot sooner.
