I’m feel lost. I feel down. I feel confused. I don’t know what to do. My life isn’t exactly going where I want it to go….

When my mind is like this, where it is filled with racing thoughts, I find that I close my eyes and go to bed, willing to shut it all off. But this does not give me peace, and at times I find that it just gives me a headache.

Then one night, when I was feeling extra down, I thought to myself… remember the time when you used to write about everything? Your happiness, your sadness… your deepest thoughts and desires… it all went into paper. And as if this was a some kind of channel… a way to let it all go… that’s what it did. It dispelled the sorrows away onto paper. In writing there was structure, I wasn’t as confused and it felt like I was doing something productive.

I haven’t felt like this in a long time. This feeling of inner peace, of letting it all go, of letting it be. I’ll remember this feeling, and continue to write on paper.
