Written Therapy

I just published a bunch of posts that were sitting in my drafts since as far back as 2010. I think they all have something in common. They were posts that I wrote when things were not going so well, and usually I try to keep my posts positive. I think it's okay for me to indulge in some negativity/uncertainty every now and then, don't you think?

Writing usually helps me articulate my thoughts so usually I tend to have a "solution" of some sort in the post simply because I found my solution. I suppose the recent posts are examples of when writing didn't actually bring me to a conclusion but the process always helps nonetheless.

I'm looking forward to my songwriting session in a few hours. It's funny but two decades later, still nothing else cheers me up like longitudinal waves hitting my eardrums with just the right frequency and rhythm. Songwriting is like performing magic. Creating something out of seemingly nothing. Turning lows into highs every time life makes a dent on us (or others!). The pen is like a magician's hat. You never know what will come out of it.
