writing with love

it is realI hold love in my heart for anyone that has ever passed through my life. I don’t live in a world of regret and bitterness. Every life altering event has taught me a valuable lesson and the people I have cared enough about to put into words have left an indelible message on my heart that can never be erased.

I can not physically write with hate in my heart. The words just do not come to me. It is the love, compassion, humor and humility that make any story I tell worth reading. But no one ever has to read a word of it, unless they want to.

I am a flawed human being, living in a world of flawed human beings and it is through words that I will continue to explore the conditions and disorders and disabilities we all possess from being alive.

    I’ve written with hate on occasion, and it didn’t serve anyone. It just made me suffer more. 🙂

    • You and I have chatted about the recent news in my life. There is a woman right now that is spreading the rumor that I indeed do write with hatred.

      What surprises me is that she was my biggest supporter when I was writing about my experience. It makes me sad that she can’t seem to figure out where she stands.Rather than exploring her own feelings about the subject, she chooses to project her bitterness onto me. I can’t be bothered with the trifling behavior of a bully, but I can remind people that writing with love is the best therapy.

      I know that I will never regret a word I’ve ever written because they are my experiences and my beliefs, no one elses.I don’t write to judge, I write to learn and to grow. If it helps someone heal to read what I process, then that’s all good too.

      Lovin’ your latest posts too Paula!!! I might have to reblog a few of those because they are perfection in print!! ❤

        Often, the truth is ugly, but that doesn’t mean we are writing from an ugly place. We can write about what happened to us and how we were treated. That process is done because we love ourselves and care about letting others understand where I pain was born.

        It’s one thing to write about someone wishing us dead and quite another to write that we wish them dead. I honestly don’t wish anything good to happen to my abuser; I also stopped wishing bad to happen to him, too. But that doesn’t mean I can’t still write about what was done to me and why others should know about it.

        He should have behaved better!

        Don’t worry about that bully. Stop reading her words. her words are coming from a place of judgement.

        And thank you for all of your wonderful compliments. They mean a lot to me. 🙂 XOXO

  3. Totally have a post called “Do not let your fire go out” Inspired by.. guess what?? Actually guess who? Another blogger read another post of mine (one either directly or closely preceeding it), a travel story about how i went on this underwater cave tour with nothing to light the way but a cande. The post was mostly not metaphorical though it was towards the end. 3rd Millenium Men, bless their hearts, ran with this and.. so was born a new post.

    SO HAPPY to see a fellow journeymen

    • I love that word picture…an underwater cave tour with nothing to light the way but a candle…at first read I imagined you underwater in a cave with a candle and I tried to imagine how you kept it lit 🙂

      • Thanks! It was NOT easy! I still can’t believe they were just like here ya go, as if it were a normal every day thing.

        Another bit of irony. I had rented the movie Atlas Shrugged II the day before i saw your post – perhaps the universe is telling me to check some more of Ayn Rands works. I’ve only read Atlas Shrugged – and now thanks to this site I see she has soooo much more, she is very inspirational.

        I was also very tempted to “steal” the photo of the quote 🙂 or at least some version of it 🙂

        How would you feel about that? Perhaps something’s I threw together myself in Publisher? It was so elegant yet simple. Touching and warn.

        I totally would credit it as your idea. Lemme know!
