The Healing Power of Blogging
I began writing a blog quite some time ago. In the first flush of enthusiasm, I made more than a dozen posts, and shared the link with my friends. At once, I was rewarded with 17 loyal followers.
Then I lost interest in the daily chore of writing a post.
My ‘followers’ kept insisting I post something, because they liked what they saw. But I have never been able to do what my heart doesn’t tell me to, so I was quiet.
A few days ago, a personal crisis hit. To make things worse, I realized I didn’t have the luxury of reaching out to my close friends for comfort. It happens, sometimes—people just get caught up with their lives. So, you guessed it, I returned to my blog.
For the past few days, I’ve been posting regularly. And I cannot tell you how good it feels. I have chosen to write about simple pleasures, and this helps me remember the positive and good things in life. It also opens my heart to the infinite pleasures that can be ours for the taking, if we choose to.
So, if you haven’t done so until now, do think about starting a blog. It is your online personal journal, and a breeze to set up. Yes, you can monetize it, advertise it and publicize it—why not! But when you’re blogging, I suggest you do it for the pure pleasure of it. The immense therapeutic benefits will start to come immediately. The material gains—bound to come your way if you write regularly and your blog touches a chord with people—will be a happy by-product of your positive energy.
Allow me to invite you into my little world, which restores and rejuvenates me every time I am in it. I hope you like what you see.
