A Quote to Share

This quote really speaks to me every time I read it. It explains my deep passion for blogging during my college days.

“Writing can be a true spiritual discipline. Writing can help us to concentrate, to get in touch with the deeper stirrings of our hearts, to clarify our minds, to process confusing emotions, to reflect on our experiences, to give artistic expression to what we are living, and to store significant events in our memories. Writing can also be good for others who might read what we write. Quite often a difficult, painful, or frustrating day can be ‘redeemed’ by writing about it. By writing we can claim what we have lived and thus integrate it more fully into our journeys. Then writing can become lifesaving for us and sometimes for others too.”

Henri Nouwen

I wish I can rediscover that passion I used to have.

    Oh, really good quote! I hadn’t read it before, and it beautifully summarizes why we write. I hope you rediscover that joy and passion too!

    nylusmilk: when a quote describes our feelings perfectly, there’s just no other kind of feeling like it, is there? like meeting a kindred soul.

    the desire is there but i don’t know if i’m ready yet. i feel like it could be soon. 🙂
