Reading and writing can help calm the chaos

Early in the pandemic I began reading a lot, and there was a moment last year when I realized I fell in love with reading and writing. It was one of the most significant moments of my life, but until this morning I never thought about why it happened. Well there is so much chaos that we deal with every day, external and internal. For the last three years, reading and writing has helped me tune out that chaos and calm my thoughts and emotions. But they’ve also been a path for a type of inner growth that’s hard to describe, but you know it when you feel it. It’s like the seed of who you are deep down is able to grow. I hope you have something in your daily schedule that does that for you, and if you don’t I encourage you to try to find it. Because for all of us, there’s a seed deep down of whoever we truly are, and it wants to grow and keep growing.
