Words are powerful, but you probably already know that. Some people use words to teach, make a point, give an opinion, or show emotions. Other use words like a weapon, as rhetoric, or propaganda. So, what exactly is my point?
Use words to help you. A journal, written in pen, or a blog typed on a keyboard, can all be therapeutic. Be honest, reflective, and descriptive. Don’t hold back. I am actually going to write my memoirs. I have lived a pretty remarkable life, but I keep most of it to myself. There are things I have not ever told anyone, not even my husband, or children. I have had a lot of pain in my life, but also a million blessings. I think it is time to put my life into words. I hope it will help people who may struggle with some of the things I did. It will probably take me quite some time to write it. There are things that I would just not rather remember. I do not believe in living in the past, or holding grudges, so this will be a hard process for me. I think I have decided on a title, and a prologue. It will be penned anonymously, with names that are not real. There is a reason for that. My son will edit it for me, and I will probably publish it on Amazon Kindle. I think everyone, should write their memoirs, I really do. There is something empowering about putting your life to words to share with others.
