I've always wanted it to be a place where I can document while grieving and growing as a person. I've always wanted it to be a place that impacts the one person who needed to hear what God put on my heart that day.
Last night, I realized that I want all of those things for my writing in general. It doesn't matter if I type it here, make it the caption on one of my Instagram pictures, post a Facebook status, or submit an assignment for school... I want the power in my words to be a positive one.
All words leave an impact. The things we say stick with the people we say them to forever. It might sound a little crazy, but as a blogger, I don't believe that actions speak louder than words. In fact, I believe that the process of putting feelings into words is the most beautiful thing there is in this life. I know that sounds like some dramatic over-exaggeration... But to me, it's the definition of passion.
I got an assignment back from my English teacher this week and it made me realize how big that passion is inside of me...
"I have always appreciated the power of your written words and your passionate responses to the issues that confront our society. That definitely did not change as I read this piece from you! Your citations are accurately formatted and your summaries are carefully woven within your thoughts. Keep it up!"
Maybe I post too much about my daily struggles. Maybe I take too many selfies. Maybe I'm overly excited to share what's on my heart. Maybe, maybe, maybe... So what? This space was created for me to share me. That doesn't make me any more important than anyone else, but rather it's simply something that makes me the girl I am.
The power of words is absolutely ridiculous. I want to remember that sheer, oh-so-important fact every.single.day.
