Valentine’s Day is here and I haven’t posted in months, so I thought I would take this opportunity to create a quick post about… you guessed it: Love!
This post hasn’t got an awful lot to do with content writing. In fact, it’s got nothing to do with content writing at all. But words are my thing and writing is one of the many ways in which I process my thoughts and manage my life.
I understand that life can get difficult, stressful and downright depressing – I am absolutely no stranger to that. But I am so blessed to know that there are a handful of people in my life that I can reach out to during difficult times. They know who they are and I am utterly indebted to each and every one of those people for everything they do for me, no matter how small it may seem.
Come to think of it, this post IS about content writing because if I wasn’t able to get through the bad times, my writing would suffer as a result. When I’m functioning at my peak, I can feel it in my writing; the inspiration flows from within me, and I feel compelled to write and write and write to my heart’s content.
But when I’m struggling with a difficult emotion or having a hard time, it can be so hard to focus on my writing. Everything seems fuzzy and confused; my thoughts don’t connect like usual and I really have to focus just to string a sentence together (to my clients, don’t worry, this doesn’t happen often ;)).
Which is why I am so grateful to the handful of people in my life, who are always there for me through thick and thin (they know who they are!) They never judge me or put me down, and always fill me with encouragement.
So this Valentine’s Day (and beyond!), spread some love not just to your lover, but to your loved ones too!
