Letting it Out7:00 AM
As I said in my look back at 2015, it was a mixed year for me. While I got to do a lot of amazing things, I also had to deal with some very hard things as well. Many of the things I have gone through, I have wanted to share, but many of them were matters I felt I couldn't on my public blog. The events have left me feeling very emotionally weak, so I decided to take a step back from a lot of things I do.
If you have read my blog for any amount of time, you probably have found out that writing means a lot more to me than just the stories. When I write, I spill a lot of my emotions into the words. The stories often are my way of coping and processing what is going on around me. When I am feeling most overwhelmed by life, it usually is because I haven't had the time to write.
So, to deal with a lot of the emotions that have been building inside the last part of 2015, I have taken the month of January and am throwing myself into writing. I am trying to write about 5,000 words a day and also spend a lot of extra time at the feet of Jesus. Even though I have only been at this about a week, I am already feeling better.
I am very grateful that my life is such right now that I could take this time to really step back from a lot of things and focus on what helps me to heal. I am sure, with the help of God, I will come out at the other end of this stronger and better because of this.
How do you recover from emotionally hard times?
