Why I Write (And You Should Too)

Writing things down have made a profound impact on me. It’s incredible how useful they can be at the time when we are confused and don’t know what we should do next. I always undermine it yet every time when I use this tool it I feel like I should have used it more often.

If a story is in you, it has got to come out
William Faulkner

Even writing down the smallest possible steps you can take, has the power to move you from stagnancy to mobility. I love to write, not only for my blog but also for the things I have to do during the day time. I write when I feel down, I write when I feel motivated, I write when I feel guilty of not doing the things I should have done, I write when I plan things, basically I write whenever I get time to write. Writing lessen the burden if I have any, and if I feel motivated, writing makes me feel even more motivated.

If you think you are not good enough to write, you are wrong. You may not have enough expertise to write in public that I can understand but of course you can write for yourself. Doing that more often will gradually make you a good writer and it will improve your writing skills in the long run. For those who always have an excuse for not writing, and those who plan to write and those who love to procrastinate, there is only one message… You just have to start.!!

The Power of Writing

Writings are very valuable, it would eventually surpass everyone of us.

All of us reading this text would not be here in this world after 100 years or so, but the writings and the foot prints of ourselves which we have created in our lifespan would retain even after our departure.

Currently I am reading a book “Autobiography of A Yogi”  by Yogananda Paramhansa. He is not in this world but the wisdom that he has left in his writings would continue to change people’s life till the end of the time.
In his book he has mentioned that he stopped meeting people when his demise was near and started giving more time to write his book, when people asked why is he not meeting that way he use to.

He replied, “If I would meet people and I would change couple of hundreds of lives but if write about my life, it would change millions of lives.”

That’s so true.

That is the power of writing.

Nobody has seen Shakespeare, Aristotle, Abraham Lincoln and other people like that.
They were not the most beautiful people in the world
They did not posses inhuman strength.
But they left us a legacy, they shared their secret in their writings and we all remember them, and we would continue to remember them till the end of the time.

We are mortals and time bound but our creations can be timeless.

Vedas are the best example, (the Hindu scripture from ancient history), we don’t even know who wrote it, but it is preserved like scared text and millions of people have had their learning from it.

That’s the power of writing.

We have been given numerous tools in these days to write effortlessly, we should harness it.
