I Never Get Tired Of Writing
Day 142/365: The best thing since Nutella
Today was a lousy Tuesday. I had to drive my mom to town in the morning, only to get back to a breakfastless kitchen. That was not our deal, mom! Eventually, I got myself some over-easy eggs and some toast and then started working.
I sometimes get tired of the back pain resulting from me sitting at the computer for hours on end. It sometimes gets so bad, I simply pop Ibuprofen and other painkillers like Tic-Tacs. There goes another secret fact about me.
I sometimes get tired of my eyes being fucked at the end of the day. I get up from the desk and feel them move violently inside my sockets. They get me tired and dizzy, and some nights I don’t even need dinner, but just to take a nap after switching all of the devices off.
I sometimes get tired of not having enough time to do what I want. I am a freelancer, which implies a reasonably flexible schedule, but the truth is, you need to be unflexible on purpose to get things done. Especially when you’re doing two big projects at a time and some smaller ones on the side. This means I can’t go to lunch with a friend today, because there’s work to be done.
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ― Maya Angelou
But the truth is, I never get tired of writing. It’s still my therapy to go to, even now, 7 years after I started doing it as a journalist and 5 months into my full-time freelancing journey. When I start writing, everything goes away.
The back pain, the buggy eyes, the not-so-flexible schedule, everything just melts away. Writing is the best thing that has ever happened to me. And to be able to make a living out of writing, out of laying words on a blank document, that’s simply a blessing for me.
Give writing a try!
Not as an income stream, no. Just as a way to lay down some words about your day at the end of it. Take a pen and a notebook and just write about your day. See how you feel after you write about it.
Trust me, writing is the best medicine you can ever take!
