Word Therapy

DSC_0860

Sometimes things happen that blow you away and you don’t know what to do with the thoughts and emotions that linger long after others seem to have moved on.  I know I’m not the only one.

Can I make a suggestion?

Write.

Write about things even if you aren’t a “writer.”  Write journal entries, write poems and stories, write prayers, write mean, little lists if you have to.

Just don’t let those things (good or bad, but mostly bad) stay inside your mind, cold and friendless.  Don’t let events that need words to shape them walk around naked in perpetuity.  Wrap them up in verbs and adjectives.  Cover them with nouns.

You’ll be better for it and, in some small way, so will the world.
