Over the last few years, I’ve become a strong advocate of writing and I encourage you to try it as well.
I believe writing allows you to decompress, as well as the opportunity to help others.
To summarize a stoic philosophical conversation:
A philosopher was asked:
“What was the objective of all the trouble over a piece of craftsmanship when it would never reach more than a few people?”
The philosopher answered: “A few is enough for me, so is one, so is none. I am writing this not for the many, rather for myself, or for you alone, for each of us is an audience for the other”.
This year, you might want to incorporate writing into your daily or weekly routine or at least when something is troubling you, to see if it helps gets you over whatever hurdle you’re facing.
