What makes you happy while you’re doing it? Or, more importantly, what gives you a sense of purpose?
This post is to officially announce the launching of my personal freelance writing business. I am a writer for hire!
As someone who has struggled with mental illness much of my life, and in the wake of the tragic suicides of people such as Kate Spade, Anthony Bourdain, Tyler Hylinski, and the countless others not in the celebrity spotlight that take their lives every day, I felt the need to make a short post about the importance of tending to our mental health.
I’m probably just off reading a book, typing away, walking the dog, or sitting in the grass somewhere, thinking about absolutely nothing.
There’s nothing more pure than art that comes from a real place
I still occasionally find myself crawling out of my chair in my office and lying on the floor, staring up at the white popcorn ceiling, yellowed by the soft light of my lamps, getting lost in the sea of texture, and losing any momentum I had previously gathered.
That’s not to say I’m not appreciative of the things in my life that I do have, it just means I want to take that next step, and continue progressing.
