Taking the time to renew yourself
Taking time for yourself is uncommon these days. We are always so busy running around. Either we are working or doing something for someone else. This morning I went back to the writing group, it had been awhile since I was there, it is where I started down the road to recovery. I remember the first day I went, how sick I was, how sad I was, and how empty I felt. The day before I went to writing group, when I left the hospital, I had planned to go to the writing group. I found it on the meetup website and told my doctor I had to get discharged, so I could go. I wasn't really hesitant to share, I think I was really wanting to put my story out there. It was part of me, it was where I was at the time, it was my story. The more I wrote and shared, the more connected I felt with the writers in the group. Now 5 years later, the group has seen my transformation. They have seen me rise up from the sick, weak girl that I was to the strong and confident woman I am today. If it weren't for the writing group and taking the time for myself, that day, I don't think I would be where I am today. I am grateful for taking the time for myself and joining a group that has really seen me through quite a journey.
