Have you asked yourself why you do what you do?
I asked myself why I write and here is the answer that I came up with.
I write because I want to. My writing on my blog does not make me any money at least directly. If I really did not want to write then no other reason will be strong enough to motivate me to write every day.
There are other reasons too.
I write to download what is in my head.
I write to connect with myself.
I write to record what I am thinking about.
I write to find solutions to challenges that come across.
I write because I see it as a privilege.
I write to keep my thinking and writing muscles active.
I write to make sure that I don’t stagnate because writing makes me feel as if I am alive and doing something worthwhile.
I write because I use it as one of my habit anchors, much like a form of meditation. So I can write and feel grounded when other things are moving around.
