A valuable realization that I’ve recently come to:
Blogging isn’t a waste of time; it is a different way of being productive.
I used to feel bad about spending time blogging when I knew I should have been doing homework. Let’s face it though, sometimes homework just doesn’t happen. If I wasn’t writing, I’d probably be staring at Facebook for an ungodly amount of time anyways. Let’s see…which one sounds more productive now–blogging or Facebook?
Gone are the days of feeling bad about blogging. It’s how I de-stress, hence why I’ve been posting an exceptional amount lately.
Since returning to writing on a regular basis, my mental well-being has improved vastly. I feel more confident about myself and more in control of my life when I write.
With that in mind, I’d say I’m using my time pretty wisely. Homework will get done eventually.
Do you find yourself blogging (or writing more in general) under stress? What does writing mean to you?
