Why Do I Write...

Wow... ok, so I was tagged on a twitter post and someone asked me "why do I write?"

(Our mission: Ladies please tell us in a post, Why You Write? Please also tag 5 others and offer them 3 pearls of wisdom for other writers/bloggers.)

So let's get down to it... I will start off by saying, I began this blog because my very good friend Beth Sheldon Badore, best known as Melting Mama, told me to. She said I need to start blogging. I had been toying with the idea but it was her push that made me actually do it. 

Now that I have started blogging, although I don't do it consistently, I keep it going for many many reasons. 

Therapy: It eases my mind and helps me to let go of what is weighing heavily in my heart. While I don't always  put it all out there, this blog definitely serves as a form of catharsis when I need it to. 

Support: Isn't it nice to know you're not alone? There have been times I have sat down to blog and I will get a reply saying... "OMG I sooo needed this today! Thank You!" To everyone of you who has ever sent one of "those" messages, just know there is strength is numbers! If I feel "that way" and so do you, chances are pretty good so do others! 

Shameless self promotion: Yep I said it. I sometimes blog so that people will oooh and ahh with me and at me. Everyone deserves an ego boost! I sometimes blog to promote my practice. I am currently accepting appointments by the way for both my live and virtual couch! I sometimes blog to promote others too. The OAC mostly falls into this category. I have also promoted events for Obesity Help and my surgeon. 

I write to get information and give information. I write to help you see things in a new light. A re-vision of your own. Perhaps about body image, or the infamous "food addiction". I write about good things and not such great things, ups and downs. I write for you and I write for me. Ok now I am starting to sound like a Dr. Seuss book. 

So now I am supposed to give you three pearls of wisdom...
  • Be honest
  • Be yourself
  • Be passionate
