I have decided to join a 30 day writing challenge. Writing is so cathartic, so healing, and such a big piece of my trauma healing tool-kit that a writing challenge makes sense – so hear we go!
Day 1 Prompt – Write a Letter of Intent Regarding This Writing Challenge
I don’t know if this will be so much a letter – as an essay to myself about why I signed up for this challenge in the first place.
I have always wanted to be a writer, anyone who follows me on social media or reads my blog knows that. It is why I so naturally found this platform as a medium for expression and connection when I began my healing journey.
A couple days ago, I set an intention into motion when I clicked on a link and submitted to be a part of a 30-day writing challenge. A challenge focused on using writing as a catalyst for healing.
I love this kind of stuff, it is right up my alley. It helps me get the wheels spinning and my own thoughts prompted to reflect, to imagine, to process –
I Want to Be a Participant This Time
So often I am the one who is thinking of the prompts, helping others to dig deeper within themselves – it is exciting to be the person joining in rather than leading. I don’t always want to lead, that gets so exhausting.
I am looking forward to being led through this month of writing with prompts and ideas from someone else’s head. I hope to connect with other survivors, to connect more with myself, and to explore my healing through writing as I find the answers to who I am and who I want to be.
I also hope this challenge will bring me back to this site. I am far more active on Instagram these days but this is where I started my healing journey and where I find immense amounts of comfort.
I hope you will journey with me the next 30 days, who knows what I will be writing about next!
