Questions from Melony Hill’s Writing for My Sanity Therapeutic Writing Workshop (@STMSBmore), held online.
“Healing requires from us to stop struggling, but to enjoy life more and endure it less.”—Darina Stoyanova
• When do you feel calm, peaceful, and in touch with your inner self?
I feel the greatest peace when I am out in the forest, or by the water’s edge. Something about being out in cool air and surrounded by greenery helps me to decompress, and I begin listening to myself more. I find that when things get busy, I’ll ignore the child that is inside me.
That child never stops talking, I just tend to drown it out.
• Is there anything that you want to do but feel unsure about? What is it and why are you so unsure about it?
I think that sometimes I rely too much on my ability to fly by the seat of my pants, which makes me not plan enough. I’m not sure I’m saying I want to feel more unsure, but I think that not feeling unsure contributes to not planning things well enough.
