since I've wrote a blog.
I realize, more and more, that writing is very much a part of me. It's my sanity-saver and my motivator. I've also correlated a higher level of productivity when I am writing more often. You would think this is a no-brainer for me to accomplish, yet I still don't set aside time to write. I need to prioritize a blog into my daily routine! If I schedule meals and workouts for a good physical state, I should do the same with writing for a good mental state.
I would only assume one who has a passion for writing, gains the same kind of satisfaction I get when I've completed a great post that has literally inspired myself. I'm sure I could insert several factual statistics about writing increasing/maintaining intelligence, expanding your imagination and creativity, reducing stress and (on a personal level) developing and collecting my personal thoughts about life.
I find myself, as a person, in my writing.
I better myself, as a person, in my writing.
I teach myself, in my writing.
I learn from my mistakes, in my writing.
