The funny thing is I don’t have a lot of spare time but something I find myself doing a lot during my spare time is write, write, write, and write! If you haven’t got it yet I love to write; writing helps me get my thoughts out and onto the paper, helps me organize important tasks that I have to do, allows me to speak my mind without speaking, remember the things I have to remember, reflect on things I want to look back on, and accept the things I have no control of.

Most of the time I spend after I write or type is spent revising my work. I like to read what I wrote so that I can revise and edit in order to produce my best work.

I try to get all of my thoughts out there at one time so I know I can throw it away and or see where my head is. Whether I’m laughing, making a joke, and or telling a story I enjoy time spent communicating with my closest friends. I often also find my self-noticing–  I learned this from my mother because she has to type every day, and I read over her work before she submits it.  I used to hate this task when I was younger, but the more I did it, the more I realized how much I loved it.

Now, I need to sit down and think and plan so I don’t get frustrated inside my own head. Some people sing and write songs, and I used to do that too as a way to express my feelings and my creativity.

This type of activity isn’t for everyone, but it’s like a venting type of thing that I like to do in my spare time.  You should take the time out one day to breathe and put your mind at ease. In your free time to assess where  your thoughts are whether it is after a peaceful or a frustrating day, try writing down as a way to reflect.
