just write it

Have you ever wanted to write (or say) something but stopped yourself because you felt that it’d already been said, yet you read a quote a 100 times and each time it’s motivating and you take something new from it?

In today’s world of social media and incessant sharing it can be hard to feel original. I often times find myself stifled by the desire to write something meaningful with every stroke of the keyboard. In all honesty, that line of thinking is pretty selfish for two reasons…

1) I want to project an image that portrays everything I say as being profound. It’s not.
2) I might be robbing someone from something they needed to hear that day.

In one way or another, the truth is that (nearly) everything has already been said. It’s not our job to uncover the great mysteries of life, but to share in the daily lessons learned and experiences had. They matter, not only to you, but potentially to someone else.

If something is on your heart, write it. If a compliment is on your lips, say it.
