DatFunkyFro News : Tagged - Why I Write!

The lovely Kiianah of Rockin' it Napptural  recently tagged me to share with you lovely ladies why I write.

The truth of the matter is, I love writing. 

Writing started for me early in middle school during writing workshops and soon, I took a liking to it and it became an hobby fast. So much so that I started writing my own short stories and swapped with my baby sister who was also doing the same. 

I loved writing my own stories because I loved reading and making up my world, situations, characters and  the rest.

But generally, I love writing, whether it be a story or not. In fact, it's only been recently that I noticed how much I also loved writing about everyday stuff, sharing my thoughts etc. It was only when I started my blog that I realized how much I loved writing about my hair and informing other naturals on what I was learning and doing...

It felt great to share.

Seriously it did.

The satisfaction of writing a post about this or that for the benefit of others is amazing.

Here are the main reason why I write :

I write to educate, inform and emancipate.

 I write to share my thoughts, to discuss pressing matters and address issues that are really hot on my mind

I love to hear from others. In fact, if you didn't know, writing is a way to learn from others. I increase in learning by all your lovely comments and discussions.

I have so many things to say...sometimes I feel like getting up in the middle of the night and write it all down

Here are my pearls of wisdom :

Matthew 6 : 34 - "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own". Why worry? Worrying does zero good to the health and changes absolutely nothing and as the Bible has rightly pointed out, "each day has it's own trouble of it's own". Instead of worrying, press on forward.

Psalm 27 : 1 - "The LORD is my light and my salvation--whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life--of whom shall I be afraid?" Do not fear, not be shaken, do not be afraid. The world might shake, tremble and over turn for all I know but something's certain, the Lord is my salvation, always and in Him will I always trust.

Keep yourself educated. I do not believe in going with whatever the media or the crowd is saying. I do not go with their flow, but rather, inform myself and know what is really good for me. As we all know, and is one of my slogans, "knowledge is power".

So the end of the matter is : live, love, laugh... and give all the Glory to God!!
