I told my husband that I’ll definitely have to use that idea of having a Nemo moment when life hits me hard. Life is all about perspective and sometimes I allow my circumstances to overwhelm me and don’t always easily trust that God has a greater purpose for everything that I’m going through. Being content in all circumstances is not always easy, but trying, does help you get through those trying times. In small group last night, we discussed this same topic of how in life, trials happen but striving to be content in all circumstances is helpful to keeping the right perspective.
So, do you have a happy place? I love spending time at home with my husband and also spending time with family and friends. However, sometimes life brings craziness and it can come in the form of dealing with relationships. One reason that I enjoy writing is that it is a therapeutic outlet for me. Diving into my current WIP is fun and I get to escape my own life but for a moment and it allows me a chance to breathe and relax. I’m sure my fellow writers out there will understand this happy place in writing.
Do you find that when you write, it’s therapeutic for you? Is writing a happy place for you? I’d love to find out your thoughts on this subject. Please feel free to comment. Have a great weekend and watch for my interview with author, Sarah Sundin, this Monday.
