Writing

Hi there, Hattie here again! Hopefully you aren’t bored of me just yet because I have lots more to talk about. This week I thought it would be appropriate to share with you why I set up this blog. I mean obviously it is because I love art and want to share this passion with likeminded people but it is also because I love to write.

 

 

From a young age I have always written things down. I was never the most outgoing person and found it difficult to talk to people about how I was feeling. I think that is why I turned to writing. It gave me the freedom to express myself, my thoughts, feelings, desires and observations but there was no one there to judge me. I think as a teenager you can often feel insecure and lonely so it is good to have something that helps you process these feelings, a hobby of some kind. I guess mine was always writing. I have continued with this hobby of writing ever since and find that it to be a very therapeutic pass time and it helps me to process whatever it is that is on my mind. Before I make a big decision, before I speak to someone about an important topic, I will always write down my thoughts and feelings. It helps me to put things into a certain perspective and helps me to see things that much clearer. I think if more people did this then there would less arguments and a lot less  irrational decision making. Not everyone is like me though and some people are much more confident and comfortable making quick and spontaneous decisions. Anyway, aside from this I also think that writing is a great way to document your life which is another reason why I decided to set up this blog...
