The latest question from BlogHer’s Life Well Lived project is:
How does blogging, journaling, writing and connecting online help to increase your happiness?
I’ve always been a writer of sorts but I really connected with writing about five or six years ago when I decided to embark on a journalism degree as a foundation to a second career. At the same time my marriage was ending. Soon after that I started this blog interviewing other women about their post-divorce journeys. You can read how these interviews changed and shaped my writing project but more profoundly, they’ve shaped me.
Writing and sharing these stories has been a fundamental part of my healing and my personal growth. Without them, I would not be the person I am today. I’m emotionally stronger, healthier and more confident than I think I’ve ever been. I’m also happy and that happiness is an inner contentment with who I am.
In case I haven’t said it enough, thank you to everyone who’s agreed to share his/her story on blog, thank you to each of you that comments and thank you each of you that reads my posts.
