One thing I love about reading and writing

One thing I love about reading and writing is that reading, or crafting, one exquisite sentence can make your whole day. It's like returning home and going on a grand adventure all at once. (1)Hi guys, it’s day 5 Mental Health Awareness and I’m falling behind in my goal to blog twenty times this month (been watching the Blazers vs. Golden State a few evenings).

I’m working on a blog (or two) on Eight Practices to Let Go of Perfectionism in Parenting but in the meantime here’s a quick thought on reading and writing I had driving home today.

It’s very much like counseling: finding yourself and discovering something new, at the same time.

One of my favorite parts of working with clients is when they say something true about themselves that they hadn’t realized or when they say it in a way that makes it clear that they aren’t just saying it with their head but they are believing it in a new way or really believing, deep down inside, for the first time.

Are you a writer?  What are you writing about these days?

What are you reading?  Do you have a favorite sentence you’ve read recently?
