As if it was a newspaper …

There is Friday again and I feel like a columnist writing for a newspaper. I never thought I would keep that positive pressure on me to write and share a blog article every week. Since March 2018 this ritual is part of my week. A deal I made with myself. I was a reader, always and a talker(since I was very young I  shared my bold ideas) But writing was never part of the things on my weekly list before.

But I start to like it, thinking, writing, reading, adapting, rephrasing, sharing.

I still think that the best way to communicate is to speak. We may never forget that communication is the root on which all the humanity thrives. But I must say that writing helps me to actually speak better. When I write I structure my ideas more and it gives a certain clarity in my thinking. And having a writing record helps you to reflect on what you shared before…

I wonder if I sometimes inspire people with my words, the ones I speak and the ones I write…Do my Friday thoughts are as impactful as I would love them to be and should I take the writing more serious after more than 2 years?

The more I write, the more I am out there looking for stories that made me think and when the thoughts last for more than a while it is time to write them down.
