Writing Changed My Life

Updated on November 8, 2016

I learned about making sheep's wool during my stay in South Africa. An interesting process to oversee.

Great Experiences!

Writing is not for everyone

Writing opens the mind

How did writing change my life?

I didn't plan to write online or off-line.

How did I get myself to put pen to paper and come this far in writing?

How did I open up and share my experiences online?


Sometimes I felt like I have mapped it all out in many ways. There were other times when I had felt like challenges have changed me a lot.

Writing helped me to gain more confidence and had allowed me to see my life in another perspective.

I found myself after the change hit me the hardest.

Often one finds themselves in such situations. Finding oneself after a series of events is not a mystery instead is a way of life.

You will find yourself once you have had experienced those hard times and for some other reasons.

You may think you have it all planned out until the surprise comes your way.

I viewed my life differently and felt like nothing will make an upset.

Everything in my eyes felt good and normal.

I did not get myself in a mess. I understood the events from all sides and that got me writing and talking about my experiences.

It is easy to try to fix what caused the mess but you can't fix what is broken.

Going back is not going to make you feel any better.

Laughter is a good medicine, and so is writing.

I know that from my series of events.

I began my journey to another way of life with my strong strengths, and my weak strengths.

I did not want my heart to feel the burden of my change.

Writing showed me the way to meet friendly people and to move on. I have made many decisions and followed my heart through these decisions.

The choices I made lead me to a different stage in my life.

I felt my soul broken when I could not put all the pieces together and knew once I had found the right path it will all come together in time.

My new life started to make sense when I saw the greatness in me come out through daily conversations.

Writing heals and that is exactly how I changed through my writing.

I am pleased with my progress on Hubpages and the community can help with just about any question.

A place where I can communicate freely and share my experiences with an open mind.

The ideas came flowing to me when I felt it was time to get on with my writing.

I enjoy exploring new ideas.

Meeting the people I chose to keep in my life for my own reasons has changed me in many ways.

I saw myself in a positive way.

I enjoy sitting down and talking to people who understand where I come from and who understand the changes from my past life, and of my present life.

The simple understanding of one's life makes no complications in speech.

I saw the value in those who are not like me.

I learned to take chances through writing.

Writing opened me up from the inside.

I enjoy what I do!

Do you have to lose yourself before finding yourself?

Sometimes that is just how life is, and what life becomes can make you want to go forward with your own change.

Getting out of that cage is your first step to a new journey.

Life is a journey don’t use life as a competition.

Writing helped me feel alive when I no longer knew what could get me out of that complicated life.

In the beginning writing felt like a roller coaster ride after a while writing felt a smooth ride to success.

I succeeded with a confident mind and a big heart.

Sometimes the many thoughts can bring on frustrations. Putting your thoughts on paper is a great idea.

I have become a better thinker. My focus is clear on life situations. I feel bold and can cope bravely.

What works for me may not work for everybody else.

Be patient!

I have been open in my writing and honest about my feelings.

It has been difficult to share what I have been going through for over a decade. The process healed me nicely.

My powerful thinking allowed me to feel this way.

Writing gave me the good day when I didn't have that day.

Writing brought me out of my shy moments.

Writing built my foundation into a steady platform.

I filled my days with writing when I didn't know how to.

I have a voice to put out there to my audience.

Writing showed me the way.

Writing encouraged me through thick and thin.

Has writing changed your life in any way?

Do you enjoy writing?

Can a good writer change the world?


Through sharing your passion to others online writing can make that difference.

It can be a process if you don't know what you want from life.

The most important factor to keep in mind, never give up!

Why don't give up?
Life is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest. To have these experiences you don't about. Focus on the best times and everything else will come your way, all in time.

Your passion can change your very own world.

The path you choose can change your life forever in a good way, or a bad way.

Your time greatly spent will show you your true self.

I know that sometimes writing can feel like a drag.

The way you think about life is the way you project your true being.

Writing made me feel brand new and I have become a new person. I write when I have time and best of all when I have a good focus. A great escape for me.

I have discovered myself through my writing.

I pursued writing through all times.

I write because I want to. I don't write to increase my bank balance.

I won't enjoy writing if I focused on my bank balance. Writing would be a bore and I would feel frustrated.

The experiences you have can be most uncomfortable to talk about. Try writing about it.

What you share can change lives of others.

Don't write to change the world that can be far from your reach, instead write to change the way you think.

Be positive and lovable!

It is most rewarding to read the encouraging comments from faithful followers.

Life can get in your way like it has for me this summer.

The tired days kept me away from the computer that did not mean I must stop writing.

Lessons learned in writing

Grasp the information creatively.

Writing is not just about writing.

Writing is not for everyone.

Dedication is another part of writing, and sharing your experiences.

Show the usefulness in what you write.

Reach your goals.

Read and write!

Writing changed my life and I will continue writing to make my voice heard.

Allow others to be moved by your work, Give your readers something to think about.

Use your sense of humor.

Learning the basics of writing is easy. You can write easily if you are in the right frame of mind.

      I definitely think writers can change the world. And, I totally agree with you that going back doesn't make you feel better. Going back won't heal you. It is only in moving forward that you grow. You have written a very inspirational message. I enjoyed reading it.

      Great hub Devika!

      I can say that for myself too. Writing has indeed changed my life for the better. Ideas keep my mind engaged and occupied even if I am not on my writing desk. And the best part is that they are all positive thoughts.

      I feel good when people read my work and if I make a positive difference to someone's life through my writing, it is a great feeling.

      Thank you for sharing your inspiring hub!

      I often tell people that the pen writes from where the lips are sealed. Fueled by emotions and instinct quite often the pen bleed truths that the writer may not even wish to reveal. Such is the dangerous power of the pen. Thank you for sharing your experience please continue to write. Good day. :)

      Thank you for sharing this! I think writing helps me in the same way dreaming does. It helps me deal with things and is cathartic.

      I wish writing could help my bank balance but I agree I can't focus on that. I have to write what I want, not how I feel I have to. Writing comes from the most genuine part of the soul. Or should, anyway. I do wish I could do what I enjoy for a living, however. I want to focus on what's most important to me, not just surviving for a paycheck.

      Great hub Devika. Writing is very therapeutic, instills confidence and is capable of curing many ills. It has certainly helped you.
