“Write to be understood, speak to be heard, read to grow...”

Recently, I heard people wondering where I get the time to write blog.
I am sure all my blog friends will never ask this and will understand how one does this.

I have understood one thing if one is passionate about something they will make sure they do that – but that doesn’t mean you forget all your other responsibilities.

I want to tell my friends who ask this question – I am passionate about writing but that doesn’t mean I don’t do any work at home or shy away from my responsibilities.

“Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.” ~ Angela Monet
I remember those days when I used to write posts everyday in blog then things started getting busy, responsibilities increased and my daily writing hobby turned to weeks and months.

You can never achieve anything in life by focusing on only one thing and even if you do so that doesn’t show one’s greatness as completeness is always in doing everything without fail.

“Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.” ~ Hebbel

Do you think if a mother gives birth to a child and then doesn’t take care does that show that mother is a complete mother?
I hear everyone says a mother is great because she carries a child in her womb for 9 months and goes through the pain to deliver.

But I believe every mother (human or animal) they if conceived will always goes through the pain to deliver. But then after delivering the kid how a mother takes care of the child is the true motherhood.

“The mother loves her child most divinely, not when she surrounds him with comfort and anticipates his wants, but when she resolutely holds him to the highest standards and is content with nothing less than his best.” ~ Hamilton Wright

So friends, when I have some turbulence in my heart and mind I make sure that I put it on paper and if that needs a sacrifice then I will make sure that I do it.

Many times, I have written blog when I am at lunch eating with right hand and typing with left! Many times I write after work sitting in the office and so many other moments.
As many times the surrounding people can be encouraging to the writers but can be also creating hindrance by not allowing.

I believe in expressing as that’s my birth right.

“Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.”

A good message to all those who think we do nothing but blogging :)

The quote from Angela Monet was apt.

You should teach me how to type with just one hand :)

Excelled flow of thoughts..

nobody should have to explain why and how they get time to you said writing is a passion and if you love it enough you will find time to write and thats only if you want to.sometimes one does not feel like writing.and that is ok.I took a break for six months.I love your posts and the quotes as well. Love this one"“Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.” That is so true.
