Since I was a young girl, I've had such a fascination with words and enjoyed writing poetry, journaling or putting my thoughts on paper. Realizing that it was due to my introversion that I find I express myself better on paper (or keyboard keys) than in spoken words was a relief. Lately, life has been challenging and in the busyness of it all, I had to learn to slow down once again. Navigating a chronic illness definitely requires one to slow down. And despite these challenges, I'm grateful to learn to slow down and I'm excited to be able to return to writing when the days aren't so hard. A few months ago I started to write poetry and focused on Haiku poetry, as it uses less words but still challenges creativity. Read more about Haiku here and I hope that you'll challenge yourself and try writing one too. Here's a Haiku I wrote as a tribute to the winter season, which is usually a challenging season for me:
