Welcome to my digital writing journal, or mydigitalclutter. What started as a family blog almost two years ago has morphed into my writing therapy. This is where I do a lot of free writing, mostly about my life with my family and the things that catch my interest. While nowhere even close to perfect, in each post I like to see how my writing is changing with time and practice. Most posts are left unedited for this reason, so if you don't mind, take the journey with me.

I wrote about the reason I was at the doctor’s office, and the decisions made to get to that point. I wrote about my feelings towards myself, Daniel, and my kids. I looked at pros and cons, something that I had done before making the decision, but it felt right to write them in my ramblings. As I continued, there began a cadence and rhythm to my words. Back and forth, to and fro, they began to weave into my mind the surety of my decision, and I was comforted.
I’m not sure why writing comforts me. Just as I like to escape into a good book when I’m in a bad mood, writing transports me to a place where I can deal with what is on my plate. For a moment or two, I am the one in control of what is placed on the page, where the outcome will be, etc. I must have some serious control issues, huh? Now if I could only channel these energies into writing something else….
