The letter!

Hi pooka family!  I know I've been mia! I've been consumed with pooka but I know I can't forget my family! 
Recently I had some issues with someone and the communication had gotten bad.  I was feeling annoyed and frustrated so I did what I always do,  I wrote a letter!  I've always been a journaler, I love documenting my life!  I have journals dating back to 5th grade. I always laugh when I read how much I loved the paperboy (do they even have paper boys anymore,  lol! I feel old) or when my mother wouldn't let me wear my favorite jeans to school.  I love seeing my handwriting at that age or just remembering what I was feeling at some point in life.  So back to current day,  the situation of course, involves a man ( ughhh, I'm sure 5th grade dawn still didn't think she'd be dealing with this stuff,  I should have married that damn paper boy!)  After poor communication with him,  I was frustrated and couldn't sleep.  So I prayed on it. But I just tossed and turned.  I prayed some more and it came to me clear as day,  write a letter.  So I started writing and boy was it good!  I realized writing is therapeutic for me.  I was able to write everything I felt and the best part?  Letters don't interrupt you,  they don't correct you,  they don't wanna tell their side,  they don't bring up your past,  they don't give you silly analogies,  they just let you express yourself,  uninterrupted AND in your letters you're always right! !!
As I was writing this, letter I felt my spirits lifting,  this letter was flowing,  I was in the zone, watch out Shakespeare!
 I was using where for art thous and everything!  It was pure literary genius (to me anyway! )   The best part was I said everything I wanted to say,  it was out of my system and off of my plate.  After a frustrating evening,  I slept peacefully. 

I wanted to share this so that whenever you find yourself in a frustrating communication situation,  pray and write a letter.  I promise you'll feel better.  You decide if you want to send it or not, but at least you've gotten it out of your system . The worst thing for your physical and emotional health is too have bottled up thoughts and emotions.

Starting today write your letters!
