Finding enlightenment is not always an easy task with our busy, hectic day-to-day lives. As winter is still sticking around for the foreseeable future, taking the time to snuggle up indoors for some relaxation might be just what you need. Writing is a great way to wind down, relax, and work towards your own enlightenment. While you relax and write, you should be reflecting positively on your life, past and present. The more you write, the more likely you are to achieve a sense of enlightenment. Work to make writing a daily practice in your life.

It’s no secret that Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. All of the pink and red hearts and candy that surround us at stores across the country serve as a reminder that the international holiday of love is upon us. There are so many gifts that you could pick up for your significant other or loved ones. Jewelry, chocolate, flowers…the list goes on. But what about adding a little more of a personalized touch to your gift? The perfect way to do that would be to handwrite a love letter.

Sometimes you may struggle to say out loud how you truly feel about someone or find it hard to tell someone how much they mean to you. When in doubt, write it out. Such a big part of finding enlightenment through writing is being able to express yourself without constraints and fears. A love letter allows you the freedom to put all your deepest feelings down on paper. Handwriting love letters make them all the more special and personal.

Another unique way to express your love for someone is through poetry. Poetry can be straightforward or abstract, and still get your declaration of love across. Use your creativity and write from the heart when drafting poems. You don’t have to be the Bard or T.S. Eliot when it comes to poetry, but the special person in your life will appreciate the gesture more than you know.
