Write or Not?

I had thought of starting writing an autobiography. I started working on it, and my mom saw me getting tired and tense, something that usually happens when I'm not well. So I stopped working on it on her advice. But then I wanted to work on something spiritual and she told me not to do that either. Humph!
So I started thinking what to do as my hols have almost started. Well, then I had a talk with my mom and she told me that you can do it as long as your health remains alright. So I've started working on the autobiography :) But I've definitely started feeling a bit tired, though I think I can handle the strain by doing my meditation regularly, something that I did during my whole set of exams. I want your opinions on whether I should continue or not...

Dear Pulzi,
Once more you astonish me with the challenges that you undertake. The writing of one's autobiography is an enormous task, but it brings with it the opportunity for enormous personal benefits to you. You have repeatedly illustrated your hunger for knowledge. In the process of relating what you consider to be the most important parts of your life, you are sure to gain a wealth of self knowledge. Perhaps that knowledge may give you new and potentially exciting insights into your illness that you have never considered before. I realize that your mom is hesitant about this project because she doesn't want your health to be adversely affected. If you write for pleasure, however, and do not make it just one more "have to", I think she will see that this is a very positive idea. Please do not think that because you shared your thoughts on the possibility of doing this, that this means that now you must do it. Sometimes we think about doing something, and sometimes we actually do it. Thinking and doing are both terrific!
I applaud you, Paula

Dear Puzli,

I agree with Paula that it would be a quite an insightful experience to write your autobiography. Yes,at times even I have noticed that if you get too involved with something (even though it may be somehting creative), it might have an adverse affect on you, particularly your obsessiveness might increase. But as Paula says and you yourself agree, just take it easy. Be persistent but take care not to overexert yourself and Iam sure you will come up with something constructive.

So, Wishing you really well for your new endeavour and hoping I get to read your stuff soon. (nah don't expect to go and buy the copy from market, Iam banking to get it free from you :-) )

Take Care.

Warm Regards
