Hardwired to Write

I took one of my children to the doctor a few weeks ago for a routine check-up. My children see several of the doctors there and they are all fantastic.

The one that we were meeting with a few weeks ago is always so pleasant and kind, she is very caring and likes to carry on a conversation to make everyone feel more comfortable.

An Interesting Conversation 

The doctor and I were just making small talk as they checked my child over. I asked her how she’s been doing. She asked me how I was and then she asked me a surprising yet thoughtful question.

The pediatrician stopped the exam for a brief moment and asked me what I do to relax after taking care of my young children all day. It felt awkward because after all, we were here for my child’s visit and not for me, but the fact that she cared enough to ask truly melted my heart.

Everyone is Different 

I proceeded to tell her that my favorite ways to unwind are being out in nature and writing. She looked up at me and said “wow, you like to write!?” I told her that I absolutely love to write and I always have.

The pediatrician was finishing up with the exam and was busy making my little one laugh and making the visit as bearable as possible.

Right before we left, the doctor told me to keep writing and pursuing my passion. She told me how she thinks writing is such a beautiful form of art. I asked her if she enjoys writing as well, to which she replied, “my brain doesn’t work like that!”

It was so interesting to me that our brains all work in different ways. She is so bright and very knowledgeable about the human body. Her brain is wired in such a way that she is capable of being a doctor! I wish that my brain could work in that way, but I am not cut out for it.

I Was Amazed

I have seen several amazing doctors on this platform who are also writers, they have the gift of both abilities!

This very response got me thinking, what creates a writer? Is it our love for expression, our deep way of thinking? Is it an obsession with words and the way that they come together to create a beautiful story?

One could think of many reasons and perhaps it is a combination of things. Some are born to write and others discover their love later on in life.

Part of My Soul

One thing for sure is that writing is an actual part of me. It is a part of my soul, and I would be lost without it.

Maybe it’s safe to say that some people are hardwired to write!
