Editor’s note: Beginning my new chapter as a freelancer, I began reading my old articles for SUCCESS.com. I wrote this one in May 2015 after I realized how much I’d missed writing after the demands of management and corporate life took over. Now it serves as a great reminder why I love writing so much.

Without writing, I didn’t realize how “backed up” my mind had gotten.
Lately, I’d been so caught up in new SUCCESS projects that I didn’t realize how dusty my pen had become, how lonely my headphones were or how sorely missed was my Pandora One subscription. I just nearly gave myself a heart attack plugging in my headphones and turning on the app to find my volume at max. (Seriously, my left arm hurts now.)
