Hi there, welcome to my blog, my home. 🙂
Why do I write?
Well… I used to write to continue living, and to have something to hold onto and remember who I was. I used to write in anonymity, wanting to voice out my haunting thoughts, and yet afraid of being heard and judged.
When I was 15, all I wanted was to run away from home, and find myself. I questioned my own existence, my destiny, and my identity. I questioned why I continue to live, and wondered why I chose my own choices. But those questions produced bigger questions, which then led to self-doubt and the feeling that you are lost.
When I was 17, all I wanted was to escape loneliness, and to understand the true meaning of friendships, love, and individuality. But the older I get, the simpler my dreams become. When I’m 19, all I hoped was to understand what true happiness means, and how could I experience it.
Now that I’m 22, when I feel that I understand a little bit better of what it means to live, and a clearer idea on what is my part in this world… I want to write to encourage others. To encourage you.
I wish to be able to somehow ignite a little spark in your heart, and invite you to see the world for its beauty and wonders, despite of its imperfections. I want to share the joy in little things, and pause you from simply going through the motions for a moment.
No, I don’t pretend that I know all of the answers.
But I guess, finally, I am no longer afraid to speak.
I hope that through this blog, I would be able to share with you the world as seen through my eyes… and paint a little color over your own world. 🙂
