What They Never Taught You

I have been meaning to talk about the below video for some time now. Since its release, I’ve actually viewed the recorded piece over ten times. It went perfectly with what I had wanted to talk about for a long, long time, but I didn’t quite know how to express these thoughts. Of course, am more than glad that there are others who share similar thoughts to me. Since starting this blog, I knew I wanted to write things that were meaningful, thought-provoking, brave and graceful – but how does one share this slice of cake to the internet? I don’t remember another time where I took so long to draft a piece but hopefully, this is it. (Otherwise, we could be here for a long time). Normally, writing can come quite fluidly to me but this time has proven difficult. How does one communicate a thought, an idea in exactly the way they are thinking it, picturing it? Being misunderstood or misinterpreted isn’t quite part of the plan – and that’s the problem. We think there’s a perfect way to …

Finding inspiration from past comments

To be honest, I don’t really understand how one can accumulate so much clutter, but I happen to find something to clean out every few months. And it’s always a lot of paperwork/letters in an organised mess in one of my drawers. I keep a lot of things. For fear that one day, something will become of use (99% of it is pure trash but we’re always thankful for that 1% that has been kept due to some utter importance). So what did I find, you ask?

I don’t know how often people read back on entries from the past such as a diary, a Facebook comment, a letter but even those mere 10-100 words hold some secret. Growth. Forgiveness. Nurture. Don’t be so hard on yourself. You were actually doing really well anyway, why the stress? (Aside with many, many other piercing …

Special Thanks to ‘M’

It is no surprise that everyone goes through a ‘phase’, at which half the time, you find that it is a personal battle. Otherwise, it is a state of growing up and well, a part of life which eventually, you move on from. Things can only truly get better. And when you’re really young, you take such statement for granted and think of the worse, when in reality, the ‘worse’ has barely touched you. Now, I realise things can only truly get better…the best is yet to come. Of course, growing up and becoming an actual ‘adult’ takes time to feed on. Even I am just about getting used to it all. Sounds silly, right? But there is one thing that I’ve learned and that I want to share on this blog. I used to be a really quiet and shy kid. Admittedly, I still am that person because that will never go away but I’ve developed into someone being more sure of herself. I remember about two or three years after finishing high school, …
