I have a conscience.

My mind had not really sparked a light for wanting to write anything in particular these past few months as I was so busy prepping for an array of things. Things that do not concern writing, after all writing is my side hobby, my side job and somehow, something that I have become accustomed to quite quickly. Although, I will say there is pressure to release written material when I am no way a writing professional and needless to say, it is not everyday that I have stories to tell, feelings to spill. But should I feel bad about that? Well, no of course not. Except here’s the deal: everyone has expectations. You have expectations for yourself, as do your parents, siblings, friends and lover. You will also have unconscious expectations of all the things around you: the food you eat, the music you listen to, the places you go. It happens. If the feelings meet or even go as far as to surpass the expectations, you’ll feel fulfilled, joyous, exhilarated. However, if the expectations are …

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.

I found past results sheets from university. And I know…somehow the word ‘university’ always creeps back into my blog posts, but it is one of the things that has served me well in life. 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 …

Change is the way I feel good

A lot can happen in a year even though it seems that each year that goes past as we get older, goes quicker like sand that seeps through our fingers. In the past 12 months or so, I could not tell you enough of the changes that I have been feeling mentally and emotionally. That is not to say changes can’t be physical either but really, I am so positive that all of you have woken up in a different light many times in your life (if you have not, you are either lying or about to experience it soon enough smiley face). I could also not tell you enough that I have had the most riveting, and emotionally challenging year that was full of the tears, the laughters, that feeling of heart-in-stomach as well as distress. How often does it happen that in the end there might have actually been nothing to worry about in the first place? Yep, happens all the time but we humans, just have to deal with our emotions being …
