Well, ready to give it a go!
I tend to do things my own way so I have decided not to surf the net for ages trying to find the best way to start my blog… mainly because I am not willing to get trapped in the whirl of panicking in order to come to the perfect first blog writing.
After a few years of having lost myself somewhere down the road of life I managed to get back on the track of just being me. So rewarding! I had put aside far too many things for far too long. I guess I woke up one day and decided that I was tired of constantly acting and pretending to be someone who was not me. Glad I did it! Life can be tough at times, but one should try not to get carried away and delude the self-essence in the woods of desolation. And believe me, it is great to arise from your own ashes (as the phoenix did) and be you again!
The world we live in is endlessly pushing us to mirroring what we see in the social media as well as to forget to value ourselves for who we are. One day we are going to leave this world (hopefully later than sooner taking into account the current situation) and I don’t want to glance back and find out that I lost the chance of just being me.
It takes time, courage and a great effort to be brave enough to be true to yourself but it is more than worth it! If I were to regret something it would only be not having get myself back! Have I said “Brave”? The princess Merida! I often relate myself to her, as very bold, brave, daring, courageous, stubborn, rebellious and headstrong! If I let my curly hair go wild, I definitely look like her, which makes me proudly smile!
I’d better quote the famous “Be yourself everyone else is already taken” by Oscar Wilde. Wise words themselves, indeed. I do keep them in mind, especially on those days when I feel a bit blue and me being me doesn’t make much sense. I am at the point that I’d rather me than someone else who I cannot relate to (at least most of the times).
How does all this lead to my passion for writing and eagerness to get my blog up and running? Well, it is a matter of confidence which only comes when you are content with just being yourself. Feeling in the need to add, a bit of boldness is also a must!
It was in my early teens when I started to feel the urge to put words down in paper, whether it was a few lines, a poem or my thoughts. My teens! Time flies, isn’t it? Over the years, I have always made sure to carry a piece of paper (or a notebook) and a pen with me wherever I go, just in case words pop up unexpectedly. Unexpected words are the best, as so are unexpected new memories. Even in these modern times, my smartphone does not match my old school requirements, you cannot beat the feeling of writing on paper while using a pen!
I am looking forward to sharing my passion for writing with whoever dares to read my posts. Ready for my new challenge but time for my first blog post to come to an end.
