“Not all of us can do great things.But we can do small things with great love.”
At this age, I have been brought to the ups and downs of my life. I felt like there is a hole in my heart that I needed to fill. Like a missing part of who I am. I struggled real hard to find myself, I did so many things, I engage my self in doing activities in school, buy things others do, become an alien in front of a mirror. The more I do these things, the more I am becoming less myself.
Then one day I realize, I don’t need to look now where to find that missing piece. It is closer than I thought. A pen and paper are what I need and then I found this.
My passion for writing brought me to a wonderful journey of discovery.
I know now, that I don’t need to impress anyone, I don’t need to follow the trends and be someone I’m not. And I told myself ” their opinion should remain their opinion, who I am is not relative to what they want me to be”.
This blog is formed out of my love for writing, the thing that my heart seeks and where my soul will forever feel at ease.

And this time I will share 16 of my many learnings this year. So keep reading and enjoy. 😉
Be independent and learn how to be alonebecause not everyone will stay and thats a hard reality that we have to accept.
Take your time and do not rush things because if you’re rushing things the outcome is usually not what we expect and its okay to procastinate and be a sloth all you want but always make sure you have time for what you are really supposed to be doing.
They are our safe haven, our comfort zone and our place of abode in times of inderence and criticism from the harsh reality of our naked world so spend more quality time with these…
What if no one reads my blog? What if someone leaves me a really mean comment? What if I’m criticized? What if my ideas are only interesting to me? What if this blog is a mistake? What if I just go to sleep, instead?
Four years ago today, those were just a few of the questions that shook every bone in my body as I sat in my bedroom with the lights off, in the wee hours of the morning, and started this blog.
I think back to that moment quite a bit. It’s a good one.
At no point in my life did the thought of starting a blog ever cross my mind, until a few days before I actually did. As weird as it sounds, it felt like something I had to do. As if the universe was pushing me in that direction.
Silent star, it is as if I understand your wistful conversation. The verbs with which you shape your sentences entrance my heart so. I hear the yearning in the accented syllables of your speech, in the trill of your r’s, in your redolent display much like a jewel in the darkened sky – you […]
One of the most important lessons life teaches us all is that your struggles develop your strengths. It is the only way to go about it, actually.
Strengths develop over time, they develop by you overcoming obstacles and solving problems.
Which begs the question: why do people run away from their problems? Why not face them? Why deny they exist? Why put the blame on other people?
Well, for once: it can be a frustrating process.
I remember when I first started writing. Fourteen years old, I thought I was phenomenal. Most folks who read my stuff said I was either a retard or fourteen years old. I was both. Kinda.
The truth of the matter is that I had to overcome this obstacle: what people thought of my writing.
And I had to keep writing…
And I had to do the work when I didn’t feel like it, or…
