So today for me is all about reflecting.
It’s the start of a new month and most importantly we are already half way through the year, so I just wanted to take stock of everything I have written on here and remind myself of why I started writing in the first place.
You see a lot of people have often commented on my transparency in my blogs, some in a positive way and some in a negative way.
But the truth is, though – I don’t know how not to be honest in my writing or about how I feel. I have tried to, several times, and failed at it, several times. I can’t bite my tongue. If I feel shit, I feel shit. If I feel good, I feel good. If I am in love, I want to share that feeling with everyone. If my heart is broken, I want to share that with everyone too.
I want people to know both sides of the coin.
Ultimately there will be many of you who will hate what I write and what I reveal, and some of you may judge.
But I really do not care.
I am on a journey to try and find out who I am and what I believe in
And I purposefully make sure I talk about what I want to talk about.
About my truth.
I grow tired of meeting people, who can’t be vulnerable and tell me what they are really feeling.
In fact, I have been trying my utmost hardest to prune out from my life those sort of people and those sort of conversations. It’s boring and it’s a waste of my time and it’s a waste of your time too.
I feel I do not have the time or sanity to pop off into the corner to write about imaginary people or imaginary feelings.
So yes this is why I am so honest on here, whether the world understands or not is a conversation for a different day.
For me, it’s not about posting a picture of a me drinking a Virgin Mojito by a sunset, because, who cares?
It’s about providing value.
I want to add value to you and the moment I stop being honest, I stop adding value and then there’s no point of writing.
So many things I want to talk about but it’s taking so much time to spill onto a page.
These are just some of the blog posts I’d love to write but just don’t know which one to begin with. Any ideas?
