Hello again. I think this is the third time I’ve said hello on this blog. I’ve been gone for a long time now and recently I’ve had the sudden urge to check this blog out and take it out of the dust once and for all. (Oh, the many times I’ve said that line…)
For the followers that follow this blog, I apologize for disappearing. Life happened. When I first started this blog, it was an outlet for me to express myself through poetry. To describe the rawness of the feelings I had pent up inside as I was going through the motions of college. Well, fast forward a couple of years, with Nike shoes worn out from traveling throughout Europe, a bachelors of science in architecture, and the constant love and support during my dark times with life after graduation, I’m back here where I first started. Ready to take on a challenge. What challenge is that, you all might ask?
It is the challenge of growth and evolution. The challenge of pushing forward and leaping boundaries I haven’t even thought before and that are now coming to light. The challenge of loving myself again and for acceptance. And that challenge is the challenge of CREATION. I consider myself as an artist of all sorts deep down. But by doing this challenge, I hope to find myself again through it all. I want to ALWAYS CREATE. Create to the point of eliminating all the negativity and toxicity that hovers over my life right now and towards the future that are full of distractions, complaints, worries, anxieties, insecurities, etc.
Now, how in the world do I go about that, seeing my record of inconsistency on this blog? I think it is time for me to change that. Once and for all. This blog is going to be REVAMPED and REWIRED. I want to channel different areas of my interests and to create every day, 365 days of the year. If I can accomplish that…hopefully I can find myself again and also love and accept myself once more. Here’s to the start of something new.
There’s a quote that I held so close to my heart after crawling out of my dark moments every now and then and I want to share it with you all:
“Pressure is required to produce diamonds and fire is required to refine gold. Shine.”
I can’t remember where I got this quote from but it always repeated in my head non-stop. And so, I want to end this post with a little spin from this quote that will become my mantra and the essence of what this blog/outlet will provide me and you all:
