I would like to start this post by saying thank you to every single person that has ever read any of my posts. I would also like to give a special shoutout to all the people (mostly my friends lol) that consistently read my posts. These past few years have been a rollercoaster and it has been such a mission to find the motivation to consistently share and post on my blog. It has also occurred to me that I have not really shared too much about myself directly and I would like to change that a little bit.
First things first the reason I started this website was because I needed some form of expression during a dark period in my life and I can’t tell you how proud of myself I am when I look back at my old posts and see the progression. Trust me there was a huge shift all thanks to God. It has also felt good to connect with myself and other people through my poems over the years and I am so grateful for that. The next thing I would like to share is that my life over the past 2-3 years has been a lot of transition, growth and just well life. Facing the real world and dealing with certain adult realities has sometimes taken the poetry from me and maybe even my voice a bit. I have realized that I have been going through the rhythm of life and that the words feel so far away. I have also not been super intentional about myself and maybe lost a little bit of myself. I promise myself and all my readers that I will be the girl again that hears the words buzzing in her head and feel the joy of them pouring out on paper in my heart once again. I will find the poetry in my life because its always been there.
I am also writing this post for anyone who has lost a little bit of themselves in this thing called life to remember who they are. To think of the thing that makes their heart sing and try to do it. Joy and peace aren’t abstract concepts and should always feel close to your heart. Take a deep breath and remember who you are lovelies.
