Welcome

Oh, you found me.

Lucid here. Some of you might recognize me from my former blog on Blogger. So goodbye Blogger, hello WordPress!

When I was much younger, I did not have many friends that I was comfortable to talk about the things I saw and felt. I would be writing down my thoughts, poetry, and song lyrics just about anywhere. It felt nice to let everything go. Then I would stay back in libraries to experiment different styles of writing. Before I knew it, I was having a voice of my own.

Time moves and changes people—the person I was 10 years ago would not have imagined that I’d be here today. I’ve found some beautiful people within the Writing Community on Twitter, and I am blessed to have them in my life for what they bring to this broken world.

I’ve started to open up more. I’ve learned to compromise on certain things. I’ve learned that we can all be different, and disagree on something, but there will always be a middle ground in which we will find ourselves more tolerant and accepting.

Now, I’m focusing on my work-in-progress, getting to know myself better in the silence, and sharing my story with strangers around the world. Other days when I’m stuck long in an emotional shower, I’ll be writing poetry… Never my strongest suite, but hey, it’s free therapy.

Perhaps. I am really happy. Do I have depression? Yes. Am I really happy? Yes. Right here. Right now. Maybe when you…
  • Dear friends.
    The last few couple of months have been incredibly rough, but also, beautiful. There is a light somewhere—and I’m choosing to focus on that light. If there’s one thing a lot of us struggle with, it’s believing that we are enough. For it’s hard to see one’s worth when the lows keep coming. Too often,…
  • Forgiving myself.
    Psychologists generally define forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness. Ask a person what their interests are or how they like their crush and they can tell you in great detail. But…

It is not worth an intelligent man’s time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that.
