A lot of things has happened since July 2014.

Hopes. Dreams. Love. Broken-hearts. Anger. Frustration. Pressure. Happiness. Joyfulness. Conquering fears. Fighting the ordinary to be out of the ordinary. Breaking the society's depiction of normal life. Living in nomadic mode. Insecurity. Uncertainty. Alive. Infatuated. Passionate.

I am no longer the person that I was 2 years ago. Today, I am standing stronger and fearless. The past two years have been one of the greatest learning curves which I am very much grateful of; I have found myself, I was able to break free from the "jail" of working in the corporate world.

I am the happiest as I could ever be.

An Ironic Reward for a Beautiful Heart

Beautiful hearts are hard to find, and to reward them when we do find them, we convince ourselves that they're too good for us. What a reward. Instead of holding onto them, we pull ourselves away. We push them away. We forget that the beauty of their hearts come from their ability to love and from their willingness to liberate those whose hearts have caged themselves in the past.

I Choose Me

"Most of my life has been spent trying to shrink myself.
Trying to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy. Less me.
Because I didn't want to be a burden.
I didn't want to be too much or push people away.
I wanted people to like me.
I wanted to be cared for and valued.
I wanted to be wanted.
So for years, I sacrificed myself for the sake of making other people happy.
And for years. I suffered.

But I'm tired suffering, and I'm done shrinking.
It's not my job to change who I am in order to make someone else's idea of a worthwhile human being.
I am worthwhile. Not because other people think I am, but because I exist, and therefore I matter.
My thoughts matter.
My feelings matter.
My voice matters.
And with or without anyone's permission or approval, I will continue to be who I am and speak my truth.
Even if it makes people angry.
Even if it makes them uncomfortable.
Even if they choose to leave.
I refuse to shrink.
I choose to take up space.
I choose to honor my feelings.
I choose to give myself permission to get my needs met.
I choose to make self-care a priority.
I choose me"
