WordPress was the first outlet which allowed me to write and connect with a range of people from different walks of life. The journey has been beautiful and I have made great friends through my writing.
In the past few weeks I started shared my writing on Instagram and I am loving the vibe and various connections made with people from near and far. It fills me with elation to write, share and meet people with the same passion.
If you have any requests, suggestions or feedback please do not hesitate to contact me.
This piece relates to my first love. He was once mine but he fell in love with a stranger while we were at a party. I guess my naive state of mind believed our love was real and would last forever. I do not regret loving him or this experience. There is always a valuable lesson in such experiences. In this instance, do not fall in love with a Hanson lookalike.
I attended the funeral of a sweet 8 year old boy who fought a courageous battle with cancer. I can’t make sense of why children are taken so soon. The parent’s eulogies were uplifting and spoke of a son who never complained throughout his treatment, who in the end comforted them in their pain. This boy lived a full and meaningful life and has left a large footprint in the hearts of many. His strength of character is admirable and motivating to the human essence. Young man you have given me hope for my own path in my life, thank you. I became overwhelmed with emotion at the cemetery when I glanced at his mother who displayed an immense sense of grief. I closed my eyes and in the distance I could hear her deep whimpering and it broke my heart. Love your loved ones with all that you are. Say and do all that you want to do. Life is precious.
I had the pleasure to collaborate with a fellow writer and friend. iron_word via Instagram. These words echo the love/hate mechanism in relationships. At times when I am fuelled with anger my ears want nothing but silence from the people I love. The rest of the time, their words are the sunshine of my life. That make sense? lol
