My Dear Friend,
It's been a while, and I just wanted to share something good with you: I've resumed writing.
After seven years of continuous writing, in 2019, I lost my sense of direction; I lost focus and could not find my voice, and was no longer able to put my thoughts on paper. For over seven years, writing had become a way to find comfort, a healthy habit for my mind. But after hitting a dead end, I decided to take a break and step away from writing; I simply halted from it.
Recently, upon revisiting my writings, I recognized their impact not just on me but on others; people were listening. I realized we had built a community, a support group. Many individuals offered encouragement and support, urging me to resume writing and embark on this journey once again.
Expressing myself through writing has always been challenging, requiring genuine motivation to take a seat and start. After being idling for almost five years, I feel ready to embrace this journey once again.
Like for all of us, these past few years have been humbling: the pandemic, family matters, business, health, and more have taught us, plenty. It's an acknowledgment that even when we believe we've learned and prepared enough, there's always more to discover. Each day presents challenges, temptations, and opportunities for excuses—explanations that require constant attention and effort. It is essential, day by day, to remain responsible for our actions and decisions, accepting our faults without assigning blame.
So, my friend, as I put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard, I'm ready to discover a wealth of thoughts and emotions—sentiments I have yet to explore. Grateful for the opportunity to learn, share, and grow.
Best to you!
Who I am today as a person is largely due to my failures!
