When I started this blog, my type of writing was expressive writing. At that time, I was dealing with a deep sense of disconnection. I was disconnected from myself and what made me feel alive. That disconnection prevented me from bonding with others on a deeper level. There were times it was like I couldn’t feel anything at all or see the meaning. When I started writing about what was happening, I experienced relief. Situations and emotions became clearer. I could have a better grasp of what was going on.
I believe writing can be a way to connect with life’s beauty. At least, when I write, I dive deep into our collective heart. That’s where we all exist equally, regardless of skin tone, size, shape, age, or belief system. That’s where good and bad are one too. When I slide into that space through writing, I do not only exist. I am one with myself and with the world. I just am, and I find beauty in the tiniest of details throughout that journey. Even in what we grow up to believe to be bad, ugly, or shameful.
