Prepare for my life story folks...
Ever since I was little I’ve always loved reading and writing. I’d read anything from a magazine, to an online blog, to a book that was bigger than me at the age of 15. I never really knew that I had a passion for writing up until the end of my junior year of high school. I just thought writing was just something I was good at. Not something I thought I could adore, and make a job out of. By the time my senior year came I took a college course in English. I loved it, and in the back of my mind, I wished I took advanced courses every year in high school. Quite honestly, as I grew up, I never really understood that words were my outlet. At the time I was neck deep into my photography; I focused more on that for a few years. However, in my senior year I interned a blogger. She wanted me to take pictures for her fashion advice and life endeavors. Heck, I wasn’t passing up that opportunity. During my internship she really inspired me to start a blog, and with that I started writing again. I fell back in love.
Lately I’ve become more of a deep writer, and I’ve become interested in novels by R.h Sin and Samantha Holmes. They are an amazing duo. I also love reading the inspiration from Daniell Kopeke. She’s a wonderful writer. Look them up sometime, you won’t regret it.
Sometimes when life gets a little too crazy or too chaotic, I do one of two things. I either sit down and read a good book and escape for a while, or I lay down and begin a story of my own. It’s not always a made-up story. But sometimes I just lay in bed and write what I’m thinking, write the things I wish I could say out loud, or I write something that I feel like someone else needs to hear. Sometimes I’ll write about my opinions, life, or something that really impacted me wether it’s good or bad. I go on Pinterest and search for those inspirational sayings/posts that “inspire me.” See what I did there?
I’ll never forget the day I realized I loved to write. I’ll never forget that I’m able to share my thoughts, opinions and ideas with the world freely. Writing is my outlet; it’s my get-away. Give me a paper and a pen, and I’ll be at it for hours. Writing allows my mind to travel elsewhere and escape from it's current state. It allows me to bring my words to life and most importantly, give them character. I hope to teach others in the future and give them the freedom to express their thoughts and opinions on any given subject. With that, many of us are given the chance to better understand each other, no matter our differences.
Share your story friends, inspire someone. 💜
