The story that deserved more than 140 characters

I was originally going to make this a tweet, but I thought this story deserved more than 140 characters.

Few months ago, I had the idea of creating a blog where I would write and share my stories with the world. I wasn’t sure if I would be good enough, or if people would read me at all. For once I didn’t let my insecurities stop me and did it anyway. Not for the others but for myself. Writing is like therapy to me so I thought, even if nobody reads me, it’s still worth it.

That is how, some day early September, Narrow & Deep was born. Continue reading

Two Years

For you, my friend

Today it makes two years since I last saw you. That’s 24 months, 104 weeks, 730 days. I was surprised to hear it had been that long. I was so busy that I didn’t see the time go by. A lot can happen in two years, you know? For example, I started and then graduated college, got my first job, played my first concert, turned 18 while one of my dreams came true, made new friends, lost others, met my two biggest role models, started this blog, and the list could go on.

However, there is one thing that didn’t happen. I didn’t forget about you, about us, and all that we went through.

Actually, I think about you every now and then. I know things aren’t always easy for you. But I also know you better than anybody else and no matter what you think, I love you. You’re important, your story is important, so here’s something I want you to hear.  Continue reading

Feelings just asking to be felt

Some days you wake up and the sun is shining, some days you wake up and the sky is cloudy.

Just like some days, without really knowing why, you wake up feeling low. You need all your energy to drag yourself out of bed, you don’t feel like talking to anybody and the day seems to go by reaaally slowly.

We all get those days once in a while, and that’s okay.

I believe that we shouldn’t try to control or suppress our thoughts and feelings. Instead, we should try to let go and just feel for a moment. Sometimes feelings are just asking to be felt so that we can move on to better things.

We shouldn’t feel guilty for not being happy all the time. We are just humans. Feelings are part of us but they do not define us. Plus, if we didn’t know bad days, how would we know and appreciate good days? It’s all about balance.

So whatever happens today, don’t worry and remember: after rain comes rainbow.
