I haven’t posted in a while. I haven’t been doing much – but one thing worth mentioning is that I’ve been connecting with other people battling similar feelings and organisations advocating the same uplifting, hope-filling, positive messages that I’m trying to send.
I came across the organisation, To Write Love On Her Arms, through a Ted Talk by Jamie Tworkowski, its founder. That’s how I discovered the online movement of Fears Vs Dreams.
It’s amazing how, with the help of a pen, a person’s courage and honesty can transform a mostly blank piece of paper into a power statement. I felt comforted to know I’m not the only one who fears being a failure, giving up, or being alone etc. I felt uplifted to know I’m not the only one who’s dreaming a dream that sometimes seems far beyond their reach.
Scrolling through the submissions, I realised that while everyone person has their own individual story, their demons, and their journey ahead of them; we’re never alone through any of it.
As the Boy Under the Bridge, I’m living a story. I will not give up.
