Why I stopped blogging…

imageI started my blog in my final year at university. This was a year where I had so much time on my hands. My mind was clear, I could think and I could hear my inner voice so loudly. This new stage of my life, although necessary is indicative of how toxic our lives can get if we don’t fight for that inner peace.

I was at a stage in life where I empathised for women of colour and the battles we endured in life. Now I actually have the opportunity to test all of my theories and apply all of my findings.  Although I don’t write as much as I used to about feminism and women empowerment, I have become an active advocate in my new environment and a proud one at that.

It’s so ironic that most of what i wrote about has actually become a reality. Posts where I had made hypothetical situations and in the same breathe decisions on those situations, I am now faced with in reality and those very decisions I was sure to make hypothetically, are not so easy to make any more 😅 but hey, you live and you learn.

Although I don’t write as much as I used to, I have not stopped being a feminist or an advocate of women empowerment, how can I? It is my reality at the end of the day.  Writing will always be my first love also when it comes to the arts. When I’m not writing (which I seldom do these days) I’m reading…exploring other artists thoughts and imaginations.

So yes,in closing , I want to let you know that I’m still around, doing more living than thinking now haha. Although sometimes the creative juices run dry and I find myself nothing more that uninspired, I could never stop blogging.I will find the balance and I apologise now and in advance for my erratic hiatus.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
