Yesterday was a hard day. My client needed a document I have to dig through old files. While doing my search I came across some receipts from investments I lost because of negligence. I felt so sad and guilty thinking that I could have made it better if I do things differently.  I cannot help but cry and feel sorry for myself for all the losses until the memories go back to losing my son. I regretted not being more loving and more forgiving when he was still around and so on until my heart was heavy and my eyes weary.

Why I Write (1 min read)

I write when I break down, I write when no one else seems to listen. So I write, I put all the emotions, the heartbreak, the panic everything into words. I write because I find it hard to say it all out loud, so I write it down, I write to find a way to connect with strangers who feel the same way. I write when I fall down and write when get back up. I write when I have nothing, except I will never lose everything, people may walk out of my life and new ones may decide to come in, but I will never lose the words, the words that are mine, the words that come from my heart and the words that I decide to share with the world. I may not know who I am or what my propose in life is, but I know that if what I write affects the way a single person out there feels if my words can help them then I will write. I will write it all down every single thing I feel, everything that made me the person I am today. I will write about the good, the bad, the ugly and the embarrassing. And I may cry while I write but if that one person smiles because of what I have written then I will cry, cry for those out there who are like me. I hope that every word that you read reaches to your heart and I hope that you know, you matter and there is no one like you out there. So if you feel anything, anything at all I recommend you don’t bottle it up. Write it all down everything and do it with courage, stand tall and help change the lives of those who are like you, along with your own. With Love, -H

I remember I used to write short rhyme poems when I was young, probably 4th standard, but then I didn’t really know writing is something that I love to do, I used to write because I was enjoying it. Nobody was really supporting me as they didn’t know the importance of writing, neither I don’t know what happened later, I just stopped writing. I never wrote for years. After this long gap, finally, from a couple of months writing started embracing me. Now I realized something which I failed to realize when I was in 4th std. Yes, writing is my passion and this is something that I love to do always. Continue reading Why Did I Start Writing? (1 min read)

Disclaimer: Before I begin, if you didn’t know, last year I released my very first short film to the world (or the internet).  I had never been so nervous in my life, but I was proud of my incredibly amateurish piece of work.  In the end, it was really a learning experience of how not to make a short film, but all of that will be covered in the following blog entries.  If you haven’t seen it, please watch it before reading any of the material.

The Fear of Heights (1 min read)

Hi guys, today I’m gonna talk about something I have feared ever since I was a little kid and still fear to this day, and its heights.

I don’t know why but heights just happen to suck the life out me. Every time I’m somewhere high I start to freak out and panic like a total idiot. But it’s not just about being in a high place that freaks the shit out of me, no every fucking time I see a large and incredibly tall building my heart starts to race at a thousand miles per hour and my hands start to shake and I feel like a complete loser (which I am).  And sometimes it can be really embarrassing, for example, once I was with some friends and we decided to get my friends, little sister, a toy, but the problem (for me, everyone else was fine) was that the toy shop was on the top floor, and there was no fucking elevator. I mean what type of a sick person places a fucking toy shop on like the 100th floor, I mean think of the kid)s who can’t climb up the fucking largest staircase ever.

Another example is when I went to London with my family we went to the London Eye and it was great for me until I found out we had to actually go inside a large round box thingy made completely out of glass and it just happened to rotate around a fucking wheel, and don’t get me wrong that thing was so high I swear I could see the Eiffel Tower from up there. Now I couldn’t back put off going in it as we had already bought the tickets so I prayed to God to help me survive and stepped in the box thingy, now I saw everyone around me walking in the glass box and taking pictures of the view while I sat there with my sweaty hands and racing heart beat next to an old Chinese lady who after five minutes also got up and walked around, and everyone was just staring at me like I was paralyzed or something (although I did act like it so…)

Alright guys I think this enough for now, I hope you enjoyed these embarrassing stories, and I hope they made you feel less like an idiot, cause let’s be honest no one’s as stupid and clumsy as me (yeah I’ll just go and cry in a corner alone now) bye guys and hope you enjoyed. -H

Identity Crisis (2 min read)

I was 28 when I realized I was having an identity crisis, with four kids around. I thought it was too late. Although during teenage life I had periods of wondering who I am uncertain if I answered that question. I realized the crisis of knowing who we are is not confined only to a particular stage but on various points throughout life.

Keeping-a-Journal-More-Precious-than-Gold-675x3001

We hardly talk about things at home growing up in my childhood.  I don’t remember any conversation except for some daily chores that needs to be done every now and then.  I was probably looking for a way to express myself when I bump into an old empty notebook and a pen. I write about the infatuation I had on a male classmate at the age of 9. Those were the thing I cannot tell my mom since I came from a traditional, old fashioned family and besides I was very young then to talk about those things. I write them anyway hoping my mom would never knew. I keep it away from her and realize later that there’s no place at home where mom would never see.

Even though muscular dystrophy attempts to lay claim to my life, I have found a few ways to come out from the shadow of my disease.  One of my pleasures (and therapies) is painting.  This creative form affords me the freedom to live beyond the limits of my physical world and to express feelings that expand beyond the limits that words impose.  The more I paint, the more I feel compelled to paint.  It is addictive and healthy.   As I work to bring an oil painting to completion, I am restoring little pieces of me.
