Last year when I was starting with this blog of mine, I have decided to make a series called Word of the Day series. However, I realized that making this series didn’t make me passionate. There are times when a certain word struck me and inspired me, but I don’t end up writing anything about it because I feel like it’s not something worth sharing.
A couple of days ago, I got bored with the internet, and I have decided to check some apps on my phone. I stumble upon one app of mine I used two years ago. It’s a digital diary where I store some of my ideas, feelings, and poems. When I read half of it, I realized that this is worth sharing. That’s why I think of scraping out my Word of the Day series. Instead, I’ll be sharing some parts of my digital diary. I want to show the world (or to anyone who’ll read it) that being vulnerable doesn’t mean you are weak. I want people to know that no matter who you are, where you are, and what you are doing at this very moment, we are all going through something and that we are not alone.
I’ll be calling this series, Silent Words. I hope you’ll enjoy.

“It was a good day, but I feel tired right now. I have returned to work, so I feel exhausted. However, I enjoyed painting today, and I want to paint more. I keep on thinking about how I can turn my art into a business, but I don’t know what to do, and I don’t have the courage to take the risk.
I feel sad too because my high school friend’s father was hospitalized because of stroke 😦
Life is tragic and beautiful at the same time. They always go hand in hand and cannot be separated. How to escape it is impossible.”
