To you…

Today is Valentine’s Day and my cousin’s birthday, not the pain in the a– cousin. I probably should send him a birthday card, after all, it’s not everyday one gets to turn 19.

Meanwhile, I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, I don’t really see the point, sorry. Today is just another busy Saturday on my calendar. My mom wants me to finish all the translation work today. You can tell I’m procrastinating. 😀

Oh, just because I don’t celebrate this holiday doesn’t mean I don’t have my favorite Valentine Day of all time. Click here to read, although, I think a lot of you’d probably already read it.

Today’s prompt calls to write an ode to someone or something I love. I am terrible at poetry. So I’m not going to attempt to write a poem. Who or what am I going to write it to? Hmm…

To my blog…

Before you, I was miserable. I was full of anger and sadness with no one to turn to. Somedays, I was so angry and depressed that I didn’t even want to go to class. After reading something I wrote, one of my instructors even recommended me to go see a counselor but even then it did not help. I couldn’t let my anger and sadness go in that tiny close-circuit camera recording room. It was too risky and I was afraid if anybody saw this, they’ll have me committed. I couldn’t tell anyone about that either so I had to keep it to myself. 

I didn’t know what to do. I wasn’t and am not an irrational person. I don’t break stuff or throw things across the room like my crazy step-father. I am compose even though I might feel different on the inside. 

I had no choice but to search for an alternative. Then there you were. For a long time, I was reluctant but then I just let everything go, let my thoughts go free. You know what? I suddenly felt so much better with all the encouraging comments from all the readers and followers. I’ve never expected you’d flourish. You have brought joy to my life and I love you for that and therefore, I dedicate this letter to you.

  1. I love this post! Blogging really is a type of therapy. I don’t know why, but something about sitting down and writing out some of the things bouncing around in my head always makes me feel a little lighter and a lot better.

    I’m glad that your blog has helped you get rid of some of those negativity traits that all of us experience. I hope it continues to help you, I will be following your thoughtful and relatable posts!
