"The writing is — I'm free from pain. It's where nobody tells me what to  do; it's where my imagination is fecund and I am really at my best.  Nothing matters more in the world or in my body or anywhere when I'm  writing.

This is a  quote by Toni Morrison during an interview with NPR's Fresh Air in 2015.

This encapsulates all the reasons why I myself coming on here to write regardless of how inconsistent it is. I think about this website a lot. It is something like a therapy room.

I want to learn to own my story entirely, bearing in mind that experiences shapes us. My story, My life, My presence, My wins, My losses, My mistakes, My space and all these I deserve to own wholly.

I like that I do my best to put words to what i feel however inaccurate they may be sometimes. My life is not made of perfections. My life is made of learning. I haven't always been a static idea of a human. I am more like a dynamic, ever- changing and ever-growing idea of a human.

Sometimes it is hard to accept where I am at on my journey. The feeling that I can be more can be overwhelming especially when the progress is slow.

I am learning to be as I am and just be mindful to learn everyday.
