Feautured image is fromThought catalog
Thought catalog is a great platform for, well thoughts but more than that it’s got some excellent articles by some great writers on a variety of topics.
I agree with the quote stated in the feautured image. We do all have a story in us because we have all lived and “living” is different for everyone. I think everyone leads an interesting life, everyone has highs and lows. The way we overcome to lows and embrace the highs, that’s what defines some part of us. I believe everyone has layers and it’s a true privilege if someone unfolds their layers to let someone in and show their vulnerabilities. Humans…we really are such complex creatures.
I read something the other day which I thought was hilarious, which I would like to share with you:
I mean no offence to those that are struggling with depression but I could relate to this and thought the humour was really funny. Proves what I was saying, we are really complex.
Going back to the quote in the feautured photo, I am often told that I write as I talk. One of my friends said to me when I told her about my blog “Even if you didn’t tell me it was yours , I’d know it’s you. I can hear your voice in every word I read”. Haha she’s great. 🙂
It makes me curious and question though, if you don’t write the way you talk then how can you write? Surely, the way you write has something to do with the way you think which in turn correlates with the way you talk. So, by that logic if you’re wrighting varies from the way you talk then does the way you think not relate to the way you think? Wow, ok I’ve just given myself a headache. It surprises me because people are surprised when they read what I write and I’m not sure why. I think I need to meet an actual writer and then read their writing to understand this “merry go round” concept.
Right, so when I’m bored and not watching tv and not whatsapping (as we do) these are the websites I like to visit:
- Thought catalog
- Tiny buddha (helps you to be zen about everyday matters)
- Huffingtonpost (for pretty much everything)
- National geographic travel (to figure out travel itineraries for a destination I am going to)
- Condenast travel
- The Economist (just to keep up to date with the industries my line of work is involved in).
I think that covers it. I feel there aren’t enough hours in the day to read. Oh well, I’ve been waiting in a queue as I was writing this post and I’m next (yay).
Happy reading everyone and have a lovely day. :).
