I know what you're thinking. You are thinking "What does “Truths Diary” even mean?” Well, I can explain that to you simply...
I have often thought about making a blog, similar to a diary, that would be filled with all of my best stories, poems, articles, and analytical thoughts. I wanted it to showcase real and honest statements that are raw and interesting. I never thought that I could make this a reality because I didn't think that anyone would care to read them. It was always just a passionate thought that I feared. But I have come to realize that maybe writing down my feelings, thoughts, and experiences will help me come to terms with them. Maybe it will help me clear my head by writing down all my questionable thoughts. And maybe, just maybe, I am not alone in these experiences. Maybe there are other people out there who seek more information as I do. And Maybe they need someone to be open and honest about things and get straight to the point without being weak and scary. I’ll put it to you this way: It's like the popular saying, "I don't sugar coat, I’m not Willy Wonka." That statement should help you prepare yourself for what you are about to read in my blog.
I am starting this blog because, like so many others, I have so much on my mind that keeps me awake at night. I can't help it, I'm a thinker, and I feel like I always have to know why things happen, and why they happen to me. Why she or he did this and that. Why he never apologized. Why I lost, why I won, or why I gave up. These are just some of the questions that run through my head on a daily basis. So instead of keeping these thoughts to myself, I am going to try something new and just open up to people about them. I am doing this to see if I can unlock some answers to so many questions that I have about life in general. I hope that whatever I write in this blog will be looked at as real, thought provoking, and inspirational.
If people read what I have to say and feel negativity towards it, so be it. If people read what I have to say and feel positive about it, so be it. If my writing keeps people at the edge of their seat in wonderment, I will be glad in it. But most of all, I want this blog to be a place where I can just "keep it real" and talk about things that others are afraid to, or just don't understand. After all, we as humans can never truly understand everything in our lifetime; life is just not meant to be understood fully. We can only talk about our experiences, share our true feelings, and bounce ideas off of each other on why things happen and how we can deal with them. I know I am not just speaking for myself when I say that I have learned that life is full of the unexpected, and anything can happen to anyone at any given time.
My goal for this blog is to keep it open to talk about everything and anything. I will even make 3 promises to my viewers. First, I promise to always keep it real while respecting others. Second, I promise to entertain and listen to all feedback; positive or negative. Third, I promise to not purposely offend anyone from the things I say in my writing. What I say in my writing is meant to open people’s eyes, open their hearts, and open their minds to seek more information about life, love, happiness, etc. I only wish to express my feelings and ask the many questions that I am sure other people ask in their everyday life.
So, I open my blog to you and I hope you see it as a reflection of independence, creativity, and wisdom. Who knows, maybe my stories and comments will find a larger audience and I can finally write the novel I have always dreamed of writing. A novel filled with all my crazy life experiences, and how I overcame harsh blows that I felt would lead me to my doom but really made me a better person in the end. It's kind of funny, but they say God only gives the hardest battles to his strongest soldiers. If this is true, I must be a Gladiator for going through so much at such a young age and I'm still here. And as I grow older and wiser, I have learned that life only gets harder, and change is inevitable. You can either roll with the punches, or you can let the punches knock you out. In other words, Life was never meant to be easy, but I do believe it was meant to be livable. It shouldn’t be that we as humans are here on this earth to only just survive. We must have been put here to live, learn, prosper, achieve, and pursue happiness and balance in our lives. If this is true, which I do believe it to be, I feel that we should always ask questions, search for answers, and trust our gut instinct. We should try to stay open-minded about life itself, and try to see things in a positive way, more so in the negative. Otherwise, how will we evolve as a species?
In conclusion, I announce that I have dedicated this blog to the thinkers, dreamers, and inquisitive fanatics that want their voice to be heard. I salute you all, and I hope this blog is read as a reminder that you are not alone.
