Notes: My Reality

When I write, I do not need to present a picture perfect of life. My writing is often close to telling the truth.  I am  just trying to speaking the truth about things that effect me, about things that happen in our society. My writing is written with my perspective as watcher as well as  doer.

You know…. I also often consider that my writing is often very spiritual because it is all about emotion, it is all about life. It is because I just try to  reveal myself, tell my personal own problem and even lay all my deepest darkest secret because they are part of reality. It is my own reality, which sometimes can better or even worse than yours.

Yes, I choose to present the reality of life. I know that sometimes reality is bitter and painful but that is a real life. As a result, I do not expect no controversy because a controversy is the beginning of public discussion.

Spirituality: Prayer Against Depression

O Jesus Christ, when all is darkness and we feel our weakness and helplessness, give us the sense of Your presence, Your love and Your strength. 

Help us to have a perfect trust in Your protecting love and strengthening power so that nothing may frighten or worry us. For living close to you, we shall see Your hand, Your purpose and Your will through all things. Amen.  ** By Saint Ignatius of Loyola

Notes: Real Person

A lot of young people are trying to make sure that everybody thinks that you have more than what you actually have. What’s the point if you actually don’t have it? If you dont have it then have what you have, enjoy that . Don’t be afraid of not being the wealthiest person in the room. Be the smartest person in the room, the most sleekest person in the room, the most creative person in the room.” Jill Scott

Notes: Your Story Will Be In My Writing

I am a writer, I like to watch people in the interaction. Listen in the conversation. All of that there is something to write about, it’s somebody is going to say something that end up in the song.” Jill Scott
