Lupita Nyong’O said in her acceptance speech at the 86th Academy Awards, “No matter where you are from, your dreams are valid.”
Among the hundred or more dreams that I have, I want to find The Dream that is worth chasing right Now.
I want to set my priorities right.
I want to be able to have my own unbiased opinion in every field, every topic of argument, and every aspect of life.
I want to gather that much of knowledge and wisdom and experience, so that I can be confident of what I speak, and be an individual who knows her mind, who knows her decisions and is unapologetic about it.
Somewhere down the line, I’ve realized that I’m not blogging for myself anymore- I’m blogging for fame and success. So this is the right time to stop, stand and stare; do a bit of pondering.
That’s why I want to take a break from blogging. A short one. It’s my second home, my mind’s palace, so rest assured- I’ll come back to it. And when I return, I’ll blog because it makes me happy, not because I want success.
I’ll return when I can write true and honest, once again; and can view that as a success in itself.
I’ll return when those feelings, emotions and ideas that once bubbled inside me are back and when no other method of expressing or voicing it out, works.
Till then, Au Revoir…
