To Write A Memoir

Let your experiences make you better, but never bitter.
These were the words of a dear friend many moons ago when there was neither moon nor stars illuminating my night sky. For many reasons, the words stuck with me and very often I remember these words and control my reactions to people and situations.
It is funny how life deals the cards. You are always in for a surprise, no matter how prepared you are.

Another realization that dawned on me is that we are only given burdens that our shoulders can carry. Even when I complained about how life was mistreating me, I knew deep down inside that this too shall pass and for every day, there is a night.

I’ve read Eat Pray Love and loved it. Not everybody connects to everything Ms. Gilbert has written, but boy how I related to that book.

Talking about memoirs, I do not know if I have the courage to bare my heart like that. To take one of the deepest incidents that happened to you and to lay it bare on the pages of a book? It is a scary but very thrilling proposition, but if it will mean something to someone and if it can be a twinkling star in a night sky, why not.

Linking this to Writing Wednesdays at WriteTribe where the theme is Do you think you’ll ever attempt to write a memoir?

Writing to me is therapy, it frightens and comforts at the same time. Liberates like nothing else. A book in my own name is a dream, but a bigger dream would be to write something that haunts the reader even after the last page is turned and the book is shut. I enjoy reading and music, spending time with family whilst battling my social awkwardness.
