Why are we so scared to chase our dream when it is in us to make it.
We got to work hard for it, be consistently striving for it, but we got it if only we take the steps.
I love how James Baldwin said, “Your crown has been bought and paid for. All you have to do is put it on your head.”
We don’t even have to always be scared because as eloquently written by Maya Angelou, “I go forth alone, and stand as ten thousand.” Our ancestor carefully paved our way, so step on it and live it.
I am a writer, I will blog, and I will publish best-selling books; probably not as Yor Ryeter, but using my given name. And then I would continue to write anonymously in this blog until my very last breath.

When my sister and I moved to our new apartment, I threw all our cooking wares, the fry pan, the witchy big pot, the wok, everything! I was thinking of investing to the the very expensive revolutionised healthy cooking ware, the piece that I was eyeing was AED 4,000 and then I thought that’s way too pricey considering we already spent too much.
We opt for a Staub Iron Cast in bright red so we can cook and bake with it and it was on sale for less than AED 1,000; as days passed by, besides the fact that it is too heavy, I couldn’t really cook all the dishes using it. We bought another boiler and then a skillet, and then it made me realise that like cooking ware, all people are different because every individual existed for a specific purpose. Oprah kept saying we have to find that calling all our life and live it all we don’t truly live.
So enjoy your difference from the person around you, you can do something so amazing that they are thankful to have you. I am thankful for the person who invented restaurants and everyone who work in it because they give me such pleasure and supreme delight. I am thankful to all the writers who inspire me and feed my soul. And I am thankful that I am chasing my dream, step by step, and I am not giving up!

All Charles Dickens did was arrange them into a new pattern, isn’t that right?
But Dickens did create something new, didn’t he?
By using words.
The only tools that were available to him.
Just as almost all inventors in history have had to use the tools that were available to them.
I love this part from the movie. I guess if there’s a burning soul of a writer in you, you would appreciate the logic. Words are available, and with the creativity of a writer, he could create a masterpiece. Yet, if the feeling and emotions is so deep, words would no longer suffice to describe the feeling, especially the ‘magical ones’.
