Long time no post, right? I know. I had some serious figuring-out-what-I-want to-do-with-the-rest-of-my-life stuff going on. I know I want to travel, but I have to do something to sustain my life. I had plans, but they don’t seem to be working so well for me. So I decided to take some time off and try and give the matter some serious thought. My initial plan was joining some business school, so that I am more employable. But it seems to me that that no longer is my calling, and furthermore, I don’t want to take on a heap of student loans to pay off. So, did I figure out? No, not really. But I have decided to work on my writing and see if I can earn some bucks that way.
Enough about me. I hope you all have been doing well. Ah, I am about 3 months late with this post; I had written it before I went MIA, so I am just publishing that.

She talks about how she dealt with this crisis, how she started healing and eventually went on the journey of accepting and started moving from Self-Loathing to Self-Loving!
And while I was sitting in my chair and admiring her bravery, she goes ahead to disclose her real identity – Ella Mathews. I am in awe of this Lady. She’s an inspiration!
