I think the most important question that needs to be asked nowadays is:
How are you?
It would be an understatement to say that the Covid-19 Pandemic has taken a toll on everyone’s wellbeing.
Now that social distancing is heavily encouraged (and so you should!), it is easy to feel extremely isolated when enduring these difficult times. With so much in the news everyday, it may feel like you are the only one having to juggle health, money, and job-related or school-related issues all at once.
I think we can all agree that everyone here flocked to WordPress in search of a place to express themselves freely and an outlet for their emotions.
Whether that be through writing a news or lifestyle article, or by sharing pieces of artwork, we all came here to share what we love and what we are passionate about.
It is this enthusiastic and supportive community of writers, artists, and beautiful people alike that has reminded me to get in touch with what I love the most myself – performing and poetry.
This was when I decided to combine these two passions together to make my first ever recording of a poem of mine – in spoken-word form!
I dearly thank everyone on this platform who has inspired me (indirectly) with their beautiful posts and online presence to keep in touch with my writing. You guys have truly kept me energetic and alive whilst spending my days on end in my bedroom!
Special mention to CBWrites (historiesofawriter.com), for being such a huge support to me ever since I started this blog.
Let’s continue to share art – although you may deem it insignificant, someone might just glimpse upon your name, flicker their eyes, and click on your post – you never know what kind of impact your words can have on someone else.
Finally, in the words of one of my favourite artists:
If we helped your dream and your life a bit with our existence, our music, our performances, our pictures or videos, even if it’s not big, if we could reduce your pain from 100 to 99, 98 or 97 that makes our existence worthy.RM, BTS
What are the things that you all love doing?
How have you been coping under these times?
