I recently started watching “The Carrie Diaries”, an American teen drama television series, and I must say I am really enjoying it so far. It is about a teenage girl, a lot like myself, struggling to move on from her grief of her mother’s death, taking on life’s challenges and experiences the city of Manhattan brings as she is on her journey of becoming a writer as well as a fashionista.
The show starts off with this quote, “They say the key to being a writer is figuring out who you are… finding your own voice”
Chills ran down my spine when I first heard this quote. I knew right then in my heart that the key to finding out who I am is right in front of me. Putting my thoughts in paper, mapping it all out, exemplifies my true nature and defies who I am as an aspiring writer, entrepreneur, and a risk-taking thrill seeker. My future is yet to be told, my voice is yet to be found. Behold….
“To tell the truth, or create a life for myself I’ve always wanted to live”
Sometimes the truth can wait… but right now it is time to explore life’s riches and future endeavors. Much like the quote by Bob Marley “Love the life you live, live the life you love”. I have a tendency to drift into my fantasy la la world from time to time, it is what keeps me happy. Life to me is a big adventure and I like to embrace it with open arms.
Here is another quote from the TV series, this is when Carrie encounters her first heartbreak….
“Love is something we wait for, we imagine our first sex, our first kiss, our first I love you, but we never imagine our first heartbreak. Maybe because its too painful to even imagine but in a way the pain of love truly changes us its the losing of love that makes us who we are. Life gets more complicated but also filled with promise and the possibility of opening hearts to new beginnings, new dreams and new places. Things are no longer a fantasy. I’m searching for me: who I was and who I wanted to be.”
This quote is pretty self explanatory and something all of us have witnessed or are witnessing as we go about on our journey.
