Happy Anniversary WordPress says to Amira


20161026_140844It surprised me, because I woke up to be told by WordPress that it’s been 5 years.

I was nicely surprised to be reminded, but another kind of surprise to be told 5 years. I have been blogging since 2007 and posts on this blog dates back to 2007. So what’s WordPress on about?
It took a bit of mind work to realize, Oh yeah! I was not Amira when I started. I was Min back then. lol really!
This reminder also brought bitter-sweet memories. It reminded why Min transformed into Amira after about 4 years of life. My brain went into a bit of a rendezvous down the memory lane.
It’s been 5 long and short years since that day.
That day when I felt so vulnerable of my own writings.
So vulnerable of getting too up close and real.
Letting someone “real” read my thoughts.
Getting real with one of those amazing blogger mates.
So real that Min was no longer Min, but a real human being.
A human being with secrets, heartaches, so much angst.
So vulnerable to having had the mask taken off even a bit.
I ran, I ran as fast as I could, I ran as far as I could.
But something held me back.
The running was not from my own words.
It was from the realization that someone real,
someone a few kilometers away, can read this mind.
The next best thing I could think of ending Min was creating Amira 🙂 And I am so glad. I’m so glad I didn’t stop writing. I’m so glad I did retreat a bit. This today is a reminder to keep everyone at an arms distance. I tend to forget. I made a similar mistake a few months back.
This today, has reminded me of how that running evolved into something beautiful and thought-provoking even if it created a bit confusion too.
But yes. A nice reminder.
