I’m Kori. I’m not sure what I am doing but here we go. I have been into writing and documenting my life for a while. I have always felt more comfortable writing about my life as a way to express and let go of my feelings. It is a way for me to get clarity about the events happening in my life and share the experiences I have. It also provides a place for me to be able to look back at what I was feeling at different times in my life. I have kept a journal for years now where I express myself and my inner feelings that most people don’t know about. But now I feel its time that I can show the world some of those thoughts. I have always felt that if I can help one person, if one person finds meaning in anything I say, everything I have done is worth while. Now I don’t know what is going to become of this or what exactly I am going to write or even if anyone is going to read it, but I’m going to write for me. This will be a place where I can be open, share the good and the bad, and look back at my life saying yeah I did that. I may share pieces of advice along the way which someone might find helpful. We will see. But like I said, I can’t be certain just like life. I’m still young and I don’t know where my life is heading. As much as we would like life to be predictable, it isn’t. So stay tuned as I write my life away.
Oh something you might need to know about me. I suffer from severe anxiety and depression. I have been living with mental health problems for a large part of my life and it is a big part of who I am. While I don’t let it define me, it is part of who I am. It will always have a major affect on everything in my life so my journey over the next few years is to learn how to live happily with it and not to let it stop me. Living an open and honest life is what I am striving for. We are just a tiny blip of time on the scale of life so I intend on living and doing as much as I can. Aristotle claims that happiness is the ultimate goal in life. Happiness can only be truly achieved in the face of virtue, being courageous in the face of fear and learning what life consists of. While I may not get to profound happiness, I’m not going to let my anxiety stop me from experiencing life. Life is too short to fear everything. I know some days are worse than others but I have to keep pushing forward. Again, stay tuned to see how that goes.
So I’m not sure where to go from here but isn’t that the beauty of life. I will continue to journal privately about you know real deep secrets and feelings and such, but I’m ready to start sharing my journey to understand life and how I can be happy. So here we go.
