The Brighter Things

Every other day this month, I'm going to share three good things and the reasons why.


3. 05/05/2016

1. I'm grateful for Movellas, because I've finally found a supportive community where everyone has the opportunity to express themselves however they want. From where I'm sat now, I can see two Movellys in their place of glory on my bookshelf and they never fail to bring a smile to my face. I'm now more confident when it comes to sharing my writing and I've found a couple of good friends along the way. I'm grateful for the kindness of people that I've never met before.


2. I'm grateful for music and books. Music, for lifting my spirits, filling my life with something to love, and even occasionally breaking my heart. Books, for adding wisdom and adventures to what would otherwise be quite a bland life. They are two things that I'm grateful for because they truly make me feel more alive.


3. I'm grateful for the quote that Matty Healy (lead singer of The 1975) allegedly said because it perfectly explains how I've been feeling recently and I've had no idea how to put it into words.


I think about dying but I don't want to die. Not even close. In fact my problem is the complete opposite. I want to live, I want to escape. I feel trapped and bored and claustrophobic. There's so much to see and so much to do but I somehow still find myself doing nothing at all. I'm still here in this metaphorical bubble of existence and I can't quite figure out what the hell I'm going or how to get out of it.
