The Untold Story…
#100DaysOfBlogging Day 4
I had recently done a quotes challenge on Facebook, where I had shared quotes I love for a week. I find some quotes to be inspiring when the mood is low, or just relatable to what I feel. Maybe that’s why they say “Been there, done that.” Recently, Tina Basu had tagged me to do a 3 day quote challenge on my blog.
The rules are simple.
- Post for three consecutive days
- Post one to three quotes each day
- Tag three blogger buddies each day to attempt the challenge.
I’m bending the first and last rules slightly. I’m going to post on alternate days, not consecutive. And I’m leaving the tag open for any blogger buddy to take it up.
Maya Angelou’s I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings has been on my to-be-read list for a while now. The reason: this quote.
I relate to this quote in different ways. There are times when my mood is quite low, but I cannot tell the reason or express what happened to anyone, not even the closest of friends. Because I cannot express it, I suffer in silence. That sadness is agonizing. Some of my friends have this ability to sense something is not right, and somehow get the reason out though. Another way I can relate to it is purely from a storyteller’s point of view. To have an idea but be unable to put it into words, make the story take shape… that’s irritating. Writer’s block is something I do not like. When that story finally sees the light, the relief and happiness is palpable.
What about you, my dear reader? Can you relate to this quote?
