I am a product of my mother

I am strong

I am resilient

I make mistakes

I am human

I love fiercely

I love to dance

I am disconnected from my own

Just like her

I am a product of my father

I love to eat

I loved to purge

I love to run

I love to drum

I see the darkness

I feel overwhelmed

I am disconnected from my parents

Just like him

Now I’m a product of myself

I am strong

I am resilient

I make mistakes

I am human

I love fiercely

I love to dance

I love to eat

I refuse to purge

I love to run

I miss the drums

I run from the darkness

When I feel overwhelmed

I stand alone but tall without my parents

My body remains on the sidelines watching, while my mind roams around the room, taking in the world around her. I am a wallflower. There could be two reasons for this: It could be due to me being an introvert or just that I am a Cancerian! I’m Cece Alexandra and I am so honoured that you’ve been led to delve into my thoughts here in this blog! I would describe myself as a Wallflower which is why I use words to express my deepest – and sometimes darkest - thoughts. Words have always been my strongest method of expressing myself. Growing up I always wanted to be a writer, however life and circumstances chipped away at my confidence until there was nothing left. Without words, I could no longer express myself. I am also Epileptic. Since being diagnosed, I have realised that my deepest fear is the day I am finally on my deathbed, haunted by the overwhelming regret that I never achieved my God-given potential. This realisation forced me to take a step of faith and put myself out there. Yes it makes me vulnerable, however within the process I not only want to be an inspiration to myself; I want to be an inspiration to other women – to be whatever you want to be. Embrace the fear and doubt and utilise that as the fuel you need to push through! Life is for living to the fullest. Life is for loving, for living true to yourself and to the people around you. Life however, can also be crippling, dark and overwhelming. But you are not alone. This thought alone is what will help you get up from the ground.
