Life-A Short Story#1

This was never in my mind to write about the journey of my life. Many friends and my own family members asked me to write about my journey as according to them, it was worth writing about because of the ups and downs I faced in my life. After much struggle and effort, I have reached a place in my life that I had never thought of.

Is my life worth writing about, will people read my memoirs? Many people have said I should write a book as all my life stories are interesting and emotional. What’s so special which I should write. Are my achievements worth writing my story, and letting people know about my journey in this life? What will happen to my thoughts if I will not express them? Nobody will know about the details of my life.

After much argument within myself, I decided to write about it.  Maybe I can inspire someone who is struggling the falls and failures in life just like me. When reading about someone else’s ups and downs in life, we try to solve our problems by following in their footsteps. So if my story can help anyone in some way, I will really be happy and my effort will be worthwhile.

One more reason for writing it all is, I don’t want to keep things bottled up now. In my journey, there were many incidents where I was broken or either bounced back stronger. Now I really want to unplug all those circumstances and feel lighter.

The thought of not writing it is left behind now. I think that I am good enough to share it with people and especially women. If I can get up and keep going after many failures and flaws, why can’t they?

I don’t know who will like to read about my journey but I will write and share it with my family, friends, and the whole world. Maybe it will be a legacy for my next generations.

A common woman’s life journey. My life journey.

To be continued next Friday…

  1. I look forward to reading it. I just started my own memoir. I am a voracious reader of that genre. Imagine the amount of people you may be able to help with your experiences? I put this up on my writing desk for inspiration: “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” -Maya Angelou

    1. I appreciate your views on this Maya. I gave it a serious thought before deciding to write it. But now there is no looking back. I want to share my life with my near and dear ones. My memoir will be very familiar to many, who grew up with me. But it will be different for many who will read it.😊😊 You can share your memoir with me or here on WordPress also. My email id is
