Stupid writer's block.

Random Favourites


lizilicious's Profile Picture
Serena Mithane
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
What she is made of:

A child's heart. A stubborn fighter's pride and philosopher's soul. Veins filled with words. A mind flooded with madness and dreams. Lungs that live on stories and art. Eyes that see miracles in nothing, and therefore everything. Ninja skills but a lack of dexterity. A stomach that thrives on cookies.

Who she is:

Writer cursed with a bad case of chronic writer's block. A dreamer and a cynic. A walking contradiction bordering on insanity. Also someone struggling to change the world, but still has no idea how to do that. Feel free to watch the clumsy attempt, and perhaps aid her in her quest to steal all the worlds' cookies.
This is a random set of 5 thank you notes to the 5 people I've loved in my life so far, for all the lessons you've taught me. I was a different person each time I have met you, and a different person after each time I have gotten to know and love you. And for all that, I am eternally thankful. Really, I am.

(EDIT) <-- This originally just had 4 people back when i first wrote it sometime in June 2013, but I've decided to edit it, to make sure this reflects me as of now, especially since it's the journal entry right at the front of my profile. I also recently loved this recent philosophy lecture we had before wherein our professor told us if you had stayed the same, you didn't really fall in love. And you know, I think that's true.


You have taught me that there is more to the world than numbers on a piece of paper. You have shown me that questions are worth asking, even though you might not always find the answer. The important thing is the question, because it shows that I am trying to look for answer at the very least. You have shown me that I can never really stop growing and learning, and that in the end we are all idiots, every one of us, discovering things we have not previously known and always being proven wrong. It had all started from you, and I am not sure if I would just ended up following my parent's set and safe path if it weren't for you to show me there were other places I could go, and that I could reach. You have shown me the value of honesty, and how in the end I can only learn if I don't try to hide from what I have to face or what I have to say. You have taught me the value of passion, of never giving up, and always, always fighting for what I should believe in.


You have shown me altruism and how to be a hero. You have always been a hero, in your own right. You were the first to show me that there are people as amazing enough to simply want to do good for the sake of it, never for the sake of themselves. You have taught me that kindness and affection can go a long way, and that sometimes all someone ever needs is a person to remind them that they are not alone.You have taught me the value of sacrifice, and in the end I learned that love was learning to value the happiness of another person simply for the sake of it. You are so much happier than you would have been with me, and for that, I am truly happy.


You have made me believe I can do the impossible. You have taught me that there is no such thing as impossible. That many times, the world is wrong, and that it deserves to be shown that it is wrong. You have shown me that it doesn't matter if I might be crazy, that I have dreams far too big for me, and that being afraid of them isn't such a bad thing. I have learned about the darkness inside of me because I have had to face it for you, and I have learned that all I had to do was not let it consume me out of fear. You have taught me bravery. You have taught me dreaming. I have learned so much about myself from you, because we dared to get so close to each other that it hurt and it broke us and we needed to fix ourselves up afterwards, and even though it was different, I know we tried to help each other remember where the pieces fit. And I suppose at the start, and at the end, you have taught me the value of change.


You were the first to really show me that I could be my own hero. You have shown me a world where everyone, in the end, is significant. Because they are, in their own ways. It was in the intricacies and in the stories that everything has come to happen in the way that it has, and I am so thankful for the way our intersections have collided across a supposed unlikelihood. You have shown me that words are not always needed to understand someone - because you are not very good at using them to express yourself, and you do not always understand my own, but I have always felt that we knew each other regardless. You are one of the greatest mysteries in my life because of that, but you have shown me that not everything needs an answer, and that's what makes things so beautiful. You have given me back an infinite amount of wonder to look at into the world with, and everything has become brand new to me. You have taught me happiness, and you have taught me that it is my own to give to myself.


Before you, I've always been used to questioning my own happiness. There had to be some greater meaning or scheme or strings attached to why I would be feeling this way because there is always something else besides happiness. There just had to be. But it's different with you. I don't have to constantly be asking what I did to deserve this and I don't have to fully understand it or know the reasons behind my happiness - I don't have to keep questioning or trying to be sure that I love you. I just do. I've lived my life haunted by the futures I've planned but never saw fulfilled and have been weighed down by the pasts that destroyed those futures - but I think my recent philosophy classes have articulated it the best: with you, it's a timeline I don't have full control over and I can give in to that. I don't know what's going to happen, but for once I'm not afraid of it. All I know is that I can finally take these things a day at a time, moment-by-moment, because there's no time I'd rather experience except this time we have right here, right now. And I've found that I prefer that to any vague concept of a grander scheme to things, because this is what's real and what's right in front of me.
