How do you express yourself? Someone asked me during my waitressing shift at 2 am. Back in a day when my routine consisted of attending lectures, laboratories and working part time to afford a merely comfortable life in Greece.
The question took me by surprise and I had actually no response. Later in the evening after taking a hot shower to get rid of the cigarette’s smell, lying in my student bed, that question was burning my mind.
Ugly thoughts such as living life just for the sake of it were dominating my brain. Those thoughts were tidily put to sleep the next morning with the excuse that survival comes first.
A few years later and luckily life has gotten a bit more comfortable. I still struggle to express myself in terms of creating something. While there are many things and mostly friends and family that I can be myself with, I constantly feel the need to develop. In a corner of my mind, I still believe that I haven’t bloomed yet.
There is an amazing scientist, pianist, fashion designer, writer, Michelin-starred chef in me waiting to be awakened.
How do you guys express yourself?
I would love to read your comments.
