My blog Ruthie Mbuba is mostly a platform for me to share my life experiences and what I’ve learnt so far. And the other time, I share my journey of working from home as a freelance writer.
Maybe my blog will share a few skeletons in my closet but I’ll mostly talk of the demons I’ve fought. Particularly the demon of depression. At some point in life, I battled depression which was caused by my life not turning out the way I’d mapped it out in my head. I got lost in the disappointment and it was such a tussle trying to get out of it. I turned to the internet for advice and that’s where I discovered various blogs. Years later, having slayed my demons, I thought “Why not do so for someone else?” My hope is what I share helps readers slay if just but one monster in your life.
I began blogging on Xanga, in 2008, whilst I was my wife’s primary caregiver. I needed a constructive outlet for all that I was feeling and thinking. I also needed to begin a network for the looming day when she would be gone and our son would be out of the house and on his own. Xanga folded, more or less, in 2011, the year Penny passed and son, Aram, entered the U.S. Navy.
I found that WordPress, first with a free blog site and then a paid site where I could have unlimited storage for my photos, was a fine place to park. Righteous Bruin became Sagittarian Seeker, about a year ago.
This dance is about wanting to live fearlessly, with vulnerability To value and celebrate who I am. I imagine that my life’s journey might touch or inspire others, as I at times feel touched when finding myself reflected in someone else’s words.
To nurture confidence in myself. To dance with courage, ‘cœur‘, ‘corazón‘: Strength and power of my heart. Allowing myself to be vulnerable and risk touching my inner beauty and creativity. To stretch beyond my self defeating beliefs and reach for what seems impossible. To create and share images of my inner journey.
Dancing to the words, To nurture and feed my soul.
My blog title is I refuse to give up. They say “what’s in the name?”……I say everything. This title is self explanatory. My blog is about spiritual journey through life lessons. I believe we are closest to our win just when we reach the toughest spot, so refuse to give up. Remember the Lowest points in your life come just before the beginning of your best phase.
This blog started on my toughest days , I had no clue what it will be like , while writing I realized my love for poetry and I am writing almost everyday since. The purpose is to inspire and motivate the readers and also stay motivated. I refuse to give up on hope …. I refuse to give up on myself ….come what may.
The purpose of my blog – is to be a happy place where anyone can go when they need some cheering up or some positivity. I know how hard things can be in life and how easy it is to feel alone, so i really want my blog to be a place where people can feel important and at home. I talk about tons of different things both vague and specific so I hope that there`s something everyone can relate to.
I decided to start it because I have always known that I wanted to help people, and being so young (21) there`s not many things I am qualified to do to help people, so I figured starting a blog was a good way to reach out to people. I have been through a ton of struggles and I feel like it’s a duty of mine to reach out to people who are going through something similar. It’s hands down the best and most rewarding decision I have made. I hope you and everyone enjoys it.
