Starting a blog has been a thought that has been wandering in my mind for quite some time. Like most people – myself not being an exception to the rule – I have been caught up with the ups and downs that life has to offer. Along the way I have been able to write down my thoughts, whether it has been an assignment for academia or just to express myself in a more private manner. At some point, instructors, family members, and friends began to plant the seed in my head that my written words should be shared with the rest of the world. Honestly, it makes sense because I have a lot to say and I wouldn’t want my words to die on paper!
The main goal of this blog is to bring people together, focusing on similarities rather than differences. This is specially challenging, because we live in a society that influences exactly the opposite: differences over similarities. Hence, I would like to share ideas from a macro perspective, although still shedding light on micro topics that work as interconnected pieces that lead to a greater thought.
Let’s put it this way: regardless of your sex, gender, ethnicity, sexual preference, mother tongue, culture, age, life experience, social class, background, upbringing, religion, political ideology, education, etcetera – it all falls under the same big umbrella. Before defining who we are based on these concepts, and not matter how different we may seem to be, we all have something very important in common: we are all human beings. That’s the macro look that I set focus on.
I invite readers to think outside of the box and challenge their own thoughts, breaking them down to allow the opportunity to form new ideas and perspectives. Or to the contrary, if my words help readers to reinforce their own ideas and opinions than so be it! All I can ask for is for you to turn your critical thinking on. Don’t be a social echo. Have a voice and let it be heard! Challenge yourself to challenge.
I hope that my words are received with an open mind, and a sincere heart.
