Allow me to be candid with you all for a moment.
Awhile back, I went on hiatus and took a break from the blogging world because I realized that I felt a lack of fulfillment and satisfaction in my posts.
I focused on the expectations of my readers, rather than concentrating on my passions.
Eventually I revisited the idea of blogging, with the intent to let go of any anticipation. I decided that I would solely begin DatuKnows in order to share my thoughts, or whatever it is my heart desires at the moment.
I have a strong interest in writing and promoting positive dialogue. So let’s look at this blog as some sort of conversation.
Today’s topic: Mental Health + Self-Care
I’ve decided to start a new section within my blog entitled “Dear Datu.” Obviously playing on the idea of writing in one’s diary, I intend to spill out whatever is consuming my mind at that particular moment.
Each entry will be completely unedited to maintain my thoughts and their authenticity.
I don’t know how long this will go on, but I assume it will be interesting. Or at the very least, a bit therapeutic on my part.
We shall see.

It’s times like this I really want to quit. My days are never-ending and there is no allotted time for relaxation within my schedule. I’m exhausted.
Some people say that during these occasions of vulnerability, we can discover some sort of revelation. Call what you will an “ah-ha” moment. Right now it’s feeling more like a “ha-ha” moment if you ask me.
