I wear no titles.
I assign myself no labels.
My passion for words, the gift of being able to translate, articulate, describe a thousand emotions, carries its own description of perfection. Uncategorized in my skill, I freely express my word, my truth.
Introducing myself, I go by the name of Catrina Sophia. And I appreciate the time you have taken to stop by. It’s a pleasure to have you.
You should know that life is the spring-board to every piece I produce. As I continue to plough what has been set within me, I can only imagine what this harvest will become.
For me, the beauty of life often lies in the words I find to articulate it….those moments where what my eyes have seen and what my mind has caressed, becomes birthed through words.
I believe that the sadness of painful experiences only remain sad and painful for as long as they are left unspoken, unexpressed, unreleased, un-birthed…
People often say that actions speak louder than words and that can be very true. Silence can speak a million words all by itself – but sometimes, the truth can go unnoticed in silent action. Silence has its own frequency. I myself spent many years being choked by silence. Nobody would have known! My voice was lost. Depleted. Weakened by situations outside of my control. I grow to accept and give thanks for these sequences of events for two key reasons:
1. Those who do not know their own voice cannot nurture the voice of another
2. My gift was nurtured whilst I had no voice – still, there was an internal word that saved me.
I’ve found that real connections, those potent encounters, interactions, experiences, are sometimes best found and felt when silence is broken. There is a time for silence and there is a time to speak!!
Givinbirth2word is an entity inspired by my past, present and future. The future remains bright as long as I am able and free enough within myself to write. It’s easy to pick up a pen, grab a piece of paper, but to ask your mind and your soul to connect for a fusion of clarity is an event much more difficult to master.
Givinbirth2word is proof that life lives in expression; that healing lies in exploration of soul through a language of hope; what the eyes see is only truly birthed when words meet them. And so, I dare you to speak……Because somehow, there is life in it….
Words are like the light shining in on a dark tunnel; like the rise that tells the earth to awake; like the fall that tells the world to sleep; the difference between chains and freedom; between the cry of a woman giving birth and joy of a woman giving birth. The experience can be extremely painful, but in the end, it is worth the creation it produces…
So, I dare you to speak….I dare you to join me….x
