Welcome to astridswords.ca
My name is Astrid Hardjana-Large and I am the creator of Astrid’s Words. My mission at Astrid’s Words is to inspire love, perseverance and individuality for the Journey of Life through visual and literary perspectives.
My journey of life began when Epilepsy entered my life at the age of eleven and I desire to share, with the world, my experiences and the positive lessons life taught me. I have the experience of accepting Epilepsy into my life, living with daily seizures, accepting the consequences of brain surgery, recovering from a stroke and journeying through a life filled with self-discovery.
Writing has been a great part of my life. Reflections and poetry have been a therapeutic way for me to continuously express myself and grow. Poetry is my favorite way to write and I enjoy creating rhymes to amplify a positive perspective.
Every piece of writing was inspired by life experiences and are reflections. I enjoy using diverse perspectives to inspire all readers. All images on my site have been donated by various artists and are intended to encourage different outlooks on life to accommodate the written words.
Life challenges should never be viewed as limitations, they are personal challenges that help us to maintain our development. The more we persevere, the more we will discover. It is my desire to inspire all readers towards motivation. Please never choose to give up on life. Every life experience is an opportunity for a person to evolve and disclose their personal strengths.
Thank you to everyone for visiting and sharing your thoughts with me. It is a great inspiration to hear from others and know that we can all relate!!
