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, the positive lessons life taught me. In my journey, I have accepted Epilepsy into my daily life, accepted the consequences of brain surgery, am recovering from a stroke and enjoying 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 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 is 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 to maintain our development. The more we persevere, the more we 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 to evolve and disclose 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!!
