Who Am I?

Hello, I’m Hymesha (Hi-Meesha), a 30-something emotionally driven, fallible, opinionated real-life blogger from Bermuda, living in the UK. I started Sum Of Her as a way to work through my emotions; one word, one post at a time towards a better tomorrow while learning to live for me, because living life based on other people’s opinion is slavery.

At some point in our lives, we all reach that moment when we realise the changes that we need and or want to make to be a better version of ourselves; I guess you can say I have reached that point. The truth is, I have been there many times before, but at some point, we have to get tired of self-diagnosing ourselves as insane, for doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results.

Opinionated & emotionally driven is just a small part of who I am. I am an emotional, Sunday movie watching, crying during comedies, wears my heart on my sleeve kind of girl. I make mistakes (that’s putting it lightly, I have fucked up), I have good and bad days, and I am fallible just like you. I strive every day to be a better version of myself and to love and accept me for who I am.

This blog serves as my not so private diary documenting my journey.

So, What Is Sum Of Her All About?!

Sum Of Her is a no holds barred, not so private diary—tales from the heart if you will.

Love. Laughter. Mistakes. Pain. Lessons. Truth. Purpose. Life. Everything that makes us human.

A Blog can tell you a lot about a person, including mine. This blog is my creative outlet and my very own corner of the WWW. Here I intend to share my tales and truths, thoughts, and of course my views on life, love + everything in between. It is filled with emotionally written posts of my opinions, life experiences, and maybe a few random musings here and there. Filled with truths, laughter, pain, and love—an up close and personal view of the diary/thoughts of an emotionally driven woman.

By writing this blog, I hope to provide others who are on their journey or those who want to know that they are not alone and to show that it is normal to have flaws and that it is OK not to be OK. We all have down days, and it is those days were we develop strength. At the age of *coughs* 30-something, I have certainly had my share of ups and downs, (but then again who hasn’t).

I started blogging over five years ago, but shit happened, life happened, and my writing faded, and life went on with or without my writing. I have been in love with writing ever since I realised that my journal would never judge me. I am learning to have a whole new outlook on life, and I am on a mission to live my life regardless of my past mistakes, flaws and the opinions of others.

I have spent most of my life if not all of my life window shopping, looking in through the glass at a world I desperately wanted to be a part of but felt like I would never fit in.

Sum Of Her is my story, my thoughts, my emotions, my opinions and everything else in between. It is a no holds barred diary detailing life as I view it; it is my journey. From love to hate, friends to acquaintances, smiles to tears, join me on this journey as I take one word at a time towards a better tomorrow.

This is my journey.

    Hi, Hymesha,

    Lovely introduction from you.
    How long have you had the diagnosis/how long have you had the condition? We have a friend who was struck with it from out of nowhere. He was about 45 or 50. It made it difficult for him to speak for a year– but now he seems fully recovered. I hope for the best with your case also. I have a 5 year old son who was just diagnosed with epilepsy, and another son who is 9 and is on the autism spectrum but has done magnificently. Don’t give up! You sound strong and determined. We all have flaws only some may appear more visible than others.

      Hi Kinneret,
      I have had the diagnosis for about 5 years now. Everyday I learn something new. I am determined to make it so I can’t afford to give up
