tonight’s note to you

Saturday nights are the best, and being able to update my blog in peace is another perk.

I was going to post a lengthy piece, but I feel quite tired after the day I’ve had, been awake since 6 in the morning; it’s surprising how much energy kids have when you simply don’t.

May this weekend be as wonderful as you are, take care and I hope you enjoy this evening.

The Key To Maintaining A Blog

Having a blog is a wonderful opportunity, whether it’s for personal purposes or as part of a growing business/network, as it gives you the platform to express your thoughts, expand your ideas, and the freedom to create content you feel is most appropriate for this particular venture.

Always Remain You In Time

When life seems to improve, you start to feel a little better about the coming months ahead. I’m excited to see what this year will bring me, or who I’ll meet as of yet.

To live is a blessing, but to have lived, a fulfilled life; of beautiful moments, precious memories and everlasting joy is a treasure in one’s eyes. It melts your heart like butter, and reminds you just how lucky you are, as a human, and as a person.

A little nudge to the obstacles that have tried, and not succeeded in bringing one’s soul down. Let love guide your heart, and let light fill your mind, remain you in time.

 

another pain bites the dust

Well…apart from the post-extraction part, I’m feeling really good. Tooth extractions are never fun, but I’ve had problems with that one back tooth since 2013, so letting it go was the easiest decision of 2017, by a long shot.

This previous weekend, I was in so much discomfort and pain; literally a sigh of relief in knowing it’s all over. Still a lot of stuff to do today but right now I’m resting until I have to go out of the door again. The whole point of this blog is to document life and that’s what I am doing. It’s not an interesting read, but sometimes, you just need to have an outlet.

My secondary blog is a different story, that’s where I’ll be posting drafts, poems and other random bits of writing, so if that seems appealing at all, check it out: Lay Your Hands Bare.

Facing Your Fears

Dentist appointment in two hours. I’m relieved, but also eager to get it over with. No matter how many times I go there, it still manages to bring out my nervous side. But like people say, if you don’t face your fears, you’ll never get over them. At least I hope it does.

mind struck a nerve

I had this need to write out my feelings on here and I hope you don’t mind.

Well, my brain is at war with my heart, clearly, because nostalgia has crept into my thoughts again, it’s heavy and demanding. 

Right now it’s four in the morning, and perhaps the lonely hour is upon us, which reminds me of previous late night discussions between me and an old friend; someone who ultimately became a ghost in the shadows. 

The point of this post is, there isn’t one. 

I have no clue as to why I need to express myself in the middle of the night. 

Maybe it’s the longing to see your eyes the minute I wake up in the coming hours, or just the sense of knowing you’re present. To know everything will be fine in the end, that you’ll be here to cushion the impact.

To say that I miss you is an understatement. To say that I didn’t wish for a second chance to know you is greater.

But life can be a bitter lemon, and sometimes, it’s an apple you can sink your teeth into.

Be careful with your heart, but love as if you’ve never been hurt before. Follow your heart, dreams, instinct, gut feeling.

We only have this life; cherish every moment.

nearly a milestone

Checked out my stats earlier, and it seems that my blog has reached almost 1k views and 100 followers since I created it in mid-2015. Now, for some people, it seems like a small number but to me, it certainly means a lot more. I never thought anyone would be interested in what I had to say, which makes this even more humbling to witness, nearly two years later.

window of opportunity

Created my first CV today, and it’s a bittersweet feeling because 1. I don’t like the fact that I’m getting older, although the freedom and independence is of course delightful, and 2. because I don’t have a long employment history due to me helping my family out a lot.

It’s not that I’m lacking the skills, well maybe, but more lacking the overall experience of being in full-time work. As someone who has tried but failed to keep a job, most times because of my anxiety, attention to detail or the boss’ idealistic demands, that means it’s a little scary applying for jobs, let alone creating a list of my accomplishments and so forth.

From an early age, I’ve always been an intellectual person, someone who takes pride in what she achieves in life and takes the bad and transforms it into something of good use and that’s how I have coped with tough situations, obstacles, learning curbs etc.

Hopefully as I get older, work and stability comes easier in life.

hello February

Changed my header image/color scheme and I’m satisfied as of right now.

If anyone wondered, here’s the story behind the main topic: the bag I was using today is one of my favorite ones, and the print really is stunning, by then; it kind of struck me how cool it would look as the front image of my blog.

As soon as I arrived home, my blog name was added as text to the photo, and the rest is history. Makes my page look a tiny bit more sophisticated, I think. But enough of that.

February, I love you already.

save your pennies, girl!

January is the buzz-kill season of all months…

Christmas is over and done with, you’re paying the price for the aftermath
and that leaves you in a bit of a messy situation, money wise.

The bills are stacking up and it leaves you thinking “can I even afford this coffee?”

It’s a self-made problem, but I’m trying to curb my spending habits.

Perhaps I should stick to a less expensive option…maybe.
Note to self in the future: please save your pennies, girl!
