tiny steps are a start

26771101034_7cd458dc1a_bIt’s those tiny steps of courage that will enlighten you and guide you, which says a lot about the phrase “sometimes less is more”. Any obstacle can be faced if you have the guts to face it in the first place. Perhaps, really; it’s all about those steps. tiny steps are a start.

As of late, eating lots of junk and weighing myself too often has been the highlight and backfire of 2017 so far. On one hand, I am determined to lose the weight, but at the same time, there are days where all I want is to indulge until my stomach hurts. This has been a threat to the so-called dieting plan; but also, a trigger for the lost girl inside my soul. Continue reading “scale of events”

here’s to independence and you

It’s officially Valentine’s Day…or as I like to call it: self-appreciation day for the women (and men) who are currently not attached by the heart, or simply content with life.Continue reading “here’s to independence and you”

why a broken heart does not define you

Love is like buying a house; you invest time into something that will ultimately either fall apart or benefit your life immensely as the moments turn into cherished memories.

 

The odds of it being the idealistic scenario you imagined in your mind for years is a short branch on a grown tree.

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.

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.
