Subtle Changes

Over the next few weeks, I’ve got this vision of changes I want to make, when it comes to the blog. Not entirely sure what these will be at the moment, but it’s good to have subtle changes from time to time, right?

I feel like this is long overdue, we’ll see what occurs shortly as I try and figure all of this out. Anyway, going to bed in a bit, my sleep schedule is very off right now and that needs to be fixed.

Might write in more detail at some point this week, I don’t know yet though.

Have a wonderful evening and I’ll be here tomorrow night, take care.

It’s The Small Things In Life

There’s nothing like a good skincare routine, to make you feel calm and relaxed after a long day. If you can’t tell, I’m so exhausted! Haha.

Although, the weather today was magnificent, sunny and bright until like 8pm which has been so good. It definitely helped when it came to motivating me to complete certain household chores that I had been putting off for hours.

Going to bed straight after this, honestly. Also, thank you for all the new blog follows, I truly appreciate it so much. It brings joy to my day.

Wonderful Sunday

Wanted to quickly write something before I sleep, a relatively calm evening and that’s always good. Busy day ahead, tomorrow is Monday which means a webinar, I also have some phone calls to do, amongst other things.

Slept late into the day, so it was nice to be productive at least some part of my Sunday. I don’t know why, but this is by far, my favorite day.

Anyway, I have a slight headache so I’ll leave it at that for now and write more extensively during this coming week. Fingers crossed I feel better tomorrow.

Complexity Of Being Human

I wanted to dedicate this post to my loved ones, because today’s events have really highlighted the importance of gratitude, appreciating the people we know, the memories we have, the time we spend on this Earth.

So incredibly grateful for my faith too, it really keeps me humble, and it brings comfort to my heart in times of anxiety and stress. Bear in mind, this is my own personal experience with religion, and of course, every person’s life experiences are different, we have our individual paths, journeys, ways of coping and all else.

Felt compelled to get my emotions out tonight, it’s been a long day and heavily emotive. I have a lot to say, not everything leaves the draft section of my mind or the notes on my phone, but sharing my thoughts in moments like these, it makes me feel better.

Over the years, I definitely have tried to become a better version of myself, to learn and grow from the past. Each day is different, there’s good days and bad days, as well as all of those in-between.

Learning how to manage and balance all of this is tricky sometimes, that’s the complexity of being human. So, to conclude this post, feel free to share your own feelings and thoughts, let me know what’s going on in your life and what you’re grateful for. God bless you all.

A Little Poem: Peace Of Mind

All these emotions, running through your mind

When all you want is peace

For healing to set your mind free

And love to bring light

All these thoughts, of which you’ve been consumed

When all you wanted was to feel safe

For time to heal your heart

And the sun to shine on you

Thursday Thoughts

Another late addition to the blog, but I’m here now and that’s all that matters for the time being. Honestly tired, got a slight headache so I can’t wait to sleep tonight.

Not much to say, to be honest. Most days feel like the same one on repeat for the most part. Going to cook tomorrow, which I’m looking forward to, amongst other things.

That’s as creative as my mind will be at this point, hard to believe March is ending in a week and April is around the corner, literally. What a strange feeling.

Going to leave this post at that, I might add things into this later on, but we’ll see. Take care.

Creative Blocks And Complex Minds

Found myself struggling to write, I know inspiration can/will happen at certain times, sometimes when you least expect it to. It has been challenging for a long time, though.

Self-expression used to be easier, especially in my younger years.

The older I become, the harder it gets, knowing what to say and how to articulate that. Emotions are complex, how it affects your actions, the choices you ultimately make.

Being self-aware is good, to some extent. Although, too much of a good thing can also be bad for you in the long run. It can definitely overwhelm your brain, all these thoughts.

Can’t wait for the weekend, if I’m honest.

Fingers crossed I can write something of use soon, we’ll see.

Less Productive Days

Despite the lack of productivity, it has been a wonderful and quiet day.

Going to bed shortly, and I probably should have written earlier, although knowing what to say can be difficult. I hope my creativity returns on a more consistent level, it definitely helps when it comes to encouraging inspiration and future ideas.

We’ll see what happens in the coming days. Until then, I’ll try and just take one day at a time. Its okay to have days where you don’t get as much done as you would like.

Take care, stay safe, be kind and have a great evening.

On The List: Poetry And Sleep

Either I’m getting old or I just really want to sleep early for once. Although, I might end up listening to a podcast episode or two. That and chilled out music can make any evening perfect.

I’ve been exploring book cover ideas for poetry book #3 and I truly believe I have a good idea of what it should look like, so that’s always an interesting development.

Found myself struggling to write much in the last few days, so writing on the blog can help me get out of that creative block, if that makes sense.

Not always, might I add. Having patience can be tough, I’ll get there eventually. It feels like time is passing by so quickly though, it’s scary.

Also, my birthday is in the next few months, like how?

I have no idea if I’ll be able to do anything, might just relax at home on the day. Hard to believe how close I am to the end of my twenties.

As much as getting older is a great thing and should be embraced more, it is slightly bittersweet because we know life doesn’t last forever. Which is why we should appreciate each day, regardless of the struggles we have faced or continue to face.

Space To Feel: Sunday Gratitude

I’ve said this many times, but Sunday is the best day of the week.

A day to unwind, complete a few household chores and take a moment to relax. Been sleeping a lot too, the extra rest was so necessary.

Hoping to start writing more from tomorrow onwards, I need to get into a consistent schedule. Working on this third poetry book is going to take some time, a journey that I am looking forward to.

This was on my mind for the longest time, honestly.

Had too many creative hiatuses in the past, and there was a long time where I didn’t write much at all, my inspiration just wasn’t there anymore.

It’s tough when you truly have a lot of love for writing and creativity as an outlet. I honestly can’t believe I’ve had this blog for almost 6 years, that is so mad.

As someone who made a lot of old blogs and didn’t update them for long, wrote on different websites anonymously and was relatively low profile until I started publishing poetry independently in 2017, the fact I stayed with this one is something I’m proud of.

DAYDREAM MADNESS is my pride and joy and I look forward to seeing where this will lead in the future. Anything can happen, the sky is not the limit.
