Hello again, what a long time it has been since my last upload on the blog.
I wasn’t planning to have a hiatus of this length, but it is what it is and I am back with a vengeance.
Truthfully, I have struggled with writer’s block a lot for many months, even years at this point.
Life has been all over the place, so have my emotions. Not being able to convey or express how I’ve been feeling has affected me quite heavily.
I put a lot of pressure on myself in all aspect of life, whether it is my appearance or what my poems are about. The hunger for perfection is insatiable, to put it bluntly.
Creativity has always had a big place in my mind, heart and soul. So to feel like nothing I did was good enough was very taxing on my mental health and it still is, sometimes.
The goal is to take baby steps, and start off small and build my way back up the ladder once more. It might not always be consistent or on point, but it will be authentic to me and my journey of it all.
Just wanted to say a big thank you to anyone who has followed or just discovered my blog on here. Any engagement I receive is wholeheartedly appreciated. It truly means the world and encourages me to continue, even if I’m not feeling my best.
What are my plans for the months ahead?
As of now, I hope to update the blog at least once a week, if not more. It all depends on life’s schedule and God’s plan for me on this path.
I count my blessings every day that I have good health, a wonderful support system and an overall decent life.
That’s not to say that there won’t be challenges along the way, but I will take that on if the occasion arises.
For the time being, I want to remain present and in tune with the universe so a hiatus like the previous one is out of the question.
Balance is key, which an impatient person like me needs to be reminded of on a daily basis.
It is my hope that I can commence further work on my third poetry collection, and make progress with that as it has been four years since A Cryptic Human Entity.
Well, as of tomorrow it will be the 4th anniversary of that second poetry book and I still cannot fathom it.
The theme for the next book is still up for debate. I feel like a lot has changed and evolved since my initial concept for it, that I might do something completely different.
I have a lot that I want to share and heal from on an emotional level, timing is key too.
There’s a chance I might do a mini version of the next collection, and a full, extended edition of the poetry book next year. So excited to finally start this project in a proper way.
Until then, stay tuned for more updates as I go along. After all, we only have the life God gave us, we need to make every second count.
And also, happy belated 7th anniversary to my pride and joy, this little blog of mine, DAYDREAM MADNESS.
It’s also my birthday in 12 days, how exciting! But anyway, hope you all have an amazing rest of your weekend and I’ll speak to you soon.
Happy Sunday and God bless you all!
