Self Care Sunday

Looking after yourself is so important, and that is something that I should make more of a priority in my life.

Today has been very peaceful, I have always loved Sundays. I do wish the weekend could last a bit longer.

Going to try and wake up early tomorrow. It helps me feel better, and starts the day off right.

Being kind to yourself can be so therapeutic and humbling.

A little TLC makes a big difference.

Take care, stay safe and have a great evening.

Steps Forward

If there’s one thing I wish I was good at, it would definitely be drawing.

Often enough, I find myself so taken back at the talent of many gifted artists.

I also wish I could paint beautiful images on canvases too. Being able to express yourself through words is one thing, but creating a visual of your vision is another.

With this next project of mine, I genuinely wanted to take my time, perfect it accordingly to my heart’s content, whilst embracing the beauty of imperfections in the process.

It’s not all aesthetically pleasing, sometimes very far from it. But you can’t always judge a book by its cover, because you never know what magic lies within those pages.

To be honest, I’ve spent enough time being my own worst critic. In this chapter of life, all I want is to feel happy and inspired.

Balancing Life Out

Wasn’t meant to post so late, but I didn’t have a chance to until now.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tired, and I look forward to getting some sleep. But honestly, I’ve got an exam in two days which is making me so nervous.

Anyway, I’ll leave it at that for the time being. Hope you all have a great day!

Things To Look Forward To

I almost forgot to write today, but thankfully I managed to remind myself in time.

A semi-productive day, with a few tasks to be accomplished yet. Got a lot of revision to do in the next few weeks, train tickets to book and much more.

Despite how unpredictable life has been for the longest time, I’m trying to remain on the optimistic side of things, as difficult as that may be at times.

The one thing I am looking forward to the most, is seeing family members for the first time in almost 18 months.

What I also look forward to is completing more work on this next poetry book of mine. Maybe I’ll complete it this year, or perhaps in the next year or so, we’ll see.

As always, I hope you all have a great day.

Sunny Monday

The sunshine has been so wonderful today. It really does put a smile on your face.

Managed to get a good night’s rest as well, which doesn’t happen often.

Been trying to stay organized with the help of writing lists, and it does work to some extent too.

It’s only the start of this new week, but I’m feeling positive about it.

As always, stay safe and have a wonderful evening.

First Day Of 26

One of the best things about celebrating birthdays as an adult is not presents, although any you receive are always appreciated – at least by most.

What I truly love the most is, the people you get to spend time with, the joy in the room. The last year or so has impacted a lot of people’s lives, mentally, emotionally and physically. And my heart goes out to all of those who have lost loved ones and continue to navigate life in these strange and difficult times.

So grateful for the birthday wishes yesterday, and any belated ones I might receive in the days to come.

Bank Holiday weekend is here and I hope you all have a wonderful Friday.

God bless you all and stay safe.

Clean Slate For A New Day

Another one of those nights where I seem to stay up writing in the last minute because not doing so would feel absurd.

Today’s blog entry might be a little short and more spontaneous, but I’m working on it as we speak.

Almost midnight, yet I’m finding it difficult to hibernate for the night. I’ll sleep soon, I promise.

The day has been relatively balanced, with hints of anxiety here and there, in which my inner response was: I had to simply concentrate on other things.

A clean slate for a new day, I tell myself.

My birthday is in two days, almost one if I think about it. It’s a strange feeling, getting older. You learn a lot, or at least in my own experiences.

The more my blog grows and blossoms, I can’t help but feel immense gratitude for the ones who have supported me along the way. It shows me that I’m doing something right, despite how small the achievement might look like currently.

So thank you, for being such a light in my life. And as always, have a beautiful day, or night, depending on where you are in the world.

Appreciation For Little Things

There’s a lot to be grateful for in life, such as your health, the support you have in the form of friends and family. I genuinely appreciate it all; the good, the bad and the ugly.

As much as life can have twists and turns, and a few plot changes along the way, the main point is: it’s not always good, and it’s not always bad.

It can be more complex than that, depending on your circumstances and so forth, but over time, healing does commence a lot of the time. Well, in my experience, getting older has definitely helped me unpack old memories, analyze them and understand it all from a different perspective.

You learn a lot from your experiences, it’s true. I’ve had my fair share of complex memories, feelings and thoughts. But as a whole, I’m grateful for what I have learned and accomplished since then.

Progress is progress, in my opinion. No one is perfect, we all have our strengths and weaknesses, fears, problems, personal battles.

Another thing I want to speak about is the importance of reaching out when you need to. It can be difficult, you might struggle to, until a certain point in your life, but once you find that strength within you to make that decision, to take that first step, the sense of relief that comes with that is liberating.

Well, I suppose I could end tonight’s post on that note.

It’s honestly wonderful to have this blog of mine, this is my sanctuary of thought, a safe place. DAYDREAM MADNESS is my pride and joy, it has been for almost six years, which is hard to believe.

Anyway, I’ll leave it at that for now. Take care of you and stay safe.

Saturday Thoughts

It’s been a long day!

Taking a break from all these chores, it is so lovely to relax.

Sunday’s tomorrow, a lot of things to get done, but as long as I wake up early, it’ll be good.

Appreciating my weekend until Monday arrives once again. I’ll try and sleep soon, hopefully.

Have a wonderful day/evening!

Late Night Planning

I always seem to be writing at 11:00pm and onwards, feels like a bad habit at this point.

Nonetheless, over the weekend, I’m going to try and sleep a tiny bit more and prepare for my second level Math course that’s starting on Monday.

To be honest, I haven’t done much revision for it, although it’s not too different from the previous level. Can’t wait to receive my other qualification in the post too.

Beginning to appreciate numbers as much as I love words.

Hard to believe we’re in week two of January. Where did the time go?

Is it just me, or does anyone feel like time is passing by a lot quicker than previously? Lockdown is one thing, but I don’t know, I’m very curious.
