Mindful Days

Wasn’t planning to write a blog post so late, but here we are, once again.

There was a lot of things I didn’t necessarily get done to the best of my ability, however, I did have a balanced day. Doesn’t always happen, yet I do try and appreciate all the good moments in life.

Learning how to stay mindful and being kind to myself, it has been such a long journey and I’m still learning new things every day, which is interesting at times.

Going to start scheduling posts in advance from either tomorrow or the start of next week. It might inspire me to work on my new book more too, we’ll see.

Balanced Mondays

Surprisingly great start to the week, minus the headaches that come and go these days.

Hoping it stays like this, at least for a bit. Positive and bright days like this are so appreciated.

I finally get my new exercise weights tomorrow, which is great because I ordered them like, two weeks ago. Going to try and schedule future posts in advance so I can keep the blog more organized.

Would also like to go through every old post on here and tweak them a little, perhaps change the layout/theme and a few other things as well.

I keep saying I will, but somehow, I forget or I don’t have the energy for it.

Regardless, have a wonderful day/evening wherever you are.

Strength In You

The beauty of small things that bring you a little bit of joy, and how precious it is.

It makes you appreciate your life, your hobbies, the sun in the sky and each day of your existence.

Not every day is easy, not every day is hard. Balance is key, for the most part. Over time, strength develops.

Happy Friday!

Hello Again, April

It’s April 1st and today is not any different, in my opinion.

The only fun part is the 4 day weekend, but it would have been more entertaining if current circumstances weren’t happening, I’m sure.

Hard to believe my birthday is next month, it doesn’t feel like it at all.

Time went by so quick, I often wonder if it’s just me thinking so or something else. Another month is here, nonetheless. The weather has been wonderful here, so that’s a positive.

Been in such an organizing mood recently, it’s just a shame certain furniture can be so expensive. I’m not picky, but I enjoy various aesthetics, whilst sticking to affordable prices. The more deals and ways to save money, the better.

Since the beginning of 2021, I’ve been so into saving money and tried to better with money as a whole.

That aside, I’m ready for the weekend to begin. Bring it on.

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.

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.

Analysis Of The Healing Process

There’s a chance I might ramble tonight, my emotions have been all over the place, so bear with me. It’s been a rough day, in terms of lacking motivation and not feeling like myself.

One of those days, mother nature does not make things any easier, so there’s that. I managed to get it together later on in the day; did a 30 minute workout, took all my supplements, did my skincare, ate consistently throughout the day, got some new groceries in the morning.

So, all in all, I got through the worst of what I was feeling.

As much as sleeping all day and eating junk was an option, I decided to get on with my daily routine, and stay productive. I’m really glad I did, because I feel a lot better.

Not giving in to temptation is something I’m proud of. In the past, I thought the best way to feel better was to eat junk, distract myself with sleep or binge watch a show or two. All those things are okay to do in moderation, but it doesn’t solve the problem.

I’m trying to teach myself discipline, self-control in terms of food and what I consume on a regular basis. Working on these things is not easy, you don’t change habits overnight, but over time, it becomes easier to manage and keep under control.

You have to dig deep, when it comes to understanding why you do certain things, and the predictable patterns that arise as a result. Once you understand the root cause, that’s when you can properly begin the healing process.

Trauma of any kind is hard to process, and it can take a long time to face it, acknowledge it, be able to speak about it, and also, learn to heal from it and move forward.

Every person’s journey is different, and that’s something I always bear in mind when talking about my own experiences in life, what I’ve been through and how it made me the person I am today.

I think I’ll leave it at that for now, I might elaborate further in future posts on the blog. Excuse the essay tonight, it’s not often I get so invested in what I write, although that is the whole point of DAYDREAM MADNESS.

This is my sanctuary of thought, where I can speak openly and feel a sense of comfort. Writing has always been a powerful outlet for me, it helped me through some dark times, which I’ll be forever grateful for.

Have a good evening, take care of you, stay kind.

Simple Accomplishments

Another day, another blog post on DAYDREAM MADNESS.


I was going to write this earlier in the day, but lost track of time and better late than never, in my opinion.

Got my whole list ticked off before 8pm, so that was a nice feeling.

Started some new supplements today, which really helped my energy levels. I’ve become quite interested in all things health, nutrition and more.

To be honest, I’ve never felt better. I truly wish I had found this motivation sooner than I did, but I lost interest many times in the past.

As I got older, I definitely appreciated myself a lot more, took the time to better my life for me and no one else. Every person’s journey is different, and mine has always been imbalanced as of recent years.

More than ever, I’m determined to stay on track and find balance.

Easier said than done, but I think it’s going pretty well so far.

Going to sleep rather soon, I need all the rest I can get for tomorrow’s long day ahead. Wishing you all well, take care of yourselves and stay safe.

Motivation On The Horizon



Sundays honestly is my favorite day of the week. I don’t know if that makes me feel good about life, or just old? Also, the aftermath of eating junk food over two days was a lot. I actually don’t miss it at all, which is quite a new thing for me.

But, that’s just my thoughts regarding that. It does confirm to me that I feel much better eating meals that I cook from scratch, and it also saves me a lot of money in the long run, so that’s another positive way of encouraging myself to stay on track with my change of lifestyle and overall health journey.

I prefer to not call it a diet, because that can bring out some lingering insecurities of mine. All I can say is, I’m working on it. Moderation is key, so is a balanced lifestyle and understanding the importance of nutrition.

It’ll take time, but the end result will make all of this worth my while.

This past month or so has been a real eye-opener.

It’s February 1st tomorrow, which is really hard to believe, but time doesn’t stand still for anyone. Spent a lot of time reflecting and moving ahead and I look forward to this next month.

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday, stay safe.

Weekend Motivation



Having the willpower to stay on track with exercise and eating well seems a lot more difficult during the weekends. I do enjoy working out, aerobic dance is fun, wireless earbuds have been one of the best purchases that I made in 2020.

I did plan to get another hour of exercise in before the end of today, but I already did 30 minutes and that was a good start. Incorporating that into my routine each day is something that I’m still working on, but the gradual weight loss has been very encouraging to witness.

During this lockdown, I’ve really been interested in fitness and overall health in general, which has been an interesting journey by all means.

The end goal has always been to become healthier, in a gradual, healthy way and I honestly do believe it’ll be worth it in the end. Patience is difficult, I am the most impatient person on this planet.

Positive affirmations help too, keeping track of your progress and just knowing that these things take time, there is no transformation overnight.

Remembering to be kind to yourself is important, I know I’ve had my fair share of insecurities. It’s always so wonderful seeing others be body positive, and it reminds me that I’ll get there too, eventually.

Getting older, you feel more comfortable in your skin, and that’s very accurate to some extent. It can be such a complex subject, especially in today’s society.

Regardless, I’m proud of my progress so far, and it’s nice to feel good about yourself. When I reflect back to how teenage me felt, I just wish I could tell her that things will be okay.

Anyway, excuse the long essay on here. Stay safe & well.
