Sixth Anniversary Of The Blog

Today is the sixth anniversary of my beautiful, little sanctuary on this side of the internet. To say that my blog means the world to me would be a complete understatement. And to think that it has been a part of my life since I was 19 is emotional, to say the very least.

DAYDREAM MADNESS was the beginning of a long and complicated journey, it was created before I started independently publishing poetry collections, and as I embark on writing for my third, I can’t help but feel an enormous sense of gratitude for how it has shaped my life and who I am as a person today.

It can feel so weird to look back on certain times in life, yet, it is great to see how life has changed for the better.

I look forward to seeing what the future has in store, but until then, I’ll see you on the next post tomorrow. Have a great day!

And again, happy 6th birthday, DAYDREAM MADNESS. I love you.

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.

Gratitude For Days



Good evening, fellow bloggers.


Before I go to bed soon, I just wanted to quickly make a post.

Finding a lot of comfort in writing on the blog again, and I appreciate it more than words can describe. It took a long time to find my way back here, but now that my writer’s block is finally at bay, and I’m writing on a regular basis, it stops my mind from being too cluttered with thoughts, feelings, opinions etc.

At some point, I’m starting work on this next book, trying not to rush myself with this project. As impatient as I am, getting older definitely teaches you a thing or two.

My birthday is in less than four months time, which is a strange feeling, to say the least. I’m a proud Gemini! Very much complicated, with good intentions at heart.

I’ve got gratitude for days, like the title implies.

Grateful for my family, friends, my faith in the Lord and the positive energy around me.
I have no idea what the future holds for me, but you can always wonder.


Take care, and stay safe, all of you.

True Colors Of A Cruel Time

I have missed writing on here, with all my heart. Every week that passed by, this urge to write, but it was hard to. It’s a long story…

My Blog Is Three Years Old Soon?

Hi, hello. I always say I’m going to write a post and then I just never live up to my promises. Sorry about that. On another note, this blog is almost THREE years old.

Yes.

There is a lot of emotions attached, I must admit. Especially since, this is the longest
I have ever updated and kind of preserved a blog for. Plus, there’s a domain name on here, which is nearly a year old, bought on this blog’s second anniversary date.

I make it sound like it’s my soulmate or something, but this blog has been a vital part of my life in recent years. Not only has it been an emotive outlet in times of need, it has also helped me be more confident in sharing certain things about myself, my writing, life in general.

And it wasn’t always straightforward, in the beginning. When this was first created in May 2015, it had a bunch of theme changes, layout/font experimentation, blog title- changes, until DAYDREAM MADNESS was chosen and I fell in love with it. Basically.

It might actually be the title of my third book of poetry, when I eventually publish and release “A Cryptic Human Entity”, for all the world to see for themselves. But, I don’t know, I like to take things one day at a time.

Although, it is nice to plan out in your head, all of these exciting ideas.

Creativity is such a wonderful thing most times, depending on your use of it.

Anyway, that’s enough writing for now. I’ll maybe write a shorter post later today, or tomorrow. It all depends if I’m not in pain because of this tooth issue I’ve been having recently.

Why December Is THE Month Of All Years

There’s something truly magical about this time of year. We have a wonderful excuse to decorate our houses with everything gold, sparkly and shiny. It’s also another reason to spread some happiness and cheer with the people around us. Whether it’s family, close friends or new companions in life, it’s the memories we create that is of importance, not how long we know the person. But anyway, I’m excited for the remainder of 2017. I’ll likely cherish every moment, because I know it’s coming to an end soon, and it’s been quite a vital year for me, in terms of self-growth, independence, inner strength, love, and most of all: Happiness.

It’s been a little quiet on my blog and I’m sorry about that. Haven’t really had the time to post stuff on here, so it’s definitely not intentional. Also, I worked on a keepsake journal for most of October and November, which is in production right now, I’m really pleased about that. It’s not going to be listed for sale, I mainly just wanted to create something that is me and is my own little place to write down thoughts, I also included brand new poetry within this project, motivational pieces, and of course, some inspirational words of wisdom and clarity. It’s the journal for the journey, as I like to say.

 

It’s hard to believe I’ve now self-published two projects of mine. A poetry book and a self-help/care journal. Really proud of my accomplishments this year. My second book/collection of poetry will be out sometime in 2018. And it has a title…

 

A Cryptic Human Entity will be released in mid-2018 and will have approximately 50-75 pages and it’ll be my most personal collection to date. A carefully selected list of poetry with subjects such as lust, intense emotions, desire and passion. It’s still a work in progress as I write, but for this particular project, I really wanted to take my time in creating a preferred choice of depth, as well as a blank canvas for one’s truth to unveil. It is always important to write from the heart and to mean every word, and feel brave enough to open up about our darker, harder-to-reach emotions.

Even now, as I talk about my second book, it’s strange yet I am excited to complete my mission of honest creativity. In the past, I would have never considered doing something quite like this. Wouldn’t even have stuck to a blog like this. So, every little step is a new accomplishment in my eyes. Honestly grateful for all things I have witnessed and achieved in 2017. And I think next year will be even greater than the previous.

 
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, my next post will be up either tomorrow or Monday, depending on how inspired I am to write. Let’s hope my writer’s block doesn’t return for a while. xo

 

 

Writing Session #31

So, the last Writing Session is being written as we speak. It’s been quite a journey in terms of sticking to a writing routine. Proud of myself for not giving up on what could have been, easily, a disaster.

But all that said, I have enjoyed the idea of posting every day, whether it’s meaningful, deeper thoughts or simply, a ramble of the moment. The variation keeps the mind at peace, which is a good thing, I suppose.

WHAT HAS IT TAUGHT ME ABOUT BLOGGING?

A lot, actually. It has made me appreciate my blog a lot more. And also, if anyone noticed, I recently changed themes. This one is more sleek and nicer than the previous. Wanted to make it different and finally, I found it. Nothing quite like a good blog makeover. Personally, I’m quite satisfied.

NEXT ON MY BLOG AGENDA:

 

  • Editing of older posts.
  • Buying a good camera.
  • Regular posts and quotes.

Writing Session #30

Tomorrow’s night going to be fun. Not as bold or exciting for me personally, but for many others, I am sure. Regardless of what celebration, I’m content with my books and poetry. Writing for my second book too, and I need all the inspiration I can get when it comes to it. A title has been set, which I’ll be announcing next month, as well as the explanation behind what it represents as a whole. There’s a cover design this time, which a dear friend is going to help me with. I swear, I have the best people in my life right now.

So, all credit due goes to her, and the other muses that have inspired me in these last few years (or even longer than that). Some friendships get stronger and better with time. I’m grateful for the ones who have remained true to our bond, and even for the ones who ultimately let go. I don’t necessarily blame them. We sometimes drift apart, it’s human nature, a natural part of life. What might have worked before just didn’t work now and that’s okay.

For this post, I wanted to write a more lengthy piece. But, that’s the great thing about personal blogs. We speak and talk about whatever, and whenever we feel the need to. I try and not be unrealistic in terms of my blog. This is my sanctuary, my happy place and if at least one person likes what I have to say, awesome. Don’t let numbers and statistics ruin you too much.

Halloween is tomorrow, um. Personally, I’ll just be at home, there’s a chance I’ll open the bottle of wine that’s been in my bedroom for what feels like forever. Not necessarily much of a drinker, neither do I have time or a taste for it.  The occasional drink or two is enough for me. Can’t say the same about my coffee habit. A little hypocritical, but, I’m a complex human, don’t judge me! Haha. Well, until next time, which is tomorrow. My last Writing Session will be posted quite early. If anyone has any ideas on what I should do next, feel free to send a message or a comment on here. I’d like to hear from you!

Writing Session #29

Clocks went back today. Good in terms of extra sleep, but having to be productive for another hour seemed like a chore. Thankfully, I got through it just enough to stay positive.

As 2017 slowly comes to an end, the idea of a new year is exciting but petrifying at the same time. It almost feels like you’ve outgrown your favorite shoes, or it’s a sigh of relief after what was a tough year. Either way, I’m thankful for the obstacles faced and people known. After all, our experiences should encourage us, not break us apart. More soon. xo

Writing Session #27

For the first time in this month, I didn’t exactly write much. But, I wanted to put together a little one for you to read now. Earlier was busier than usual, food was to be prepared, dishes to be cleaned and the house to organize. It takes a lot of energy and time to get everything done right. Very therapeutic, though. As well as being able to see an old friend of mine from school. So, perhaps it was worth it. To skip a writing session and spend time outside of the social media circle for one moment or a few. It’s well, so true…

I’ll be writing and publishing a new writing session for tomorrow, a reflective note to an old self. And, a chance to truly reflect on what I have learned about daily expression as a whole. What I have gained from doing this. As well as, simply putting more thought into what it says about this blog. DAYDREAM MADNESS is my happy place and it’s clarity too.
