It’s a new day, but a slow one…Continue reading “Quite A Slow Monday”
This post is going to be more upbeat and positive than the last few (or perhaps I should say ten?)
Yes, still got a lot of things on my mind currently which has been very challenging and awful for my mental health, but I’m still trying to get through life with gratitude and strength.
So, that being said: I passed my course!
Not entirely surprised, I did have a good feeling about taking the exam, so that was nice.
Excuse the lateness of my recent posts on the blog. A lot is on my mind, so bear with me.
Have a great evening, everyone.
Writing used to be easier than this, the amount of times I’ve had writer’s block in the last few years is not great.
It went from constant inspiration at my fingertips, to barely being able to express myself in words at all.
Self-expression is an escape from the stresses of life, so is journaling, which I should do more of.
Being your own worst critic can be a blessing or a curse, maybe a little bit of both? A reason to do better, but at the same time, too much expectation leads to disappointment.
Hoping for more inspiration in the long run. We’ll see how the week goes.
Happy Monday 🙂
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.
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.
When things don’t quite go to plan, your stress levels can go through the roof if you’re not careful. At least, that’s how it felt for me today.
Monday felt particularly blue, so I definitely made an effort to be kind to myself. It can be easy to get overwhelmed by our thoughts in the moment, experienced that one too many times in my life.
I actually found myself buying a self-help audiobook out of curiosity about how to manage emotions in times of feeling this way. That was certainly helpful, hearing other people’s experiences and what helps them balance it all out.
Easier said than done, as I’m sure a lot of people will say about this too.
If the past year has taught me anything, it’s that looking after yourself and your mental health is so important. When you nurture your mind, your body and your soul, everything else will fall into place, eventually.
This will probably be a short blog entry for the time being, but I’m hoping to get an early start tomorrow morning and write more in depth, as well as get a lot of other things done too.
Can’t believe my birthday is in 16 days, not that I’m counting down, necessarily. Although, it is very strange at times. You’re only as young as you are in this moment, or so I’ve heard over the years.
It would be interesting to know what life would look like in the future, the not knowing part of it all does bother me, until I tend to ask myself this question: Do I really want to know my future?
Yes, and no.
I’m sure a lot of people are possibly curious about this type of thing, right?
It’s natural to think about it as you get older and wiser, life is a journey, after all. And life’s set of scenarios lead us down our own customized path.
Perhaps, it’s not up to us. I keep an open mind and heart when it comes to that, because all I want is peace of mind, above anything else, if I’m being completely blunt.
But to end this post on a positive note, I have learned so much in the last couple of years, and I just hope to keep learning, growing, blossoming into the person I was destined to be at the right time.
Have a great Tuesday and stay well!
Do you ever hear or see something that leaves you in a deep train of thought for the rest of the evening? That’s so me tonight.
I think I’ve managed to navigate my emotions to a happier place, for the time being. How long that will last, who knows, but I appreciate it and try to embrace it.
Emotions can be so complex and hard to navigate, process and understand in a logical way. Truth be told, that has been me many times.
As I’m getting older, the appreciation for my strength during the darkest of times has only increased. It reminds me that life is a journey, and healing of any kind takes a lot of patience.
Wasn’t planning to talk about this, but I felt compelled to.
All I can say is: take your time, it’ll get better.
That’s all for today, stay safe.
It’s been a surprisingly good day.
Despite the fact that I’m absolutely exhausted from my walk earlier and so nervous about getting my exam result at some point next week, the hope is still there.
Was close to falling asleep before, so gathering some energy to write a quick post on here took a lot.
A long weekend, you can’t complain about that, can you?
My birthday is also getting closer by the hour and I’m still very conflicted.
Yes, getting older is great, you learn so much in a small space of time and I’m grateful.
It can be quite bittersweet sometimes, though.
All in all, happy Friday everyone!
The next couple of days are going to be a lot, so I’ll probably try and get some interesting subjects and topics written up and discussed in advance.
We’ll see how it goes, I can’t necessarily promise anything, because who knows what the next day or two will bring and so forth, if that makes sense?
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
