Outlet For The Mind



A highly productive day, if I do say so myself.

Got everyone by 8pm, which is very rare, as I often get quite distracted from too many tasks at one time. Hoping tomorrow will be equally as rewarding.

I honestly want to start work on the new book project, but I have no idea where to begin. It’s been a while since I created the last collection, so I’m currently stuck on what theme I have in mind.

A part of me wants to stick with the original concept, but I feel like I’ve outgrown the subject matter, in a way.

For some reason, the darker things were easier to express on paper, when no one could see any of it. There’s so much I have left to say, about many things in particular. How I word these feelings will be interesting.

It’s all a work in progress, but I do want this year to be creatively productive and I do want to challenge myself. This comfort zone of mine doesn’t help much.

With poetry, or any kind of writing, there’s a lot to consider.

I’ll probably go into more detail in the next few days or so, but in the meantime, I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe.

Sunday Thoughts



Today was a lot, I honestly didn’t feel too great earlier, but after some pain relief, things were okay again. No, it wasn’t cold related, it was simply a case of temporary, yet uncomfortable stomach pains that subsided; to my relief.

I’ve got my energy back too, which is a good sign.

Sunday is here once more, and a new week is about to begin shortly.

Every week feels the same, in my opinion, and I am sure a lot of people feel this way about it too. Having a routine helps a lot, keeps me occupied and on track.

Going to bed soon, but I wanted to share some of my thoughts, and also get some studies completed in the meantime. I enjoy online lessons, don’t get me wrong, but you can’t beat in-person communication and learning.

If only 15 year old me had felt that way ten years ago. Times have changed.

A lot to be grateful for, such as my health, my family and friends, and all of the people I have come to know through the blog and other social media.

Think I’ll end the post for tonight, and get the other things done before I head off to sleep. Hope you’re all staying safe, and talk to you soon.

Typical Monday Feelings


It’s February 1st! Hello, we meet again.

Such a great start, but terribly frustrating end to this Monday evening.

It’s safe to say that I’m kind of done with certain companies and their glitchy websites. Trying to take a deep breath and relax my mind, but it’s difficult sometimes.

Anyway, I have a lot of things to do tomorrow, so wish me luck, that my thoughts don’t get the best of me. Life is so messy at times, but here’s to me trying to persevere through the challenges it brings along.

May all of you have a much better evening, take care 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.

The Writing Streak Continues

An early addition, for me anyway.


Hello readers, bloggers and human beings.

Found it a little difficult knowing what to write, but I want to keep this streak of writing alive for the time being. After all, this is a personal blog.

I’ve been meaning to start work on my next book of poetry, although it’s still a work in progress. A lot is going on, but I’m feeling positive so far.

Focusing on my health is a priority at the moment, as well as other things alongside that. I am determined to stick to my resolutions this year, in a healthy and gradual way. I try not to call it ‘dieting’ as it can trigger unhealthy eating habits.

Being the impatient young woman I am, it can feel like this whole process is taking a long time, yet I do understand that it’s not an overnight change.

Anyway, I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.

Stay safe, take care, be kind.

Emotive Tuesday



Slightly mixed feelings about today.

Certain things have changed, which I only found out via a brief phone call.

Lack of communication can be incredibly frustrating, but I suppose that’s how it is sometimes. That said, I do still have hope. How much of it I’ll have left as time goes on, only time will tell. For the time being, I remain neutral on the subject.

I doubt I’ll sleep much, so I’ll probably be writing, possibly be checking my emails and completing math work for my online course, take my mind off the stress.

Remaining positive is the main objective, although it can be difficult when your emotions are all over the place. What usually helps me is music, writing on the blog and staying hydrated. (In my case, it’s water)

What I listen to is very much influenced by how I feel, as it is for most people, right? Anyway, I still have a lot to be grateful for, and mindful of.

Remember to take a deep breath, be kind to yourself and others.

Have a safe and wonderful Tuesday.

Clarity To Mind



Felt more calm recently and I appreciate that a lot, to be honest.

I don’t necessarily handle stress all too well, and it shows, despite how much I try and hide it behind a smile or laugh. These days, the amount of gratitude I have in my heart for each day now is crazy. But, of course, in a good way.

Waking up each day, with clarity and peace of mind, that’s something to feel good about. Positivity despite the chaos life might bring, and the obstacles we have to overcome to see the beacon of hope.

Life is not meant to be easy, I know that. I suppose, it’s human of me to sometimes wish it was.

All in all, there’s a lot of blessings to be thankful for, and even difficult moments, the ones that made me a stronger, wiser, better version of me.

Minimalist Aspirations



The simplicity of my new blog layout makes it so enjoyable to visit the homepage. I’ve always adored simple designs; the sophisticated, clean look.

For me, it caught my eye from an early age. As I’ve gotten older, it is a constant mission to find new ways to declutter, modify and recycle.

I hope to become better in the near future, doing my part to help the environment. For example, my bedroom is a mess at the moment.

Quite intrigued by interior design, it’s a shame that most things can be so expensive and hard to obtain. Not all things, but the few, particular bits and bobs we find ourselves looking at online, or off.

When people say it can help influence how you feel, they’re not wrong.

From the color of your walls, to the bedding you purchase for your bed, all these things can brighten up your life, at least a little. I’m not particularly keen on magnolia, but it is a warm shade, quite welcoming if I’m honest.

Oh, that’s another of my resolutions for 2021: make the house look more comfy, I also need to take the Christmas tree down, but that’s another story.

There’s a lot of things I’d change, but I’m not in a rush to do so, as of yet.


I wish you all a wonderful day (or evening)


Take care,

Mila. Xo
