On The List: Poetry And Sleep

Either I’m getting old or I just really want to sleep early for once. Although, I might end up listening to a podcast episode or two. That and chilled out music can make any evening perfect.

I’ve been exploring book cover ideas for poetry book #3 and I truly believe I have a good idea of what it should look like, so that’s always an interesting development.

Found myself struggling to write much in the last few days, so writing on the blog can help me get out of that creative block, if that makes sense.

Not always, might I add. Having patience can be tough, I’ll get there eventually. It feels like time is passing by so quickly though, it’s scary.

Also, my birthday is in the next few months, like how?

I have no idea if I’ll be able to do anything, might just relax at home on the day. Hard to believe how close I am to the end of my twenties.

As much as getting older is a great thing and should be embraced more, it is slightly bittersweet because we know life doesn’t last forever. Which is why we should appreciate each day, regardless of the struggles we have faced or continue to face.

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.
