Simple Post For Tonight


I’m feeling quite anxious today, and I have to get up super early tomorrow morning to accomplish some uncomfortable tasks, mainly phone calls that I really don’t want to make, but I have to. It’s not necessarily a big deal, although my overthinking brain says otherwise.

Just want to get this over and done with, I know I’ll feel better once it’s sorted. For the rest of the evening, I’m just trying to unwind and relax, which is easier said than done, in my opinion.

Anyway, to end the post on a slight more positive note, I wanted to express my gratitude to my family and friends, who are the best support system a young woman could have in life.

February Ends Soon


Only two days left of the month, I find it hard to believe at times.

Had a slight “break” from the healthy side of things, but I’m sure it’ll be back on track by Monday. It’s fine, these things happen.

Anyway, I feel like I’m falling asleep as we speak, but I didn’t want to lose my streak of writing on the blog.

To all the new followers, welcome, and thank you for your support.

As we welcome March into our lives, I’m just having this moment of gratitude for many things. Life can be complicated sometimes, but that’s part of the journey and experience.

Late Additions

I honestly feel like I’m going to fall asleep soon, but before I even think of doing so, another blog post needs to be uploaded. Focusing on my writing should be more of a priority than it is.

Finally got my heating/hot water issue sorted earlier today, and I’m really thankful because the weather is incredibly cold tonight.

We’ll see if sleep is on the horizon, or whether insomnia will keep me company until the late hours.

I always say I’ll rest early, then I do the exact opposite. On a positive note, I did get up at a reasonable time in the morning, so that was good yet exhausting by the end of the day.

Might have a browse through other blogs/websites to figure out my topics for the weekend onwards. Fingers crossed that my energy levels will be sufficient, as well as my concentration. I feel it’s been lacking recently.

Anyway, I’ll end it at that. Until tomorrow’s post.

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.

Retail Therapy: Analysis


Retail therapy can be fun, although your wallet might say otherwise.

I’ve definitely had my fair share of impulse buys, last-minute emergency purchases and those “why did I buy that?” moments in my life.

The older I get, the more conscious I become of my spending habits.

And it’s not because I’m frugal, or I always choose the cheaper option.
Sometimes, retail therapy can be slightly addicting, like most things in our daily lives if not in moderation.

To be honest, I used to be quite reckless with money, but over the years, I’ve found some balance with it all. Just making sure all the bills are up-to-date is enough to leave me content.

I often watch these couponing shows, and it’s so interesting how much you could save on the most random items in your household. And also, how much you could save on the things you like or prefer the most.

Budgeting is quite a fun activity for me, as I love to write lists and keep it all organized in my notebook. Ticking off bills is a relief, not everyone has that chance. Life a few years ago was quite different to how it is now, and I truly am grateful for all that I have, and I accept what I can not own, to some extent.

Materialistic items might seem great to own, but in the end, the things that truly matter, you’ll cherish more, sentimental pieces that reflect who you are and what you love.

There’s a lot of people who aren’t fortunate to have those things, a tough reality for many. If I’m able to help someone in need, I try to do so.

Gratitude is something that keeps me humble, and at peace.

Especially in these unpredictable times we’re living in now.
It makes you appreciate what you have, and the ones you love.

This was something I wanted to talk about today, I’m not entirely sure why, but it’s often a subject I think about, when I see adverts online and outside, when emails spam my inbox, asking me to buy new things and get nice deals in the process.

Since I’m currently on this health journey of mine this year, I made a promise not to buy new clothes, because there’s simply no need.

Well, not at the moment anyway.

I’m hoping to save more and spend less as the year progresses, and I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to do that, with my mind focused on more important matters.

This is become quite a lengthy post, so I think I’ll leave it at that for now.

I’ll be writing a daily post on the blog until further notice, and if you’ve made it this far, thank you. Have a blessed Friday, take care & stay safe.

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.

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.

Wednesday Thoughts



Halfway through the week and it’s mad how fast time seems to pass by.


Looking forward to a good night’s sleep, after I get some minor study done.
It’s been quite a bittersweet day, but all you can do is just keep certain people in your thoughts and hope they’re doing well.

I could go into further detail, but let’s keep it vague and not to mention, private. On a positive note, a sibling of mine has a birthday tomorrow so that’s something to quietly celebrate at home.

January went by quick, am I right? Lockdown and all the restrictions make most days seem identical, but all in all, as long as you’re staying safe and keeping yourselves protected, that’s the main thing at the moment.

Weather seems to be less cold today, which is nice. It’s dark outside by the time it’s 5pm, sometimes earlier than that. Hopefully, we get a bit of sunshine soon.

I’ll try and write tomorrow’s post a bit earlier in the day, if possible.

As always, stay safe and take care of yourself and others.

A Quiet Tuesday

A late night addition to the blog, but I wanted to make sure that I kept up the daily blogging so here we are.

Another cold day, but it’s been relatively great. Honestly tired right now, going to sleep soon, I’m hoping.

Need to figure out tomorrow’s blog post content as well. I need to start a list of ideas, or something like it.

Anyway, stay safe and take care of you.
