Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you!
Quite an early write, I say as I write at 9:30pm on this surprisingly wonderful Sunday evening.
Apart from a few things I have to do still, I’ve completed the majority of what I wanted to achieve today, so that’s a good start.
Despite the slight overthinking that lingered from last night, I feel better, and I managed to get my package from the next door neighbor, it was an order from Candy Kittens, to be specific. I don’t really have a sweet tooth anymore, but when/if I do, those are good. Not too sweet/sour, just right.
The reward system my mobile network provider operates has some good moments, free treats are hard to refuse if the price of shipping isn’t too expensive, haha.
Anyway, I feel like I’m rambling and losing my train of thought. I can talk for hours, which some might find hard to believe as I do have my introverted tendencies.
Plus, the heating works and we’re finally out of the minus degree weather.
I don’t really have much to add, except those few feelings and thoughts of mine tonight. I do want to start writing more poetry and other length material, if anyone’s interested in that kind of stuff.
Not the best at it, but who really is? Even the most talented writers have their own imperfections, which is not a bad thing. No one is perfect.
Might talk more about this over the next week or so.
I do believe I might possibly release something this year, but we’ll see. There’s a lot going on in the world, which is quite evident for a lot of us.
Well, I’ll end this post at that. Hope you’re having a good day/night.
When it comes to fear, or the stresses of certain situations, I often try to analyze and accept what I’m feeling at that particular moment.
Sometimes, it’s not always so easy.
My mind is slightly complex, the same yet different to everyone else’s.
I used to feel shame at getting overwhelmed over some things, it felt like I was the only one at times. (bear in mind, I’ve come a long way and it’s not as bad as it used to be)
To be honest, talking about it shouldn’t have to feel awkward. Everyone has their own struggles and worries, some are just more manageable than others.
And that’s okay, something I often tell myself in notes, diary entries etc.
Life has been a strange and complicated journey, but I’m grateful and blessed in many ways, and I’ve got a good support system.
I’m writing this currently on my phone because I have no energy to use my laptop. Got a few things to do tomorrow, nothing special.
Just hoping that it’ll be okay and I’ll have my peace of mind restored in no time.
This brings us to the end of another blog entry.
I’ll be back tomorrow to share yet another day of thoughts. This is truly a sanctuary for my mind.
God bless you all, and stay safe.
Despite a late start to the day, I completed what I had to do, and that was good enough for me. The cold weather doesn’t really help either, especially in the last week.
I might have been born in a cold place, but I’m not too fond of it.
For the first years of my life, I was born and raised in Scandinavia (Northern Sweden to be exact)
Anyway, I’ve always been proud of my background, and it’s an important part of my identity, who I am. As well as the experiences that have shaped me into the current version of myself.
I think I’m beginning to ramble now, ever so slightly.
Think it’s time to sleep soon, since I stayed awake a bit too late the previous night. Stay safe and stay warm this evening.
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.
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.
As much as I am grateful for life as it is today, I can’t help but wonder about what could have been in another outcome of events. I know, it’s kind of ridiculous at this point.
But sometimes, your mind just wants to know.
When you have to discuss certain parts of your life, I suppose the curious side of you emerges.
I’ve learned a lot about my past over the last few years or so. Suppressing your feelings about it is a temporary solution. Such a complex journey, yet I do believe that I have found closure as a result.
We can’t change our pasts, unfortunately. As tough as that is for someone like me in moments like this, all I can do is acknowledge it, process it to the best of my ability and accept it.
That’s easier said than done, ultimately.
As I get older, I do hope that things start to make a little more sense.
Well, maybe I’ll write a book about it, or perhaps a novel of some kind. That’s something I hope to do in my later years. We’ll see if it happens.
Stay safe, and I hope you all have a wonderful evening.
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.
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.
So, another day, another blog post that is uploaded late.
I would go to bed, but it’s the weekend and I have a lot of energy.
Might binge watch something on Netflix and write a bit of poetic material.
Feeling quite inspired, although I feel a bit strange after eating some junk food yesterday evening. Can’t wait to get back to my health based journey, which is right now. I’ve tried to reassure myself that it’s okay to have a cheat day once in a while.
Anyway, I do hope everyone is staying safe and well.
Have a wonderful weekend and take care.
Going to write a quick post for today.
Hope you all have a great evening.
The next write will be a longer one, I’m sure. Until then, I’ll stay off the web for now.
Take care, stay safe and be kind.
