Hello 2022: Happy New Year!

As the title says, 2022 is finally here.

Happy New Year to all of you, WordPressers!

I look forward to a year of consistent uploads, and I am sure you do too.

Made a promise to myself that 2022 would be the year that I focus on writing more, I also want to be more present on social media as well, and I am hoping to make some changes to DAYDREAM MADNESS in terms of layout, change things up a bit, so definitely stay tuned for that over the next few months or so.

Starting work on poetry book #3 is also going to be a priority this year, it has been almost 4 years since my last project was created, so this is long overdue, in my opinion.

I can honestly not believe it has been so long since Lay Your Hands Bare (2017) & A Cryptic Human Entity (2018) were made public for the first time.

With each collection, I want to challenge myself and learn to express my emotions and thoughts in a balanced way, especially the ones that are attached to trauma.

I have a long way to go until the healing process is anywhere near complete, or accomplished in some way, shall we say. I am very grateful for the wisdom and clarity that has been brought into my life in the last few years.

Getting older has taught me so much about myself, as well as other people and their intentions.

And I just wanted to say thank you for the almost 500 followers I’ve managed to get on here since 2015, it truly means the world.

Despite the inconsistencies and hiatuses, you’ve always given me a reason to stick with the blog, regardless of how much or little I might post.

Being an introvert, it can be tricky knowing how to step outside the box for once. It can be awkward a lot of the time, truthfully.

But writing is therapy, it is an outlet for those very difficult thoughts and feelings. I’m not planning to share everything about my life, but I do want to be more open and confident in myself.

Insecurities can get the best of you sometimes, I know that all too well.

So, be kind to yourself and others, take one day at a time and just know that life is a complex journey, but it’ll be okay. You will be okay, no matter how tough it might be right now.


Love,

Mila. Xo


Another Day, Another Late Blog Post



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.

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.

Snow Days In January




The weather is really cold these days, and now there’s snow.

January has been such a weird month, like many of the previous ones in the last year or so. As much as I don’t mind cold days or nights, it still manages to get on my last nerve sometimes.

It can also make it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings too, having to wear many layers around the house is interesting, I do keep the heating on a lot, but with that being so expensive, as it can be for many people, I try and keep it on mainly at night.

So glad I have my fleece blanket, as well as my normal duvet. I am thinking of getting more winter type bedding and things like that, but I’m really prioritizing other bills and expenses.

Got a lot of math study to catch up on, which I’ll probably do some of it tomorrow morning. I am determined to wake up early, plus I enjoy cleaning the house. It’s very therapeutic, comforting and I count it as exercise, depending on the household chores I do over the course of the day.

Another thing I also love beyond words is cooking. I could spend hours upon hours making dishes from scratch, it’s something I hope to do more of as well, sometimes there’s not a lot of time and you just want something quick and simple, that’s pretty great too.

Anyway, long story short, I’m off to bed soon. Take care and stay safe!

Productive January



Less than a week into January, and I feel pretty good so far.

Fingers crossed that my next online course can happen this week.
If someone told me I’d be loving the complexity of mathematics, there’s a chance I would have laughed.

Who’d have thought a customer service course would be such a blessing in disguise. Anyway, I have a lot of revision to do, nonetheless.

December was such a busy month in general, so I’m excited to get back to basics with my routine and hopefully sort out my sleep schedule whilst I’m at it.

I think I’ll spend tomorrow decluttering the house, completing some household chores. Despite lockdown and the unpredictable chaos, this time around it feels different, or perhaps my mindset has improved a lot since last year. Feeling more like myself every day and I am so grateful.
