Motivational Friday

As I begin to feel better, motivation seems more present than ever. And honestly, that’s what I needed.

It’s an ongoing process, and every day will be different. Although, trying to be more on the mindful side of things can be so beneficial.

Taking a moment to have gratitude, empathy towards yourself and this journey of life that you’re on.

It truly is the little, finer details in life.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

First Day Of 26

One of the best things about celebrating birthdays as an adult is not presents, although any you receive are always appreciated – at least by most.

What I truly love the most is, the people you get to spend time with, the joy in the room. The last year or so has impacted a lot of people’s lives, mentally, emotionally and physically. And my heart goes out to all of those who have lost loved ones and continue to navigate life in these strange and difficult times.

So grateful for the birthday wishes yesterday, and any belated ones I might receive in the days to come.

Bank Holiday weekend is here and I hope you all have a wonderful Friday.

God bless you all and stay safe.

Clean Slate For A New Day

Another one of those nights where I seem to stay up writing in the last minute because not doing so would feel absurd.

Today’s blog entry might be a little short and more spontaneous, but I’m working on it as we speak.

Almost midnight, yet I’m finding it difficult to hibernate for the night. I’ll sleep soon, I promise.

The day has been relatively balanced, with hints of anxiety here and there, in which my inner response was: I had to simply concentrate on other things.

A clean slate for a new day, I tell myself.

My birthday is in two days, almost one if I think about it. It’s a strange feeling, getting older. You learn a lot, or at least in my own experiences.

The more my blog grows and blossoms, I can’t help but feel immense gratitude for the ones who have supported me along the way. It shows me that I’m doing something right, despite how small the achievement might look like currently.

So thank you, for being such a light in my life. And as always, have a beautiful day, or night, depending on where you are in the world.

Sixth Anniversary Of The Blog

Today is the sixth anniversary of my beautiful, little sanctuary on this side of the internet. To say that my blog means the world to me would be a complete understatement. And to think that it has been a part of my life since I was 19 is emotional, to say the very least.

DAYDREAM MADNESS was the beginning of a long and complicated journey, it was created before I started independently publishing poetry collections, and as I embark on writing for my third, I can’t help but feel an enormous sense of gratitude for how it has shaped my life and who I am as a person today.

It can feel so weird to look back on certain times in life, yet, it is great to see how life has changed for the better.

I look forward to seeing what the future has in store, but until then, I’ll see you on the next post tomorrow. Have a great day!

And again, happy 6th birthday, DAYDREAM MADNESS. I love you.

Productive Days Are Good

This will probably be a short blog entry for the time being, but I’m hoping to get an early start tomorrow morning and write more in depth, as well as get a lot of other things done too.

Can’t believe my birthday is in 16 days, not that I’m counting down, necessarily. Although, it is very strange at times. You’re only as young as you are in this moment, or so I’ve heard over the years.

It would be interesting to know what life would look like in the future, the not knowing part of it all does bother me, until I tend to ask myself this question: Do I really want to know my future?

Yes, and no.

I’m sure a lot of people are possibly curious about this type of thing, right?

It’s natural to think about it as you get older and wiser, life is a journey, after all. And life’s set of scenarios lead us down our own customized path.

Perhaps, it’s not up to us. I keep an open mind and heart when it comes to that, because all I want is peace of mind, above anything else, if I’m being completely blunt.

But to end this post on a positive note, I have learned so much in the last couple of years, and I just hope to keep learning, growing, blossoming into the person I was destined to be at the right time.

Have a great Tuesday and stay well!

Journey Of Acceptance

Do you ever hear or see something that leaves you in a deep train of thought for the rest of the evening? That’s so me tonight.

I think I’ve managed to navigate my emotions to a happier place, for the time being. How long that will last, who knows, but I appreciate it and try to embrace it.

Emotions can be so complex and hard to navigate, process and understand in a logical way. Truth be told, that has been me many times.

As I’m getting older, the appreciation for my strength during the darkest of times has only increased. It reminds me that life is a journey, and healing of any kind takes a lot of patience.

Wasn’t planning to talk about this, but I felt compelled to.

All I can say is: take your time, it’ll get better.

That’s all for today, stay safe.

Late Evening Thoughts

A nice day, yet entirely exhausting and having a migraine earlier was not very fun either.

I was planning to write more and do certain things in particular, but on days like this, you have to structure it slightly different.

Overall, the day was great, I just wish time didn’t go by so quick. Before you know it, the week is over and a new one is about to begin.

Hopefully, you’ve had a good day too.

Take care, be kind to you and others.
