Peace Of Mind: Grief And Time

Today is a bittersweet day to write anything, let alone process the emotions that are running through my head at the moment. But, since it is the third anniversary of my grandmother’s passing, I wanted to write something – anything, really.

Just recently, it was also my blog’s 4th year of being active (May 13th), and my domain name was 2 years old on the date also. And then, my second poetry book, A Cryptic Human Entity, that was self-published on May 16th of 2018, which makes it a year and three days old now.

It’s taken me a long time to find the time to sit down and write like I used to.

These past few months have definitely taken a toll on me, and the ones around me. It has been one obstacle after the other. For someone who doesn’t like even the slightest amount of confrontation, this was more troubling than anything else.

A lot has been achieved, however. Things people never thought was possible of me. And I will continue to fight on and move forward.

I truly want to thank the people in my life as of late, for giving me the strength and courage to stare fear in the face and deal with it, firsthand.

Truth be told, I have dealt with my fair share of struggles, and to this day, I still do. We all have our individual issues in life, and that’s reality.

Soon enough, I hope to be writing more consistently and frequently, but for the time being, it’s just not possible.

This blog is my sanctuary, a place I find peace and inspiration. With the help of faith and love, I am sure that things will improve, and I will be able to articulate what my heart is going through, at a later date.

And also, my birthday is later this month, which I look forward to, oddly enough.

I just wish my grandmother was here to see my progress. There’s not a day where I don’t miss her presence. She was one of the most inspiring women I have ever had the chance to know. My heart is still in disbelief over the loss, as if a piece of me was lost on the day she passed on.

But, I know in my heart, that her soul lives on, and her legacy will never be forgotten. She’ll always be with me, and I just hope that I can make her proud from above.

Death might seem like a morbid subject to some, but it is an inevitable fate, that we all will encounter at some point in life, we just don’t know when that will be.

So, live your lives to the fullest. Cherish the people who love you and the ones who don’t love you, embrace them too. Just stay true to yourself and remember, that with each door that closes, another one opens.

Peace and Love,

Mila.

Writing Session #16

Let me start this off by saying a big thank you to the ones who have followed my blog over the years and just know that today is no different. Forever grateful for each and every person. Still hard to believe I’ve reached 200. That’s way more than I ever thought my blog would get.

Milestones And Daily Posts

Just checked my statistics this morning and DAYDREAM MADNESS has reached almost 3,000 views! 2017 has definitely been the most active year of blogging for me personally.

When your stats are on fire, so is your adrenaline levels & inspiration.

It’s only the 5th of August but I’ve already gotten about 200 views this month, a big increase when you think about it. To some people, it may not seem like much but, these days, I am so devoted to this blog because it’s not only an outlet but a way for me to speak beyond the normal ratios of self-expression.

If you’re passionate about writing, the rest usually comes naturally to you.

Creativity is an energy source, if you work yourself to the point of exhaustion, you get nowhere and the levels of inspiration will sink down the drain faster than you can say ”blogging”.

Patience is a virtue. Let your blog grow with time. What is meant to be will be.

Blog-A-Versary & Upgrading Mine

Today has been wonderful to say the least.

And WordPress also reminded me that it’s the second anniversary
of my blog which makes me even more excited to be on here right now.

the first of many milestones

My blog officially has 100 followers! It seems like such a small number to many, but to me, it is the first of many milestones to come. For someone who’s doubted herself for the longest amount of time, I think I’ve done pretty well. Not sure what the future holds for this blog but I do know that I’m grateful for the entirety. A big thank you to the friends who believed in me, the fellow writers and bloggers who have inspired me and strengthened my belief in the written art, thank you. Hopefully, as time goes on and I slowly but surely upgrade it to a more professional standard, it will become a bigger project in the near future. Overall, you’re great.

nearly a milestone

Checked out my stats earlier, and it seems that my blog has reached almost 1k views and 100 followers since I created it in mid-2015. Now, for some people, it seems like a small number but to me, it certainly means a lot more. I never thought anyone would be interested in what I had to say, which makes this even more humbling to witness, nearly two years later.

The 27th of January will always remain close to my heart, for two critical reasons. Even as the years go by, it never fails to keep me grounded, calm and collected, within soul & mind.Continue reading “hours to years: a journey of life”
