Complexity Of Being Human

I wanted to dedicate this post to my loved ones, because today’s events have really highlighted the importance of gratitude, appreciating the people we know, the memories we have, the time we spend on this Earth.

So incredibly grateful for my faith too, it really keeps me humble, and it brings comfort to my heart in times of anxiety and stress. Bear in mind, this is my own personal experience with religion, and of course, every person’s life experiences are different, we have our individual paths, journeys, ways of coping and all else.

Felt compelled to get my emotions out tonight, it’s been a long day and heavily emotive. I have a lot to say, not everything leaves the draft section of my mind or the notes on my phone, but sharing my thoughts in moments like these, it makes me feel better.

Over the years, I definitely have tried to become a better version of myself, to learn and grow from the past. Each day is different, there’s good days and bad days, as well as all of those in-between.

Learning how to manage and balance all of this is tricky sometimes, that’s the complexity of being human. So, to conclude this post, feel free to share your own feelings and thoughts, let me know what’s going on in your life and what you’re grateful for. God bless you all.

A Little Poem: Peace Of Mind

All these emotions, running through your mind

When all you want is peace

For healing to set your mind free

And love to bring light

All these thoughts, of which you’ve been consumed

When all you wanted was to feel safe

For time to heal your heart

And the sun to shine on you

Thursday Thoughts

Another late addition to the blog, but I’m here now and that’s all that matters for the time being. Honestly tired, got a slight headache so I can’t wait to sleep tonight.

Not much to say, to be honest. Most days feel like the same one on repeat for the most part. Going to cook tomorrow, which I’m looking forward to, amongst other things.

That’s as creative as my mind will be at this point, hard to believe March is ending in a week and April is around the corner, literally. What a strange feeling.

Going to leave this post at that, I might add things into this later on, but we’ll see. Take care.

Less Productive Days

Despite the lack of productivity, it has been a wonderful and quiet day.

Going to bed shortly, and I probably should have written earlier, although knowing what to say can be difficult. I hope my creativity returns on a more consistent level, it definitely helps when it comes to encouraging inspiration and future ideas.

We’ll see what happens in the coming days. Until then, I’ll try and just take one day at a time. Its okay to have days where you don’t get as much done as you would like.

Take care, stay safe, be kind and have a great evening.

On The List: Poetry And Sleep

Either I’m getting old or I just really want to sleep early for once. Although, I might end up listening to a podcast episode or two. That and chilled out music can make any evening perfect.

I’ve been exploring book cover ideas for poetry book #3 and I truly believe I have a good idea of what it should look like, so that’s always an interesting development.

Found myself struggling to write much in the last few days, so writing on the blog can help me get out of that creative block, if that makes sense.

Not always, might I add. Having patience can be tough, I’ll get there eventually. It feels like time is passing by so quickly though, it’s scary.

Also, my birthday is in the next few months, like how?

I have no idea if I’ll be able to do anything, might just relax at home on the day. Hard to believe how close I am to the end of my twenties.

As much as getting older is a great thing and should be embraced more, it is slightly bittersweet because we know life doesn’t last forever. Which is why we should appreciate each day, regardless of the struggles we have faced or continue to face.

Late Night Rambles

Being the midnight owl I am, there’s something about writing at night that is so relaxing and it puts my mind at ease. Inspiration strikes at strange times of the day.

Not been particularly inspired to write much this weekend, but I believe the best thing is to just be patient. I have a feeling I’ll be awake for quite some time because I fell asleep in the afternoon, typical me.

Saturday is almost over, unfortunately. It feels like it just started as well.

Tomorrow is laundry day, amongst other things, before the new week begins once more. Can you believe it’s Easter soon? I cannot.

It’s almost midnight here as I write this, how crazy. Got a few things to do before I eventually go to bed, yet I’m wide awake and alert.

A longer ramble than most, perhaps. There’s not many intriguing topics to discuss because of how predictable things have gotten in the last year.

We’ll see what the future has in store, right? Stay kind & aware.

Embracing Life In The Moment

Slightly nervous about tomorrow, although I am trying to remain hopeful despite all these emotions going on. Patience can be a complex thing.

I honestly feel so good today, though. Lovely food, incredibly productive with my household chores and cleaned the entire house (literally)

This might be a small thing to some, but for me, I appreciate all the accomplishments and achievements of the day, no matter how big or small they might be.

Going to bed shortly after posting this, should have studied more than I have, and I just hope that doesn’t impact my progress. For the most part, I’ve worked hard on a lot, which is not always possible due to many reasons and it depends on the day and how I feel.

Part of me wants to return to listening on 7cups (anonymous website/platform where you can reach out to someone etc) and it’s been on my mind quite often in the last few weeks. On the weekend, I’m definitely going to log in and check what’s new on there.

Anyway, enough of me rambling on. Have a wonderful evening!

Challenging Emotions

Some things are easier to feel, process and deal with than others are.

It truly makes you appreciate little things: sunshine, the presence of a clear sky, long walks, listening to your favorite song, out of the blue inspiration.

Could list many more, but let’s start with those for now.

Emotions can be complicated, learning what ultimately helps can be a bit tricky. Self-care is so important too, taking the time to be patient with yourself, as hard as that can be.

Revision Evenings

Got a mock exam on the 19th, so I’m quite nervous to see my progress on this level 2 course. However, I am determined to revise a whole lot and get my mind prepared for this.

No matter how prepared I am, a part of me is always stressed when it comes to things like this. It’ll be fine, I’m sure. One day at a time for the most part, and remembering that as long as you try your best, it will be okay.

Going to bed early tonight, which I say all the time, but I need all the rest I can get right now. Hoping to wake up before 7 in the morning, fingers crossed. I have an online math webinar to pay attention to at 11am tomorrow, so it would be great to have some extra study time.

Anyway, I believe that’s all I really wanted to say on today’s post, more poetry related topics will be posted in the next week or so, so stay tuned for that.

Take care and stay safe and I hope all is well with you.

A Tough Exterior


It’s still strange to me that we’re halfway through March already, I feel like 2021 beginning was only a minute ago. Time is weird, or maybe it’s lack of social interaction.

Saturday is almost over, yet again. I wrote down a lot of potential titles of poems, words here and there. Not sure what I’ll make out of that, but I’m not in a rush.

Keeping the blog active has been great, it does help me often in terms of any potential creative blocks etc. Inspiration happens in the most unexpected ways, in my opinion.

Would love to experiment with book cover ideas soon, see if I can come up with some good concepts, layouts. Motivation comes and goes, some days are more productive than others. I struggle to be patient with myself sometimes.

Being keen on self-expression yet being so introverted, is a strange thing to combine and balance out. Hopefully, future me will have it figured out at some point in life.

There is so much to process, learn from and experience still. Who knows what life will look like in 5 years, or even 10 years.

Such a bittersweet, yet rewarding journey in the long run.
