Tuesday Motivation



Here I am, trying to finish my bottles of water needed, in order to complete my intake goal. Also recently started intermittent fasting, so the hydration is very important during these vital hours.

Working on my health has been a priority, and it will continue to be on the agenda as the year goes on, and I become fitter and healthier, not to mention, more confident with my body.

Insecurities suck, but I’m trying to work on those things gradually, understand what has to be addressed and improved. It’s not just the physical aspect, but the psychological as well. It’ll take patience with myself, something I often don’t have.

A sensitive topic for many, I’m sure. To be clear, I’m simply expressing my own experiences with it, but the subject can be complicated for many different reasons. The stigma, the shaming, the unrealistic standards we deal with on a regular basis. It can be a lot for a person.

As we evolve and grow, become wiser and stronger, I am certain that these things will be more understood as time goes on. Hold on to that hope.

Weekend Blues



Yet again, the weekend comes to an end.


I’m going to try my best to get some sleep. On a positive note, today has been really good. I am hoping this will continue as the new week begins tomorrow.

We’re almost two weeks into January, how crazy is that?

Hope everyone has a wonderful day/evening and I’ll speak to you soon, on the next blog post on DAYDREAM MADNESS. I’ll try and post the next one earlier than all the others posted this week.

For some reason, I prefer writing late at night. It’s a preference until I have like 30 minutes until midnight to get a post up on the site. Oh, the stress.

Gratitude For The Finer Details



This week has been challenging and humbling, to say the least.


If there’s anything I take away from this, it’s that when life gives you lemons, either make lemonade or remain bitter. It can be tough seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, when it seems like things are heading towards one direction, and not the one you were hoping for.

Grateful in this moment for family, friends, and the ability to see beyond the lines, and also read between them when necessary too.

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.

Living In The Now For A While

So good to finally be updating DAYDREAM MADNESS yet again…

It’s been more quiet than usual on this blog, but it’s only because I have been on antibiotics since Monday. Not going to lie, the side-effects have been awful at times.

the poetry book project: tbc

So, the book is finally making progress! It’s small steps but I’m positive that it’s going to be of substantial use. As a writer who’s built her confidence from zero, this is a major step to take. I’m sure any writer who is looking to publish for the first time has felt the similar kind of nerves as I.

tiny steps are a start

26771101034_7cd458dc1a_bIt’s those tiny steps of courage that will enlighten you and guide you, which says a lot about the phrase “sometimes less is more”. Any obstacle can be faced if you have the guts to face it in the first place. Perhaps, really; it’s all about those steps. tiny steps are a start.

The Key To Maintaining A Blog

Having a blog is a wonderful opportunity, whether it’s for personal purposes or as part of a growing business/network, as it gives you the platform to express your thoughts, expand your ideas, and the freedom to create content you feel is most appropriate for this particular venture.

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.

a few belated wishes

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to update my blog in a more consistent matter and I have many plans in doing so, so that I can stick with one of my few personal goals for 2o17.
