Cleaning Mode

Found myself in organizational/cleaning mode for most of the day and I’m kind of glad.

I just love those days of productivity and motivation. To think we’re halfway through April is so strange to think about.

Next month is my birthday, and also the 6th anniversary of this beautiful space on the internet. There’s a lot of stuff coming up on the calendar, some good, some less than that.

Although, for the most part, remaining positive is the main objective right now. Things are great though, changing my hair has also been so therapeutic and beneficial.

Think I’ll go to sleep soon, have a wonderful day.

Thoughts: Improved Blog Schedule

A more consistent blogging schedule is what I am aiming for, in the long run.

I do find myself struggling at times, whether it’s with blog post ideas, diverse concepts and other various writing related issues. However, not all days are like this, inspiration does occur, although not as often as I would like it to.

Writing more can be a little tricky, if you’ve got creative blocks, or just a lack of inspiration in general.

Self-expression is such a wonderful outlet, it makes me feel better, writing stuff down helps declutter my mind, it keeps my thoughts balanced, for the most part.

Don’t be afraid to talk about your emotions, that’s all I’m saying.

Decluttering Is Wonderful

Organizing the house can be so good, especially when you have a break from other things in life.

As much as I love sleep, relaxing and not doing much, I definitely have days where all I do is clean the house, wash the dishes, vacuum all the rooms. Things like that do bring me a lot of joy, it’s also beneficial for my mental health on days where motivating myself is just difficult.

Finding a good balance helps. It’s not always easy, but in time, you can do it.

Each journey of life is different, might I add. As always, I only speak for myself, and sharing my experiences and thoughts is comforting, very therapeutic too. That being said, I’ll end this post here.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great day.

Hello Again, April

It’s April 1st and today is not any different, in my opinion.

The only fun part is the 4 day weekend, but it would have been more entertaining if current circumstances weren’t happening, I’m sure.

Hard to believe my birthday is next month, it doesn’t feel like it at all.

Time went by so quick, I often wonder if it’s just me thinking so or something else. Another month is here, nonetheless. The weather has been wonderful here, so that’s a positive.

Been in such an organizing mood recently, it’s just a shame certain furniture can be so expensive. I’m not picky, but I enjoy various aesthetics, whilst sticking to affordable prices. The more deals and ways to save money, the better.

Since the beginning of 2021, I’ve been so into saving money and tried to better with money as a whole.

That aside, I’m ready for the weekend to begin. Bring it on.

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.

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!

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.

Inspiration In Drafts


Looked at old notes earlier, that I previously wrote and saved to my phone and it’s kind of bittersweet. It’s not very often that I do that, mainly because I end up missing certain people.

Nostalgia is tough sometimes, some memories leave a lasting impression on your mind. Whether that’s good or bad, I don’t know.

Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all. That’s something I was told a while back, and it’s very true, at least for me.

Although, I do wish I had been slightly more mature than I was years ago, maybe it would have changed how things turned out. The “what if” still haunts me to this day.

Earlier tonight, I found myself wanting to reach out to someone in particular, who I haven’t spoken to in about three years, and a part of me has always wanted that person back in my life.

They were one of my closest friends, we had a complicated connection from the start, but I’ve always been curious about how things would be now, if we had remained close, especially since we’re both older and wiser.

Perhaps, in the near future, we’ll be able to reconnect.

Time definitely heals a lot, but not everything, as much as we would like for that to be reality. I feel like I’m starting to lose my train of thought now, so maybe I should leave it at this for the moment.

Need to get some sleep, but I’ll be back with another post tomorrow afternoon or late evening. Tomorrow is Friday, so glad.

Have a wonderful rest of your Thursday.

Brighter Days


To say I appreciate the better, brighter days of life would be an understatement. There’s a lot of gratitude involved, especially if you’ve been through a lot and so, you appreciate every ounce of good that comes your way.

All I want is peace of mind, to be completely honest with you.

It’s hard to know what the future will hold, but I’m trying to just take life one day at a time, because you can’t predict what will happen in the next.

As someone who feels better when I have some kind of vague idea of what a day will be like, that can be difficult. However, there’s nothing wrong with that at all.

Is life going to be predictable? Well, depending on the circumstances and events, it could be, or it could be the complete opposite.

That’s probably a permanent note to self: take it as it comes.

As challenging as that can be, I try to not let fear take the steering wheel, if that makes sense?

This post was meant to be written way earlier, so excuse the late ramblings from yours truly. I also need to get some rest before tomorrow, got a lot of revision and study to complete in the next week.

Hope you’re well and speak to you tomorrow!

Habits & Resolutions: A Step Back

In the last week or two, I’ve found myself less motivated. It didn’t all happen at once, but it was a gradual process. For the most part, it’s been helpful to try and do a few productive tasks each day, at the very least.

However, it has become increasingly more difficult in recent days, despite my best efforts. I suppose, I was expecting it to occur at some point, I just didn’t want to lose all the progress made since the start of 2021.

The fact that it’s March is surreal. Perhaps lockdown has made time feel differently for many people, or has it just flown by? Who knows, hopefully things will become better as time does go on and so forth.

In a couple of months, it’ll be five years since my grandmother passed away and I just don’t know how to feel about it anymore. How five years can go by just like that is scary. Losing her was one of the hardest things I’ve ever experienced, amongst other things.

Things have definitely changed a lot since then, some things at least, not everything. Life is one of those complicated journeys, but that’s all part of the human experience and how that shapes us as people.

Sometimes, I often have to take a step back, have a moment of reflective thought, give myself a chance to live in the moment, not putting so much emphasis on stressing about the future. It is easier said than done.

Giving yourself that break once in a while is essential, at least in my own experience. Writing also helps me a lot, keeping that open dialogue with yourself and others, depending on how comfortable you are, of course.

I believe I’ll leave it at that for now, trying to figure out possible subjects and topics to discuss in the next coming days. Also, forever wishing I could write stories. Would love to complete a novel in my later years, we’ll see.
