Felt more calm recently and I appreciate that a lot, to be honest.
I don’t necessarily handle stress all too well, and it shows, despite how much I try and hide it behind a smile or laugh. These days, the amount of gratitude I have in my heart for each day now is crazy. But, of course, in a good way.
Waking up each day, with clarity and peace of mind, that’s something to feel good about. Positivity despite the chaos life might bring, and the obstacles we have to overcome to see the beacon of hope.
Life is not meant to be easy, I know that. I suppose, it’s human of me to sometimes wish it was.
All in all, there’s a lot of blessings to be thankful for, and even difficult moments, the ones that made me a stronger, wiser, better version of me.
What a chaotic day in the world, to be honest.
Violence is never the answer, and that’s something I truly stand by, in times of great difficulty and turmoil. That being said, there are people with good intentions, and people with bad intentions. Sometimes, it can be hard to distinguish one from the other.
It only shows the true colors of society, humanity as we know it is on thin ice. It’s 2021 and there’s still a lot to accomplish until we can honestly say that change has occurred. Until then, only time will tell what happens next.
At times, I’m glad I often refrain from reading every article out there, all the fear and pain of the world can be a lot to bear on one’s shoulders. Hopefully, as we evolve as human beings, society’s thoughts and views will too.
The toxicity of social media can be very damaging, a limited amount is just enough to go about your daily life. Of course, there are many pros and cons to any platform or website: censorship (we all know there needs to be boundaries but too much is too much), algorithms that are flawed, news that is not always as great as it could be. I could go on, but I’m sure everyone knows what I mean.
I’ve never understood the ones who are submerged in the waters of their online presence. Of course, there are many great things and people that have emerged from the digital world, but there’s also a lot of negativity, unnecessary hatred, bullying, discrimination and lack of equality.
We need more love and kindness in the world. Empathy lacks and so does accountability and gratitude. Tomorrow is never guaranteed, which makes today even more important to appreciate. Better late than never, I say.
I wish all of you nothing but the best and I hope you’re staying safe.
The simplicity of my new blog layout makes it so enjoyable to visit the homepage. I’ve always adored simple designs; the sophisticated, clean look.
For me, it caught my eye from an early age. As I’ve gotten older, it is a constant mission to find new ways to declutter, modify and recycle.
I hope to become better in the near future, doing my part to help the environment. For example, my bedroom is a mess at the moment.
Quite intrigued by interior design, it’s a shame that most things can be so expensive and hard to obtain. Not all things, but the few, particular bits and bobs we find ourselves looking at online, or off.
When people say it can help influence how you feel, they’re not wrong.
From the color of your walls, to the bedding you purchase for your bed, all these things can brighten up your life, at least a little. I’m not particularly keen on magnolia, but it is a warm shade, quite welcoming if I’m honest.
Oh, that’s another of my resolutions for 2021: make the house look more comfy, I also need to take the Christmas tree down, but that’s another story.
There’s a lot of things I’d change, but I’m not in a rush to do so, as of yet.
I wish you all a wonderful day (or evening)
I promised myself that I would update this blog every day in 2020, and I am determined to see it through.
Every thought has a meaning of some kind, I suppose. Always did have a fascination for the mind, and how it works.
For now, I’ll drift off to sleep with dreams in mind. Who knows, maybe I’ll find something.
Take care, have a beautiful evening.
Love, Mila. Xo
Writing for a week straight has really inspired me. I’ve never felt so good about it.
I don’t know where I’d be without my blog. This is my sanctuary, a place of freedom and space.
Living a complex life, it makes you understand the gift of simple things.
Whether it’s writing a poem, or just practicing mindfulness and focusing on your health.
It is so important to acknowledge your struggles, so that you can make room for better things to come.
We have our bad days and our good days. There will be tears, and laughter until our stomach is in knots.
Grateful for family, true friends and the guardian angels I have, watching over me and the ones I love and cherish the most.
Blessed in many ways.
Writing in the darkness of a room has always been my scenery of choice. The patience of thought, gradually expressed. Peace is the word. I am at peace with myself. Solitude does help you sustain it. That echo or a whisper, now simply a memory engraved in the mind.
Flickering moments keep me awake at night. Not because it physically haunts me or takes control. I simply find it lingers, wherever and however it pleases.
Just because things are over to everyone else, doesn’t mean I forget as quickly.
My heart keeps certain people there for longer than the mind perhaps want to admit.
I’m not just a hopeless romantic and an awkward, introverted soul. I am also easily attached. Over the years, it’s become easier to admit and cover up.
People often remind me of what I’ve known for the longest duration ever.
Memories will always matter, and so will the people who inspired them, created them with me.
I might have been foolish with my words, perhaps reckless with all other aspects of life, but in my heart, I’ve always cared deeply.
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.
