Today has felt like the longest day.
I don’t know what it is about Mondays, but it’s something else.
Was planning to write a longer post tonight, but I’ll leave it for tomorrow instead. The first day of the new week is always so long and exhausting for my brain.
For now, I will keep the post short and sweet.
Another week ahead of us, and I genuinely have used today as a time to recharge my batteries (well, mind)
Sundays will always be a personal favorite of mine, I just enjoy the peace of mind it brings to the day. I was surprisingly productive, which is a positive thing for me.
Leaving this post quite short because I’m going to write something more lengthy tomorrow. Well, I am hoping to. And I also need to sleep because I’ve got a lot to do.
Take care and have a wonderful Sunday.
For as long as I can remember, I loved self-expression and it only got stronger with time.
Creativity is an outlet, a fortress of wonder and discovery.
That’s what inspired me to create this blog, as well as my two collections of poetry too. Working on the next book is going to be a long journey of complex emotions.
But, on a positive note, I hope you all have a great Saturday.
Over the years, a lot has changed and evolved. But at the same time, it is not entirely different.
Maturity and wisdom has definitely helped shape my current mindset, as well as providing me with the necessary tools to navigate my path, help me understand and come to terms with things that I didn’t have the words for before, or the feelings and emotions that have found their way through this journey of life.
Looking back, being kind to myself was the last thing on the agenda, if at all important. Insecurities were heavily on my mind, they still are at times. Learning how to combat those hasn’t been easy.
Even now, despite being more at peace with myself, there are days where I think too much, or I don’t feel any particular way or it’s harder to articulate, and that’s okay.
So, in the years since I’ve focused on my wellbeing a lot more, and had time to reflect, what have I grown to love or embrace about life or myself?
This is an interesting question indeed.
In fact, there’s quite a substantial list. For example, I love having my hair up, which is a small detail to some, but having a rounder face can make it complicated.
Also, another thing I’ve grown to love is short hair, or perhaps shoulder-length hair in particular. Growing up, I truly think I used my hair to hide my face and how round I thought it was. Once, I had a very evident bleach fail, where a lot of it broke off, so I cut off a lot of hair at the sides and dyed it electric blue. At the time, I didn’t appreciate it as much as I should have.
Would I dye my hair blue again? Absolutely.
Another thing I love now, is wearing no make-up. If my face has problems, I try and help/ease them with skincare, following a routine has done wonders, although I am more flexible with that these days.
Getting older has definitely helped me embrace my flaws, and to be grateful for my health and so much more. This will always be a journey, and I just want to be the best version of myself.
This post is longer than I usually write, but in my opinion, that means I’m feeling inspired and motivated, so I’ll take it.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
Despite the initial idea of wanting to write longer posts and such things, I honestly feel too exhausted for it. Sometimes, you just have to slow down for the sake of rest.
Found myself listening to podcasts a lot, I also really want to start reading books more. Might watch a movie tonight, honestly. Self-care is such an important part of my routine these days.
Anyway, I might add to this at a later date, but for now, I’ll probably just lay in bed and take my mind off some things. Have a wonderful evening.
Wasn’t planning to write a blog post so late, but here we are, once again.
There was a lot of things I didn’t necessarily get done to the best of my ability, however, I did have a balanced day. Doesn’t always happen, yet I do try and appreciate all the good moments in life.
Learning how to stay mindful and being kind to myself, it has been such a long journey and I’m still learning new things every day, which is interesting at times.
Going to start scheduling posts in advance from either tomorrow or the start of next week. It might inspire me to work on my new book more too, we’ll see.
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.
Surprisingly great start to the week, minus the headaches that come and go these days.
Hoping it stays like this, at least for a bit. Positive and bright days like this are so appreciated.
I finally get my new exercise weights tomorrow, which is great because I ordered them like, two weeks ago. Going to try and schedule future posts in advance so I can keep the blog more organized.
Would also like to go through every old post on here and tweak them a little, perhaps change the layout/theme and a few other things as well.
I keep saying I will, but somehow, I forget or I don’t have the energy for it.
Regardless, have a wonderful day/evening wherever you are.
After some needed rest, time to eat and unwind, I wanted to get on the blog and talk for a minute.
Writing late wasn’t what I had in mind for today, but at least I am writing.
I truly wish the weekend would last longer, it feels so short.
Sunday has still been good, cooking and gathering my thoughts ahead of the new week starting.
Got hair lightener in my hair currently, so going to bed is probably not going to happen anytime soon.
Been so nostalgic from music too, heard songs that reminded me of better times, a different space.
Listening to songs that you haven’t heard in years can be so bittersweet.
It’s even worse when it reminds you of people you don’t speak to anymore, and the places you used to live.
All that aside, life is a journey.
Have a good Sunday.
The beauty of small things that bring you a little bit of joy, and how precious it is.
It makes you appreciate your life, your hobbies, the sun in the sky and each day of your existence.
Not every day is easy, not every day is hard. Balance is key, for the most part. Over time, strength develops.
