Hello 2022: Happy New Year!

As the title says, 2022 is finally here.

Happy New Year to all of you, WordPressers!

I look forward to a year of consistent uploads, and I am sure you do too.

Made a promise to myself that 2022 would be the year that I focus on writing more, I also want to be more present on social media as well, and I am hoping to make some changes to DAYDREAM MADNESS in terms of layout, change things up a bit, so definitely stay tuned for that over the next few months or so.

Starting work on poetry book #3 is also going to be a priority this year, it has been almost 4 years since my last project was created, so this is long overdue, in my opinion.

I can honestly not believe it has been so long since Lay Your Hands Bare (2017) & A Cryptic Human Entity (2018) were made public for the first time.

With each collection, I want to challenge myself and learn to express my emotions and thoughts in a balanced way, especially the ones that are attached to trauma.

I have a long way to go until the healing process is anywhere near complete, or accomplished in some way, shall we say. I am very grateful for the wisdom and clarity that has been brought into my life in the last few years.

Getting older has taught me so much about myself, as well as other people and their intentions.

And I just wanted to say thank you for the almost 500 followers I’ve managed to get on here since 2015, it truly means the world.

Despite the inconsistencies and hiatuses, you’ve always given me a reason to stick with the blog, regardless of how much or little I might post.

Being an introvert, it can be tricky knowing how to step outside the box for once. It can be awkward a lot of the time, truthfully.

But writing is therapy, it is an outlet for those very difficult thoughts and feelings. I’m not planning to share everything about my life, but I do want to be more open and confident in myself.

Insecurities can get the best of you sometimes, I know that all too well.

So, be kind to yourself and others, take one day at a time and just know that life is a complex journey, but it’ll be okay. You will be okay, no matter how tough it might be right now.


Love,

Mila. Xo


Self Care Sunday

Looking after yourself is so important, and that is something that I should make more of a priority in my life.

Today has been very peaceful, I have always loved Sundays. I do wish the weekend could last a bit longer.

Going to try and wake up early tomorrow. It helps me feel better, and starts the day off right.

Being kind to yourself can be so therapeutic and humbling.

A little TLC makes a big difference.

Take care, stay safe and have a great evening.

Tired But Awake

Things to do, no energy but still not able to sleep just yet.

Story of my life these days, it seems.

Frankly, I look forward to the weekend. A time to rest, think less and be more mindful.

Hoping to have an early start tomorrow, to inspire my productivity and energy levels, for that matter.

Have a wonderful evening.

Gratitude List

The week is almost over, and it has certainly been eventful, slightly chaotic and stressful, but still better than the previous two.

Looking forward to the weekend ahead, I can’t wait to rest a lot, eat well and take it easy.

I’ve tried to be more mindful recently, if I’m honest.

Almost midnight here, kind of tired so I might go and sleep shortly.

Have a wonderful evening, everyone.

Monday Thoughts

July is around the corner, literally.

I was going to write earlier in the day, but lost track of time. To be honest, it’s been a long day.

Mondays are always so tiring, as the start of the week usually is.

Hope you all have a great week!
