Preserving Energy

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.

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.

Subtle Changes

Over the next few weeks, I’ve got this vision of changes I want to make, when it comes to the blog. Not entirely sure what these will be at the moment, but it’s good to have subtle changes from time to time, right?

I feel like this is long overdue, we’ll see what occurs shortly as I try and figure all of this out. Anyway, going to bed in a bit, my sleep schedule is very off right now and that needs to be fixed.

Might write in more detail at some point this week, I don’t know yet though.

Have a wonderful evening and I’ll be here tomorrow night, take care.

Thursday Thoughts

Another late addition to the blog, but I’m here now and that’s all that matters for the time being. Honestly tired, got a slight headache so I can’t wait to sleep tonight.

Not much to say, to be honest. Most days feel like the same one on repeat for the most part. Going to cook tomorrow, which I’m looking forward to, amongst other things.

That’s as creative as my mind will be at this point, hard to believe March is ending in a week and April is around the corner, literally. What a strange feeling.

Going to leave this post at that, I might add things into this later on, but we’ll see. Take care.

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.

An Early Night

Going to bed straight after this post, but I wanted to write something this evening. It’s been quite a wonderful Sunday, been very productive and that always makes me feel content.

I’ve got to wake up early tomorrow, which isn’t very fun when you’re not a morning person. However, when important plans are on the horizon, I make an effort to sleep better, most of the time.

Anyway, I’ll write something longer tomorrow, in the evening hours probably. Hope you’re all doing well, take care and stay safe.

Staying Productive Is Hard


To be consistently productive is something I truly want to be, but for the past few days, I’ve been feeling quite the opposite. It might have to do with my overthinking, to some extent. However, it does vary depending on what I have to do on that particular day.

I’ve struggled with feeling anxious for a long time, although over the years, I do think that I have kept it under control for the most part. It all ties together with past trauma, life has always been slightly chaotic.

Getting older and finding peace within yourself definitely helps a lot, but there are moments where I do feel overwhelmed. We all have our good days and bad days.

This is something I’m honest about, always have been. Suppressing how you feel is not healthy, sometimes it is the only way to function properly.
All of these things are complex, but on a positive note, I genuinely feel like I am in a better mindset, overall. Things are not always easy, but nothing ever is.

Outlet For The Mind



A highly productive day, if I do say so myself.

Got everyone by 8pm, which is very rare, as I often get quite distracted from too many tasks at one time. Hoping tomorrow will be equally as rewarding.

I honestly want to start work on the new book project, but I have no idea where to begin. It’s been a while since I created the last collection, so I’m currently stuck on what theme I have in mind.

A part of me wants to stick with the original concept, but I feel like I’ve outgrown the subject matter, in a way.

For some reason, the darker things were easier to express on paper, when no one could see any of it. There’s so much I have left to say, about many things in particular. How I word these feelings will be interesting.

It’s all a work in progress, but I do want this year to be creatively productive and I do want to challenge myself. This comfort zone of mine doesn’t help much.

With poetry, or any kind of writing, there’s a lot to consider.

I’ll probably go into more detail in the next few days or so, but in the meantime, I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe.

Snow Days In January




The weather is really cold these days, and now there’s snow.

January has been such a weird month, like many of the previous ones in the last year or so. As much as I don’t mind cold days or nights, it still manages to get on my last nerve sometimes.

It can also make it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings too, having to wear many layers around the house is interesting, I do keep the heating on a lot, but with that being so expensive, as it can be for many people, I try and keep it on mainly at night.

So glad I have my fleece blanket, as well as my normal duvet. I am thinking of getting more winter type bedding and things like that, but I’m really prioritizing other bills and expenses.

Got a lot of math study to catch up on, which I’ll probably do some of it tomorrow morning. I am determined to wake up early, plus I enjoy cleaning the house. It’s very therapeutic, comforting and I count it as exercise, depending on the household chores I do over the course of the day.

Another thing I also love beyond words is cooking. I could spend hours upon hours making dishes from scratch, it’s something I hope to do more of as well, sometimes there’s not a lot of time and you just want something quick and simple, that’s pretty great too.

Anyway, long story short, I’m off to bed soon. Take care and stay safe!

Reflection Sunday



Sundays are bittersweet. They’re both relaxing and a tiny bit stressful.

For me, it’s been a wonderful day of productivity and I managed to get a lot done in a short amount of time. Tomorrow is going to be slightly different, but I am feeling good about it.

My only goal for tonight is to write this post early (kind of) so I can lay in bed and fingers crossed, sleep before midnight. Spoiler alert, it’s already half past ten and then some.

I need to set my alarms now, so I don’t forget and sleep too long. Might put on some music and drift off to sleep. Fixing my sleep schedule hasn’t been easy, I must admit.

Anyway, I’ll try and keep it short for now, I hope everyone has a good night, or day. Stay safe, take care of yourself and others. Be kind, happy and more.
