Motivation On The Horizon



Sundays honestly is my favorite day of the week. I don’t know if that makes me feel good about life, or just old? Also, the aftermath of eating junk food over two days was a lot. I actually don’t miss it at all, which is quite a new thing for me.

But, that’s just my thoughts regarding that. It does confirm to me that I feel much better eating meals that I cook from scratch, and it also saves me a lot of money in the long run, so that’s another positive way of encouraging myself to stay on track with my change of lifestyle and overall health journey.

I prefer to not call it a diet, because that can bring out some lingering insecurities of mine. All I can say is, I’m working on it. Moderation is key, so is a balanced lifestyle and understanding the importance of nutrition.

It’ll take time, but the end result will make all of this worth my while.

This past month or so has been a real eye-opener.

It’s February 1st tomorrow, which is really hard to believe, but time doesn’t stand still for anyone. Spent a lot of time reflecting and moving ahead and I look forward to this next month.

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday, stay safe.

The Writing Streak Continues

An early addition, for me anyway.


Hello readers, bloggers and human beings.

Found it a little difficult knowing what to write, but I want to keep this streak of writing alive for the time being. After all, this is a personal blog.

I’ve been meaning to start work on my next book of poetry, although it’s still a work in progress. A lot is going on, but I’m feeling positive so far.

Focusing on my health is a priority at the moment, as well as other things alongside that. I am determined to stick to my resolutions this year, in a healthy and gradual way. I try not to call it ‘dieting’ as it can trigger unhealthy eating habits.

Being the impatient young woman I am, it can feel like this whole process is taking a long time, yet I do understand that it’s not an overnight change.

Anyway, I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.

Stay safe, take care, be kind.

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.

Weekend Motivation



Having the willpower to stay on track with exercise and eating well seems a lot more difficult during the weekends. I do enjoy working out, aerobic dance is fun, wireless earbuds have been one of the best purchases that I made in 2020.

I did plan to get another hour of exercise in before the end of today, but I already did 30 minutes and that was a good start. Incorporating that into my routine each day is something that I’m still working on, but the gradual weight loss has been very encouraging to witness.

During this lockdown, I’ve really been interested in fitness and overall health in general, which has been an interesting journey by all means.

The end goal has always been to become healthier, in a gradual, healthy way and I honestly do believe it’ll be worth it in the end. Patience is difficult, I am the most impatient person on this planet.

Positive affirmations help too, keeping track of your progress and just knowing that these things take time, there is no transformation overnight.

Remembering to be kind to yourself is important, I know I’ve had my fair share of insecurities. It’s always so wonderful seeing others be body positive, and it reminds me that I’ll get there too, eventually.

Getting older, you feel more comfortable in your skin, and that’s very accurate to some extent. It can be such a complex subject, especially in today’s society.

Regardless, I’m proud of my progress so far, and it’s nice to feel good about yourself. When I reflect back to how teenage me felt, I just wish I could tell her that things will be okay.

Anyway, excuse the long essay on here. Stay safe & well.

Different Day, Same Goals


Productivity continues to thrive and that’s been the highlight of my week.

As far as other things go, I’m not too sure. The next week is going to be a busy one, which should be good for the most part. Feeling positive, enlightened to some extent too.

Just very focused on what I want to achieve, despite the complexity of circumstances surrounding everyday life and beyond. All you can do is try and move forward, no matter what.

Writing every day has been so comforting to me, it really helps a lot if you think a lot like me. My brain never seems to completely at peace with life, but I don’t mind a challenge.

Over the weekend, I do hope to begin writing for the next book. I have a clear idea of what I want the project to express, but it’s all a work in progress. There’s so many ideas I have right now, I need to narrow it down to a few, if at all possible.

We’ll see if I’m feeling inspired enough tomorrow! 🙂
