Melancholy Nights

It’s one of those nights, once again.

Emotions can be complicated, it can also be a difficult thing to talk about when you’re overwhelmed as it is. However, in some ironic way, sometimes that’s the only way I can write. And it’s important to not suppress how you feel either.

I’m currently in the process of writing for the next poetry book, although at this point, when this will be unveiled or released, not too sure.

However, despite feeling less than ideal, I wanted to come on here and just distract myself from my thoughts for a moment. Writing has always been such a good outlet, in many ways.

Anyway, I’ll probably end the post at this for now, until tomorrow.

Take care, stay safe, be kind to yourself and others.

Impulsive Moments & Rational Conclusions

Sometimes, taking a moment to think before we do or say something is the difference between wrong and right choices in life. At times, I can find myself being impulsive, in terms of buying certain things or making a change somehow (hair bleach sessions included)

Almost bleached my hair earlier, funnily enough. Until I styled my hair in a different way, which made me appreciate my brunette, messy curls. Tomorrow is Easter Sunday, so I’m looking forward to that.

Faith is such a big part of my daily life, more so with each day that passes by. Makes me so grateful for the people in my life and the positive changes that have occurred in recent years. And I also believe it keeps me close to my late grandmother. In May, it’ll be the fifth anniversary of her passing and that’s so surreal.

I just hope I make her proud, on this complicated journey of life and experiences.

Long Weekend

Happy Friday, to all of you. I hope it’s been a good start to your weekend.

Found myself taking naps a lot during the day, I felt like it was needed, and now here I am, making another late night addition to the blog. This has been such a wonderful Friday, a good one indeed.

As it’s Good Friday, I definitely wanted to spend some time reflecting, nurturing my mind and soul with mindful thinking and it’s very beneficial, in a lot of ways.

I feel so blessed to have my family and friends in my life, they are the most important people ever, when things change and we can see each other again, in a more consistent way, things will definitely improve for the better.

Journey Of Complex Emotions


A simple note to self: it’s okay to feel emotive.

I’ve found it difficult at times to express how I feel, even through my poetry and such. An outlet of any kind is a blessing, it’s not something I take for granted anymore.

Sometimes, a good cry or laugh is necessary.

Can’t wait to start writing more for book #3, it’s been pushed aside for too long, in my opinion. There’s a lot of comfort in creativity in the form of escapism and peace of mind.

Anyway, I’ll leave the rambling for another moment in time, for now, I’ve got to fall asleep in a timely manner. Hope you’re all safe and well.

Nostalgic Feelings


It’s such a strange feeling to miss people that you don’t talk to anymore.

Nostalgia is a bittersweet thing at times, but overall, I appreciate the ones I’ve known, and the people that I have yet to meet in life.

Getting older has taught me a lot about past experiences, and I think that has also changed my perspective on things in the current day.

Tonight’s post might not be as in-depth as the previous one, but maybe the next ones over the week will be a little bit more interesting.

I’m hoping to work on the next book of poetry soon, so fingers crossed.

Anyway, I need to get some rest, if I can sleep at all.

Inspired Wednesday


Despite a late start to the day, I completed what I had to do, and that was good enough for me. The cold weather doesn’t really help either, especially in the last week.

I might have been born in a cold place, but I’m not too fond of it.

For the first years of my life, I was born and raised in Scandinavia (Northern Sweden to be exact)

Anyway, I’ve always been proud of my background, and it’s an important part of my identity, who I am. As well as the experiences that have shaped me into the current version of myself.

I think I’m beginning to ramble now, ever so slightly.

Think it’s time to sleep soon, since I stayed awake a bit too late the previous night. Stay safe and stay warm this evening.

Life Lesson: Bittersweet Outcomes



As much as I am grateful for life as it is today, I can’t help but wonder about what could have been in another outcome of events. I know, it’s kind of ridiculous at this point.

But sometimes, your mind just wants to know.

When you have to discuss certain parts of your life, I suppose the curious side of you emerges.

I’ve learned a lot about my past over the last few years or so. Suppressing your feelings about it is a temporary solution. Such a complex journey, yet I do believe that I have found closure as a result.

We can’t change our pasts, unfortunately. As tough as that is for someone like me in moments like this, all I can do is acknowledge it, process it to the best of my ability and accept it.

That’s easier said than done, ultimately.

As I get older, I do hope that things start to make a little more sense.

Well, maybe I’ll write a book about it, or perhaps a novel of some kind. That’s something I hope to do in my later years. We’ll see if it happens.


Stay safe, and I hope you all have a wonderful evening.

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.

Sunday Reflection



Despite not being too productive, I still feel like this day was somewhat decent. This will probably be a short posting of mine, but the next will certainly be more in-depth and filled with information.

At some point, I do want to start preparing drafts in advance so I don’t end up rushing out blog posts on here. Although, I do enjoy the sound of a busy keyboard.

Told myself to go to bed early, and yet here I am, writing close to midnight.

Going to put my alarms on, so I don’t wake up late. Tomorrow’s post will be more eventful than this one, I’m sure. Until then, stay safe everyone.

Last Day Of 24, Hello 25!

Hello again, blogging universe.

I am finally back with a new blog post, after what feels like a lifetime of not being able to express my thoughts out in the open.

It’s less than an hour until midnight, and my birthday is around the corner. Yes, the big 2-5. I know, not as special as someone’s 21st or 30th and so forth, but I wanted to get back into writing again, and tonight felt like the right time to do so.

To say that I have been creatively blocked is an understatement. In fact, I have found it increasingly difficult to express myself in the written form.

To whoever reads my post, thank you for sticking around. I plan to make an effort in the months to come. My third poetry book is still a work in progress, I’m working on a lot of things at the moment, much of it has to do with learning to find balance and peace.

But, as I’m sure most poeple know, it can be hard. The older I get, the more I have gratitude for the small things that make life so wonderful. The good, bad and ugly.

With time, you definitely learn to see things from a different perspective, the clarity can be very bittersweet at times, but that’s a part of our journey.

I am so grateful for the people who are in my life at this moment. You are truly magnificent.

Anyway, excuse my rambling on. I’m just thrilled to be here. My beloved blog recently turned 5, on the 13th of May and I often find it strange how fast time has gone by.

I’ll end this post by saying: take care of yourself, and have a wonderful day/night.
