Heart Full Of Gratitude

December-desktop-wallpaper-1920x1080

 

As many people know, I like to type as I think. That’s what makes this blog so complex and honest, because most of the posts are literally created within 15 minutes or less.

 

 

Depending on the content and editing, of course.

Why December Is THE Month Of All Years

There’s something truly magical about this time of year. We have a wonderful excuse to decorate our houses with everything gold, sparkly and shiny. It’s also another reason to spread some happiness and cheer with the people around us. Whether it’s family, close friends or new companions in life, it’s the memories we create that is of importance, not how long we know the person. But anyway, I’m excited for the remainder of 2017. I’ll likely cherish every moment, because I know it’s coming to an end soon, and it’s been quite a vital year for me, in terms of self-growth, independence, inner strength, love, and most of all: Happiness.

It’s been a little quiet on my blog and I’m sorry about that. Haven’t really had the time to post stuff on here, so it’s definitely not intentional. Also, I worked on a keepsake journal for most of October and November, which is in production right now, I’m really pleased about that. It’s not going to be listed for sale, I mainly just wanted to create something that is me and is my own little place to write down thoughts, I also included brand new poetry within this project, motivational pieces, and of course, some inspirational words of wisdom and clarity. It’s the journal for the journey, as I like to say.

 

It’s hard to believe I’ve now self-published two projects of mine. A poetry book and a self-help/care journal. Really proud of my accomplishments this year. My second book/collection of poetry will be out sometime in 2018. And it has a title…

 

A Cryptic Human Entity will be released in mid-2018 and will have approximately 50-75 pages and it’ll be my most personal collection to date. A carefully selected list of poetry with subjects such as lust, intense emotions, desire and passion. It’s still a work in progress as I write, but for this particular project, I really wanted to take my time in creating a preferred choice of depth, as well as a blank canvas for one’s truth to unveil. It is always important to write from the heart and to mean every word, and feel brave enough to open up about our darker, harder-to-reach emotions.

Even now, as I talk about my second book, it’s strange yet I am excited to complete my mission of honest creativity. In the past, I would have never considered doing something quite like this. Wouldn’t even have stuck to a blog like this. So, every little step is a new accomplishment in my eyes. Honestly grateful for all things I have witnessed and achieved in 2017. And I think next year will be even greater than the previous.

 
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, my next post will be up either tomorrow or Monday, depending on how inspired I am to write. Let’s hope my writer’s block doesn’t return for a while. xo

 

 

Writing Session #26

I write this in a hurry because the day has completely passed me by without realizing it.

But the good news is, I think I finally have an official book cover for my second collection of poetry! Which, certainly makes the chaos of today worthwhile. As always, thank you to everyone who has been checking this blog, and appreciating what I have to say. It will always mean the world.

Plus, it makes me so happy to be here, writing material and rambling on about my thoughts and opinions.

Typical life of an introverted, quirky and strange writer.

Anyway, have a beautiful night! Friday is around the corner.

I feel so good about it. Talk to you soon!

Writing Session #25

Let me just say that I’ve really enjoyed today. One of the nicest times so far. It’s lovely how an evening with a good, dear friend can be so uplifting yet incredibly simple at the same time. Here’s to more times like that. Sometimes, we all need to have a little break.

 

This day has been wonderful, for a number of reasons. Here’s a listed few:

 

  • It’s officially a whole month since my poetry book was published. (What the…?)
  • A long-awaited reunion at the movies with one of my high school friends.
  • For the first time in a while, I’ve actually had plans. Like, seriously though.

    Time passes us by like the wind, we hardly notice it until something comes up on our calendar. Which makes me appreciate these moments a lot more than before. We should all have memories that will live on and not wilt away. xo

 

 

 

 

Writing Session #24

As my daily Writing Sessions will soon come to an end, I’m thinking of new ways to keep this blog updated with content. Whether it’s written, photographic or simply expressive, it’s always good to keep the motivation going. And, I enjoy writing so win-win.

It’s a sanctuary for thoughts, as well as food for thought, looking back on certain pieces can definitely open your eyes. Our emotions, like any, are either supressed or expressed.

Most of us conceal our true feelings, others have the courage to speak out. Which, in general, is incredibly inspiring for the less noticeable ones. It all goes to show the power in our words. How they shape and change our society.

 

My favorite motto right now is: “Don’t live in silence for all of eternity. Speak up.”

Writing Session #13

People often associate bad luck with Fridays and the number 13, but personally, I like to think beyond the lines of myth. You know what the weird thing is? Today has also kind of influenced my title creating skills. I seem to have gotten better at it. High-five to all of you!

Tonight has been mellow. Of course, a little hectic because I’ve been babysitting my younger siblings and that, but it’s all peaceful (for now). Noisy kids definitely make you appreciate solitude and quiet rooms. I should give meditation a go, might help me relax.

My blog posts perhaps aren’t too exciting or interesting for people to read, but I tend to think of this as my little journal of documented thoughts and opinions.

 

Over the past year, I have found myself a little more at ease with posting on a regular basis, instead of just once weekly or monthly.

 

In the near future, I hope to be better at this blogging strategy as time progresses on. Well, one can always aim for bigger and bolder techniques and writing skills, am I right?

Have a safe and happy weekend, everyone! Next post will be up tomorrow. See you then!

 

Creative Freedom And Truth

People have asked me, “What does it mean to “LAY YOUR HANDS BARE?” I write this in capital letters mainly because of how it’s represented on the little book of wonder, but also because I would like to talk about what inspired me to not only display my work to the online and offline world, but prove to myself that I can accomplish any goal that I set my eyes on.

The Midnight Owl

Writing at night has been my thing for such a long time, wonder why I never created a blog specifically for my late night writes. Hey, why not?

Next year, I want a lot of things to be different in my life. Not sure what the future holds, but the only way is forward or no direction at all.

I often sit here, staring blankly at the walls. The night is my shelter and my security. It assures the soul, heart.

Life is hard when certain people are nowhere to be seen, whereas other people are all the places you don’t want them to be.

If only life was as easy as the adults told us kids about, when we were young and free.

No worries, no stress, no money problems and no fear in general, apart from the occasional bruise or falling over a toy.

A simpler time. One that we long for, once doors seem to close and opportunities run out.

It kind of feels like our luck is fading with each year that goes by.

Cherish people, keep memories alive and remember to love. The story is ours to tell.

Reflective Moments // Poetry Book Title Announcement

Last night, I had the opportunity to look back on my archive of drafts and published posts and it was really interesting in general; how much has changed since DAYDREAM MADNESS became a place for all things expressive and creative.
