March Is Almost Here (Again)

Another month is ending, how strange is that?

Lockdown is seemingly coming to an end soon, or so I hope, with the uncertainty that has been surrounding us all regarding this.

I’m personally kind of stressed right now, got a lot of stuff to do and sort out on Monday so I’m hoping that all goes well. My mind tends to overthink certain times, which can happen. Just hoping that these feelings will be put to rest once I accomplish what I set my mind to.

Life can be tricky sometimes, but I’m trying to take one day at a time, because thinking too far ahead can be a little too much.

Anyway, I’ll probably go to sleep after this, the peaceful day of Sunday is upon us until that Monday feeling comes again. And it’s March 1st on that day too, double trouble.

Take care of yourself, stay safe, be kind and God bless.

Stressful Times


Going to keep this quite short, feeling quite tired and stressed, to be honest with you.

I hope tomorrow will be good, got a lot of stuff to sort out, it can be quite daunting for me. Daily prayers help, too.

Well, that’s all from me, I’ll try and sleep in a while. Take care.

Living One Moment At A Time

The idea that you need to have your life together at a certain time, a certain age, it can all be too much to think about sometimes. We grow up with these idealistic views of what success looks like, what a perfect world entails.

At the young age of 25, I feel increasingly worried about the future. Have I done enough at this age? Am I the odd one out?

It’s not as easy as people think, becoming an overnight success, finding the perfect job, having a perfect forever home. As a whole, society’s standards are difficult to live up to.

Taught to be ourselves, yet persecuted for our differences, our insecurities used as a weapon, people don’t listen to understand, there’s a lack of equality despite all these supposed regulations put in place, to protect us from discrimination, bullying, sexism, racism and many more.

I understand life is not a straightforward experience for the majority of people, but when does it all become too much? And don’t even get me started on the stigma surrounding mental health and the simple yet complex task of asking for help when necessary.

Fake it ’til you make it, or so I’ve been told about a dozen times or more.

Turning a blind eye to your problems is a temporary fix, ignoring them won’t solve anything. Facing them is equally challenging, but the comfort you feel once you do so is a sense of relief, a burden off your shoulders.

Life will get tougher before it gets better, I’m sure.

I just hope the future is much brighter than it has been in these recent weeks, months, even years. After all, you never know what to expect.

Emotive Tuesday



Slightly mixed feelings about today.

Certain things have changed, which I only found out via a brief phone call.

Lack of communication can be incredibly frustrating, but I suppose that’s how it is sometimes. That said, I do still have hope. How much of it I’ll have left as time goes on, only time will tell. For the time being, I remain neutral on the subject.

I doubt I’ll sleep much, so I’ll probably be writing, possibly be checking my emails and completing math work for my online course, take my mind off the stress.

Remaining positive is the main objective, although it can be difficult when your emotions are all over the place. What usually helps me is music, writing on the blog and staying hydrated. (In my case, it’s water)

What I listen to is very much influenced by how I feel, as it is for most people, right? Anyway, I still have a lot to be grateful for, and mindful of.

Remember to take a deep breath, be kind to yourself and others.

Have a safe and wonderful Tuesday.

Cold Weather And Not Enough Sweaters, Life Is Complicated

Maybe it’s just me, or the world has simply become much colder and less pleasant. As if that wasn’t already the case for most of us human creatures.

I was going to post something last night, as it was International Women’s Day, but my brain just could not for the life of me write anything of necessary use. So, I apologize wholeheartedly for that.

Since we’re being honest, I must admit, writing at all has been a massive challenge recently. For some reason, it just doesn’t fit into my life at the moment.

A lot of reasons, most of them personal. Might open up on a later date, but I’ll try and see where it leads.

Updating the blog often is what I am hoping to do, in the next few months. Especially as I start on the new book project and start putting that together.

It is such a journey, all these emotions that come and go, and the people that are seemingly attached to different memories of mine.

Nostalgia petrifies me at times. That need to forget or accept the circumstances of our current state.

May your night be full of love and light.

Stress, Poor Health & Milestones (250 Followers!)

Hello again! It’s been a while. Sorry for my lack of activity in the past week. 

I really wanted to update my blog sooner, but recently, my poor health and Continue reading “Stress, Poor Health & Milestones (250 Followers!)”

save your pennies, girl!

January is the buzz-kill season of all months…

Christmas is over and done with, you’re paying the price for the aftermath
and that leaves you in a bit of a messy situation, money wise.

The bills are stacking up and it leaves you thinking “can I even afford this coffee?”

It’s a self-made problem, but I’m trying to curb my spending habits.

Perhaps I should stick to a less expensive option…maybe.
Note to self in the future: please save your pennies, girl!
