Slow Night For Motivation



Feeling slightly under the weather tonight, but I don’t want to let my strange mood affect my writing. Plus, it might make me feel better to write something.

Might be a good idea to complete a workout as well, boost my energy a little and feel good. Usually, I tend to sleep it off, but this time around, I really wanted to remain productive.

The mind is a complex one, most times. Found it difficult to know what to write or think.

I should take my writing more seriously, the outlet is a blessing to have.

Hard to believe it’s been nearly three years since I published my second book of poetry, A Cryptic Human Entity. I often read through it and I can’t believe that it’s my own.

Being introverted and a keen writer isn’t entirely a great thing. I do try and embrace both, equally. With the unpredictability of the world right now, who could even blame me for feeling this way?

I do need to try and schedule posts ahead of time, or at least plan them better. Perhaps browsing other blogs might help me find some inspiration for my next posts. If anyone has any favorites, please do let me know.

According to my stats today, DAYDREAM MADNESS had over 300+ views today, which is incredible and I thank you with all my heart.

I’m grateful for any engagements I receive as a result of me posting on here, it does really inspire me to keep going. If there’s any particular topics you think might suit the personal feel of this blog, all suggestions would be great.

Now, I’m not the best at this type of thing, I have simply done this for years out of creative drive and passion. Would it be my dream to write full-time?
Absolutely. You do to have to be realistic about it, of course, that’s reality.

The next book I eventually publish/create, I’ll definitely make sure to talk about it and promote it accordingly. I am always learning as a person.

Hope you’re all safe and well, I’ll speak to you shortly.

Cluttered Set Of Emotions

If hoarding emotions and thoughts was a skill, I’d be a professional at this point in time. Hoping it will become easier as months goes by, and all of that.

To be honest, my writing has definitely impacted somewhat. You analyze yourself and others too much, as well as your surroundings and patterns.

Hard to believe we’re almost two weeks into the New Year, I’ve had a semi-productive timeline as of recent. It’ll pick up eventually, and so will the motivation and inspiration to do bigger and better things with my mind.

Reflection is good, to some extent. Just don’t overdo it, you’ll thank me later.

There is a lot I have to learn, and accept about myself. Bad habits, that one might need to take a second look at. A lot of books I want to read, places I want to visit and appreciate. Nostalgia seems to have hit me , ever so discreetly.

It’s also nearly four years without my grandmother, I am always in disbelief about this. Feels like yesterday when I held her hand, that last smile has replayed in my mind, more times than I can count. Her strength through it all has definitely played a major part. All I want to do is make my guardian angel proud.

The Peace That Comes With Age

As I near my 25th birthday, there’s a lot of emotions running wild inside my brain right now. Let me tell you, adult life is not as incredible as young me used to think. If you’re in a rush to be of age, don’t fret about it all too much.

There’s a difference between wanting to be older, and being it. Sure, many great opportunities and memories will come your way. Well, all our experiences won’t be the same, or any less complex, but I suppose, that’s the beauty of not knowing what the universe has in store for all of us.

Whilst the year is still in bloom, I’ll most likely do my best to ensure I don’t get lost in the resolutions I will inevitably break, the weight that’ll shed as slow as a turtle makes their way, and the poetry book that won’t be finished until the end of the year or beyond.

I try to be patient with myself, and the journey that life has brought me on. Although, it never does get easier. Being able to express my thoughts again has definitely been the light at the end of this dark tunnel of worry.

Midnight Writes

I always find myself writing late at night. There’s something about the peace and solitude that comes with it.

To be honest, writing consistently again has been a joy. I certainly do hope that it continues.

For some reason, it’s easier to get all your thoughts down in the hours where you should be getting sleep.

I’m not necessarily the kind to have insomnia, but at certain moments, the aftermath of it all does take a toll. At other times, I honestly have never felt better in my entire life.

The complexity of my mind is something I have come to embrace and cherish. As the years have gone by, and I’ve matured and seen things in a different light, from a new perspective, it has taught me a lot about my surroundings, and about my own individual self.

It’s kind of true, hardships do make you feel stronger in the long run. Life can be a challenge, and if anything, I’m ready for it now.

The only way to conquer your fears is to face them. I’m determined to face all of mine, at a steady pace. And I’ll do so, with my faith and clarity in hand.

For anyone who’s up late, I’m with you on that one.

Love, Mila. Xo

Stepping Back Into It: Perfectionist Issues

Taking the time to sit down and write something each day is refreshing, to say the very least. For most of last year, I found it impossible to put my ideas into perspective.

As someone who has written for most of her life, I am constantly looking for ways to improve my work, and I definitely found myself editing my words more than usual, rarely satisfied or content with the end result. Maybe, I’m just a perfectionist.

I am hoping that 2019 will put my mind at ease, a little bit. To not worry about people’s opinions so much, and to remember that I am just a human being who is trying to bring herself joy through self-expression as a whole.

This blog has helped me in many ways, which I am forever grateful for. And I met some incredible souls because of it. Can you believe it’s been almost 4 years since I started? Neither can I.

May you all have an amazing year ahead of you.

Obstacles…Where Do I Begin?

Hi all!

It’s Mila here, with a new blog post to share, finally.

Haven’t been posting a lot in recent months, I try and not clog up your feeds with too much emotive rambling, or heavy ranting…although, I have been tempted enough times.

Second Poetry Book Is Almost Done!

It’s been way too long since I wrote something on here. But on a brighter note, this second book of poetry is almost done. For a while, I never Continue reading “Second Poetry Book Is Almost Done!”

The Person Behind HUMANE

Always been the kind of person to dedicate posts and pieces of writing to people who have changed my life in some way, and this isn’t any different. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing a wonderful writer and poet called Jayant for the past month or more, if I can remember accurately; he who has a birthday today, and I wanted to write a little post about how great it’s been, as well as lovely, getting to know the person behind one of my favorite blogs.

I highly recommend you check out his WordPress blog, I promise you won’t be disappointed with what you come across. He is a writer whom my poetic heart is very glad to know and call a dear friend. Again, happy birthday, Jayant! Best wishes from me.

the first of many milestones

My blog officially has 100 followers! It seems like such a small number to many, but to me, it is the first of many milestones to come. For someone who’s doubted herself for the longest amount of time, I think I’ve done pretty well. Not sure what the future holds for this blog but I do know that I’m grateful for the entirety. A big thank you to the friends who believed in me, the fellow writers and bloggers who have inspired me and strengthened my belief in the written art, thank you. Hopefully, as time goes on and I slowly but surely upgrade it to a more professional standard, it will become a bigger project in the near future. Overall, you’re great.

As promised, this is the second part to my ramblings of a writer post not long ago…

It’s ironic that I’m writing this blog post on the 19th, and speaking about the emotive effect songs can have on you; mainly since it’s been exactly 9 months since I lost my precious grandmother, and many can imagine; and know the magnitude of what loss can be. At times, it feels like rain on your parade, and other times, it’s another, different story.

But, let’s get straight to the point: Music. Continue reading “ramblings of a writer, part 2: music”
