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.

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.

ramblings of a writer, part 2: music

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

tonight’s note to you

Saturday nights are the best, and being able to update my blog in peace is another perk.

I was going to post a lengthy piece, but I feel quite tired after the day I’ve had, been awake since 6 in the morning; it’s surprising how much energy kids have when you simply don’t.

May this weekend be as wonderful as you are, take care and I hope you enjoy this evening.

The Key To Maintaining A Blog

Having a blog is a wonderful opportunity, whether it’s for personal purposes or as part of a growing business/network, as it gives you the platform to express your thoughts, expand your ideas, and the freedom to create content you feel is most appropriate for this particular venture.

nearly a milestone

Checked out my stats earlier, and it seems that my blog has reached almost 1k views and 100 followers since I created it in mid-2015. Now, for some people, it seems like a small number but to me, it certainly means a lot more. I never thought anyone would be interested in what I had to say, which makes this even more humbling to witness, nearly two years later.

hello February

Changed my header image/color scheme and I’m satisfied as of right now.

If anyone wondered, here’s the story behind the main topic: the bag I was using today is one of my favorite ones, and the print really is stunning, by then; it kind of struck me how cool it would look as the front image of my blog.

As soon as I arrived home, my blog name was added as text to the photo, and the rest is history. Makes my page look a tiny bit more sophisticated, I think. But enough of that.

February, I love you already.
