2 Years Of Blogging (Part 3)

Alright so this will be the 3rd and final part to my 2 years of blogging, I did originally write something already, but I haven’t yet posted it and i’m not sure if i’m going to post it, so whatever this post turns out to be this will be the part 3 of it, now in case you’re wondering what the other one was about, I was pretty much just about not really having a theme for this blog, it was kinda what I had already written within the second part to this and it’s kinda why i’ve not shared it yet, I didn’t want it to sound like I was repeating myself, even though it felt like I was so yeah……

I’m not really sure where I want to start on this third part, I probably could’ve left it at 2 parts, but in the moment of writing the second part of this post, I did feel like I had more I wanted to say and I thought it would’ve been too long of a post to say whatever it was I was going to say within two parts and so that’s why I said i’d make a third part to this…….

This blog really doesn’t have a theme with it as i’ve already stated this is just a place of expression, be it serious or just because I really want to talk and share something here, I feel like i’ve gone from writing whatever to really thinking of what I want to bring to this blog and so I guess that’s why I have all these different sections/categories for things, I want to always keep it interesting, even though i’m not actually sure what part of my posts you guys enjoy, sometimes you really don’t know what people are going to be interested in and so I find that when you just go with something just to see if it’ll stick I guess you can say or not, it can really be of help……

To be honest I never actually know what I want to bring to this blog, I just go with what feels right in the moment even if I may not always feel 100% about those ideas……with blogging there have been posts that i’ve written to where I thought “I probably shouldn’t have wrote that” and there have been some where I wasn’t sure if I should’ve written them, but found that it ended up working someway……it’s weird you know!?

With blogging/writing really one thing I like about it is that you can express however you want, it doesn’t have to be specific, I feel it’s easy if you don’t think too hard about it, you can just go with what feels right to you in the moment and if you ever want to change it up later, you can, at first for me it was to say what I felt I couldn’t at the time, now, when I look at it, I think how should I express today!? Most of the time, it turns out to be random, but I still have moments where I want to express on something that’s a little more deeper and kinda serious…….if you’re thinking of starting a blog,

but you don’t know where to start, maybe you’re not sure what theme you want if your a theme person, just go with what feels good to you in the moment, it doesn’t need to be specific, sometimes you find what your theme is a little later, maybe you’re not meant to have theme and you’re just suppose to go with it……inspiration strikes when you least expect it so until then just go with the feeling and see what comes out from it, because you never know what could work, but I do have to thank this blog for giving me a place to express when I felt I couldn’t at one point, if i’m being honest,

Having this blog, really did help me to express more and it’s for that reason that I guess I still have it and why i’ll do my best to stick to it, even when there are days where I have no inspiration or just don’t feel like writing, i’ll still have it, because I know that eventually there’s going to be something that I will want to share and I know this will be the place i’ll come to, to do that…..but to wrap this post up I just want to say thank you to those who have been apart of my blogging experience and for those who have just arrived and if you were here, but aren’t anymore, thank you as well for taking that time and being here for the moments that you were here for.

For those still apart of my journey here, I hope I can continue to bring you guys posts that you find interesting and some that you may find help at times, however you have enjoyed, I hope you continue to enjoy and all that in between, I think that’s all I have to say, if you read all of this to the end thank you and if not, it’s fine, I just wanted to express my thank you’s and that, but I hope you all are having a nice day and are doing well,

If you haven’t read the first and second part to this post, you can find them both here, you all take care and i’ll see you in the next one:

2 Years Of Blogging (Part 2)

Hiya, hope you’re all doing well, I know it’s been a week now since my first part of this post, I have been meaning to write the second part to it, but I didn’t want to write it, until I knew I felt good enough to write it and so that’s why it’s taking me a bit to get to this post, I didn’t want to rush it by any means……now to be completely honest…….

Where this post is going I don’t know, i’m kinda just going to go with it, it might just be a theme here now that i’m thinking about it, but let’s just see where this post chooses to travel…..okay so I know I didn’t quite go into details of what 2 years of blogging has felt like or has been in the first part of it…….and to share some thoughts on that part…….i’m not really sure what to express on what it’s been like…….when I first started this blog, it was to have it be a place where I felt I could express myself, there was no theme at all to it, it was just a blog of expression, however I felt I tried to express

myself in the best way that could……for while I feel like I did that okay if that makes sense!? To be fair I still consider this to be my blog of expression, there have been times where I tried to come up with a theme…..and I always had trouble with that…..

You see although I can theme certain things out…..blogging was one of those things I found hard to give a theme to…….there were many times where i’d worry and go into overthink mode wondering if I was doing all of this right or not and i’d even stress myself out about it and sometimes it’ll get to a point where I would stop writing for a while and i’d go back and fourth with myself on whether I should continue with this blog, you know the natural worries when it comes to having a blog and that……

There were times where i’d notice i’d write about anything whether it made sense or not, just because I felt I needed to post all the time and I guess doing that probably didn’t help creativity wise……let’s just say there’s a lot i guess I can talk on……that’d make it a very long post ha!! One of the main things though was, I made this blog to have as an outlet to express when I didn’t feel I was able to in the way I wanted to,

but even then I still felt it hard to express at times……when it comes to personal things even though i’ll express on it to an extent……you’ll never see me go into full details to whatever i’m expressing about and i’m detailed person irl (in real life) by the way, but if it’s too personal, although I won’t say exactly what it is about, i’ll still express on what i’m feeling just differently……that said, there were moments where I stopped expressing because I didn’t want it to come across a certain way…….yet I knew I had things I wanted to share that was kind of personal that I wanted to get out

Again it’s actually quite a lot now that i’m writing about it, there might just be a part 3 here……if so it’ll be shorter in words, but these 2 years on this blog well they’ve been something and by something I mean a mixture of different emotions and thoughts and all that jazz, again i’ll shorten it in the next part, I didn’t think there’d be so much expression happening to describe blogging for two years, but here we are, i’m going to try and make this 3rd and last post part the overall view of having this blog shorter

There’s still some stuff I want to express on because I don’t feel this to be finished so, I hope you all enjoy this second part in someway and if you haven’t read the first part you can find it here: 2 Years Of Blogging (Part 1)

To be continued and finished……

Be Prepared…..

Before we start going on with this topic first i’d like to give it a bit of light by saying that this title, is also a song title, from one of my favorite movies the Lion King, I wrote it out and thought of the song because yeah I just did!!

Now this may get serious, but it may not, i’m not really sure how i’m expecting this post to go and maybe I don’t need to, so i’m just going to let it flow out how it’s wanting to……they say it’s important to be prepared always, yet at times there are moments that even when you think you’re prepared, there’s always a chance something’s going to end up catching you off guard……no matter how many times you may do your best to make sure

You’re not missing something, a lot of those times you may because you can’t be prepared for everything, sometimes a lot of the things that happen, comes from it being unexpected and yeah not knowing what to expect can get stressful and there’s going to be moments where you may get frustrated or angry even, but when we start to feel those emotions……we have to keep in mind that it’s not going to always be something we can control.

Things happen and sometimes even when you’re prepared, it doesn’t mean that you’re always going to be fully prepared, prepared……maybe that doesn’t make much sense…..but what i’m trying to get at is……even when things seems to be a little out of control……be prepared for the moments that you’re not prepared for, it’s like that saying expect the unexpected….

A lot of the time we don’t know a lot that is going to happen, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t always suit up for it in the best way possible, we may not know what’s to come, but we have to believe that whatever it is, it’ll be good in someway and who knows it may just be the very thing that we’ve been looking for without realizing or most likely something we didn’t see coming that we didn’t even think about in the first place!!

When we least expect it, we will soon find or come across something that might just be hard to explain at this moment, but will soon make much more sense to where we know and feel it to be just that thing that we needed……it’s all about patience and trusting the process that whatever is coming, we may not always be entirely prepared, but for the most part we’re still prepared in a way, though there’s times we don’t always expect it.

2 Years Of Blogging (Part 1)

So this might be a few days late, but I did want to write something for my 2 year anniversary of starting this blog……not really sure what i’m going to write, you may not even see this until a little later, but I just wanted to get at least some of my thoughts down just so I have at least an idea of it.

To start, in case some of you are wondering, this past Saturday (July 11th) made two years since I went and created this blog, as well as something else, it was a bit of an event kind of day, but nonetheless, for the most part it was the anniversary of my blog…..now I knew the anniversary was coming up and leading up to it, I was trying to think of what I could talk about or what kind of things I wanted to share on that day……as you can tell,

I didn’t end up really sharing much the day of the anniversary, I ended up doing some other stuff and by the time I finished, I didn’t have time to share on anything and to be honest……I didn’t really know what I wanted to share or talk about, motivation, as well as inspiration has been a little…..

Dimmed these days……that being said, even though I didn’t really have much planned for my 2 year anniversary of the blog……I still wanted to try and do something for it, even if it was just me saying “It’s been 2 years can you believe it!?” on the note…..it’s kinda a little surprising that i’ve had this for that long and that i’m still using it actually……it’s slightly like “wow” but also not at the same time, I can’t really explain it…..still though also you may have noticed, I wrote part 1 to this post, Reason being!?

I feel like there’s more I want to say and I don’t know if i’ll be able to put it all in this post, again i’m not quite sure what those things are just yet, I just feel I want to express some other stuff if that makes sense!? Now I know this post isn’t really all that long, but I know that if I go and write whatever it is I feel I want to express on, it’ll start to become quite lengthy and so i’d rather have it be not that short, but not that long either sort of a post and have it be a part 1 than continue on and have it be a little too much to read.

To be fair when I get to the second part to this and I will, i’m not really sure what it’s going to be about, but I want to make sure that I get my thoughts out in the best way possible which is why i’m going to take my time with it a little so that way whatever what’s to come out, will and hopefully it’ll make sense in the process, who knows that might end up being the longer post for all I know, hopefully not, but if it is it was already kinda stated beforehand, I do my best to keep it semi short and not have it ramble on, but for now…..i’ll leave you with part 1 of 2 years of blogging!!

You Were Here…..

How to start this…….you were here……you were here yesterday with me……you might’ve also been hanging around in general, but I knew that I wasn’t going crazy and today proved it right with your little paw prints appearing all over the place……but I knew you were with me yesterday at first I thought I was just over my head and that it was just me,

but nope it was you, you were here and for a good while too at that, you stayed with me, sure you went in and out a few times, but you always came back for a bit and when you did, you always sat right next to me even when I moved about, wherever I went you laid next to me……I know you eventually left though, but within the moments that you were around

I was happy and glad that you had visited and I made sure to appreciate your presence for the time you were here for…….i’m not really sure where you entered first, but I guess that’s not all that important, all that matters is that you were here and you let me know you were here and for that i’m happy……I miss you everyday my crazy girl, thank you for coming by to visit and for spending some time with me in the process……

It was good to have you around again, even if it was only for the moment. I’m sure you’ll make your presence known again when you’re not busy doing whatever you’re doing, be it running around, driving people nuts or just being peanut haha, you know i’ll keep looking for you, but until then……I’m glad to know you’re doing okay and are well, I love you and I look forward to your next visit, be good and try not to cause too much trouble alright!!

The Second Month Of Summer……

Soooo if you haven’t already noticed we’ve now entered the month of July……that came around pretty quickly, it was a little unexpected actually, just like the month of April, I also thought there’d be a 31st to this month, buuut there wasn’t, making yesterday the last day of June…….

Kinda crazy ain’t it, I think i’m always expecting there to be a 31st to every month, now that i’m thinking about it, but I always forget not every month has a 31st to it, leaving out February, that’s the only month I know without question that there’s only 28 days to it, unless there’s a leap year happening than of course there’s that extra day to it, making it to be 29 days of that month…….still find it weird that it’s like that, but I guess it keeps it different.

Not a lot to say with this month…..I mean to be fair it literally just started so it’s not really to be expected to have a lot to say, unless some of you have already had something happen to you today that you’re eager to express on whether that’s big or small than that’s a different story ha……

Last month was okay I guess…..at least until the end of it, yeah this past weekend wasn’t really all that great, some unexpected things happened, that I wasn’t really prepared for, so the ending of June ended up being a little bit of a bittersweet moment……but we’re now in July and having to leave June where it’s at……I just thought of something,

I know I said that this month showed up pretty quickly, but it actually didn’t……if anything it took it’s sweet time arriving and is more unexpected than feeling like it came rushing on through, I actually feel like the summer’s been a lot longer than usual……maybe that’s just me though!?

Either way, even though June had its ups and downs so to speak, July….well I don’t really know how it’s going to go or what to expect from it, I know in someway though it’s going to be different now and there’s a lot that might happen, most of it is most likely going to be unexpected and it’s either going to be a lot or in the middle, whatever way it goes, I feel i’m going to need to keep my feet planted in the ground a little more firmly all while doing my best to keep it all together somehow…….but it should be alright though

It might be tough and it’ll probably get overwhelming, but as long as I remember to breathe to keep calm……it should be fine…….

How’s July starting out for you guys!?

P.S. Here’s a new doodle I just recently gave color to, I created it in early June, but didn’t color it in until about the middle close towards the end, i’d say middle like probably a week after or so creating it!!

Daytime Firefly

So I see you came by for a visit, I knew that was you the other day and to see you again this morning, I knew you showing up by my window wasn’t just me being crazy haha…..where you came from i’ll never know, all I know is that you showed up during the daytime, when fireflies usually come out towards the night……maybe that was your way of letting me know that yes that was you the other day and you were just saying hi this morning!!

I thought I heard you yesterday a few times, at first I thought it could’ve just been me hearing things, but than again I don’t think it was, I know how you sound and whether it was just me or my thoughts about you being around was right and you were following me making sure I was okay and that, you always did follow me around and sometimes it drove me nuts, you didn’t know how to stay still, but I could never blame you for it, it was just you!!

I mean it was in your nature…….although it’s only been a few days, I miss you everyday my crazy girl……the way you’d spin around every time you thought we were going outside, how you’d get so excited about EVERYTHING!! So hyper you were, the word calm never appealed to you, you just did your own thing, we couldn’t tell you anything……..

It’s really hard not seeing you, right now you’d be sitting by my door or near it in someway or sitting by the front door, you always liked doing that for some reason, i’ll never understand that……and even though it’d do my head in, i’m going to miss how you’d let me know someone was at the door even when I was already heading towards it lol, again you were crazy,

but I loved you for it anyway……I know i’m going to have to keep strong and get through this somehow……and I know I will get through it, but that doesn’t mean i’m not going to wish you were here…..now even though your not with me, with me……I do know you’re around in your own way, i’m sure you haven’t quite left my side, again you were always near me,

but it’s just different and i’m having to find ways of dealing with it right now I don’t know if you’ll understand that…….it’s weird because I didn’t think it’d be this tough, yet it is…….and maybe that’s because we’ve had you for so long……but I know that eventually it won’t be so hard, yeah i’ll still miss you, but it’ll become a little easier……I just need to give it a bit…….

but i’m gonna try and be strong and keep looking up and around for you, you’ll probably show up unexpectedly, but I know you’ll make sure I know you’re with me someway, like today….you don’t know that fireflies don’t show up during the day much, but again you always did do what you wanted and you showed up anyway, just like the little rascal you are!!

Thank you for that, I know you felt me missing you and you made sure to let me know you were okay and it made me happy knowing that, I even saw you Ang flying around to give me reassurance that all is well and fine, thank you as well for that……I miss and love you so much my now little firefly……You behave yourself and please listen to Angel don’t cause him too much trouble alright…..knowing you though you still might, because of how sassy you are, but I just wanted to let you know I saw you and heard you and that i’m always going to look for your face!! I love you peanut!!

The Different Feelings To Music…….

You ever hear a song and just feel that it fits perfectly with what you expect it to feel like!? It might sound a little confusing to what i’m getting at so i’ll try and explain it in the best way possible……I don’t know if it’s just me, but anytime I hear a certain song and say it’s titled “Sounds of the Evening” just to give an example to what i’m talking about, now when you look at that title, tell me, what to you would an evening sound like if it was somehow turned into music!? Would it be something peaceful and quiet like, maybe there’s a little bit going on, but not too much going on if that makes sense!?

What kind of scenery would you add and if you had to pick an instrument or some kind of sound say being processed to showcase what an evening sounds like to you if it was turned into music what would you pick!? Sometimes when we listen to music it can have this specific way of sounding to where it almost always fits a theme of some sort…..so say you’re having a nice chilled morning, there’s certain songs that can fit well with the kind of morning you’re having, if you’re going for a bit of a walk even,

You’ll find that there’s something to listen to, that’ll go along well with that movement, it’s actually odd cause for me I find that music helps me to take everything in a little better than say if I was walking without music, I actually find that weird…..I can sit without sound, but when it comes to going on a walk, I need to have music playing otherwise it’s going to feel odd and maybe some of you also feel that and maybe some are fine either way, I know everyone’s different…….but I love when i’m listening to something and can feel what the song is and I mean not just lyrics,

but the music itself, it’s even more amazing when there’s no lyrics to it and it’s just the sound to the music, because you then are able to form an imagery to the sound where it just takes you to a place with all these different things……but sometimes, it’s like that when you’re just hearing a song that has words added to it, they say when you close your eyes,

You tend to feel things a lot more deeper than if you were just hearing it or seeing it even and with music you find that it just takes you on this journey when you listen with feeling and that can just make everything so much more beautiful, it’s like how a painting would feel to a painter or just any other admiration that you may have a connection towards, but to be able to listen to a song and truly appreciate these little aspects that it both brings and has to it, is probably one of my favorite things about music!!

That’s What It Was!!….

We’ve all said this word before when remembering something that needed to be remembered……sometimes though, those words come a little late at times, why!? It’s just how our brains work sometimes, now the reason i’m writing about this is because I was trying to remember the name of an actor that played in one of my favorite shows the other day (real life name) I remembered the last name, but for some reason could not pin point what his first name was and I knew that I knew it because I follow this actor

On one of my social medias, but for some reason it just wasn’t coming to me at all, I figured i’d remember it eventually, but still, it was pretty frustrating knowing I knew what it was, but could not get it when thinking about it, i’m sure you all know those moment pretty well, it’s like it’s on the tip of your tongue, but your brain is like “mmmm I feel I should know this, but nope nothing…..” and your mouth wants to say it, but your brain just goes blank for some odd reason, those moments are always something, aren’t they!?

Sometimes you’ll spend the whole day trying to get it, but than you just end up getting more and more stressed out because you can’t figure it out and than later give in and hope that eventually it’ll come to you and most times it does and sometimes you just forget, maybe those moments are rare, but it happens, long story short though, it did come to me the actors full name…..

It was Sam Palladio…..such a simple first name, it took singing a song from one of my favorite shows called Nashville to myself for it to finally click and it only took like…..2 days or so i’d say for me to remember it…..

I think that’s a new record, it would normally take a few hours, but then again I might’ve had that happened before…….if I remember correctly though I think that thought came up because I realized, well remembered that both actors that played on the show Nashville weren’t even southern one’s Australian that’d be Clare Bowen and the other is British which is Sam Palladio…..yet they played their characters so well……like seriously!!

I bought it and then I find out it wasn’t actually their natural accents, that was a bewildered or more surprised moment, the first time I learned that!! However it was also pretty cool to learn, being able to change your accent and make it sound like it’s natural, I think in a way we all are able to do that with certain accents, does it always work!?…..probably not, but it’s still fun,

It’s cool how easily actors are able to do that, i’m sure sometimes it takes a bit of practice for them or maybe they’re just naturally good at it who knows, either way it’s pretty fascinating!!

What Day Of The Week Was It Written!?

Okay so a lot of you might be confused to what this is about looking at the title here, there’s also a chance you might just be curious about the title, I don’t know, but what I will tell you is that, this was literally something that just came to mind a moment ago…..now we all listen to music, some of us may have the same taste on the kind we listen to, some a little more different or maybe in between somewhere, nonetheless though we all enjoy it in some way or form……okay so it’s going to probably get a little weird, but also possibly interesting……maybe……I don’t know, maybe it’s just me

Like I said this is something that just randomly came to mind, i’m going to ask a question and you tell if you want, if you sometimes wonder this….have you ever listened to a song and thought “I wonder what day of the week this song was written on!?” Now I don’t think about this all the time, today is literally the first time that thought came to mind!! I mean it’s quite interesting if you think about it, we all know when an album of an artist released (do let me know if that made sense, because to me it doesn’t feel like it does, but I hope you at least know what I mean there)

In case it got a little confusing, we know when an artist released their album, because it’s first announced when they’ll be releasing it, but also there’s an anniversary for that album so if you we don’t know, we learn later, but how come we never really think of the day a song was written!?

Is that a weird thought to have!? Is that not as important compared to when an album is said to come out!? I mean yeah okay it’s a small thing, but I believe that it can also be a significant thing too, I mean we hear a song and depending on whether we like it or not, it’s still pretty fascinating to think about and possibly discover those little details even if they aren’t as important, sometimes it’s the minor details that unveil the magic if you will that had the song come to life in the first place, don’t you think!?

Now i’m not saying we need to know every detail to it, just certain aspects, like what part of that said day was it being created, was it early in the morning as they were having breakfast or taking a walk somewhere, maybe during the afternoon hanging out in a garden…….maybe it was later in the evening or a little late at night just as they were about to go to sleep…….

I know some artists have even woken up in the middle of the night, because they had a dream and a song played from there and they did not want to forget it most likely……which is a pretty awesome thing to discover….maybe it’s not that big of deal and not many people care for that kind of thing, but seeing as i’m thinking about it…….I feel it to be important even if it is a small little detail……sometimes those are the best kind……at least to me it is……

All The Love ❤ ❤
