What’s The Best Way To Tell A Story!?…….

You can tell a story in many different ways, from artwork, pictures, music, anything really, but what’s the best way to tell a story!? This is a question that I literally just came up with and hope to have it be a post for today, my favorite way that I feel you can really tell a story is from music.

You tell a story from the lyrics of the music you’re listening to, most people prefer the instrumentals or beats behind it, but the real gem for me comes from the way the lyrics are written, now i’m not saying all music have great lyrics, there are some songs that don’t really correlate the best with the way the music sounds, but it doesn’t mean there’s no story behind it,

It just sometimes can get lost in the way it’s being delivered, but I guess everyone has their own way of interpreting so we can’t really say much, you can only go with the genre and style of music that feels and is best to you!! If you didn’t already know, I love a great written song, hopefully that line makes sense……apart from a great writing style, i’d be lying if I said that I didn’t also appreciate the way the music gets arrange instrumentally.

Besides having a song that speaks to you or pulls you in with the lyrics, I love it when i’m hearing a song and the music, you know the way the instrumental moments wraps the song up nicely, welcoming it with open arms and just letting it be what it is, but also getting it’s moment to be what it is as well, it’s just wonderful!!

You’re getting to feel the whole essence, the whole journey that the songs goes on and with each instrument or beat if you’re more on that pitch or field……you really start to admire what the song is and what it’s about and knowing all of that, you’ll start to fall in line and space out with it, you can’t go wrong with that kind of combination you know!?

We all have songs though where we listen to it specifically for the lyrics and some just because we love the way it sounds instrumentally, but when you find that combination where both go hand in hand and you feel it from both sides, you know you’re listening to something good!!

That is my take on what I feel to be the best form of storytelling, but again there’s many ways to tell a story, another form that I like is art!! Drawing painting things like that, with art you get to see things in a whole different perspective that isn’t music related…..when you look at a picture, be it portrait or landscape, you are challenged to interpret what it is you see, what you think the painting or picture is trying to say and if you’re able to,

You then have to determine what the feeling of it is and compare it to your own, it can be the same or it might be something completely different. Art gives you the chance to create and interpret how you want to and it let’s you feel what you want without having to give reason or explanation, that’s why I like doodling, I get to make things in an abstract way without letting you know how i’m truly feeling, sometimes we don’t want to talk,

So we talk by making something if we’re able to, you can be in the worst mood and make something, but people won’t know you were in a horrible mood unless you go and tell them, but you don’t have to and that is the beauty of art making, you can create however you please and leave it all up to be interpreted and guessed upon without having to say a word.

So what in your opinion is the best way to tell a story!?

Let’s Talk: Blogmas….

So blogmas, where to start…..it is quite the keep up let’s just say!! This is my first time really trying this out, although I don’t feel i’m doing it properly, but writing a post everyday, I mean normally it’s hard to keep on top of blogging about things all the time, but once you sorta or really sign yourself up to make sure you blog and write something everyday up until a certain day……*sigh* goodness, it’s not as easy as it seems, i’ll tell you that,

Especially when you don’t always have interesting topic to talk about, a lot of the time I just come up with stuff and go based off feeling instead of really sitting down and planning out what my posts should be like and that’s probably why i’m finding Blogmas to be quite the task, right now it’s around 10pm and since going along with this monthly blog challenge,

I normally would start writing a little bit earlier, like in the afternoon around 12pm and for the past two days, both days being weekends, i’ve been wanting to simmer down and give it a bit and it’s not because I haven’t been wanting to write, I just haven’t been super inspired when it comes to topics, again I do most of my postings off of feeling and just choosing the first thing that comes into my mind, so if i’m not feeling the desire to write

I just won’t and that’s because I don’t want to just post for the heck of it and if I do happen to post a non interesting post, I also explain and say “hey I don’t really have anything interesting to talk about, but I hope this post is alright” I try not to write uninteresting posts, but sometimes you don’t always know what’s good and what’s not, I can’t really tell the difference if i’m being honest, but I still always try to make it somewhat interesting!!

That all being said, although Blogmas is a task and you find you have to keep at it, it’s not really been demanding, at least it hasn’t felt demanding, to me anyway, I think when it comes to challenges, in this case I get it can feel very stressful because you have to get something out at a certain time,

I think it helps to not stress with it, because if you do then you’ll feel on edge and start panicking about how you have to get a post out, but if you take your time with it and stay calm, you already know in your head, you have to write something, so it’ll automatically be natural for you to post.

It’s kinda like when you know you have to get up at a certain time and your body keeps that as a reminder and it makes sure you are up either before your alarm or when it rings, so it becomes a natural reaction, you don’t have to stress about it or worry or make yourself feel on edge,

You’ll just naturally know “okay better get writing” whether that’s early in the morning, mid afternoon or late in the evening as long as your post is ready before midnight or before you’re heading to bed then you’re good, back to blogmas though, it hasn’t been too stressful for me, even when i’m having days where i’m just everywhere let’s just say, even on those days, writing a post a day especially as a challenge, i’d say it’s been okay!!

Do I always have interesting things to write about!? NO, but for me, I find when even when I don’t have a good topic to share, having these chatting sessions and just talking or writing more like in this case, helps, it’s good to have posts where you just want to talk, we don’t always have to be interesting, we can just be human and talk about whatever it is thats in our heads or whatever you choose to write about, sometimes I want to talk about nothing, sometimes something and other times specifically!!

I think that’s okay and if you guys want to write about something or nothing, all that jazz, that’s okay too!! It’s why most of us created our blogs in the first place right!? We all just wanted a place to talk…….well that is all I have, I don’t know how long this post is, but I hope you enjoyed it for what it was, whatever that is exactly…….you all have a goodnight or good day wherever you are and i’ll send over a new post for you tomorrow!!

P.S. We’re at 11pm again…..

All The Love ❤ ❤

Do You Believe In Things That You Don’t Understand!?

That was a line from the song that everybody if not most people know called Superstition by Stevie Wonder, a good, but also classic song might I add…..so as you may all know, today is Friday the 13th, for a lot of people this day is seen to be quite the luck and I don’t mean good luck, in all honesty I don’t know why this day is seen as such bad luck, but it is and has been for many, many lifetimes, come to think of it, who felt this day to be bad luck anyway!? The world may never know, but personally it’s just a day.

I think you take with it how you want to take with it, will I say it’s bad luck, I don’t know, i’d be lying if I said I too don’t believe in the whole superstition ways of life, now do I go to extreme’s with it……I don’t think so, however I do have certain things here and there that I like to be on the safe side with, yeah I know, crazy!! Why would I believe in that if it’s not real, I mean weren’t they created to scare people or be pulled as some kind of prank!?

Possibly, I believe it, but some things you just want to be safe on and there’s nothing wrong with that, whose to say that some of them aren’t real!? We really don’t know……when it comes to Friday the 13th being a day where lot of people see it as a not so great day, well I don’t know, can a day really be unlucky!? I’d say it really depends on how the days going, one day can go by smoothly, while another may go by a little roughly……

Sometimes you can just tell when a day is going to be one of those days, just by the slightest of things happening around you, but it doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to turn it around in someway, it’s just going to take a bit of extra energy to do so.

Now would you consider those days to be unlucky too or would you just pull through it!? Exactly, just because today’s day is considered a superstition day, doesn’t mean it actually is, if we consider one day to be unlucky than we might as well say the rest of the days are unlucky!!

Friday the 13th is just a day that sometimes can be an extra energy kind of day, is it an overall bad day!? I wouldn’t say so, but everyone will have their own perspectives on it and that’s completely fine, but if we’re talking about superstitions all together, well it’s a thing that can be seen as ridiculous and not so ridiculous, it all really depends on what you believe in.

Sometimes with superstition we naturally kinda take on it, without really being aware they we’re taking on it, so for example:

Salt, if we spill it accidentally or something, we’ll throw it over our shoulders just to be on the safe side, which shoulder!? I can’t remember I think it’s the left, but it might be the right, all I know is it gets thrown over a shoulder, but that is the kind of thing that most or some of us will sorta do without really thinking about it…..even if we don’t believe in all things superstitious, there’s always something to it that tends to stay with us.

So which Superstition do you believe in!? Do you even believe in Superstitions, if so do you think Friday the 13th is actually unlucky!?

P.S. Here’s a new doodle that I made yesterday, I took some stuff out from it and added a few things to it today, I prefer it this way then to how I had it before, don’t worry not a lot was taking out!!

Energy…..

You ever walk into one room and have it feel different to another room!? If you said yes then cool, me too!! If you said no however well then, it feels different. You can really tell a big difference in energy when you walk into a room, you wouldn’t think so, but you can!!

It’s quite interesting when you think about it!? Depending on the energy in a room or place you step in, you’ll find that even you yourself, will be effected, short story time, the day that I went and got my very first facial or maybe the last time I stepped into Ulta, well okay it was that day, but i’m talking maybe before that, I don’t know, when I walked in there,

I could feel the whole vibe of the place and it was actually really nice, the energy there felt really great, which was kinda surprising and the reason I say that is because, you don’t really get that often when going to places like shops and all that jazz, it was really cool!! I remember even saying to the lady, remember the story where I talked through the facial!?

Yeah, well I even said to her how nice the energy was there, it’s good going some place and feeling a good amount of energy, it’s like breathing fresh air and enjoying it you know!? That kinda of thing is pretty rare…….

When you really think about it overall, it’s pretty interesting knowing how just one room alone can have it’s very own individual energy so if you ever walk into a room and the energy is slightly off then try to avoid it and come back to it later, but if you walk into a room and the energy is pretty darn great, don’t be afraid to acknowledge it and take it in for the moment and enjoy it, I mean who knows when you’ll feel an energy that nice again!?

Just saying!!

P.S. Here’s one of my recent doodles:

I’m not sure why I chose today to post it, but I did, I guess I just felt like sharing this one, it was different to what you’re seeing now, not too different, but kinda, I ended up fixing it a bit to make it a little better, don’t know why, I just felt it needed a bit of tweaking done to it……..

I might actually have some colors in mind for this one, I just don’t know in which way I want to add them in just yet, it’ll come to me though!!

I Think I’m Going To Make This A Short One……

I’m going to be real here, i’ve been slightly stressing out on what to write about today, I don’t have anything interesting to talk about so i’ve been trying to do other things for the time being so that way in case something did pop up to me, i’d be able to write about it, but all that came up was me getting anxious for what, I have no idea, I just was and still am a little!!

I think maybe today I just need to calm, no need to get stressed because you don’t have something to write about right!? If I happened to have something come up before I head on to bed, then i’ll try and write it before then, but if not, I hope this post is okay for now……..

Today’s Tuesday Right!? Okay Just Checking…..

So today was pretty interesting, something happened a little earlier today that I cannot begin to tell you without really going into details about it, let’s just say it happened in a unexpected way and that I hope everyones okay!!

I hope you guys are okay too, question, is it just me or has the days been pretty out of wack these past few days!? For me they have, last Friday felt like Saturday, Saturday felt like Sunday, Sunday felt like…..well Sunday with Monday mixed in it, Yesterday felt like Tuesday and today well I wasn’t sure whether it was Tuesday or not, I asked a few times today to be sure.

It is Tuesday, don’t worry, I sometimes feel like the days like messing with us they appear as one day, but totally feel like another which is really weird, but today was pretty good i’d say, I got new glasses, two actually and i’m happy with them, one is brown with dots, it’s kinda got that cheetah look to it and my other ones are two toned one part is black and the other other part is beige, those ones are my favorites, but the other ones are nice too!!

Quick Note: The green ones were my first ever pair of glasses and I was excited about that, you wouldn’t think someone would be so excited and happy to get glasses, but I was, the two neutral ones are the new pair that I got earlier today, I was also pretty happy getting them, I don’t know I just really like glasses, I think they’re really nice, they’re easy to work with too!!

As for the rest of day, it’s been something, again it’s been good, but it’s also been mind rattling at the same time, i’m still like “that happened” to myself like wow, that’s insane, I know me talking this way has probably got you guys confused or maybe it hasn’t, I don’t know, i’d tell you, just not now, it’s one of those things where i’d really have to go into detail to explain and it’s also one of those things where should I even bother explaining, because it’s a pretty weird topic, so that’s why i’m going to share it with you a little later.

It’s a post on it’s own, believe me, but for now that’s all I kinda got, I know this is pretty short, I hope you guys don’t mind though, if I happen to have a different thing to talk about that I want to share within a post, i’ll be sure to write about it, other than that, I hope you all are having a good day or night and I hope the week is going well for all of you as well!!

P.S. I made another doodle today and yes it’s black and white for now, until I can come up with a color for it as well as my other ones, they’ll stay black and white……not that they look bad in black and white, I just want color!!

Don’t mind the pencil left there, it’s on the outer part so whenever I remove it, it won’t be on the actual doodle here

For The Moment….

For the moment, you have to let it go, I know it’s hard and you may not want to, but for the moment you have to, it’ll come back around, you just have to give it time to do so, everything takes time, no matter how fast we may want it to go or how bad we want it to happen, it’s still going to take time, if we tried to rush everything we had going on, we wouldn’t be able to see all the progress we’ve made along the way, when we try and rush things we don’t give it the time it needs to fully unfold, sure it can turn into a stressful matter because we don’t know how everything will play out….

Not knowing can get pretty frustrating, but trying to rush things to happen is much more frustrating, because you’re expecting there to be quick results, you’re wanting everything to happen right away, you gotta give it the time it needs to come together, what is yours, will always be there for you, it’s not going anywhere, just because it may go for a while doesn’t mean that it’s going to go forever, it’s still there, but sometimes it has to go away in order for it to come back to you better.

It’s not always clear why and at times it’s not going to be and that’s okay, but you need to know there’s nothing to worry about, things just need time, you gotta give it time, trust that everything is working in the order it needs to, for the moment let the worries, stress and everything else go, put it to the side and let the control of wanting everything to play out a certain way go.

Everything will soon fall into place, but for the moment let it go, anytime you’re feeling this way, look back at this post or find a way to sit with this feeling and accept it, don’t fight it so much, instead try and look at it with different eyes, try to understand it and even if you don’t truly get it, know that that’s okay, but don’t feel you need to give up, you don’t have to give up,

Just GIVE IT TIME, LOOSEN UP and relax, stop stressing, it’s going to work out and it will come together, so take a breather, recollect and trust, keep that hope close to you and keep it in a place of safe keeping until then.

All The Love ❤ ❤

Meditation…..

Happy Friday Everyone!! Hope you all are doing well and have had a good week and day, my day was okay, not too bad, since we’re at the end of the week I thought let’s talk upon the topic of meditation.

Disclaimer: This was the post I was talking about guys, here’s the heads up!!

Back to the post, meditation what is it!? Well if you ask me, I would have to look up the actually definition of it to have a better understanding of, but for the most part it’s pretty much just a way of relaxing, clearing the mind, body all that jazz!! It’s a good way to destress, so they say and by they I mean people who actually meditate, now I said in my last post that i’d tell you about the times I tried meditation, which I will, right now so you guys don’t have to wait too long, the first time I tried mediating……

I wasn’t sure if I was doing it right and I found it a little weird while I was doing it, a lot of things are pretty weird to me these days to be honest, the first time I tried it, I watched a 5 minute meditation video and it was one of those guided meditation videos, you know where they talk you through it telling you to breathe in and out and to focus on your breathing and so on.

Again it was only 5 mins, but for a 5 min video it did take a bit of time to get through, the reason I feel I didn’t do it right is because, I know with meditation you’re supposed to relax, but I am terrible at relaxing which i’m sure you all know by now, I was trying to follow along and really listen to the voice and what they were saying, meditation isn’t hard, but it also is…..

When meditating you have to learn to clear your mind and relax both the mind and body so that way it works, but with me, well I don’t meditate often for one, this was kinda my first time really trying it out, i’ve never really done a guided meditation before that’s why it felt so weird also when it comes to clearing of the mind…….i’m not the greatest with it at all,

I’ll still have thoughts just swarming around my head, so trying the guided meditation where they talk you through it, yeah it didn’t really help all that much, I wasn’t chilled out or relaxed after listening to it, however listening to mediation music without the talking, has helped to keep me calm…..for the most part anyway, I still have moments where even when i’m listening to some kind of meditation music or atmospherical music that is calming, I still go in and out of intense emotions, stress anxiety things like that.

I just don’t really know how to stop thinking that’s my only problem, I think too much and I don’t allow myself to relax mentally and just in general, but after a while I slowly turn my focus on the music and what i’m doing, be it reading, doodling and sometimes writing, when it comes to writing I mainly do it in silence because it’s the only way I know how to focus on it and when it comes to everything else, I try and zone out for the time being so I don’t go and drive myself mad with all the thinking and everything in between.

Point of story, meditation is good, you just gotta allow yourself to relax and just not worry about everything else for a bit, it’s not easy to do and if your a thinker like I am, it’ll take some time getting use to, but i’d say if you’re having a hard time relaxing, just take your time with it,

Slowly find your way through, for some people it takes longer to relax, but you have to allow yourself to relax, otherwise you won’t, believe me!! If you work better having someone talk to you, try a guided meditation if you relax better when there’s little noise meditation music should help, I recommend the atmospheric kind, but you can just chose what you like, which ever works best for you, however way you’re able to relax go for it.

I’m still getting the hang out what meditation is and finding the best way to relax, i’ve listened to a few good meditation songs already and just calming music in general as background noise, ones without words and are hours long and when I say hours I mean 3-11, well the one I was listening to yesterday is about 11 hours, almost 12 (11 hours, 55 mins and 01 second)

Although that’s very long, it’s a nice one!! Now i’m going to be honest here, you need a lot of patience meditating, if you aren’t the patient kind, I don’t know if quiet meditation will be the thing for you, you might find other things that help you relax and that’s fine, everyone has their way of relaxing, but I still think having calm music in the background for a bit

Can really help to put you in a relaxing mode, even if it’s just playing while you’re doing something else, but again however way you relax is fine!!

I think that’s all I have for you guys on this post, i’m going to be honest, I don’t even know how I wrote all this, my brain right now is pretty much done for the day, it’s so done that my words aren’t matching up properly when I speak, which i’m doing as i’m writing this, the only thing that my brain is able to do is make me sing a song that I heard earlier today and is now stuck in my head, it’s a good song so i’m not too bothered about it!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

P.S. I want to share a doodle, before I post this, but I don’t have one now, well I do, but I kinda want to create a new one, so what I will do is, i’m going to post this and doodle away and then tomorrow I will update this post and share it with you guys once it’s done, either that or i’ll choose a random one I already have, but until then I shall leave this…..

Insert Doodle Here: Update I have now shared the doodle that I wanted, I had to outline it before I posted, still have decided on any colors yet, hopefully something pops up, if you guys have any suggestions go on and share them if you like, i’ll write a post on a few of my doodles so far once i’ve brighten them up with colors, hope you all are having a good day!! ^_^

Meditation Music…..

So recently i’ve been listening to some meditation music, you know the kind that’s meant to help you relax and zone out for a while, for the most part it does calm things down, I mainly listen to it when i’m doodling or reading or when I want to drown any other noise out around me, some are good and even have a few favorites, others I can only listen to them for a short period of time and slightly over, meditation music is pretty,

Although I enjoy the atmospheric ones the most, but regular meditation music is good too, you’d be surprised on how many there actually are!! You go and look up a specific kind based on mood and that and i’m telling you you’ll find and have a whole list and more to choose from, it’s insane!! There’s literally a category for everything, you’ll never run out of options.

I listened to one today, I was thinking a lot and had things in my mind, I did get them out by writing a bit, it wasn’t anything feeling wise, well not particularly that anyway, it was more me thinking of someone, so I wrote something, but I haven’t posted it, it’s kinda just written down thoughts that was in my mind, but I looked up some meditation music to help calm down,

There was a lot of options again, I ended up going back and forth on a few, until I settled for a specific one, the one I chose was supposed to help clear the mind and keep you from overthinking as well as help reduce anxiety, it was working, the only thing I would recommend when listening to it is,

Just listen to it, grab a book, sketchbook, coloring book anything that is keeping you distracted or at least occupied for the time being and put it on in the background and zone out, make sure you don’t go doing something else while it’s playing that might heighten stress levels and that, because then it won’t work, with meditation music you have to be relaxed in order for it to do it’s job correctly, so that’s the only recommendation I have.

Other than that you should be fine, choose one that works best for you or best with your mood, however you want and just enjoy!! That’s all I have for now, this isn’t the post that I was talking about yesterday that i’d post, but it does have to do with meditation, it’s pretty much the same, but i’m talking about meditation music and not meditation itself, that post will be tomorrow, i’ll make sure to talk about it fully from when I tried it.

What’s your favorite kind of meditation music, do you prefer regular kind, nature sounds or the atmospheric “spacey” kind!?

Here’s another doodle I did today, I haven’t added any colors yet as you can see, any suggestions are welcome though!!

P.s. Here’s the song if you want to hear it:

I Think I Unknowingly Signed Up For Blogmas!?….

This is a real title you’re reading here, i’m not just writing this just because, so far as i’ve written a post everyday since the start of December and I didn’t even pay it any mind, it wasn’t until I really looked at all my posts today that I realized I think I might’ve signed up for blogmas unknowingly.

It’s no wonder I was so eager to post my last post before midnight last night, literally, I could’ve posted my post a little earlier, but I wanted to have a cover photo for it and I wanted to be one of my doodles, it took a while to get it from emails, had to send it over from my phone to my computer, so yeah that’s why it was posted a little later during the night.

Since we’re now on the topic of blogmas, this is actually my first time really trying one of these, although i’m not really sure if i’m officially apart of it, considering I haven’t quite added blogmas to my posts to show i’ve joined it, i’ve kinda just been writing posts everyday this month so far, again I didn’t really think about it until today really……in a way though, maybe that’s a good thing, i’ve heard how stressful blogmas can be at times…….

Having to find a topic to write about everyday for a whole month, I know sometimes some people don’t always get a chance to finish it all the way, not because they don’t want to, but because of how much work it is, you wouldn’t think it’d be so overwhelming, but it can be if it’s not balanced right, that goes with blogging in general i’m sure as well as everything else.

You know to be honest though, i’m not really sure on the whole concept of blogmas and if there’s a certain way to participate, I just always took it as you have to try and blog everyday up until Christmas I believe something like that, i’m not really sure, again I haven’t actually officially joined really, it just feels like I have because i’ve been writing a post everyday since the start of this month, willingly, I haven’t forced myself, i’m kinda just going on the randomness of it, it’s probably why it’s working because i’m not thinking too hard about it and not stressing, not that much anyway.

However i’m feeling as though I have a deadline with this post, for some reason I don’t want to miss a day so i’m trying to see how long I actually last with this, with blogmas you kinda have to plan out your posts, I don’t do that, planning as you all know just isn’t my thing, so that’s why i’m going with whatever floats out of me when it comes to posting, although…….

There is one post that i’m planning to write, it was suppose to be written today, but i’m going to either leave it for tomorrow or Friday, I thinking end of the week fits it better, if you don’t see the post i’m talking about tomorrow then expect it Friday, i’ll make sure to tell you “this is the post I was talking about guys” so you guys know, but anyway here’s to hoping I can keep up with Blogmas now, this should be interesting……..

All The Love ❤ ❤
