M O N D A Y S!

Mondays are the days that begin again, it brings connection which allows the rest of the days to follow soon after! We often see Mondays in a Garfield the cat sort of way, it’s not everyone’s favorite day, but the way I like to see it, with Mondays you get more of a clean slate with it. Monday’s aren’t really a favorite of mine either, but I have grown to appreciate it a little more, it’s not a bad day specifically it all just comes down to what actually transpires within the day that can leave it feeling like the best day ever or the most crappiest day ever, but it also comes to how well you handle and get through the day in the start of the week!

Mondays can always feel like a chore to get through, but the reason for that isn’t the day itself, but the energy we put out with it, we look at Monday’s and think “Ugh” not realizing that those thoughts have the ability to lead out the rest of our days for that week. It’s true…..the energy that you put out will always be the energy that is given back to you, it’s a reflection and if you keep the reflection the same, you leave no room for it to be different….unless you switch up the energy!

You can still feel those emotions, you just got to be mindful of them…..which can be a bit hard, to be quite honest, I struggle with this sort of problem, now I don’t mean in a sense of not liking Mondays, like I said I’ve grown to respect Mondays, I see it in a different way and feel it to have a specific theme! To explain it, would be hard, so it may not make much sense! The way I look at it, is…..we all feel the days differently in a more deeper way that can be hard to pin point, yet it still feels to be of some kind of importance, now what kind of importance it is, comes down to what it feels like to you!

I’ll try and give an example the best way I’m able to, so it can kind of make sense…to me, Mondays have this sort of putting pen to paper kind of thing to it, so brainstorming in a way, preparing for whatever it is that needs preparing and working towards how you want the rest of the week to play out, not in a busy way, but in a more efficient way that’s not going to leave you feeling like there’s still loads to do at the end of it! I also feel music to be involved in some way, but that’s because I love music, but for some reason for me I think of Mondays and music comes to mind first, but it also has that feeling of coming across something new, new music, new video games, potential ideas of some sort those kind of things, just full of new discoveries!

Mondays have a practice vibe to it, it’s not about getting everything done all at once, but just trying to figure out efficient ways of doing things, learning to include the practice of managing things better and seeing how well you’re able to prepare yourself in a more still kind of way if that makes better sense….if it doesn’t that’s okay, but that how I always feel Mondays to be like at least to me when thinking about it!

Now I may have wrote all of this, but it doesn’t mean I’ve mastered any of it….it’s actually one of the things I struggle with, knowing how to prepare things out properly, now planning may not be a strong suit of mine, I’m more with the go with the flow kind of girl, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop trying to figure it out, eventually it will click and I’ll know that I will better understand it in a way that it becomes second nature in way, it just comes with practice same with everything else!

Back to the whole energy of Monday’s though, hopefully I didn’t get too off track there and that this all still makes sense, my deliveries aren’t always the greatest I know, but to wrap everything up in a somewhat slightly nice slanted bow…..Monday’s don’t have to always seem so draggy and chore daunting, it can be fun and full of excitement, you just have to give it the energy you want out of it and shield off any negative projectiles coming at you the best way you can….really it just comes down to making the best out of a situation and being mindful of what thoughts and emotions you’re giving off for the day!

If you start the week off in a panic….the rest of day is going to be filled with chaos most likely (not always) but it will feel like it! If you wake up thinking to yourself “I just want it to be Friday already” knowing the week just started then don’t be surprise when you feel it to be Wednesday, but it’s actually Tuesday! We have to try and give each day the best energy we can, we don’t have to be feeling 100%, however if the day is feeling super crappy, find something that will help change up that crappy energy or if you find it’s going slow….and you’ve done everything you needed to do that day….don’t be afraid to use that extra time on yourself if it’s needed!

Maybe there’s something you meant to do, but never got around for, you can always use that extra time for that thing you’ve been wanting to do….if you have that extra time, try and see in what ways you can use it! Maybe you don’t have that extra time and the day has flown away from you, if that’s the case try not to get too upset on not getting all that you wanted done that day, like I said not everything needs to be done all at once…..allow yourself to leave room for what hasn’t been done then for another time, because 9/10 it’s meant for another time, allow yourself to finish up what it is your doing in the moment and leave what you weren’t able to do for later.

Mondays are at the beginning of the week for a reason…..we need Monday in order for the other days to flow properly without, it would always feel like something is missing…..Mondays are what a blank canvas is before the creativity start flowing, it’s about preparation in getting things ready before you’re really ready to go, that’s what Monday’s mean to me, maybe it means something different to you! Feel free to share what you feel when you think of Mondays!

June 31st….Oh Wait No It’s July….

This is just a joke guys, I know there isn’t a 31st in June…..a little shocking that we’re in July already…..I think everyone is surprised, it don’t feel anything like July yet, it’s a bit weird, hopefully the start of the month has treated you all well so far, even though we literally just started, the one thing I can say is that we’ve entered the month of my blog anniversary, it’s not yet….but it is coming soon and I have no idea what I should do for it…..I’ve been trying to come up something different to do, we’ll be going on 3 years here on the 11th of this month, 2 more weeks….actually a week from this Sunday coming up, so not this Sunday the following one, just making sure I’m making sense here!

Now I know that I’m not really looking to do anything too grand for my 3 years of blogging, I’m not really a showy kind of person, but I do want to do something special, now I’ve been thinking about this….had I not already brought in a podcast 4 months early that could of been a cool thing to bring in, but it’s here now, which is good, I’m happy that I decided to give it a go when I did! By the way it’s actually 3 months not 4, I introduced the Podcast here on the 3rd of April, but my first episode was uploaded the 19th of March, although on Spotify it will say the 20th, same as when Animal Crossing New Horizons was released (don’t ask) yeah I know, not sure why I did it like that, I think I just wanted to test it out before anything, at least that’s what I’m thinking!

But yeah, Podcast is already a thing soooo, I have to add something else, I did have some things in mind…..one of them I’m going to do when the anniversary arrives, it’s just a post that I’m going to do talking about what it’s been like blogging for 3 years….nothing too special there, but besides that I’m still trying to figure out what would be good to bring here….I could always poll it and have you guys be apart of it, which I wouldn’t mind, I’d love to include you guys, only if you want that is! I could add some choices I have in mind that you could choose from ooor if you have any suggestions on what you’d like to see/read mainly, if anything comes to mind, I could also go based on topics that I did before that you want me to do more of, for example Now Playing….you can choose an artist or song that you want me to listen to and I will give my thoughts on that artist/song the best way I can, stuff like that, just to shake things up, but of course, it’s your choice if you want to do that!!

I don’t know, I just want to do something different this time around and I would love for you guys to be apart of it with me, it’s been quite the journey, even though somedays it doesn’t feel like it, I can’t believe we’re close to 3 years on here though, SUPER close too….I know we’ve got some time left to decide, but I just thought I’d write about where my mind has been these past few days on the very first day of July! Have I mentioned how it doesn’t quite feel like July yet!?

Anyway, I hope you’re all doing well on this fine evening, you have a good rest of the day, stay cool and hydrated, as well as safe!

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!!

Brainstorm….

In my head…..trying to sort through this scattered mind of mine.

Thinking…..just wanting to understand…..if only you knew how much I actually think, a never ending task if I do say so myself.

However i’m trying to not think about what is going in my head too much, i’m trying to sort everything out in a calmly manner without going into an overload of thoughts……

I feel like i’m getting something, but i’m still unsure……..

That’s why i’m trying to really lay everything out just so I can keep better track of my thoughts and just my scattered mind all together.

They say if you’re having trouble figuring out something, brainstorming might help…..so that’s what i’m trying to do…..i’m just trying to understand and look at it differently to how I normally would handle things……..

Hopefully, i’ll have a “eureka” kind of moment or a better and clearer understanding on the thoughts that i’m trying to sort through……..

I know and feel I can get it, I just have to not over analyze it once I do get it and not over stress it if I feel i’m not getting it right away.

I just need to brainstorm this……

I know that when I finally do get it though, i’ll need to act on it quick, before my brain catches up and realizes what’s actually going on……

All The Love ❤ ❤
