Almost A Year (July 1, 2019 Entry)

So this summer is doing some speed by’s alright, we’ve finished with June and now we’re in the month of July, it’s insane how quick that’s gone, surprising, no, it tends to always happen that way, but it’s not going to stop us from saying ” Woah what the….that was quick” every time….

In a few more days it’ll be a year since creating this blog, how crazy is that huh!? If you were to ask me how I feel about it, well for one I wouldn’t be able to tell you exactly, let’s just say it’s not been easy!! I mean it hasn’t been extremely hard, but it hasn’t been a walk in the park either that’s just my experience with it anyway, i’m sure it’s not always like that for everyone.

I’m not going to really go into my blogging experience just yet, i’d like to wait until we get to a year of it first at least, this is just a small lead up to it. I know, I know, the anticipation right haha (no i’m kidding)

I’ve gotta admit though, i’m feeling a little nervous and anxious, not for the 1 year of blogging coming up or anything, for other reasons that I can’t really wrap my head around at the moment, when it comes to how i’m going to feel with it getting close to a year of blogging however,

I’m curious to know how exactly i’m going to feel that day, will I be anxious, excited or will I not have a specific reaction at all!? That is something we’ll have to wait and find out about won’t we!?

Now i’ve been thinking (it’s actually my specialty) seriously though, i’ve been thinking about ways to where I could make this blog better, not that i’m unhappy with it, I just always feel it could use something else to it, what exactly……that’s a good question actually!! I was thinking maybe a bit more personal or something, you know really let some emotions out, but then I think is that too much, should I not!?

I could also add more interest of things that i’d want to share on here, but I don’t quite know, it’s something i’ll have to really sit and think on, not overly, because I tend to have a habit of getting my brain all worked up because i’m stressing on things way more than I need to…….AS ALWAYS!!

It’s pretty much the story of my life if i’m being honest……anyone else out there feel that way!? Probably…..but anyway, with that I hope you guys are having a good Summer and your enjoying yourselves as well as your day and I hope you’re all doing well too!!

Before I sign off, I wanted to leave you all with a song of the day, I came up with something and was thinking whenever I write entries like this, i’ll add a song at the end so it doesn’t seem so bare, you know!?

Song Of The Day: Rescue By Hunter Hayes

This song is one of my favorites, it’s also one that i’ve been singing to myself again recently, so I thought hey why not share it, it’s a really good song, it’s a country song if you’re alright with that, not only are the lyrics great, but so is the music video for it, it’s quite artsy and inspiring depending on how you look at it……probably could’ve did a summer song to welcome July,

However I chose this song for a reason, it’s the type of song where if you’re feeling a bit low or are going through something, it let’s you know “hey it’s okay, i’m here for you and I understand the way you feel, cause I feel it too sometimes” so if you want to let some emotions out or you’re looking for a bit of comfort or just looking for a new song, it’s there for you!!

Also if you’re wanting to chat about anything, doesn’t have to be anything serious, could be random, feel free to share here, i’ll be more than happy to listen, signing off now, Happy July 1st everyone!! ^_^ (now the 2nd)

All The Love ❤ ❤

Writing Prompt Friday: Message In A Bottle (June 21, 2019)

If someone told you to write a message and put it in a bottle to send out to sea, what would you write!? Maybe you don’t want to send it out to sea, but instead just wanted to write something and send it out a different way out of curiosity to who would find it and read it.

Would you even write anything and if you did would you send it out or keep it to yourself to read or leave alone!? We all have something we want to say, sometimes it’s hard to say it however, because it’s either, we’re not really open to express what it is that we feel, sometimes we think, if we say what’s in our heads it’ll be too much or it won’t be understood……

We may feel when saying something it won’t make sense and maybe we’re just rambling on about things that not even we understand once it leaves our mouths…….so with that a lot of the time we freak out and just don’t say anything because it feels easier, yet…..at the same time, it’s harder because you know you want to say something and you know it’s there, but for some reason it doesn’t come out and if it does, it doesn’t come out right…….

Which will then a lot of the time cause us to freak out more and from there we end up beating ourselves up for it and think “that was stupid” adding more and more pressure causing our thoughts to only expand in the worst things possible, asking yourself a million one questions, over analyzing and just getting so stuck in your head that you wonder, if you’ll ever get out!?

You might also wonder and ask yourself if whether you’re doing things right or just a whole lot of different questions that float around, causing your brain to just lose it’s own thoughts………tell me though, the picture above, what do you see when you look at it!? Probably nothing too special i’m sure, it might just be a random throw together creation and you might be right, but maybe some of you do see something to it, who knows.

When I look at it, I see waves just casually flowing by, but also something else I can’t, quite put my finger on at the moment……what kind of feeling do you feel when you look at it!? Maybe some of you don’t feel anything looking at it and maybe there’s a few that do feel something with it, maybe it’s the way you’re looking at it, everyone does sees things differently.

So what did you write!? You don’t have to tell me if you don’t want to, it’s called a message in a bottle for a reason right!? Maybe it’s personal, embarrassing, or makes no sense just like this probably…….

If you do want to share however, i’ll listen.

All The Love ❤ ❤

Don’t Forget To Take A Breath (June 19, 2019)

It’s been a while since i’ve written down my thoughts…..kinda, not my actual thoughts just a simple write down, i’m sure you know what I mean.

*Takes a deep breath and releases* Maaan am I mentally all over the place today, it’s so easy I tell you haha…..all you have to do is let your mind go in a million one places and there you have it, scattered thoughts everywhere!! That’s how you do it, in case you’re wondering how to easily stress yourself out……it’s always like that ain’t it!? So easy to drive yourself mad, yet so difficult to keep yourself sane and calm…….

I made this here creation as I like to call them, a long while ago…….I was meant to use it after I made it, never really quite did though, I guess I felt it wasn’t the right moment or something I don’t know…..funny, I think my reasoning for making this was because I was having a day like today.

As you can probably see in the picture, there’s some words in a spiral, but they aren’t just any words, they’re lyrics to one of my favorite songs by one of my all time favorite bands who I actually wrote a post about the other day. The name of the song is called Take A Breath and it’s by of course…..One Direction…….I mean the Jonas Brothers *nervous laughs*

One Direction had 3 more years left before they went on the X factor, auditioned and would then later be formed into a band…..there goes my brain huh!?

Also you guys probably think I planned that, but trust me, I did not….. I went to say the Jonas Brothers and ended up saying One Direction instead, to myself, out loud, as I was writing it…..not kidding……and if you think it’s a one time thing, no that’s how my brain actually is at times, can’t help it.

Back to what I was talking about though…..this song is off their 2007 self titled album, but on the deluxe version of the album, it’s a really good song, it’s an early 2000’s kind of song of course, a little upbeat, but not too pop sound-ish, it has some edge to it, at least I think it does anyway…..if you’re a Jonas Brothers fan you’ll know what i’m talking about.

It’s one of those tunes that you listen to not only for that nostalgia feeling, but also when you need that reminder to breathe and relax a bit you know!? Try not to worry as much, it helps for a moment, but with the way our brains like to be, it can take a lot of reminding……

For me singing the lines, “Don’t forget to take a breath” plus the rest of the chorus, as well as the whole song……it works for the moment, plus it’s good to sing, I mean we all know there’s nothing like singing our favorite songs to help boost our moods a bit and make us feel a little better.

Here’s the song if you want to give it a listen: Take A Breath remember it’s by the Jonas Brothers NOT One Direction (this is a reminder to myself by the way……I honestly don’t know how I messed that one up, they’re my favorite band…..so is One Direction, but the Jonas Brothers are always first)

P.S. I feel like I might’ve shared this song with you guys before, but I also feel like I didn’t, if I did sorry, hope you don’t mind be sharing it again…..but if I haven’t, I hope you enjoy it or at least find it interesting if you do give it a listen!!

Wolves Are Howling….

With a full moon in the sky, the wolves will howl in the night…..

Some from lost and longing, Some from victory and pride

And others because it’s in their nature….

With the cold air creeping behind, Some wolves will search as a pack to keep warm from the snow, While other packs find their warmth somewhere deep within the forest…..

Each pack different, but not as different, as they both fight for the same thing and hunt for the same thing…..

High up in the mountains and deep within the forest, each pack of wolves howl to the full moon that is bright within the night sky……

All The Love ❤ ❤

Fireflies…..

When I was younger, I use to hate bugs, now i’m older and I still hate bugs, nothing’s changed there haha……although I didn’t like them, fireflies I have to admit are pretty nice bugs, I know they’re harmless, still though…….you know I haven’t actually seen fireflies in a long while……

I always wondered why they’re called fireflies, I mean what gave someone the thought to call them fireflies in the first place!? Was there meant to be some kind of story to them from long ago!?

We also call them lightning bugs, that’s more of a suited name for them i’d say, we all know they light up the night around the Summertime, they’re like little flying lightbulbs when you look at them.

It’s actually quite fascinating when you see their tails go on and off, if it is their tails that light up that is (it could be there……never mind) fireflies for most people are one of the symbols that associate childhood memories….

You’d go out back in the night and run around, having fun and then you see from the corner of your eyes or in front of you even, a little light, not knowing what it is, you become curious and start to slowly follow it around and do your best to catch it in your hands……if you’re trying that is, I know some also tried catching them in a jar, that must’ve been really tricky…….

If you were lucky though, you did catch one (or a few even) and you’d watched as it would light up in your hand and walk around a bit too or you saw them in the jar still as a stick, but also moving a little as the light would turn on and off and you either had the choice to keep it in the jar for a while or you could set it free after you admired it long enough…….

I wonder what people did the most, did they keep it in the jar or did they set it free after catching it!? Did they even try and catch it in a jar or did they just do the old grab it with your hands method!? I’ve always tried to catch it with my hands or had someone try and give it to me to let me know that it wasn’t harmful, I still hesitated, however I still held it a few times before……

Fireflies a.k.a lightning bugs, they’re okay, they’re not that bad, will I go out of my way to try and capture one though!?……..I don’t know, maybe, I won’t keep them in a jar though and if one ever lands on me, i’ll try and keep calm and do my best to admire it for a bit, until I go “okay i’m good now”

Elements: Wind (Part 4)

Feel the cool air as the wind passes by,

Can you hear the whispers of the wind speaking to you!?

How about the way it leaves you shivering when it’s cold

Or the way it lightly cools you off when the sun is a little too much!?

If you could describe the wind, what would you describe it as!?

If we were able to see it, what would it look like!?

It’s the one element that is unable to be seen with our eyes

But even though we aren’t able to see the wind,

At least we’re able to feel and hear it…..

All The Love ❤ ❤

24….

Yesterday was quite a day, i’m no longer 23, but 24 now……if you ask me how it feels I actually wouldn’t know what to say, it doesn’t really feel like anything not extremely anyway……..it feels the same, but also not at the same time, I can’t really explain it……

24……it really doesn’t seem all that scary and it’s not, it’s having it’s fair share of stuff to it, but it’s okay……the aftermath of it has been a little bit everywhere i’ll admit, but i’m hoping that everything that is going on is sorted in a neutral understanding, without there being any more back and fourths or misjudgments on things and I really hope that nothing continues to boil over anymore than it already has……..

I just want everything to be good again and for the water to be cleared that’s all, no more back and fourths, no more misjudgments, just an understanding…..a proper understanding without cutoffs or conclusion jumps and all that jazz, I just want things to be good again, that’s all……

All The Love ❤ ❤
