Just Another Manic Monday….

Okay so it’s not really a manic Monday, I just wanted to quote The Bangles song, I went to double check to make sure it was The Bangles I was quoting….we’re good, Good Morning by the way! Hope everyone is enjoying their 4 day weekend, I say 4 because everyone knows once Friday hits, it’s automatically considered an extra weekend, I’ll never understand why we only have 2 days during the weekend, like we have a full week to be as productive and busy, if you like busy as you can be and then the only rest time you have is Saturday and Sunday!? No wonder everyone adds Friday to the weekend days!

I remember when I was younger I’d always think “If there was an extra day added to the weekend and we had 8 days of the week instead of 7, what would we name it!?” and I would try and come up with some weird name for it, but it never felt right, although I do like mashing up words together, but it was very hard coming up with a third day to the weekend and trying to figure out a name for it, so I guess making the rule that Friday is both apart of the week and weekend, I’d say that was a good call, we don’t always need more days in the week, 7 is just fine!!

I hope that those celebrating Labor Day are having a nice relaxing day, if you’re out and about running errands or maybe you’re on a nice vacation, I hope you’re enjoying yourself and that it’s not too hectic, I mean we all know how holidays can get right!? If you don’t celebrate Labor day, I just hope everyone is having a good day overall and that it’s going well for you! I got up at my usual time this morning which is around 8am and I sat outside for about an hour, did you know that during the earliest mornings, you’ll find that it’s the most peaceful!? Especially during a holiday, it’s true!

If you ever go outside, be it for a walk, or just to get some fresh air, just take a moment to listen to everything, without saying a word….you’ll be amazed to how nice it sounds! Sometimes we don’t really have a lot of time to enjoy the day because we’re always doing something, always busy, but when we finally do, it’s important that we take advantage and do our best to embrace certain moments, even if it is to just listen to the birds and see them fly by, maybe hear the cicadas sing loud during the fall, even though they’re only supposed to be around for the summer, but hey I guess they stick around for longer after a while…..but however you choose to enjoy the day, don’t forget to just take in a bit of fresh air and have a listen to what’s around you!

Up And Early….With Some Thoughts!

Good Morning! Happy Saturday hope you’re all having a very nice and relaxing weekend or just a nice weekend, if you’re up and running around today! I got up a bit early today for no reason, but then went back to sleep for a while, originally when I got up it was about 7:48am I believe, I had a feeling it was early the first time I got up, I just didn’t know it was that early and when I went back to sleep and got up again, it was about 8:26am! I tend to get up around 8am anyway so that’s my usual time of getting myself up, if my body wakes me up early….I’ll get up about 7am and will stay up during that time if I feel I can’t get back to sleep or I’m just feeling like an early bird!

but if I’m just getting up early for nothing, I’ll randomly find myself up between the times of 2am, 3am, 4am, 5am & 6am, lately though the earliest of early of me getting up will be about like maybe 5am or 6am tops the other times are only when I have too much in my head and I have trouble sleeping…..the latest that I tend to get up or prefer to get up is 9am…..sometimes on rare occasions 10am, but that’s only when I’m really really tired and haven’t slept in a while, it’s not my preferred time to get up, but when it happens I know it’s because I barely slept so I try not to beat myself up when I do get up at that time!

I don’t really know why I’m writing about this so if you’re confused well so am I, sometimes I just write whatever feels like coming out and I try not to question it, but I don’t have a clue on why I just explained all of that to you guys…..don’t mind me! Hopefully everyone’s morning has gone well, I know for some of you out there, it’s probably the afternoon or getting close to the evening time, It’s 10am now as I’m continuing writing this post….when I got up this early morning I sat outside for a bit and was taking a lot of things in, for one….you know we’ve arrived in September cause it’s getting more chilly out, although it tends to be pretty cold in the early mornings anyway, but even when it’d not super early and the suns out beaming all over you, you tend to notice how different the air is and how cooler it’s gotten compared to the other days!

You know it’s September when you start to see more Crows flying by, before you’d only see them here and there, but the amount of crows I’ve been seeing since September started just by sitting outside is a good amount to count, it’s quite mad! I know I recently talked about doing a lot of thinking about things, which I am, I’ve not stopped thinking recently, there’s a lot going on personally, some a little too personal to share on here, although sometimes I want to, but I don’t for the simple fact of, it’s not everyone’s business, there are things you keep to yourself and there are things you only share with close people…..

Sometimes though, you don’t even want to share it with the people around you either, because you feel like it will only burden them and it’s best to not say anything and deal with it yourself! However it can get a lot to handle and sometimes you don’t know what to do, but you keep trying anyway, even when you know you should probably stop…..and you want to stop, but then just when you think that everything is good…..it comes right back and you’re there having to deal with it again! You keep strong though and you push through!

but life will keep pushing you until you do something and that could either be approaching the situation and facing the music or you leave it alone and sometimes life pushes you, for you to leave it alone or for you to finally say “THAT’S IT, NO MORE” I guess it all comes back to choosing your battles knowing when to fight or to just surrender, lay down the sword and walk away…..sometimes that’s hard because it could mean leaving something that was once important to you behind…..but at some point you have to realize that you can’t fight every battle and you can’t be the one to fix everything! You can be there for people and you help them in the best way possible, but if they refuse to listen and just continuously bring nothing, but drama after drama, you have to think about what’s best for you and your health!

Ask yourself if you want to keep fighting this fight!? Don’t get me wrong some things are definitely worth fight for, like love, happiness and whatever else you feel is worth it! That being said…..there are things that don’t need to always be fought over and if you find yourself stuck in the same old storm and fighting the same battle constantly, eventually you’re not going to have enough energy left to fight or just use for yourself and that’s where you’ll need to worry because without energy, you’ve already lost the battle….so save your energy and use it wisely on what to use it on!

There’ll Always Be A Rainbow Hanging Over Your Head

Not the exact lyrics of the song Rainbow by Kacey Musgrave, but it’s close enough, yesterday I sat outside I ended up having a bit on my mind and I didn’t know why or where it came from, it just kind of showed up out of nowhere so after I had dinner I just sat outside for a couple of hours, plus it was pretty nice out so I thought why not, little did I know we were getting a bit of a thunder storm towards the late evening, that didn’t stop me from continuing to hang out outside though, I love the rain, so I didn’t mind sitting outside with it, plus I was under something to keep me dry so it was all good!

I purposely went towards the rain though, because like I said I love the rain and I love the feel of it and also I like to get my hair wet whenever it rains, it’s one of my favorite reasons to why I like the rain, call me weird if you want I already know it! I tell you something sitting outside while it’s raining is pretty peaceful and very very nice, the thunder and lighting flashing in the sky can be pretty freighting, but the rain itself is very calming, I can sit and watch it for hours if you let me, I’ve done it a few times already!

I don’t know what it is about the rain I just always liked and appreciated it…..but that aside….yesterday I didn’t really know why I was randomly feeling things after a while I just started singing to myself, I sang a song by one of my all time favorite artist, you might have already heard me talking about her a few times, Alexz Johnson is her name, but I ended up singing a song from her latest album Still Alive, which is also the name of the song I sang to myself, I love that song, it’s so good! Not too long after singing the song to myself…..I’m not really sure what made me look at the sky, well I always look up at the sky, but when I was sitting there in my own mind, I glanced up and I saw something, that something was a rainbow…..

I had to double check because it was a little hard to tell at first when looking at it, it appeared slightly faint, but visible enough to notice it, like it wasn’t the brightest, but you still saw it and when I confirmed the rainbow indeed in the sky, it made me happy and smile a bit, I when to grab my camera so I can take a photo of it, but I then came to the realization that the battery had died, I couldn’t even turn the camera on I forgot to charge it and of course the one time I would’ve liked to have captured that, I couldn’t, but I was okay with it, I took it as maybe I was just meant to see it and not photograph it, I also wanted to take a picture of the sky because it was a very pretty color as the sun was setting and all, but again I couldn’t lol, but regardless, it was a good moment, it made me feel a little better seeing it,

Next time I’ll make sure that my camera’s charged, but this time round, it was just good to see it…..It’s one I won’t forget, well I’m going to try at least, but I’m sure I’ll always remember it, I just wanted to share that it was kind of on my mind a bit!

Hope you’re all doing well!

All The Love ❤ ❤

I’ve Got The Month Of May

I was going to go with N’SYNC, but I chose to do it old school and go with The Temptations, plus I thought it was best suited seeing that I literally do have the month of May so it works out! I seriously cannot believe that we have just arrived at the end of April, I do got have to say though, I do appreciate how the months are taking their time to arrive, at least that’s how I personally feel, can’t really speak for everyone else, but I like to think that each month so far has stayed a while, in a sense of they haven’t over stayed, but have just been enjoying themselves for the time they were here for, it’s nice, but that’s just how I have been looking at it, might be weird to say, who knows!

Now although May is set to arrive in a couple of hours, we still have to spend one more day with April and really let her know that she did alright, sure we probably had our up’s and downs, but I got to say that I have a soft spot for April, I mean she gave us a beautiful Super Moon the other night, so gorgeous it was, I didn’t get a photo on the day of it, but I did get one where it was big and bright before the actual Pink Super Moon, I did see it glow though! April for me, has it’s mixed feelings, I do like it, but it also makes me go “oh gosh” that’s only because it’s quite a special and important month to me in many different ways, but yeah April and I see eye to eye and at times don’t, but I still like to acknowledge it as well!

When it came to the month of April, I won’t say it was bad, but it definitely had it’s frustrating and non favorite moments we’ll say, but all that aside, it wasn’t a terrible month, I’m going to choose to take the positives of this soon ending month that is April and I’m going to hope and count on this month that will soon be called May and just trust that all is well with it, because to be honest…..I’m slight wary on it, you might be thinking why!? I have my reasons, but I have a lot of hope that it will be fine, because I’m going to do my damn best to make sure that it is! Just like April, May and I have our moments, but it’s still the month that I have a soft spot for, can’t really tell you how it’s going to be this month, to be fair we all won’t really know how it will be…..guess we’ll find out once we’ve entered it and sat with it for a while, but until then, we’ll wish April a safe and well trip and welcome May once she’s all set!

Here’s a few photo’s I’ve taken throughout the month of April and just some personal favorites of mine ^_^ a bit crazy knowing this is the last blog post of the ending month, hope you like the photos I’ve shared, I’ve been kind into taking pictures of things that inspire me lately, not as much, but somewhat!

Portals With Feelings Of Connection…

Happy Saturday to you all, it feels a little odd, yet not that odd to be writing again on here, I kinda feels like I haven’t left, but I know that it’s been a bit of a while since i’ve been here as well, now the title of this post might be a little weird to most of you, but it’s based around some dreams I had and these dreams are a little hard to not only explain, but to look towards the meaning of as well, believe me I tried to looking them up, but I could never figure out how to word them so what’s the next best thing!?

I write about them!! I won’t go into the fullness of the dream, mainly because I don’t quite remember everything from it, but for the parts I do remember, i’m going to try and share them in the best way that I can. We’ll start with the portal part of the title, it’s a little weird so we’ll get that out the way first…..part of me thinks that it came off of inspiration from a show that i’ve gotten into, that show being Once Upon A Time!! In case some of you know the show and haven’t gotten around to watch it, I will not spoil, there will be non of that here…for those that don’t know about it, the show is based off fairytale stories turned into Disney movies,

with a good amount of twists added, along with a few tales from nursery rhymes as well! It’s a pretty good show, on the second season of it now, but that aside….I feel my dream, that part of the dream, came from the show….I guess there’s small spoilers, a portal is involved at least in the last episode that I watched, but that’s all I will say, in case some of you are interested in checking it out! I’m not sure why I had a dream where a portal was in it, but who said dreams were easy to figure out!? In the dream the portal was made of water and it was like there was a hole within the ground, but at an angle it was the weirdest thing!!

In this part of the dream I was going into this portal I guess to get someone….but what was odd with this portal is that it didn’t really take long to get to wherever I was going, it was literally like a step in, kinda like a door, you go in and there you are, also this portal was outside within nature, now in this moment i’ve gone into this water portal and it’s lend me to a new part of the dream and this part of the dream, I see a gate and on the other side of the gate was a man and a little boy, the person I was with trying for us to not be seen just yet, at least that’s the feeling I get from this dream, we’re not in a place out of the ordinary, we’re actually in like a park area or I guess you can say more like an open field park type area with a wooden treehouse near ones that you build it was like a balcony…

I also feel there was a lake on the other side, further away, overhead, I was also talking to somebody and then out of nowhere a dog shows up, a big brown dog barking with it’s paw on the wooden railing like part of this treehouse and his leg paws standing, this dog later jumped off it, it wasn’t all that high don’t worry then it came towards me and the person still barking, but I felt calm with it, it never attacked us though it just barked and then out of nowhere this older guy shows up, trying to get the dog to bark more as if he wanted the dog to do something, after a while awhile the dog came closer me and I gave it a pet and then it was calm and for some reason the guy looked a bit upset about that, it was weird…..but that’s that part of my dream

The other part which won’t be as long comes more from different things and is more feeling based than anything, I saw myself painting like first person, so here’s the painting, I see the painting, kind of thing…and it was like the closer I got to painting more i’d get this feeling of where things started to make sense, like when you’re actually getting something and this isn’t the first time it’s happened, i’ve been having these kind of dreams where this feeling has been coming quite often lately to me, i’ve also had this happen with me playing one of my favorite games within my dreams, as i’m planning what I have in mind to do with it in my dream,

That feeling of “i’m getting it” comes back, I don’t know how to explain it other than everything feels like it’s piecing together and connecting in the way it’s supposed to and that is what I mean with the other part of the title, i’m not really sure why, but i’ve been having these feelings and weird dreams for some time now and I find myself trying to understand it, by going back into those dreams and seeing what else I can see to help me get it better, but maybe it’s for a reason that I shouldn’t question and that will soon later make sense!!

P.S. I also got to have a conversation with one of my favorite musicians, which was awesome….I just wish I could remember these conversation, that I have with the people I talked to in these weird dreams, it might help a bit….

All The Love ❤ ❤

Closely Looking…..

Have you ever looked at a tree closely!? No I don’t mean up close and personal, but more while taking in the scenery around you, but keep your focus on something specific for a good while. To explain it, I like to go in the backyard and sit there for a while, either that or i’ll somewhat pace back and fourth, while doing one of those things, i’ll have my focus on the birds if I see any, sometimes squirrels and most times i’m looking up at the trees,

Yesterday though, I found myself in admiration with the way the trees were, while really glancing at them, I came to the realization that if you look at it long enough, they sorta look like roots…..yes I know trees have roots that they plant themselves in the ground with, but what I mean is that when there’s very little leaves on them, they look roots touching the sky and then I thought about how sometimes brain activity looks like that, scientifically speaking in a way I guess, kinda…..not actually really sure, I know what I mean i’m just not sure if it’s making sense coming out, but we’ll move on….

Lightning when it’s flashing in the sky during a thunderstorm can also look like it actually, which I find interesting, they’re all like root like, as weird as all this may sound…..long story short, I found it fascinating knowing that if you look at a tree that doesn’t have a lot of leaves to it long enough……..it becomes something different and sometimes it’ll remind you of things,

Whether they make sense or not, I also thought with the leaves, on certain parts of the tree, looked kinda like a paint brush, then again that might’ve just been me, I realize this post might look like a scratch on the head,

but the whole point of it, well that I was trying to make I think was that sometimes if you look closely at something, it can give you something interesting and maybe have you look at it a little different to how you might’ve normally seen it before or it might just have you admiring it, giving you a sense of appreciation for it, just a little more deeply…..

This Was Meant To Be An Album Review Post…..But Now It’s Something Else….

Okay so as i’m writing this, it’s the first of April, speaking of first let me just say, I kinda can’t believe it’s April already, just a couple months ago, like the beginning of this year, it felt like it was slowly going, but the fact that we’re now in the 4th month of 2020…..is a little insane!! Now even though we’re in the fourth month of this year, it doesn’t mean that it hasn’t took it’s time arriving, I think each month so far has had their fair share of importance,

Meaning I wouldn’t quite say the months have zoomed by like they usually do, which I guess is pretty good so to say, yeah this year so far hasn’t really been all that great with everything going on now, but still……let’s just try and keep as positive as we can though, it’s can be a little hard in these times, I know, but if we can spread a little light in someway, then it won’t be so bad right!? As you can tell from the title, we’re going to try or shall I say were going to try and review/share some thoughts on one of my favorite bands the Jonas Brothers and their latest album Happiness Begins

Now I have yet to really sit and listen to this album, I was meant to listen to it earlier and get my thoughts going on it, but I ended up doing something else that I wasn’t expecting, but on a good note, I made something that i’m pretty happy with, now I know it’s not the best photo, but i’m pretty happy with this little decorative branch tree, there was a lot of trees and vines removed from my backyard…..now you might be wondering why I made this well, it wasn’t planned, I was just going for my usual trip to the backyard to sit and get some air and when I got there, it was everywhere

Kinda got emotional, not sure why, I think it was the fact that i’ve been going there for a while now, it’s the only place I go when I need to think or just want to sit for a while and the trees are always there and to see it without anything really, I didn’t like it, also there’s a log that i’ve been using as a stand for my camera when i’m recording and that was also gone for a moment, I found it and did my best to hide it away where only I know where it is, so hopefully that doesn’t get touched again!!

Also don’t mind the blinds, especially that one sticking out, other than that, I really like this, there’s some pebbles inside the vase that I cleaned out when I was outside and then Lysol’d when I got inside, the pebbles are there to keep the branch tree steady, these pebbles I had for a long time, I still got more in case you’re wondering, you probably weren’t though……

I knew they’d come in handy eventually, there’s also something else in the vase keeping the decorative branch tree up, but uhhh it’s a secret…….alright it’s a bag of coins, happy!! IMPROVISATION GOTTA LOVE IT!!! As for the album review that will be set for tomorrow, I want to do it a certain way,

but I kinda don’t have the energy to do it the way I want right now, I probably shouldn’t have stayed outside so long…….in my backyard, not near people just to make that clear, I was trying to do something,

What you see in the photo, however I had a completely different thing in mind to what I ended up going with instead, I gotta say though, my original idea probably wouldn’t have fit anyway, due to not really having space for it, but hey this one works too, I just picked a few branches that I felt would fit and tied a rubber band to it, it’s doing it’s job well i’d say!!

I’m going to have to change the title to this post now, by the time you read this the title will be changed to something else, it was just going to be the album review as the title, luckily the planned post doesn’t need to be up until the end of the week, at least that’s how I set it anyway in my journal, but tomorrow definitely we’ll be taking a look at the Jonas Brothers and their latest album Happiness Begins…….still excited and I can’t wait!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Woodland Mountains (June 7th, 2019)

Deep in the Woodland Mountains, exploration awaits with a special tree at hand, you might think magic is within it, but that is not the case, what is with it though is quite a discovery you’ll have to unlock to find out, how exactly!? Well that is up to you to unfold…..maybe you’ll unlock it with some kind of riddle to solve or maybe a special hunt for something perhaps!?

Each unlocking of the tree different, but all will lead to the same discovery, what kind of discovery you might ask!? Whatever discovery you want it to be, one thing you must keep in mind when unlocking this special tree though is to not expect it to be a great discovery, it might be, but it could also be something completely different to what you think it is…..remember each unlocking of the tree different, but each unlocking the same.

You’ll come across many other things as you explore, you’ll hear the sounds of the crystal clear rivers, approach some of the most cleverest and adorable woodland creatures while all becoming speechless at the sight and height of the earthy green mountains that you’ll ever see, be wary however as there may be some dangers lurking…..exploration awaits, good luck!!

Rose Garden (June 1, 2019)

Whenever I read the word Rose Garden, one thing comes to mind…..the song Rose Garden by Nick Jonas and the Administration, as you may probably guess it’s one of my favorite songs, I used to listen to it a lot when I was younger, although I haven’t heard it in a very long time, I still remember all the lyrics til this day, it’s a really good song………

Nick Jonas knows how to write good music, with songs like this, he takes you on a bit of a walk as he tells you a story with his lyrics, this song in particular though, it was the song that actually inspired this creation here.

I don’t really know what to say about this one, I know I like it, but that’s all i’m able to say on it, also the blue background was actually a different color at first, I was trying to choose a color that I felt went well with everything which is why I ended up changing it to the blue you see now.

Give a listen to the inspiration behind this creation here, it’s pretty old, but it’s still good too: Rose Garden By Nick Jonas & The Administration

Garden….(May 26, 2019)

I was inspired to create something, using the the word Garden, from a song I heard, it’s actually one of my all time favorite songs and it’s by an artist that i’ve mentioned before, two days ago actually…….

The artist’s name is Scott James, you might’ve heard me speak of him before with my last post where I shared my other creation themed on the word River, which is actually another song of his, Scott’s not very well known,

However he’s very talented, his music is quite unique, he always goes for a mellow calming type of music style, although he’s been coming up with different sounds for his music for a while now, i’m not used to, but i’d be lying if I said they weren’t interesting and that I didn’t like it.

He still has a bit of his original sound tangled along within the new sound he’s working with, which is good, because I really do appreciate his mellow approaches with some of his songs, they let you wander off a while when you listen to them and sometimes you need that……

Garden though, is one of those songs that you can’t help, but take in as it’s playing, it’s also pretty relaxing which is good because who doesn’t like to relax right!? Now with this creation, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with it, I just had the word Garden in mind and I knew I wanted to make something with it, but I just didn’t know how i’d make it……

As you can see, it’s just a small and simple little Garden, it’s got a few birds, some flowers, some critters and a little tree to it, nothing too big, but it holds up pretty nicely i’d say…….

Here’s the song that inspired this creation: Garden by Scott James
