Can you actually believe 2013 is now saying bye-bye this quick? Seriously, it still feels like October or a few months remaining still. Maybe that’s just me? Anybody else think that 2013 has gone by very quickly?
2013 will forever be close to my heart even though it has had many ups and downs, I came out in flying colours! What I mean to say is a better and happier me, the girl who has transformed into a butterfly and stopped hiding from the world.
In 2013 I learned that I could care for someone and handle a big responsibility, I finally understood myself and what I want in life, I tackled my lack of self-esteem and self-confidence by going to a confidence building group, I have come out of my shell quite a bit. I have conquered some of my fears. I still have plenty more to face and that is what 2014 is for!
Enough about 2013.
To welcome 2014 I have the perfect tune!
Song: Kiss of Life
Artist: Friendly Fires
This is one of my favourite songs and it makes me want to dance and be care free and leave the negativity well behind!
Maybe I should ask the lead vocalist for some dance lessons, he’s got moves! I just love how he dances like he doesn’t care.
So let’s dance ourselves into 2014!
To all my followers and Friends: Happy New Year and may it be the best year filled with love, joy, happiness and may your dreams come true!
Recently I have been reading this book called “The Magic” and it is mostly about feeling gratitude for everything you have in life and feeling grateful.
I’ve been following the exercises in the book for the past 18 days and I’ve noticed a huge difference in the way I feel.
In doing the exercises everyday I feel happier and the self hate that I used to feel is leaving me bit by bit. I’ve started to learn to love myself again. Right now it feels as though I’m back in 2011 when I first came out of shell, the first time I got my pixie haircut (as I got the pixie cut this time round, again); but there is one difference. I haven’t fallen in love this time!
Anyway I’m moving on to the main point of this post. And here it is: whilst counting my blessing I put my blog, my followers and my blog friends as a blessing. It is because of you guys that I am still here blogging away. You motivate me and inspire me to continue, and your kind comments and likes give me the push I need to make my stories and posts better!
So basically I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you, my followers, the people that like my posts, my blog friends and most of all to the friend that pushed me to create the blog in the first place.
This is me just saying Thank You so much for your support and it means a lot to me! 🙂
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
And now I shall stop there.
I found this nice picture from google and I thought it said everything I wanted to say 🙂
Recently I’ve been giving a lot of my time in helping a friend for his project. I volunteered because I was looking to get some experience in writing professionally so that maybe one day I could try and do freelance writing. I also volunteered because I wanted too, and get a small portfolio together.
At first I was really enjoying it…but then the enthusiasm slowly began to fade. My mind is going stale and repeating everything over and over again. I’ve still got around eighteen more pages to write!
I think I’ve run out of steam and motivation.
In all of this I found that I didn’t get any time to do my creative writing as by the end of the day I’d feel so sleepy all I want to do is sleep! It is the creative writing that keeps me grounded and if I don’t do it, I start to feel stressed. This is what is happening now. Because writing stories is my escape I feel I haven’t managed to escape from reality and reality is catching up to me.
Also, now I have to help another friend with proofreading. It turns out I have too much on my plate and little time to do it in. I only have till 2pm to myself and most of it is taken by everything else except my stuff. Today I felt the pressure I was stuck in choosing what to do and I lost it and ended up having an outburst!
I love to help friends when I can and it seems like I love to keep giving and giving all the time. But why? Why can’t I never refuse once in a while?
In the end I decided I’m going to have a break and over the weekend I’m going to focus on my creative writing instead. The writing that makes me feel good and happy inside.
So if you ever wondered why I come on and vanish every time it’s because I’ve been busy with my friends project. For this I apologize for the on and off appearances that I make.
I do apologise for not updating my blog in about a week and a half, as there was a few personal issues I had to deal with. But I’m back now and with me I have decided to do something really different with the song of the day.
Today’s song of the day is not done by a familiar artist but by a very good friend of mine. He is a very talented young musician who sings, write’s his own music and writes his own songs! The music he creates he creates from his heart and I must say it is truly beautiful.
Before adding this track, I asked his permission and he said yeah. So I wanted to share this with my fellow bloggers 🙂
