Random encounter on the train

A few days ago I found myself sitting in the train after a series of events that had my brain all over the place. And even as I’m writing this, I’m still confused as to what had happened but I hope to get some clarity and maybe even be able to share my writings about it. But as I usually do when my brain is all over the place, I journal about it. And it had happened to be the first page of my new journal. I was so thrilled to share my experiences in this new journal, I shared it on my IG as well. Made a little boomerang, y’know. Anyway, I put down the date and start writing the date and the first two sentences of which the last one was literally “What the fuck?”, when an elderly lady asked if she could sit next to me as I had my bag on the seat next to me so I could write on the little desk from the seat in front of me. …

Hello Only me October, goodbye Stormy September

You think we’d learn our lesson whenever we say: oh, it can’t get any worse. We all know the Universe will show you that it can. And that’s exactly what September was for me. Despite it being my birthday month, it was fucking hell. Well, I guess hell would be stormy. And normally, I thrive through chaos. Because that’s just what I do. But this…Nah. We’ve had break ups and breakdowns, turn ups and hook ups, and many firsts. Anyway! It’s October now! The trees are shedding their leaves and I’m taking a page of their book by shedding my leaves as well. What does that mean? It means, I’m ready to drop habits that are not in alignment with the version I’m working on becoming to make room for new healthy habits, which I’ll share more about in another post. It’s time to focus on me. I have been very di(ck)stracted, while others have been focusing on them. Which is a pattern that needs to be broken. Especially, now that I’m newly single after …

I’m back! After 2 whole years…

Google, play “It’s about damn time”, by Lizzo because I’m back, baby! After 2 whole years. That’s right. We are gonna give it another shot. Filled with new experiences, dreams and a whole lotta anxiety. But we’re gonna do it anyway. So, what have I been up to? In all honesty, I’ve been up to whole lot and yet at the same time a whole lot of nothing. How does that work? You ask. Well, I can honestly say that I’ve experienced a lot and I was very busy. Because when the world shut down in 2020, it was exactly at that moment that I started my new job. And baby… It was a roller coaster from then on. I will not go into full detail about it, but a lot occurred after one another. Great things and just things that still give me full on panic attacks. Yet, a lot of the things that I experienced the past 2 years were not in alignment with my authentic self nor who I aspire to become. …

Ode to Gizmo

As a little kid, the movie Gremlins was one of the movies that gave me nightmares till at least 16.  Still I named my pup Gizmo (R.I.P). So, when my brother-in-law got me this shirt, I got super excited. Because I could now wear the image of the creature I named my baby after.
