Project – A to Z challenge

A to Z Challenge letter: P

Project

The best way to kill boredom is by starting a project. Do not start a random project, but plan to do it based on what you like. A project should be an escape and it’s better if it’s unrelated to your daily routine. For example, now that the weather is getting better, I’ll buy flowers and do my arrangements for my room. The key is just to work on one project at the time. Free your mind from stress by focusing on one task and one task only; that’s the whole point. I have tried working on two projects at the time and I just gave myself unnecessary headaches. Remember projects are not always meant to be successful, but you should do them for fun and to help you grow as a person. Make your projects enjoyable and use your own creativity. If you need to watch tutorials online, that’s okay, but I think it’s best if the ideas and imagination came from YOU. It helps if you make a list. I don’t have a huge list, but here are my current projects outside of my writing world:

-Painting on canvas

-Flower arrangements

-Start self-teaching intermediate French

-I’m going to decide whether or not I’ll dress up as a broccoli for Halloween (if I did this any other day, I’d be sent to the mental hospital). I’m thinking maybe a vegetarian penguin.

How about you? Any projects? :D?

Obscure Mentality – A to Z Challenge

A to Z challenge letter: O

Obscure Mentality

We’re all guilty of having an obscure mentality at some point in our lives. Many times we don’t feel worthy of receiving well-deserved awards, and it is thanks to that lack-of-confidence demon that lurks when it shouldn’t. We must believe that it is perfectly fine to be rewarded for our hard work – hence the word itself – we work hard and therefore, we earn our own rewards. We make (I hope) an honest living and others notice when we’re genuine, and even though there are others who may look like they’re not happy for us, they really are. Do not be disappointed, but be proud and grateful for the good opportunities you receive.

We’re also guilty of having an obscure mentality towards our bodies and souls. We’re all unique and imagine what the world would be like if we all looked the same. Boring, right? You’re beautiful, and while not everyone will be attracted to you, that does not mean you’re ugly. To be honest, I would not like it if every guy out there fell for me, but that’s just me. In my opinion, the right person will initially be drawn to you by the way you look – and that doesn’t mean that only happens when you are wearing something special or ten pounds of make up – but because this person was destined to fall for you at any time. Remember, the right person will be impressed by the way you look, but will fall in love with you for your soul. Do not force anything to happen, nor chase the ones you like, because that may divert you from your true destiny.

Night – A to Z challenge

A to Z challenge letter: N

Night

I’m an owl, I honestly feel that my ideas flow better at night. I’m still a morning person, I wake up when I need to and with lots of energy to start the day. If you ask me why I’m this way, you will never get a definitive answer. I love the clear night sky, where you can see the stars and the moon. I still wish upon stars and find constellations, and I think it is important to zone out and focus on yourself at that very moment. I cannot do this during the day, because the sun isn’t meant to be looked at with your bare eyes —unless you have some weird fetish — but at night it is different, I can look up and imagine other worlds that are out there. We get really amazing clear skies here in Ontario, and sometimes on my way to the store I’ll stop and gaze at all the wonders of the universe. It’s funny when people walk by and they think I’m staring at some catastrophic event, “aren’t the stars beautiful?” —and there goes any chance of my neighbours thinking I’m not crazy. What else can I say, other than the Night is beautiful and you should stare at it, at least once in your life.

Daily Prompt: You confident thing

The daily post asks: You sexy thing: Tell us about your best confidence outfit. Don’t leave out the shoes or the perfect accessories.

 

When I read the question, I giggled like a kid. It just caught me off-guard. Usually the daily post will have a different word usage.

For many years, I wished I had the confidence I had when I was little. But, not anymore! My outfits do not contribute to my confidence. I honestly can feel ‘sexy’ or ‘hot’ or whatever you want to call it, wearing sweats and a bunnyhug (I have friends from Saskatchewan). One could have the sexiest outfit in the entire universe – providing aliens wear clothes – and still have low self-esteem. I feel good in anything; dresses, heels, flats, sweaters, jackets, raincoats, etcetera.  There should not be just the one outfit that makes you feel good, because there isn’t one for every moment in your life. Keep it that way, do not let clothing define your confidence, but shine through it and make others see your soul before the outfit.

This is me throwing a performance for my grandparents when I was a kid.

Poetry: Heal

6640_119281658479_5164385_n

Delicacy of sweet lips

adorn my soul in glistening notes

beyond conundrum

on a path of petals

and windy salute

~~~

In the woods where branches meet

she carves her loss

with a punctured heart

and liberating sorrows 

she must try

~~~

Numb from all feelings

a beaming sun ray caresses her doubts

in conjunction with revelations

she faces the opposite

she finds a new horizon

~~~

Aboard her destiny she sets forth

glancing upon tomorrow

abandoning the sorrows

and dancing to no limits

she heals

Random Photo of the Day #14…with a Story Starter…and an Ellie update

Hello everyone! How’s it going? I don’t have a lot to update on, other than I went back to work this week. It’s been awesome so far, but I am exhausted! Tomorrow (Sunday, you know it might be Monday where you are right now) I shall just relax and do nothing…okay, I’ll clean my room and things like that. That’s all I have to say. I’m just happy I get to live another day :).

Today’s photo of the day reminds me of the beauty of this planet and how cheerful nature can be. Look at all those colours! I just love to stare at this photo — you know, in a non-creepy way — and it always inspires me whenever I look at it. Enjoy and don’t forget to unroll the love! 😀

Story Starter: I love…

Kissing Kite – A to Z Challenge

A to Z challenge letter: K

Kissing Kite

“What on earth did you drink, Ellie?”

Hmm..tea? But hear me out, Kissing Kite is just a term I made up to explain the wonders of a majestic kiss. A kiss is the wonder of the soul, and kisses should always mean something positive. Kisses are not always romantic, they can also be friendly, you know kissing on the cheek as a greeting. But, the kisses I’m referring to right now are the romantic ones. The reason why is because you see a lot of people misusing kisses. As cheesy as it may sound, I think a kiss should make you feel like you’re above the clouds (you know, without the height fear), that your soul has been opened and flourished into a blossom of gratitude for love and life. Like a kite, a kiss must lift you up with the assurance of being taken care of by someone who admires who you are. It doesn’t mean being tied down and held by someone, what I mean to say is that a kissing kite must involve someone who will hold your hand and guide you (and vice versa). “But kites can fly away,” yes, but not always. That’s what amazing about that feeling, because once you are up there in love heaven, you would have envisioned everything that life had to offer. You would have been where not everyone has been before, and if you float away from a lover, rest assure you’ll appear in someone else’s life, who will take better care of you. A true kissing kite should not make you regret those kissing moments, instead it should make you appreciate the moment you drifted away (well, unless you didn’t then you just keep kissing and be grateful for it), because you have embarked into a different adventure. Do not kiss out of fear of being lonely, but do so out of love, because you deserve a kiss that is and feels everlasting.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

This week’s Photo Challenge is all about monuments! I’d like to start with a well-known monument, which is the CN Tower located in Toronto, Canada. The last 2 photos are monuments that captured my attention. The second gives me the feeling that something is underneath the earth, kind of like Alice in Wonderland. In the third photo you can see a cabin on your right-hand side. It looks like it is hidden. Enjoy :)!

Joy – A to Z challenge

A to Z challenge letter: J

Joy

I have talked about what ‘home’ is, what is inspirational, what is good about this life. Today, I want to remind you that you should find joy in the simplest things, and you should not feel guilty if you find joy during a grieving process. I have talked about the passing of my maternal grandparents, which was very hard for me because I grew up alongside them; they were my second parents. They taught me form a very young age that you should always find the positive in every negative moment in your life. Up until the day before my grandma passed away, I thought I was going to be fine. After she received her angel wings, I felt I was never going to be happy again. I tried so hard to keep busy (with college) and found fun things to do in order to distract myself, but I felt guilty every time I smiled. I thought I had to be depressed, I had to curl up in a ball and cry in a corner. The reason I felt happy was because I remember all the good memories I had with my grandma and everything she taught me. I honestly thought she was going to be upset from above (or wherever Heaven is) if I didn’t cry. What kind of a granddaughter would I be if I didn’t grieve the way I thought was the norm? Everybody grieves differently and I’ve learned that. Just because you smile doesn’t mean you are happy the person you loved passed away. On the contrary, it shows what a great legacy this person has left for you to continue, and how much inspiration this person brought you. Of course, there are always psychos out there who do smile because they’re happy they passed, but you never know what’s going on in other peoples’ lives. I miss my grandma, but I smile everytime I think about her. I still cry when I talk about her, because heck I miss her!!! But, it isn’t like before. It is true that it does get better, but you never fully heal from a loss. It is the JOY they brought you that helps you carry on. So, do not feel guilty, only YOU know why joy is in your life.
