Daily Prompt Question: What is your favorite type of music?

This post is inspired by Daily Prompt Question!

What is your favorite type of music?

I like any kind of music, but I do have a specific type of style I like listening to. My favorite music is any kind of peaceful beats. Any beat that I can dance with and write in my journal too are the kinds of songs I mostly listen to now days.

When I was in high school I listened to rap, R&B, Pop, I still sing along if they happen to come on my shuffle but mostly grew out of that phase in my life. Before that I used to listen to country as a little girl with my dad, and rock with my mom. This was before I knew of any other kinds of music to explore, and I would just catch on to the music my parents listened to. I have Apple Music so when I’m reading or writing I usually play the focus playlist and I love everything that comes on. How could you not like the peaceful sounds of instruments harmonizing?

For days when I want something more upbeat and positive I listen to the Chill Mix my profile has created for me. It updates every Sunday with really cool chill vibes from new and growing artists. If I do happen to listen to actual songs instead of chill mixes and beats. I like my music to tell a story, and who can resist a beautiful voice? I also like to find rare/ not yet discovered artists, for that I use the Apple Music playlist New Music Daily. Honestly like any kind of music with good vibes and cool beats. I play around with Apple Music browse section a lot, because I pay for it every month might as well.. Right?

All The Photos I’ll Take… Someday

All The Photos I’ll Take… Someday

Do you take pictures often?

What do you take pictures of?

Are you a selfie kind of person, or do you like to capture moments to remember?

Are you the kind of person who likes to live in the moment instead of being behind a screen?

If yes, do you regret not taking pictures more often?

What would you have to show your kids in the future?

I never got yearbooks and towards the end of hell.. excuse me I mean high school, I’d skip picture day or everyday but that’s not the point.

The point here when should I know when I need to bring a camera.

I know I can use my phone but I like high quality, and sorry iPhone but your just not it.

Ive been thinking lately about getting a GOOD camera to take beautiful landscape pictures on. I like to use my own pictures on my website and from traveling so much. I come across so many beautiful sunsets and sunrises.

One of these days…

I have a few photos ive taken on my website if you’d like to check it out!

I love taking landscape pictures. Even though the photo never really captures just how beautiful it is unless you see it in person.
Nature is a beautiful thing.

We are blessed!

Daily Prompt Question

When is the last time you cried?

The last time I cried was on my dads birthday. I sat down to write in my journal that morning like every morning, (Well almost every morning..)

I had a lot on my mind and wanted to write it out, but not even a dent was made in the page before I closed my journal, turned to my boyfriend, and started crying on his lap.

He comforted me of course. ( He’s really the best ever)

It was a combination of emotions kind of cry. I was sad, sad because of the heart break we have done to each other, and sad that we are both to stubborn to apologize. Touched by flashbacks, good and bad. I felt homesick, wishing I could be there to do something to make his day special. Maybe it would help make up for all those bad memories. I was overwhelmed with emotions over my dads birthday. I do love my dad but our relationship is a weird one. Although, I’m thankful for a fresh start with him, and I’m grateful for our good memories. Those are the ones I will cherish. I hope to make more good memories with him and I hope he had a great Birthday this year!

This is a new thing I am trying to keep me focused on writing and posting everyday.

Neon Sign

Neon Sign

I have many favorite colors,

its hard just to choose one isn’t it?

I love the colors of the mountains

when they meet with the sunrise, and sun fall.

I love the color of the ocean in Hawaii

Crystal clear you can see the sand at the bottom.

The reflection of the sky, white clouds soaring by

Where sky blue meets ocean blue.

I love the colors of a night sky

moon acting shy,

All the stars twinkling despite…

The city lights, beautiful by design.

No!

Nature can’t be compare to a neon sign.

Daily Prompt Question

Daily Prompt Question

This poem was inspired by my Daily Prompt Question

What do you think happens after this life?

Afterlife

Nobody really knows what exactly happens after death.

Everyone has theories, stories, beliefs.

Still, no one really knows.

What happens after this life?

Do we turn into birds?

Chasing the horizon.

A bird, a new soul?

Do you think we will be able to look upon our loved ones?

Walk along our childhood streets.

Will they look the way we remember them?

I believe that after this life…

I am in my most sacred place I could ever think of,

and I watch my life as if in an interactive movie.

In paradise…

looking back at all the things I’ve done with this life.

Good, bad, everything, especially the moments forgotten.

The moments left unsaid.

The moments that loved ones cherish as well.

Nobody knows what happens after this life, but we all wish for the same thing.

Peace, and paradise.

This is a new thing I am trying to keep me focused on writing and posting everyday.

Daily Prompt Question

Daily Prompt Question

What jobs do you do in life that you don’t get paid for?

One job in life that I don’t get paid for would be writing for my blog. Although it is a job I have been slacking on . It is platform I have created for myself to express the side of me I’ve had hidden away for so many years. The reason behind why I’ve been absent in posting is because of my own mind. Overthinking, the constant blame on others when really its solely me and my walls I’ve built up around me. It’s me who hurts me the most. It’s me who holds me back from being my true self.

My job to myself is to take control of my life. To break free from the worry, doubt, self sabotage. Another job that I do in life that I don’t get paid for would be expressing the real me, fighting off the negativity, replacing it with positivity, faith, love, and trust. Some days are harder than others that’s for sure! I still have my moments when I just want to give up on everything I’ve worked toward. Days when being a negative Nancy is far more easier mentally than arguing with myself on things that don’t even matter. For example, I struggle with comparing myself and my life to others. It’s a serious issue that effects my confidence and the confidence in my relationship. Still even on my worst days imaginable I work, and fight to get myself out of the negative cycle I’ve put myself in. A job I work hard at because I’ve been in a negative loop for decades that has caused numerous heartbreaks to the ones I love and to myself as well. Everyone of us has jobs we do in our life’s that we don’t get paid for, mine just happens to be my blog about my journey to mental wellbeing ❤

This is a new thing I am trying to keep me focused on writing and posting everyday.

Trapped Inside

Trapped Inside

I feel like a cry

I need a good scream.

The kind you’d hike up a mountain for,

Be careful not to slip.

I crave a release

An escape from the devil inside.

If you dive deep enough, do you think we can drain him out?

The river flows,

Poisoned.. contaminated.

“If you were gone imagine how much better you’d feel”

The water runs black, no end insight.

I can’t ever remember a time when the river ran clear.

Filthy with toxins, hate, and insecurities.

I went for a swim and never made it out.

Drowning.

Suffocating.

Trapped.

Nobody to blame for my own insanity but me.

Locked inside my very own hell.

My head.

How do I get out?

How can I make it stop?

The current is so strong,

I know.. it’s wrong but the river, it’s just to strong!

I’m trapped inside.

The real me.

The one with hopes, and dreams.

She’s drowning.

Trapped by the blackened river.

Nobody can help her,

Only I can help myself.

The journey to the end begins.

Stop being trapped inside!

Glisten

Glisten

Her skin so shiny

like the sun reflecting off the waters

it looked so soft

like silky sheets hanging off.

how come I don’t glisten?

Never mind,

I didn’t mean it…

it’s just sometimes—

I feel so defeated.

Looking at her

then at me

If you had to choose one

it wouldn’t be me.

Affirmations of the Week!

Affirmations of the Week!

Hello

Welcome, to this week’s Affirmations of the Week!

Positive Affirmations Every Monday!

Many of us struggle daily with our inner negative Nancy. Although, I have discovered a way to block out negative thoughts. It helps to write down positive quotes and affirmations that make me feel confident and more at peace.

 When I find myself in a mood for the day, I refer back to the positive quotes and affirmations I’ve previously written to help snap out of the negativity. Happiness is a choice you have to choose everyday. I know all too well, how easy it can be to fall into that overthinking cycle of negativity, and how difficult it can be to get out. That’s the reason I make these posts every Monday to help others like me break that cycle. 

Positive Quotes

You spend most of your life inside your head…

make it a nice place to be.

Remember to treat yourself kindly when your emotions are beating up your brain.

Try to love yourself as much as you want someone else to.

Make your heart the prettiest thing about you.

I forget how to love myself most days but I keep trying, I keep trying

and that alone is a victory.

Alison Malee

You do not just wake up and become the butterfly
