Moon, stars…and something to remember

I remember, being a little girl and staying up late at night with my parents.
I remember, going outside with them and being swooped up into my mum’s arms.
She told me “look at all the stars, aren’t they beautiful!”
And she sang “twinkle twinkle little star” to me.

Since then, I have held the stars and the moon, in the highest regard.

Every night, just by chance, I look out into the night sky, wondering if the stars are out.

Just lately, due to the skies being clearer and less cloudy, I have noticed more and more stars, and without fail, each night, I have seen the moon shining so brightly in the sky that the light shines through my curtains and illuminates my bedroom in the most spectacular of ways.
Better than candlelight.
More magical than daylight.

I love it so, looking at which one star shines the brightest, which shines the smallest and which star is the biggest.
I love it so, to look at the moon and tell what shape it is, to know how bright it is and how big it is.

I have promised myself, that this year, I will do more stargazing than I ever have before.

It is my intention, upon a warm night, to grab our friends, blankets and chairs, light a fire in the pit, take our bottles of wine with us and our mallows and our toasts and our teas, and relax, laugh and reminisce together whilst we watch the sky, the stars and the moon.
That is going to be a memory to remember.

Sun, grass…and breakfast picnics?

So I had this really neat idea.
Next weekend, I am taking my boyfriend and friends and we are going for a breakfast picnic in the park.

The plan is to ride our bikes down, set out a picnic in a sunny spot, eat, chill and play games for the morning like tennis, cards and football!

I’m so excited and I cannot wait!

We are going to have breakfast sandwiches, croissants, granola, pineapples and bananas and apples and grapes and strawberries and yoghurts and juices and waters and it is going to be doubly super fantastic!!

Wish us luck and maybe try out your own breakfast picnic 🙂

New to blogging

I am new to blogging.

I recently set up a few weeks ago, with no relative experience whatsoever.

What I did have though, and the reason behind my setting up a blog, is that I can write.

Not only can I write, I can write well.

I enjoy writing. I love writing.

I write all day, every day.

I keep a journal and I am forever writing down to-do lists and appointments and what I need to buy at the grocery store.

More than this, I have a weird and creative imagination and a strong will to do what I love in life.

I recently quit my job, because I was so unhappy working there.
I was so unhappy and felt like it was time wasted when I could be doing something I really love to do.

I felt like my life was slipping out of my grasp and up until a month or so ago, I had no idea what it was that I wanted to do.
I had no idea what I enjoyed.

I knew that I love meeting new people and I knew that I love helping them and supporting them with their problems.
It breaks my heart to see anyone down in the dumps and then I have to do something about it.

So here I am, a short while later.

Okay so I have no income and have limited savings to live off which is frightening, considering I have bills to pay, not major ones but still need to be paid.

It is also concerning that all my friends and people I know are at work during the day.
There is no one to hang out with.

But what I am really thankful for, is writing.

This morning, I posted an article “Littlest pleasures of life”
And within 30 minutes, bloggers had liked it.

That simple like, just the one, made me feel so great inside.
It made me feel so thankful and like I am on the right path.

That some random stranger from across the world, took the time, just to read my article AND liked it, means so much to me.
And that random stranger becomes a friend and a part of my blogging family 😊

And now the days aren’t so lonely anymore.
I get to write. I get to meet new like minded people and help them with their problems.
And eventually one day, I will come up with a good idea to create an income doing what I love and live for and be able to provide for my loved ones.

Amen!

Just want to say, A HUGE BIG THANKYOU, to all my followers and fellow bloggers who have enjoyed the posts.

Keep in touch and take care of yourselves.
