Giving up printed T-shirts and gifts because I am done

I do not care anymore. I used to believe it is nice to show my personality with the help of printed T-shirts but I think it is done. Last week I went to look for printed T-shirts but I decided to make a major change in my look. I do not have to show people … Continue reading Giving up printed T-shirts and gifts because I am done

Can you look at yourself long enough to make a self-portrait?

Today I realized that you will be able to draw your portrait when you are well enough to look at yourself. I always wanted to start making self-portraits but I never knew why I wasn't finding time to start. Now I realized that I was not well enough to look at myself, deep into my … Continue reading Can you look at yourself long enough to make a self-portrait?

Just Some Writerly Things The Writer In You Will Understand

Really nice read!

Your Friendly Malaysian Writer

A redheaded woman at a cafe with her laptop

So you’ve chosen to be a writer.

That means getting to know procrastination on a more intimate level. That means learning to doubt your work. Also, that means checking the word count after every couple of sentences.

But there are many other things that bind us all. We writers don’t need to stick together. We already do, through the weird things that make us uniquely ‘us’.

So how many of these writerly things apply to you?

Reblog or Repost? Is There a Difference? (reblog)

Thank you fot this. It was on my mind since last week. I reblog things that are interesting for me, wanting to share them with people, not to steal work..

Strider's Table

Recently I was asked by a fellow WordPress blogger to remove my reblog of one of their posts. Of course I had no problem doing so; I simply apologised and deleted it, making a note to not reblog them in the future. That would have normally been the end of it, but for something else they wrote in the course of requesting said removal which stuck in my mind, because I can be a bit of a stickler sometimes, and it eventually inspired me to write this article in order to clarify something.

This mutual (who, should they deign to read this, might understandably choose to unfollow me) called my reblog of their post a “repost”, unnecessarily threatened litigation, and also made sneering reference to my “many… reposts of other people’s work“, adding that to them “that is not blogging”.

Morning Affirmation

Luminous Destiny

Credit to Sarah Ann Design

I needed to hear this message, this morning! So many times {ok the majority of my last 20 years!} I’ve struggled with my worth because of my vertigo. My vertigo costed me 10 years of extreme anxiety and crippling independence.

I doubted I would feel worthy of a nice loyal guy (which also doesn’t define you.. A significant other!). I doubted I could feel more than a single mom statistic struggling in life.

Life has aligned my experiences as they were meant to happen.

Today, our gift of presence is enough of a reason to feel valued and loved… It IS the simple reason to be good to ourselves.

Being is enough 💜

Stay Safe, Speak Life, and Spread Kindness 🍃

 Self-care day 

Really nice reminder 🙂

that girl

A self-care day – mental health day – is a day that you completely dedicate to self-care. I always recommend takingat least one self-care day a weekto really look after your mental health. Everyone approaches self-care differently. For some people, self-care means settling down on the sofa with a good book. For others maybe shopping, workout, studying, watching tv shows, time with family… For me, self-care day reduce stress, improve concentration, minimize frustration and anger, increase happiness and improve my energy. I’m gonna give you tips which work for me, about having a relaxing day at home:

“The biggest love we’re all searching for is the love for one’s self.”

Tell people you’ll be unavailable

Unless your self-care day involves getting together with friends and family, let them know you’re taking a day out.

Wake up early

Make the most of your self-care day by waking up…

Spo-reflections on monsters under the bed

This whimsical essay is one I am particularly proud of. I thought to post it in October for Halloween, but I don’t have anything else to say at the moment. Spo As a boy I did not fear there were monsters under the bed. Mine were out in the hallway in the dark. They were … Continue reading Spo-reflections on monsters under the bed
