First of all, let me start off by saying that this wasn’t easy. Wanting to wake up at 5 AM means resetting your entire sleep schedule, going to sleep when it’s still light outside (in summer) and waking up feeling like you haven’t slept at all some mornings.
I know there is video after video on YouTube of other people doing the same thing, ranging from people waking up at 3:30 AM to 6 AM. However, I wanted to try this out myself and share my experience of this with you. …
I’ve spent almost a year inside now,
just watching through the window.
I see your face in memories and dreams,
I see your face through screens.
Life is so different now,
I never get to see you,
it looks like you’re having fun too,
with your friends that are new.
I’m more disconnected now,
I don’t really use my phone.
I don’t get many calls, there are no messages left at the tone,
I have no one to meet and nowhere to go, I’m still left in this room alone.
Keep your distance, stay inside. These are the…
From time to time or at least once in our lives I feel like everyone has wondered about happiness. What makes people feel happy? Is there something that makes everyone feel happy? or Fundamentally, what does it mean to be happy? It can be such a fleeting moment or it can be a lasting feeling, maybe you find happiness in people or in your work or even in you’re time alone.
However, being happy can only last so long before you feel down again. It’s a brutal fact. Whether it be in anger or sadness etc. you can’t help the…
If I have learnt anything during this global pandemic and world wide lockdown it’s that you need to do what you want while you can. Can you imagine if this was the rest of our lives and we actually had the chance before all this to do what we wanted but hesitated or put it off because “we could do it later”? well, you might not be able to anymore.
Getting out of your comfort zone is a necessity of life, if you live in your comfy little bubble all your life what are going to learn? what are your…
Recently, I have been thinking a lot about the world and the future. In our current situation when the whole world was strictly on lockdown and people were catching the virus at an alarming rate, no one knew what was going to happen, how long the lockdown would last or how long the virus would be a severe threat to everyone.
For this reason, I was thinking more and more about the way we remember our lives; through pictures, videos and writing and how much of our time it takes for us to put in the effort so we can…
I sit there in the dark wondering about the next day,
what’s in this envelope? what will happen when I turn this page?
It holds my whole future, my fate,
when I see what’s written there’s no more debate.
This little piece of paper folded neatly over another,
not very scary when you think of it
but it’s a fear like no other.
After one quick look there’s no return,
Will I smile and be thankful or will I want to hurl? …
As writers we have the need to really put our emotion into our work, even if you’re a non-fiction writer it’s usually on a topic you really care about and wish to enlighten others on. Although, that can enrich our work and really allow us to express our emotion in a creative way, it doesn’t really allow us to look back on what we created and remember the memories and experiences we had there when writing that story or article. It doesn’t allow us to look back on the little things.
That’s why in this article I’m going to either…
I’m not sure about you but the motivation to write isn’t always there, sometimes I need a little push from someone and a little inspiration from my surroundings to keep me interested, especially if I’ve not been feeling like writing for a long time.
Today I’m going to share with you 7 ways to get inspired that work for me when I want to start writing even when I don’t feel motivated to do it, these will be useful for other activities as well and I hope they will help you as much as they help me.
Sometimes all I…
In my short time on Medium I had One main goal: to write every other day consistently. That was it. I know it doesn’t sound like it should take that much effort but as you writers know a lot goes on before you even start writing; thinking of a topic, planning, deciding an interesting title that will draw people in and then you have to actually write the article. However, before I get into that, let me tell you the plan I started with and why that lead me to burn out so quickly.
Before I even took those first…
