Well, this question has two answers. One tattoo I would like to get is something that would be symbolizing my mom. Her name or maybe her favorite things. With a cute design, I was thinking butterflies since I love them so much. She would always buy me things that had butterflies on it. I know that butterfly tattoos are somewhat popular. Just need to come up with something cute and cool and of course something I know that she would like. I am still thinking, designing what I really want for this tattoo. I would put the tat on my right arm or leg, maybe my wrist.
The second one, I would want a lioness, lion tattoo with a cool fiery with blue flames background. I always wanted a lion tattoo, or the zodiac sign tatted on me. The lion tat I would put on legs or my back.
Nothing too far out there. Already have two tattoos and I want more.
The activity/hobby I do that I get lost in is writing. When I am in a creative groove, writing takes over. Sometimes I lose track of the time. Writing is a activity that soothes me. Weather I am writing poetry, my personal thoughts, in my journal, or for my books. I love to write. It brings me piece of mind and me writing is a way for me to vent since I am a loner (LOL).
Another one is music and dancing. With good music playing, a good playlist, I can get lost in music for hours. Just like writing, which is why I love and do both to escape the world sometimes.
It is good having a favorite activity that helps calm you and makes you happy. Especially on those bad days. To keep you busy when needed.
What is your favorite activity to do? What do you do to keep calm? Care to share?
My middle name is Elaine. It is special to me because I use it as an Author and blogger pseudonym. I use the first three letters of my first name, and the last part is my middle name. I just decided to go with that name. I like it! It is also one of my aunt’s middle name. No other significance behind the name. Ray’Elaine!
Do you use a pseudonym? What does your middle name mean?
Blessings and Love!
Thanks for visiting.
**Some information behind the name.
The name Elaine means Light, Shining Light, The Bright One. And the origin of the name is Greek.
So, the last difficult goodbye I had to say was to my mom. She was battling kidney failure for twelve years. In the months of November and December of 2020 her health started to take a turn. Held on for two months. She was in hospice for a week and a half. It was two years ago and tomorrow would be the 2nd year anniversary of her passing. February 28th, 2021.
It was a very hard goodbye. Painful as I was there the whole time and watching her transition. That day is one I would not forget. Some of the things she went through is etched in my mind. The only thing is that I was able to have a last talk with her. Her words are also etched in my mind.
Losing a parent, the healing process is no easy task. Hell losing anyone the healing will not be easy. Keep telling myself not to be sad tomorrow but remember the good things.
Shoutout to those who have lost someone and is in the healing stage. Stay strong! Trust, I know it is not easy. One day at a time.
Kind of happy I let this out…. Such a difficult goodbye.
The answer to this question would be a definitely no. This past year have been a long ride and some lost loves. Doing a lot of grieving. I can say honestly, I am working on my healing and trying to pick up the pieces. I did not think in a year that I would actually publish my books, so that is the good thing that happened over this last year. I am also working on other projects and thankful that I have the strength to focus on my dreams. I am hanging in there though. I have learned a lot and learning to be calmer. Fix my emotions from time to time and get on with the day.
Been a journey this past year. Nothing that I would have even imagined happened in my life. It’s life though.
What about you? Is your life today what you pictured a year ago? Are you in the healing stage. Are you happier than you were last year?
I feel the biggest challenge to me would be me starting up my own business. I say it would be a challenge because I am new at this and still in the learning and research phase. I have the concept, and finally decided on a name, and other things, but still have ways to go. Need to know more about the industry I am entering, as well as many other things. An overload (LOL) There are many steps and I want it done right and do not want to rush this process. A big challenge!
Another challenge is trying to write and publish more books. Being consistent with it. Telling stories people want to hear and letting my craft out to the world. Facing challenges is a part of life, sometimes just happens to us and we accept and deal with it. I know that it will not be easy or happen overnight. I am up for this challenge. I got it! Right?
So, that is the biggest challenge I feel I will have to face.
