Nova’s Wise Words Wednesdays

If at first you don’t success, wine until you no longer care… Then sleep it off, wake up, and try harder!

Nova Namastè

Laugh until you cry or cry until you laugh; either way, you’ll feel better ;D

Bedtime Reflections

When I can lay my head down, knowing I was strong enough and have grown enough to firmly activate boundaries, even if what’s happening is pleasant, I will choose to feel proud of myself.

Today did turn out to be a great day, full of many special moments 🌸🌸

Thank you all, for the love and support.

Celebrating Life

As much as I want to scream “HEY IT’S MY BIRTHDAY”, and throw invisible confetti around,

… I just can’t. Yesterday evening was pure hell. Part of my day was spent arguing with someone about how I wouldn’t feel good enough in his “poly” lifestyle.. Though he’s someone I dearly care about.

A second part of the night was spent in even greater anxiety, with a friend who had suicidal tendencies. 😦 (Who am I suppose to call when I feel they might actually try to hurt themselves? )

And I ended the night literally sobbing while someone else grew irritated with me, like I was “tripping”… Full moon or not, friend slicing wrists would upset anyone. I think he (third friend, not friend from second paragraph) just had a terrible day and we just happened to miss each other’s call most of the day… So his irritation lead to misinterpretation of my texts.

For what it’s worth, it’s my birthday…. Could I have a hug please? Thanks!!

Weekly Song Challenge #22

This is Laura’s, from Lauarvent69, weekly song challenge. You can read, and listen, more of her challenge HERE:D

I have to send a special shoutout to the loveliest Beckie, from Beckie’s Mental Mess, for the tag. She’s included me, with special consideration of inclusion, while I’m going through a difficult time. I think that’s the best part about this community.


Copy rules and add to your own post, pinging back to this post.
Post music videos for your answers to the musical questions.
Tag two people to participate!










EVERY SINGLE EMOTION HAS A PURPOSE, a reason for being , IN YOUR LIFE. Love yourself and those around you through each and every one of them. Right now, this moment is the ONLY guaranteed. Your truth is whatever you are experiencing, and it’s ok.

💌Nova Namaste

Ying & Yang

You’d never know it but I’ve struggled with a bad sense of “alone-ness” the last few days… For many reasons.

I won’t be much like myself until after the 22nd.

Lately, I feel so PROUD of myself that I finally feel a significantly less desire to have someone….


My heart bleeds just as much.

Nothing lasts forever, but pain sure feels like an eternity when you’re in the pit of it.

Empath Moment

To be gifted with the ability of feeling what others do is the most inspiring blessing, and yet deepest curse.

For those of you who know this life, please introduce yourselves in the comments.

Right now, as July 22nd approaches, my soul and complete being is submitting to the isolation of silence. I don’t have any desire to mingle or socialize. I don’t have strength to try and pretend I’m ok. I can’t wear any expression on my face, because suicide is something of which no one emotion fits.

I am heavily burdened with this truth. Another year has passed, and the anniversary date is close. The sickening feeling whispers behind me. You empaths, who feel my pain, thank you for carrying it with me.

But, my pain isn’t all I feel right now. For this, I am certain. I’m sensing much grief about broken relationships, mostly those of uncontrollable circumstances. I’m sensing grief about the relationships that can’t be mended, because one of the two individuals have passed. I’m sensing grief that some of you have relationships that you want to mend; but, you’re scared… or proud… to do so.

If any of this is you, please know, you’re not alone in your sadness. I hear you. I feel your pain and suffering. I know your hurt…and my heart cries for you. Please know that I can and will listen… If you’d like to talk with me. What you feel matters. It’s valid and of value.

That’s all for now.

Namastè 🙏🏼 🌸

Good Morning Y’all 🌸

I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend this far. Our weather, here, feels great!! It’s a perfect reason to feel happy, of some degree. Here’s a few morning affirmations to help start your day with positivity.

Photo Credit Pinterest

I also want to give a special shoutout to my newest followers!! I appreciate you following me, hope you enjoy your experience here, and find the resources helpful.

New Awards

As much as I appreciate the times I’ve been nominated, usually, I didn’t fully understand what exactly the award was about… And they’re the same ones over and over and over.

I can’t handle that. Variety is the spice of life. In my case, the spice to my coffee. I’ve created two new awards, and I’ll be creating a few more in the following days ahead.

The 1st is the Leadership Blogger Award: this was created to nominate 1-2 individuals who have exemplified noticeable and noteworthy leadership. That could be in any way.


1. The first nominee to EVER recieve such an award is, Ashleyleia, @ Mental Health at Home!!

2. My second nominee for this award is, Beckie @ BeckiesMentalMess💫

🌸🌼🌸🌼Congratulations Ladies 🌸🌼🌸🌼

There’s no questions or need to thank me. I also don’t require you to nominate others, although I think it would be a kind gesture. 🙂

Award #2 is the Out -of -this -World Blogger Award: this award is to recognize the bloggers that you feel go above and beyond in writing, as a person, with their niche, in whatever way. This individual is usually a regular poster, and assists others.


1. The very first recipient of this award is Sadje, @ Keep It Alive. She’s been one of my ultimate supporters since my early early days. I appreciate you more than you’ll ever realize lady.

2. The second incredible blogger deserving of this award is John, @ The Eclectic Contrarian. He’s consistently coated my posts with love, support, and laughs. He’s checked in on me and has been wonderful.

💖💚💖💚Congratulations Bloggers 💚💖💚💖

There’s no questions or need to thank me. I also don’t require you to nominate others, although I think it would be a kind gesture. 🙂

That’s it for now. Keep an eye out, few more are coming!! Thanks for being awesome y’all!

Splash Play

Today started with a

” You know a check engine light on is an immediate fail, right?”

The people at the echeck stations in Cleveland, Ohio

That’s THE reason to not live in Ohio!

Anyway, here’s the fun there-after. This was much needed. I hope you’re keeping cool if you’re in the hot parts of the globe.

Working On Us – Week 6

This is my interpretation of Beckie’s Mental Mess, weekly “Working on Us” prompt. You can read more about it here🙂

She posted a few questions, as well as a picture (or two). Same as she does every week.

This week I was struggling to choose between the two photos, so I’m going to do the first.


I immediately thought, on that’s simple… Depression is dark and the tree is signifying the way out. The more I stared at it, something deeper happened.

The blackened area is nearly impossible to navigate. That’s what depression feels like. There’s no light, no sense of direction. The darkened area is also enclosed. There’s endless darkness; and it feels like it’s going to swallow us up. There’s no hope, no way out, no running from it, no avoiding it…

It’s then, that depression leads to in bed all day. It leads to no showers for days, little appetite, all that is colorless, dingy, gloomy, and powerless. Our depression doesn’t remove what we have. It merely dims the light around it, with grief, lies, and black.

It takes deliberate persistence to refind that mustard seed of hope. It’s always been there; it’ll always be there. The tree is our roots, the center that keeps us grounded. It’s the truths that shine, despite circumstances.

This was a refreshing reminder that our circumstances don’t remove roots of our true selves.   


Our nightly routine of snuggles and some TV is my favorite part of the day! They enjoy new shows, and old ones, plus lots of movies. We love Frozen, Dumbo, Charlotte’s Web, Trolls, and The Lion King 💖💖💖

This was formulated for The Word of the Day Challenge, Nightly.

Nighty Night ♥

Public Service Announcement

Today’s been brought to you by my Zivah, my Calandra, and “quiet reading time.”

Love every ounce of this☺️☺️☺️

Life’s Beautiful Mess

Zivah’s on the left.
Calandra’s on the right.

We go through this thing called life,

Leaving our fingerprints on all that we do,

Sometimes, it’s helping someone up.

Sometimes, it’s prayer.

In everything, we leave a piece of ourselves.

We go through wonderful moments, and

Awful ones.

Everything blending together, molding and

Creating us into our best selves.

It’s not always clearly defined.

It’s not always pretty.

Sometimes it’s down right messy!!

But, rains fall and wash away what fogs

Our vision.

And the sun spotlights life’s beauty,

Once again.

Emotions & Healing

Situations can be handled in two ways: logically and/or emotionally.

When we continuously face adversity, especially if you’re more of an emotions creature, it’s important to take alittle time for emotional healing.

The state of our mental health is the result of how well, if at all, we handle this adversity. Here’s a few suggestions 🙂

My Nominees Are :

Unpeople Pleasing🤔😂

Can’t say I didn’t take accountability for myself! Haha. Listen though y’all, going through life and trying to please everyone isn’t living… It’s existing. You’re trying to prevent conflict. You’re trying to keep a consistent flow. You’re trying to be cool with everyone.

Is that being honest with yourself? Seems to me, that’s a lifestyle of someone who doesn’t know who he/she is. This individual just blends in with the rest, never ruffling feathers.

Knowing who you are is important. Living your truths is even more important… And guess what, more often than not, truth is going to piss someone off! It’s true. You’re going to decide to set yourself free; and people are absolutely going to hate you for it…

Maybe you’re free from their control.

Maybe you’re free from their munipulation.

Maybe free from abuse, neglect, and misuse.

Whatever you leave behind, and whatever future YOU decide for you, count on making a few enemies.

But, tell yourself it’s ok… Because it is. You’re not living for anyone but yourself anymore. This is especially true for those so called ” close family members and friends”, that never treated you how you deserved.

When you’re doing things right, you’ll have people who disapprove. Those who love you, will get over it. Those who don’t, are finally facing an issue they’ve suppressed for to long and it finally resurfaced. (They should be thanking you!).

But, most importantly, you’ll be living… And that’s the purpose of being alive.

WOTDC: Bucolic

Formulated for the Word of the Day Challenge: bucolic. You can read more about the challenge here:D!

Ohio might not be the first place on your ” Top 10 Places to Vacation”; but, it’s, indeed, full of excitement and charm.

One of the ” must visit ” places is Berlin, Ohio.

I LOVE this area because it’s bucolic simplicity is so very laid-back and relaxing. The shop owners are warm and pleasant, sociable and helpful.

The FOOD, oh my heavens!!!

It’s a wonderful weekend to be had, without a doubt.

Mindful Me

Being mindful of my thoughts.

There’s no actions I can control but my own.

When I interact with others, positive actions extend positive vibes.

When I interact with others, who extend negative vibes, I’m tempted to react with the same. That’s one of my defense mechanisms, obtained simply by being human.

Being mindful of my thoughts,

Negative vibes are a reflection of an individual’s struggle. The struggle could be the heat or some deeper matter. The struggle severity is irrelevant, the outcome is the same.

When I respond to someone’s negative vibes, what struggles am I projecting? What right do I have to add more distaste to their plate? Make their life more unpleasant, as if they needed to feel what it’s like to be walking my path?

They are not I; I am not them. We both are doing our best to take care of some task at hand. Any inconvenience I have isn’t the fault of an individual who happens to cross my path, at the moment…

Likewise, as we both are trying to take care of the track at hand, any inconvenience he/she has isn’t my fault.

There’s no actions I can control but my own, remember.

Should I respond in a positive note, it may change the course of the individual’s day.

It may attract more positive vibes to his/her life.

Having done something kind, the extension of positivity is a reflection of my true self.. Rather than my circumstances.

Extending good vibes, provides a moment of relief to the individual… And maybe he/she really needs that.

Extending positivity is unusual, and will be a moment he/she will remember, quite possibly challenging him/her to do the same.

I am more than my struggles.

I am more than what’s happening to me at the moment.

I am more than what others see, when I’m in public.

I’m the one responsible for what I exert into the universe,

Because no one controls me but me.


As if this was meant just for me. Whew, I sure haven’t been myself lately. For so many reasons, I’m tired and broke and sad and uninspired, uninterested, and unmotivated to do. I’m sure this season will change, but I’m thankful the universe spoke this to me tonight:

WOTDC: Match

Today’s Word of the Day Challenge is, match. You can read about the challenge on this blog, Tales from the Mind of Kristian.

My washer has a mind of it’s own. No two socks are thrown in for a cycle; and the match exists for a dry cycle. Maybe, the socks find a different soulmate. Perhaps, there’s a sacred hidden door in the machine. They crossover to this new and exciting world, and can’t return. Perhaps there’s a sock fairy, and it’s against her kingdom’s law to be seen. She has to be unnoticed when she sweeps in to grab her treasure. I can’t understand, why smelly yucky socks though? I don’t know.

Till next time fairy, don’t take mine.

Nova’s Wise Words

There will come a time, when hurt will shake you.

It’ll carry fear right to your doorstep, waiting for your consent, to pitch camp.

But, this, my dearest friends, is the truth amidst the adversity…

Faith is bigger than fear. You HAVE the faith you need to overcome. You were gifted with it.

When you wake, when you search yourself in the mirror,

Remind yourself:

Where there’s fear,

There’s no room for faith.

Saturday Morning


“Every morning has a unique story. There are always some seeds of possibilities waiting to sprout.” 

― Amit Ray, Peace Bliss Beauty and Truth: Living with Positivity

“Promise Yourself”

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

“Working on Us” Week #4

Every Thursday, Beckie, from Beckie’s Mental Mess, blogs about the dangerously increasing issue of mental health. She includes a few questions and an image, encouraging participants to write of that which sparks inspiration. You can check out last week’s submittions by clicking the link above.

I am usually drawn to the images in the prompt. This week follows suite.


The darkness fell upon her,

Just as the sunset faded to night.

She feared these hours, most.

The voices would soon, resonate,

The secrets of her past, horrors of

Her life, and lies about her character.

Quiet Whispers, subtle and familiar,

The haunting familiarity of endless hours.

Her mistakes visited, stared her in the face.

Anxiety attacked every inch of her weakening confidence.

Insecurities surfaced, breaking her down.

The night brought her storms,

Caging her into solitude, fearful of judgement.

She struggled with facing society, functioning normally,

And do so while sensing judgement from every passerby.

Until, one day, she declared, “Enough!”

She spread her wings

And broke free.

I Can Hear Music

For every sad song, a heart is healing.

For every lullaby, a baby sleeping.

For every melody, a nostalgic feeling.

For every rock song, a soul breaking free.

For the rap music, a soul meets inner city soul.

The love longs dance the romance of a heart.

For every R & B, one is transcending into mindfulness.

For every Jazz song, a small put off club plays for laidback pleasure.

For this gift, that which meets me just where I am,

I give my greatest thanks.
