Monday Motivation #95

Remember to enjoy each and every day to the fullest. Our time here is limited, and we never know when that time might end. So, do the things you love, spend time with the people you love, and lead a life that makes you truly happy.

Feline Friday #90 – The Taco Truck Has Hit Hard Times!?

If you've been following along with my Feline Friday posts, you may recall I bought an adorable taco truck scratcher house a few weeks ago. You may also remember it still being in fairly good condition then. Well, that's no longer quite the case! 😅 As I like to explain it, the taco truck has hit a bit of a rough patch recently, and the fish tacos just haven't been selling as well. That's the type of thing that'll happen with four kitties using it, though!

Monday Motivation #94

Just know that you don't have to put up with others treating you poorly or taking advantage of your kindness. It may not seem like it right now, but with both platonic and romantic relationships, there are people out there who will treat you right. There's never just one option for a friend, partner, or acquaintance. So, if there are people in your life consistently making you experience negative emotions/thoughts, distance yourself from them and move on to better things.

Monday Motivation #93

It's easy to become discouraged seeing other people who can create art, play sports, make music, cook, and do a variety of other activities so well. You may feel as if you don't measure up or have a special talent like they do. However, you're brimming with certain talent and limitless potential. You just need to find the talents and skills that are right for you.

Monday Motivation #92

Know that your feelings are completely valid, always. Your emotions are your own, and they're important because they're important to you. You have the right to feel whatever emotions you feel at any given time. And you're not wrong for feeling a certain way.

Two Halves

In the depths of my soul, There are two separate halves, Forcibly colliding and blending Into a jumbled, crumbling mess

Feline Friday #89 – Two Cute Grooming Kitty Bros!

Two of my kitties, Karma and Kash, are brothers, so they've always been fairly close and enjoy being around one another. Being siblings from the same litter, they also happen to look out for each other. This includes making sure the other cat is well groomed and clean. If Karma gets anywhere near Kash, he almost always takes it as an invitation to start grooming his brother. It's easily one of the cutest and most endearing things I've ever seen.

Monday Motivation #91

You are not broken, and you don't need to be fixed. You're wonderful just the way you are. You are worthy of love and kindness. Remember that you don't need to change who you are to suit others. Be who you are.

Falling

I swore I could see the moon, Majestic and beautiful, Reflected in your hazel eyes At that moment, I wanted nothing more Than to fall into the moon, Drowning in its lunar embrace

Monday Motivation #90

It's inevitable that certain aspects of life will change over time, but we don't have to change how we tackle life. Remember to smile, try to laugh as much as possible, seek out the little joys in life, no matter how small, and always try to have fun. There are many parts of life that aren't fun or joyful, parts that challenge us. However, we can still revel in the positive experiences we have and make the most out of our time here.

Breathing an Inferno

Page after page fills, a manifestation of the intrusive words Keeping me awake at night, nudging me to finally speak up Ever so gently, their blazing heat embraces my soul, urging me on My fingers caress the sea of flames, breathing an inferno to life

Feline Friday #88 – A Cute Taco Truck for Cute Kitties!

We haven't had it long, but the cats already seem to love it and spend lots of time lounging in their little truck (making yummy fish tacos for their kitty friends, I like to imagine).

Monday Motivation #89

No matter what other people say or do, your inner brilliance can never be diminished. You are always shining, constantly casting light onto others. You being here does make a difference in the world, as you brighten it with your mere presence. Never stop shining. Never stop being your amazing self.

Feline Friday #87 – A Poem for the Lazy Cat Days of Summer!

In my opinion, hot or rainy summer days are perfect for staying at home and relaxing indoors. So, for today's Feline Friday post, I'd like to share a poem I wrote about lazy days spent cuddling with my kitties.

Monday Motivation #88

Always try to empathize with others and make a genuine effort to understand their situation. You never know what another person may have going on in their life, what they might be dealing with. And you may not truly be able to understand until you get to know them better or experience their situation yourself. But, that's why rather than pass judgement on others, we should treat them with kindness and understanding instead. Show them tolerance and acceptance.

Feline Friday #86 – Look at This Cute Kashy Boy!

For today's Feline Friday post, I wanted to share a few recent pictures of Kash. He's just so cute, floofy, and photogenic!

Monday Motivation #87

Throughout our lives, we go through many different friendships, some of them long lasting, and others not. Of course, this is perfectly normal, and it's inevitable that not every friendship will continue. But, it's all the more reason to hold onto the true, lasting friends we have and treasure them. Make sure they know you love and appreciate them. Be grateful to have these friends in your life and convey that gratitude to them every chance you get.

Mind Block

I try to force the thoughts together, Hoping they'll form a cohesive metaphor It's all for naught, My mind suffering a drought Whatever stories I have inside, Simply refuse to come to life

Feline Friday #85 – Karma, the King of Cuteness!

Today, I'm going to keep Feline Friday as chill as possible and just share a few recent pictures of Karma! I took these pictures the other day, while he was lounging on top of the kitty tower and reveling in the warm sunlight. And I knew I had to share these pictures with all of you, because Karma is absolutely adorable in them (of course, he's always cute, though)!

Memories of Myth

Deep within a forest Lined with crimson trees, There lies a deep cave Stretching for miles and miles, Lit from the glow of gentle crystals, It goes on and on

Remember that it's okay to take a break, especially if you're feeling burnt out or worn down. You don't always have to be creating, working, doing, or generally being productive. It's perfectly alright and understandable to take a break from your more productive activities and take time to rest/relax instead.

Feline Friday #84 – Zenny, the Blanket Burrower!

If you have any fur babies of your own, then you definitely know they each have a unique personality, complete with adorable (and sometimes) strange quirks. Well, for whatever reason, Zen loves to burrow under blankets with her humans. There have been many times when I was sitting on my bed to work, play video games, etc., and Zenny suddenly appeared, trying to shove my blanket away so she could curl up with me.

The Last of Us, Together

Through seasons present and past, I walk on, gripping your hand The two of us, Surviving together

Monday Motivation #85

If we become too engrossed in the past, it can have a detrimental impact on our present and future lives. Reference the past for knowledge gained and lessons learned, but don't live in it. The simple truth is the past is in the past; we can't change what's already happened, no matter how we try. But, you still have a whole life ahead of you to focus on and build.

Feline Friday #83 – Update on the Backyard Kittens!

If you read last week's Feline Friday post, then you know about the litter of kittens that's recently taken residence in our yard. After they first appeared, my family and I saw them quite a bit over the next few days. The kittens gathered around our picnic table, rested on the playset, and even ate food/water my brother brought out for them (while he was standing nearby). And at the time, they surprisingly stuck around long enough for him to snag this adorable picture.
