Monday Motivation #78

I just want to remind you that you're never too old to follow your dreams or pursue a goal. It doesn't matter if you're in your 20's or 50's; you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. We each only have one life to live, and there are limitless possibilities of what we can do with that time. So, never let something like age hinder you. You're capable of such amazing things at any age, and you can achieve them as long as you put in the time/effort for them.

Just a Bite

Fangs gleam in the dense shadows, Snow white stained with copper crimson Jaw gaping as unquenchable thirst takes over Ruby eyes glisten like gems in the distance, Tracking every single step, each tiny trace of movement

Feline Friday #77 – What I Love about Kitties!

As a cat lover and parent, there are a great number of things I adore about kitties. I think they're the most precious, cutest little animals ever (although, all animals are great 😊)! You might be wondering, though; just what do I love about cats so much? Well, where do I even begin, haha!

A true friend will treat you with care, respect, and kindness. They'll consider your feelings when choosing their words and actions. So if a friend constantly makes you feel down, is critical to the point of just being cruel, or purposely says/does things they know will make you upset, that person isn't a true friend and they don't deserve your friendship. You should never be made to feel lesser by the people around you, and if that's the case, it may be time to remove them from your life. Remember, you deserve care, respect, kindness, and so many other wonderful things.

To All the Moms!

Happy Mother's Day!!! Mothers are truly amazing and deserve to be recognized for all they do every single day of the year. Please, if you have a maternal figure in your life, make sure they know they're loved, respected, and valued all year round. Today on Mother's Day, do the same exact thing. Let the moms in your life know just how incredibly special they are.

Stark Reality

Thoughts swirling downward in a spiral of doubt Below the fractured surface, darkness quietly rumbles It waits for the opportune moment to strike, Its serpentine tendrils squeezing around my tender flesh Held in a crushing vice grip, despair infects my mind Every trace of hope slowly trickles out, Scarlet rivulets fading into nothingness

Feline Friday #76 – Grateful for All the Kitties!

I’m very grateful to have all my kitties around and here with me. I often think about how different my life would be if I didn’t have them, and I can safely say it wouldn’t be for the better. I love my kitties so very much and love that I can be with them every single day. Please, give your fur babies some extra cuddles and pets for me; they deserve it!

Today is a new day. It's another chance to spend time with loved ones, indulge in the hobbies we adore, and just enjoy life. We won't always have that opportunity, so it's important to make the most of our time here while we have it. Do whatever will bring you happiness, joy, and peace of mind on this particular day. Always seize the day and make the absolute most of it.

You are amazing, gorgeous, and worthy just as you are. You don't need to change to suit the expectations and standards of others. If they can't appreciate you for who you are, then they don't deserve you. Because you're beautiful just the way you are now. Remember that, and know you're worth it. You're worthy of love, respect, and so many other wonderful things, solely for being who you are.

Feline Friday #74 – Photographs from the Cat Tower!

This week's Feline Friday feature is going to be another simple and chill post! A few months ago, I won a giveaway from Hauspanther, a cat themed retailer that also promotes other kitty centric businesses. I ended up with an amazing Mjau Haus cat tower from Mjau Home (which you can see my kitties lounging on in the pics below)! And on that note, today's post has lots of adorable pictures of my cats enjoying the tower!

You might be wondering where to start, how you can make a positive difference. Well, there are actually many things you can do, and many of those ways are fairly simple. So today, I'm going over easy, simple steps you can take to protect the environment!

Remember, you're never too old to enjoy the hobbies you love, and you shouldn't feel ashamed for loving them. Hobbies don't have to be productive or teach you anything, either. And hobbies aren't a waste of time if they don't offer those things. The most important part is that you genuinely love the hobbies you indulge in and they make you happy. You participate in those hobbies, not them. So, don't let other people shame you or put you down for doing the things you love.

Monday Motivation #73

Life can be very overwhelming at times. It can be difficult to face the future with optimism. It's easy to feel like the entire universe is against you. Take a deep breath, relax your mind, and believe that it will be okay. You're strong and resilient enough to make it through anything life sends your way. You have the power to craft the bright future you've been wanting for yourself. The world isn't working against you, and even when you feel alone, there will always be other people thinking of you. You've got this. And things will be okay. Just believe.

Feline Friday #72 – A Crumbling Kitty Castle!

If you've been regularly following my Feline Friday feature, you may remember I had a post about a Valentine's Day themed castle I got for my kitties back in February. This castle is meant to be a big scratching post for kitties, with cardboard walls and decorations completing the castle aesthetic. The top platform and bottom interior platform are also made of cardboard, but it's the corrugated kind that's meant to stand up to active, feisty kitties. Well, it apparently couldn't stand up to all four of my kitties for very long, haha!

Please consider how your words and actions impact others. They can be very powerful tools, and used in a positive way, can make a positive difference in the lives of others. However, words and actions have the power to achieve the opposite as well. It's up to us to be responsible and considerate in how we act, along with how we treat others. So, please, always stop to think how your words or actions might affect the people around you. We have the ability to leave a positive or negative impact on the world and its people.

Happy Easter! I know it may be different for many of us this year due to the pandemic, but I hope you have fun and stay safe no matter what your plans for the day are. I also hope you're able to connect with loved ones in some way, even if it's through a Zoom or Skype call.

Feline Friday #71 – Kitties and Their (Random) Toys!

If you have cats, you probably know very well by now that kitties can and will play with just about anything! This is certainly true with my own kitties, as they play with a numerous amount of mundane household objects like they’re actual cat toys. These items include socks, bags, boxes, strings, and pom pom balls, all of which my cats absolutely love.

Please treat all people with kindness, respect, understanding, and consideration. We're all human beings, and all of us deserve to be treated as such. We need to work to create a world where all people are able to live with peace, love, and equality. No more hate. So, let's band together against hate and work alongside one another to make a world we can all be proud of.

Feline Friday #70 – Kitty Detectives!

We’re finally in the spring season now, which means warmer weather will hopefully be on the way. I can say for sure that it’s already brought plenty of rain, though, at least where I live! In fact, it rained so much earlier this week that the basement drain couldn’t keep up with the continuous influx of water, and unfortunately, this led to the basement flooding. The kitties were really alarmed by everything going on, and being the curious cats they are, had to come investigate. They kept going in and out of the basement, trying to figure out what was happening and what the heck we were doing.
