Writer’s Log: Eating. PET scan. And more eating.

Happy Monday to you all ❤

It was a long weekend but overall went well. My mom PET scan took extremely long, we waited for almost 5 hours and there was a problem there with a woman and so the scan took even longer than it should… It was a long day. I hope that the PET scan came out okay.
On the way home, we stopped at a pancake house and I got a gluten-free and vegan pancake which was amazing and I was so happy to see my mom finally eating something, and it seems like she truly enjoyed herself ❤

Other than that I kept decluttering and cleaning the house. From the mountain of dishes, hehe and I finally decluttered my makeup which I’ve been trying to declutter for a long time. I still got to declutter my makeup more but for now, I did okay 😀

Today with all the waking up late, cleaning and decluttering I was also been able to sit down and write for a bit and eventually I wrote about 980+ words. I will not win Camp Nanowrimo, but I am happy to just sit down an write again.

In another note, My husband and I are sooo excited to see End Game OMG, only 2 more days (WOW!). I can’t believe that 24.4.19 is only 2 more days away and we are trying to guess how and what will happen, and trying to ignore all spoilers that run around the social media. OMG!!! Can’t wait.

Are you excited about End Game?

That is all for today’s post and I will see you again tomorrow.

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

Writer’s Log: Cleaning

It’s almost weekend! Hello everyone, hope you are all having a good day and you are ready for the weekend ❤

Writer’s long, today I was starting to feel better finally, and it gave the energy to something around the house. I woke up at 7 am looked at the clock and went straight back to sleep until noon and it felt so good to sleep that late, hehe. After taking my meds and some Camomile tea, I started organizing our kitchen cabinets and changed things a bit.

It feels much better now and I felt strong enough to tackle the mountain of dishes. I haven’t written anything today and that’s okay because I was creative with some planning and doodling. I’ve read from my Writer magazine, highlighted a few things that inspired me. The only thing that I am a bit sad about is that I haven’t written my dream in my journal… I had such a great dream and I remember the good feeling of it and I regret not writing it done.

From tomorrow we are entering a holiday here in Israel, called Passover. Tomorrow is the Eve of Passover and we are going to celebrate the holiday at my husband’s parents so I will not be at home at all almost all day so there won’t be any post tomorrow. Btw, this will be my first vegan Passover in years, this will be so weird for me, but I know I will have lots of yummy things to eat 😀

Today was the first time in a long while that I managed to do 30 minutes meditating and it was so calming and energizing, I love the high after that, lol.

My goals for the weekend are decluttering my makeup, I have too much and I almost ware none, haha and I want to keep decluttering the closet and maybe our bedroom as well 🙂

What are your plans for the weekend?

That is all for today’s post and I will see you again on Saturday.

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

Writer’s Log: I’m still sick

Hello everyone, hope you all had a wonderful Tuesday ❤

Today’s post will be very short 😀 If you’ve been following me on my Instagram then you know that I’m still sick for almost 2 months. I feel exhausted, hehe.  Tomorrow I’m going to my doctor to see what she can do about all of this (again), I do hope that she won’t give me more antibiotics, I’ve already taken too much.

Today my fever went up so I’ve mostly been sleeping and not doing anything else, I definitely wasn’t creative today, but there’s always tomorrow, right? 😉

Hope you all having a good day and that you are all taking care of yourselves, see you in my next post tomorrow.

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

Writer’s Log: Another Minimalism Challenge

Good evening everyone, hope you are doing well ❤

While back I’ve written a post about minimalism and how I want to declutter our home 😉 The Minimalism Challenge (Game). I did this “game or challenge” twice and I decluttered almost 1000 items from our home, small and big. To some, this may seem like too much and to others, it’s a very small number but to us, it wasn’t enough, lol.

So I thought that I will do it again. Last time I decluttered about 50 books and this time I want to try and declutter more. I love books and I love to hoard them, but some of the books are just props in our home, I will never read them again so it’s time for them to find a new home and so our other items that will be leaving 😀

I know for a fact that while I love the stuff in our home and they do make me happy they still overcrowd me in my every day and I feel trapped by our stuff. I don’t like that feeling and I know I can change this feeling.

So… Everyday from yesterday I will take an item, 2, 3 and so on, and let them go ❤ and I will let you know how it goes.

Now to other updates…

As part of my de-stressing, I’ve started doing meditations twice a day, every day… Well, this was only my second day of doing it, hehe but I do intend on keeping this habit. I feel much better every time I meditate, I think that by the act of taking a moment to myself, breathe and just listen to the silence really makes me think of what I truly want and try to find some answers and ideas… You know, like when you are in the shower and suddenly a wonderful idea comes to your mind that is how these meditation are to me (so far).

Now about the most important thing, being creative 😀

Yesterday I did some blackouts on a writer magazine and I loved that. This small act just let my mind run through the pages I’ve printed and found random words that by the end of it just made me smile and happy, how amazing is that. I love the part that starts with the word writers and ends with the words what if. (click on the image to enlarge it if you want)

Blackout, Coffee n' Notes

“Writers create their story often fail, the trick quirky ideas, brainstorming what if.”

This weird meshed-up line is so inspiring to me and while I mediated today it lit up my thoughts and the images that ran through my mind while I was in deep meditation.

About my own writing…

I also wrote a bit after I got home from my mom’s doctor appointment and it felt almost addictive to just sit there and write… Wow, how I missed this feeling.
Overall it was a creative day which I am very happy about and I declutter two things today, yey 😀 so I am doing good with the challenge 😉

See you tomorrow but for now,

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

Writer’s Log

Hello everyone, hope you are all doing okay ❤

After lots of thinking, planning and lots of journaling, I came to the conclusion that I don’t like where my life is heading. I basically stopped creating in any form and rarely even writing. I stopped writing/editing, reading, drawing, playing music… and I focused all my energy on helping my family, my friends and basically stopped everything else. I am telling you the complete truth so you’ll know where I am coming from and understand where I want to be. And maybe even go through this journey with me.

I miss our connection and I want to bring it back so we will always have this community and the outlet to seek help and try to overcome life’s obstacles together.

So here it comes… Are you ready?

I am starting a huge series here at Coffee n’ Notes, that will focus on a few major things in my life that I want to change and the main goal is to be able to create again:

  • Create more – Writing, blogging, drawing, doodling, or anything else I want to create.
  • Meditate every day twice a day, and to slowly be able to de-stress and breathe better.
  • Consum less tv, and social media.
  • Declutter more, our home and lives. Living with less clutter and chaos has become one of my main goals this year, after writing.
  • Eat better, and taking care of my mind and body.

I’ve been sick for almost 2 months and due to this illness I became vegan again and you know what? I feel so much better. I know it’s just been two weeks but I eat better food and I feel much better than before.

I spoke to a specialist who said that due to my none stop stressful living, I get sick a lot and I can do even more harm to my body and to my mind, so I must change and that is what I working on right now.

This will be hard for me but I need this change in my life, I can’t give myself to others as much as I do, I am burning up all my energies and at the end of the day, I’m left with nothing. I need to trust this process and this journey to lead me where I need to be so that I will be able to be the better version of myself and by doing so I will be able to help my family even more.

I want to do the small things every single day that will slowly build these habits I want to build.

So… Every day from today 14.4.19 until 6.6.19 I will post about my progress and how I find my creativity again ❤

I have tons to do with my mom this month and on May but as I said before I need to find my way in all this chaos. I will try to keep it short and to the point in my next posts.

I hope this series will not be spam in your reader and if so I am sorry in advance, but this is something I have to do for myself and share with the world these moments… good and bad and how I truly going through things in my life.

I hope you don’t mind coming along with me in this weird journey but even though this will be hard for me (really hard, I can tell you now) hopefully, it will lead me to where I need to be and create the books I was meant to create

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤
