Happy New Year

Happy New Years everyone! 
I hope you all had a lovely New Years Eve. I wish nothing but happiness and health for you in the upcoming year and the rest we can build together.  

This year has let us know just how small we are and what a big footprint our actions leave. A global pandemic, #BLM, wildfires, earthquakes, polarization in America, Brexit, #endSARS, explosion in Beirut, Poland banning abortion – the list goes on. This year challenged us at every level possible, no shred of humanity inside of us could’ve rested the last 12 months. A year that divided but also brought together. A year after which we should ask ourselves: Did I learn from this? 

We cannot change what happened and what is happening but we have to come out smarter and with a great deal of humility.  

I love you all and want to thank you for another year of being here, reading, contributing to The Poetry Bar and our little community. I hope it will get better and that we will get better. 

Sending love and positive vibes, 
Luna

New Years Vlog

Hello everyone! 

Today is December 31st which is the last day of this shitty, shitty year. A lot has happened and still is happening and this night, the midnight, going from 2020 to 2021 will not change anything but it’s good to have hope and work hard to make 2021 an overall better year for the whole world. 

I decided to film a little vlog for all of you, I actually filmed this in the morning on the day of the earthquake.

After what has happened in Croatia, I didn’t think that I will be editing and posting this because I am still struggling with fear and my nerves after the earthquake. Editing this vlog for a few hours actually helped me to get my mind off of everything and away from the news so I decided to post it. I hope you are going to like it and subscribe to my channel. In the description of the video, you can find the link with all of the information on how to donate to the victims of the earthquake, if you are interested in that. I will actually leave the link here as well:  https://solidarna.hr/urgent-call-for-action-from-croatia-solidarna-foundation-and-fund-5-5/?lang=en

I hope you are all well, safe and happy and that we will all have a good 2021!

I love you all and thank you for another year!

Sending love and positive vibes

Another earthquake? Really 2020? Really?!

I was woken up around 6:30 this morning by another earthquake. If you have been following me for a longer time you know that besides COVID, Croatia has had an awful earthquake that left people homeless, we had a flood and this morning we had another earthquake. If this is a trailer for 2021, I am not buying a ticket for that movie.  

The epicenter was not near my city but it happened at the same time the first earthquake did and my bed started to shake around the room, I heard the furniture shaking, the cracking sound. It was the same as the first time just less intense shaking. I know a lot of people had PTSD after the first earthquake this year and I hope they are okay because this was a strong trigger for everyone. According to the news there were no victims but there are damages.  

There was another minor earthquake about two hours later and this one was scarier for me because I was completely awake and I just felt the couch shaking. Also living on the second floor of an older building during an earthquake does not make shit easier.  

I know that entering 2021 will not change anything or erase this past year but I am looking forward to exiting this year. I am going to make lunch now for me and my mom and I am going to make pasta because pasta is comfort food and makes me feel happier.  

I hope you had a better morning and that you will have a great week. I love you all and alsooooooo this week we will have a new Youtube video! 

Sending love and positive vibes, 
Luna

Poem #347

The ground might sparkle in white, 
but the day is cold and dark. 
The miles aren’t the problem, 
an invisible enemy is directing this night. 
Souls across the world are just 
trying to keep warm in the  
loneliest time of them all.

I am doing better

Good morning and happy Monday!

I am doing better. Thank you all for the support and for the kind comments and messages after my complete meltdown. It really meant a lot to me. The past week has been scary for me because I don’t know how to manage my head and my thoughts sometimes and my mind takes over and I spiral. There were some pretty dark moments, but your girl is doing better. I have three days more of work and then I have some time off which will be useful to me to celebrate the holidays as best as I can in these circumstances and to recharge my batteries.  

I am trying to enter this week and I will try to enter 2021 with a positive attitude because shit already hit the fan this year and I’ve proven to myself I have the capacity to deal with this. Minor issues such as my meltdown are a part of the process for me and I am glad that I am once more showing myself I have the strength to pull myself up and that I am not letting anxiety and negativity to eat me up alive.  

This has been challenging for everyone and the holidays will be challenging as well because this is when loneliness and sadness about not being able to see our family will creep up. I know that people refer to this as a “new normal” and I refuse to use that term. This is something we need to survive and then we can go back to normal. I think that our normal will be more appreciated after this fiasco of a year and that all of us should gain more respect for other people and for nature. If we don’t learn something from 2020, I don’t know what to think. 

I would also like to let you know that the camera equipment I bought has been put to use! I can’t wait to start posting on Youtube, very excited about this. I love having a project, something to focus my mind on.  

Anyways that’s it from me today. I hope you are all doing well, thank you for being so supportive. 

Let me know, what have you been up to this weekend, how was your week and all of that fun stuff! 

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna

Let’s be positive

Hello everyone!

When I publish my own work or thoughts, I always write a looooooooong column-like post and I decided to move all of that to the comments now. I want you to write down in the comments one positive thing that happened to you recently. Times are rough for everyone because of…2020.

Let’s do this now. My positive event recently:

I read Gloria Steinem’s book Revolution from Within and this book really made me question a lot about my life and decisions I have made. It actually gave me the courage I need to start making some big changes.

Now, I want that comment section burning! Let me know what positive thing happened to you recently and let’s spread good vibes 🙂
