My Songs of September 2021

Image
September was a month that full of changes, work wise. I had to keep readapting to the endless new changes. Truthfully, I was mentally exhausted because I needed time to process all these changes. Sadly, I have yet to get enough time to process all things that were happening around me. My anxiety also grew over time because I was, and still am afraid with all these changes and uncharted waters. Please pray for me so that I am strong and resilient enough to navigate these uncharted waters? 🙏 Johnny Stimson - Smile This song kept popping up in my Instagram and I had to give it a listen. And oh boy, did I love this song a little bit too much! 💓 The timing could not be more apt as I was struggling with all the changes and started to lose my smile 😢 Jamie Miller - Here's Your Perfect This song was on my YouTube recommendation for few weeks before I started to giving it a listen.

A Wave of Dreams by Kamalia Hasni Title: A Wave of Dreams Author: Kamalia Hasni Publisher: Meraki Press Number of Pages: 145 Unlike An Ocean of Grey where my heart bled with every word in the book, A Wave of Dreams gave me that happy tingly feeling which made me smile throughout the whole book.

An Ocean of Grey by Kamalia Hasni Title: An Ocean of Grey Author: Kamalia Hasni Publisher: Meraki Press Number of Pages: 159 I have yet to go through a heartbreak and I pray that I will never have to because I seriously don't think I can handle it. I am a fragile person and I have an extremely fragile heart. But oh boy, did my heart bleed reading this book 😭 "It was like being in a foreign country, And hearing someone converse in your mother tongue. They all finally made sense." -from breakup songs - And in the moment when your eyes meet mine, maybe we too will revisit our dreams, And wonder what our life, You and me together could have been." -from la la land -  "loving you is a habit that still needs conscious  effort to grow out of." -from habits - "To be haunted by the memories of loving and being loved, by the memories of a beautiful alternate future, following me like a lonely shadow every time I wake up alone, every time I see two peop
