Monday Motivation #54

Even if you're having a bad day or going through tough times, please don't lose hope. For tomorrow is always a brand new day. A new day that is rife with potential, opportunity, and joy. Life can certainly be difficult at times, but reassure yourself with the knowledge that there will always be better days ahead. Remember, tomorrow is a new day, and another chance to make the most out of life.

CIB Sunday #17 – ‘The Evil Within’

The Evil Within is absolutely one of my favorite video games of all time. It was the first game I ever played on the PlayStation 4 system, and for that, it will also forever have a special place in my heart. I still have very fond memories of this title, but my attachment to it isn't just a result of sentimentality. There are a great many reasons why this particular game is so good, and I'll be going over some of the main reasons today.

Feline Friday #53 – Thankful for the Kitties!

With this being the season of giving and thankfulness, I think it's only fitting I talk a bit about what I'm grateful for this year. Of course, I'm incredibly thankful for my family as a whole. But, there are a few particular furry family members I greatly appreciate; my four sweet kitties, Zen, Kash, Karma, and Bell. I believe that fur babies aren't talked about as much when it comes to this sort of feeling, so I just want to say how my cats have made a difference in everyday life for me.

Today, let's all take a moment to consider the parts of life we're thankful for. It's true that we will always encounter obstacles and hardships throughout life, but even on our worst days, and in the toughest times, there are so many things to give thanks for. Just to be alive and breathing is such an amazing experience, and a wonderful opportunity. We can choose to dwell on the negative parts of life, or we can concentrate on those that are positive and enrich our lives.

Feline Friday #52 – Thanksgiving for Fur Babies!

Do you typically celebrate Thanksgiving with your fur babies? If so, what do you do to make the day special for them? Do you prepare them a grand Thanksgiving themed meal? Do they get showered in even more love and affection than usual? I’m wondering because the American Thanksgiving holiday is coming up very quickly.

It's okay to take a break if you need one. Sometimes, we just need a bit of time to relax, rest, and refresh. This is necessary for all aspects of our health and well-being. Powering through mental, emotional, or physical exhaustion can easily lead to burn out and make our overall well-being even worse. So, please remember, take time to rest when you truly need it. That's essential for every factor of your health and happiness.

Feline Friday #51 – Zenny, the Cute Sass Queen!

I LOVE this picture of Zenny and Bell! It's so rare that our kitty girls do anything together, much less rest beside one another. So, this particular picture isn't just adorable; it also represents an unlikely, but sweet moment between our favorite girl cats. And for that, this recent picture already has a special place in my heart.

CIB Sunday #16 – ‘The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan’

'Man of Medan' is the first entry in 'The Dark Pictures Anthology' series, a saga of horrifying, stand-alone tales. It was developed by Supermassive Games, the studio behind the smash-hit 'Until Dawn.' I played 'Until Dawn' when it first came out and absolutely loved the game. So, of course, I was very excited to see what the developers had in store next. But, does 'Man of Medan' live up to the legacy of Supermassive Games' past hit? I certainly believe so, and there are a few key reasons why.

With everything going on in the world right now, and some of the events that are coming up, it's especially important to look after ourselves and our overall well-being.

Feline Friday #49 – Beggars’ Night Kitties!

Today is Beggars' Night, also known as Trick-or-Treat night for many. It also happens to be the day before the official holiday of Halloween! So, whether you're staying at home to cuddle with your fur babies and loved ones for a spooky movie night, or going out to collect the most candy you can, I hope you have a fantastically spooktacular night!

I know many of us have had to deal with teasing and harassment over the hobbies we dearly love. People may say you're "too old" to participate in certain hobbies. They may accuse you of being silly and childish for doing so. But, just remember, you should never feel ashamed of your hobbies. They are part of you and make up who you are as a person. Don't feel ashamed, embarrassed, or sorry for the things you love. Continue doing what you love, always.

Feline Friday #48 – Rest and Relaxation! Take Another Cue from Kitties!

At the current pace of today's world, it's so important to remember our own health and take time for ourselves every once in a while. And I think cats are a great example of what this looks like. They sleep and rest all throughout the day, every day, and while many of us may not have the luxury to do quite that, we can still learn a valuable lesson from our fur babies.

It's okay to still be planning and thinking about the future. It's alright to still be figuring things out. We all go through life at our own pace. So, take all the time you need and take life on at your own pace. Rest assured, you'll have everything figured out when you're ready to be at that point.

Feline Friday #47 – Kitties Watching Spooky Movies!

Fall is easily my favorite season of all, with an abundance of activities I adore. However, my favorite activity may be settling down with my family and cats to watch a creepy movie perfect for Halloween. Not only do I get to watch a spooktacular horror movie, I get to do so with my favorite people and fur babies around me.

Even on the toughest days, remember that you're not alone. Other people are there for you and care about you, even if you don't realize it. There will always be those who love and care for you. There will always be those who understand what you're going through. Forever hold onto that knowledge and know that you are both supported and loved.

CIB Sunday #15 – ‘Corpse Party: Back to School Edition’

'Corpse Party' is a series I'd heard about for a long time, being a big fan of horror video games. However, the games were only available on Steam and PS Vita for a long time, and I didn't have access to either back then. A few years ago, I was browsing 3DS video games on Amazon, when I saw that a remake of the original 'Corpse Party' was available for pre-order. I ended up being gifted the game that same year for Christmas, and of course, started playing it right away. Did it live up to all the hype, though? I certainly think so. There are several key reasons why the game is so good, a few of which I'll be going over in this post. Read on to find out more!

Feline Friday #46 – Kitty Costumes!

I know we still have a while to go until Halloween, but I'm just wondering, do you dress up your pets for the occasion? Or have you ever done so? I'd love to put cute costumes on my kitties, but they would be so mad, haha. It's super fun to think about different costume themes and ideas for the cats, though.
