Back in My Cocoon and Ready to Write from the Heart Again

Hey there, lovely souls of Mariposa's Tales! 🦋

After a long hiatus exploring the vast expanse of the world outside my comfort space, I am back in my cozy cocoon, ready to spread my wings and pour my heart out once more through the written word.

There's something magical about returning to familiar surroundings, isn't there? The scent of my favorite candle, the soft hum of my laptop, and the gentle embrace of my worn-in writing chair all welcome me back like old friends. It's here, in this sanctuary of creativity, that I find solace and inspiration to weave stories that resonate with you, my dear readers.

As I settle back into the rhythm of daily life within these comforting walls, I am excited to delve into the depths of my imagination and share with you the musings, reflections, and tales that have been swirling in my mind during my absence. There's a wellspring of emotions and ideas waiting to be captured in ink and pixels, and I can't wait to embark on this journey of self-expression once more.

So, dear friends, stay tuned for a wave of new content coming your way soon. Get ready to immerse yourselves in the beauty of words, the power of storytelling, and the warmth of connection that we share through this digital space. Together, let's explore the landscapes of imagination and emotion, and let our spirits dance in the realm of creativity.

Thank you for your unwavering support and for being a part of this wonderful community. Here's to more moments of inspiration, contemplation, and discovery as we continue this adventure together at Mariposa's Tales.

With love and gratitude,
Mariposa 🌟

Heard the saying, “One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.”?

Well, today is that day!

Mariposa Learns to Write Again

I want to write again.
I need to write again.
So here I am finding myself trying to write again.
This place has always been my comfort for years now. And lately I find myself reading old posts and I can't help but smile and be proud of myself. Wow. I have been through a lot and I have achieved a lot. So many things just to be grateful for. In a way, this blog had been a memoir of Mariposa.
Then I have this light bulb moment. If I want to write again, I write about my life and make a memoir. Well, sort of! Yet, I am so inclined to write through  my own fiction. As they say, it is easier to get to the truth by not claiming that you are speaking it. For there are some things that can be said in fiction that can never be said in a memoir. So here, I will attempt to put down all the good things I ought to have done...and try to leave out the bad ones I did do well.
Reading through my posts here you may discover that I never had any fixed aim before my eyes and that my system (for the lack of better word) has been to glide away unconcernedly on the stream of life, trusting to the wind wherever it led.

After all these are not the memoirs of an empress, nor of a queen. These are memoirs of another kind.

Home Makeover

It's the new year! And we all want to have a new look. For my case, I want a home makeover.
Yes, you read it right. I want to give my home a new look for this an acceptable cost of course! So just exactly how do I do that?

I can opt for full renovation, which can be very pricey. I can opt for changing the color of the entire, which is still pricey. Or I can just to some facelifts like taking care of the house interior.

So I tried to make some research on house interior repainting and got to Hingham Massachusetts painters which allowed me learn a lot about interior painting at an economical cost. I admit it was quite educational for me and for one, I learned that letting the professionals do the work make not necessarily spell huge cost but rather can be economical and can make you save some money in the long run not to mention being able to keep some standard and quality of work done.

So...that's it. I am giving my home some facelifts. I am checking on some palettes over the weekend. I plan to make the whole interior versatile in a way that a few change of curtains, and flowers and vases would allow me to change the look of my home interior all year round...since there is no way I can change the hues several times a year, you know!

Needless to say, I am very excited! It feels like shopping for some makeups and going to the salon for have my hair and nails done. Haha, I know it is quite an analogy but my vanity always gets extended to my abode and my car. That is how I roll. ***wink

Happy new year guys!
