Through a veil


Loving the contrast between the feminine tulle dress and veils and the tough hardware harnesses!
I love juxtaposition of themes and fabrics to switch up an outfit or a mood.
Chiffon with crushed velvet, or plaid with jersey, or silk with leather...
So many possibilities.

Again, this scenery makes me wanna go abroad and lie in the green pastures to watch the sun set. But of course I've better things to do than to daydream.
Although if I close my eyes and let the sunlight shine on me, I might allow myself 5 mins to dream of all the possibilities and how the uncut grass would tickle my shins and how my dress might get stuck a few times as I walk in the wild field and how the wind would smell and how-
oh, 5 mins up.

Okay okay back to work!

Writing from the heart.

One secret I'll let you in on.
One that's been keeping me alive this far.
One thing that sustains me when I'm at my wit's end.
One reminder when I get bad days and bad moods.
One precious important thing that keeps me going even when I feel like giving up, and especially when I feel so tired that I can't give or love or it seems that time won't heal things.

Here it is:
I have my own source of love that never runs out.

Never ever runs out.
I may forget to look there when I'm all overwhelmed in my situations but it's always there for me.

And how can I let you in on my secret without telling you how to, too?

You have your own source of love, you know.
In that space in your heart where God is.
God is love, and so you'll find love when you find God.
Dig deep, it may be hard finding it first when you're hurting but you will find it.
A love so real and so tangible. A love that gives you strength after you get weary. A love that encourages you after you face disappointments. A love that clears the dark.

It pains me seeing people so down and out.
I wish I could hug every single one of them.
I wish the love I have from God can gush out of me and reach out to them.
But sometimes it's best that they discover their own supply of never-ending love so they will always have it.. for I may not be able to help every single one of them and I won't always be here but that love? It will always be.

Also I saw on a website some pretty funny but honest facts that make you go : 'Soo darn right!'

1. I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? **** it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn’t answer? Drop the phone and run away?

25. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

Last one that is the most omg-so-true thing:

32. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey – but I’d bet my bottom dollar everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

Something about love...

How long does it take for you to fall in love?

Some people swear that it's a gradual process of finding out about someone and growing fonder and somewhere along the line, chemistry comes into play.
Yet some scientist insists that it only takes 1 fifth of a second to fall in love! (And we all thought we were deeper than that)

Well I'm not sure about the falling in love part yet and shall not pretend to be an expert, lest you waste time reading my blogpost thinking I might provide you answers to love.

One thing though, that I've discovered is something so shockingly simple and honest and quite common-sensical (did you realize that if you're using those dictionaries online that correct you as you type, the moment you put a '-' in the middle of a made-up word like commonsensical, it becomes a normal word! Oh wait, is there such a word as commonsensical in the first place? I thought I just made that up. *shrugs*) about a truth fact moral base of any starting relationships and all that woo-ha:

Being in a relationship won't make you any happier if you weren't happy to begin with.

Happiness begins from within and yes, being in relationships might give you a temporary high but if you were sad to begin with, being in a relationship is not really going to help after a while. Because then you will start relying on the person in the relationship to make you happy and all sorts of expectations will arise and come on, we're but humans and not perfect and so, disappointment might come and then stormy seas and rocky road for the relationship and you get all angry.

When this revelation came to me, I was so caught off-guard, I just sat there. Then I went nodding my head and going 'hmmmmm' because people tend to think oh if only I'm with this person or that person or in a relationship and then I will finally be happy but no, you gotta be happy with yourself and your life first before the relationship begins!

Now go out there with this nugget of wisdom and love yourself and love your partner and be truly happy :)
