"Loving you is easy cause you’re beautiful" -MINNIE RIPERTON
These lyrics are so simple in a way. Is it really easy to instantly love something beautiful? Maybe… maybe so. I’m on a spiritual journey to love and accept myself. And it’s really hard because I am a very self-critical person. I judge myself so much and so harshly at times. And there are times when I just hate myself. To be honest, I don’t consider myself as beautiful in any way. Sometimes I compare myself (body, mind, spirit, soul, face, career, intelligence etc) to so many other people. And often times when I do this I am the one who comes out as the loser. However, I’m trying to change that now. And it’s going to be a long, hard journey to stop these habits and acquire new habits that are positive and healthy for my self. All in all, I am NOT at the point where I consider MYSELF as BEAUTIFUL. I always feel that I’m lacking. And when these lyrics popped in my head, I suddenly realized that it’s hard to learn to love yourself when you don’t even consider or see yourself as beautiful. I know that I’m not special or pretty, and it’s okay. What’s not okay is the fact that I don’t consider myself as beautiful … .just as I am.
"Worry about loving yourself, instead of loving the idea of other people loving you."
In a matter of hours on Friday, Typhoon Haiyan completely devastated parts of the central Philippines. It was one of the strongest storms ever recorded. The death toll is estimated up to 10,000 with hundreds of thousands more displaced. The country has declared a “state of calamity.”
To all our…
Dreams that are destined to be mine, Come and let’s fly away together! *blows*
I took this picture with my camera-phone. It’s not that fancy at all. I did a few editing with the lights to make it look more glowy and magical. I like how it turned out. However, I just wished I took a better shot with a more advanced camera. Also, the angle is a bit off because I was just playing around with my camera. As such, i didn’t really bother with angles and stuff. However, I do like it. It’s whimsical and so alive. :D
I had a clear idea when I started out editing this photo. However, it came out all wrong especially the flowers. It’s a clear sign that it was poorly photo-shopped. The flower’s shadows and textures are all wrong. I had a hard time editing and making it “FIT” with the coffee. However, I do like the overall lighting of the picture. The flower, however, has got to go.
