If I Die Young

See The World Through My Iris

“Your casket slowly went down; the deeper it went, the more distant it felt. It happened in two different worlds, separated only by a thin veil that waved back and forth with the wind like slipping in and out of consciousness. They cried, of course, your mother most especially. She was drowned by her own tears; they had to call an ambulance. Your father, (you weren’t very close were you?), went to the car the moment you were lowered. Don’t worry, he cried there.”

If I die young, I would cry for the boy who rests six feet under the ground. The earth would not only swallow a mass of lifeless flesh, but beside him would also rest his hopes and dreams and the future. As the flesh decays, so would the core of his existence; the thing that makes him, him; the thing that made him live.

Live. Life.

Shit Happens


A lot of people become self-destructive when they have nothing to lose. Just think of the movie… Nothing To Lose!

I’ve gone the polar opposite.

For example, one of the things I would have done in the past is crack open a giant block of chocolate and just drown my sorrows in front of a comforting movie. I’m as surprised as anyone when, after contemplating that idea as the best way to move forward, a voice in me said, “is that really going to make anything better?”

Is that chocolate going to help or hinder all the progress I’ve made over the past week? Wouldn’t it be more productive to plan something to fall back on? Bring your priorities and goals into focus right now – it’s as good a time as any.

That’s actually why I’m not very upset. Sure, I’ve had my outburst (or at least my…

Mistakes and what makes them awesome – Part 1

Life, Love, Work

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.” I feel that this is how most of us live our lives. We are so afraid to make mistakes.

But what people don’t realise is that, Maybe, Just maybe –

“Maybe mistakes are what make our fate… without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn’t fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart… and if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away”

I used to live life the same way everyday. I think all of us do the same thing. But what set me apart was that, I knew the…

Keira Knightley Unretouched Topless Photos by Patrick Demarchelier to take a stand on confidence and beauty!

Inessa Vinessa

When I first saw the article ‘Keira Knightley vs Photoshop’ in Huffington Post, I though it was one of those: ‘ohh they retouched me so much, that I don’t recognize myself’, but instead here, Keira really took a stand!   In fact, she let Patrick Demarchelier photograph her topless, as long as her breasts were not retouched and I am very thankful to her for this!

I think that Keira looks beautiful and that her small breasts are beautiful!  In fact, I am very proud of her, because she really showed that not every girl needs implants to be gorgeous, but all she needs is confidence and love for her real self! <3<3<3
