Personal Reflection

hey Bon, how are you?
I decided to share your wisdom with my very important people by this reblog 🙂 I want to add that I think one can only love other people as much as he or she loves his or herself. Do you agree?
Have a great day,

Barefoot in Paris


Moving to and living in Paris have taught me two very important things about myself:

  1. How to be comfortable and at ease with who and how I am, and that
  2. Beauty is subjective, and when it comes to myself, only I can define it.

Living in Paris means being surrounded by visually pleasing creatures. I used to get really intimidated and insecure because I knew I just wasn’t on the same level, and I wanted to be. I wanted to be gifted with a defined jawline, I wanted to wear the same shoes, afford the same wardrobe, sport the same hairstyle… In short, I wanted to be them.

Now let me tell you this: there’s no more liberating feeling than accepting the fact that you cannot be like other people, that you can only be the best version of yourself, and that the notion of beauty should not depend on…

Passing Thoughts

Hello Jessi,
I love to be (literally/virtually) at your side on this impressive journey towards finding yourself. Your thought trains might become easier to handle the more of the pieces of the “You”-puzzle you find, too 🙂
I decided to reblog this post on my blog because I really want to introduce you to my very appreciated followers.
May peace surround you and be happiness your friend,

I'm All Unwound!

I think a lot. This could be seen as good, bad or both. I do not know how to view it. I have always been a thinker, a dreamer, a wisher, a creator. In my mind everyone worked as I did. It took negative response upon negative response to learn that the world, though as much as I wish, does not work like me. I know it is foolish to think that everyone thinks or works as you do but keep in mind I was only a child when I had to learn my lessons. I have been scarred so many times and each time I take away different lessons. For the longest time it was just this writhed sense that all humans were cruel and I differ not from the rest. We are all the same and we are all ugly. I know now that this is a misconception…

When you tell someone that you are a liberal arts major, he or she will typically offer one response: “Oh, and what do you plan on doing with that?” Normally, the person asks this question in a kind way, but I like to imagine that he or she says the word that as if it is a piece of food that should be spit out as quickly as possible.

Sometimes, I like to picture the question accompanied by a nervous chuckle. Whether this skepticism is real or imagined, for me, it doesn’t matter; ever since I was a little kid, I have known that I want to pursue a career that involves writing and editing.

One Bridge of Hope

Fooling Yourself

Are You Fooling Yourself…

Have you ever stayed up all night cramming for a test or doing a project?

What happens when you get your grade back and it’s not what you were hoping for?

  1. You know you waited until the last minute, so even though you’re not happy, you can understand why you got that grade.
  2. You’re angry. How could the teacher do this? You stayed up all night working!

If your response is A, you probably have a decent grasp on reality.  If you choose B, you’re completely fooling yourself.    

When you fool yourself, it’s almost as if you are lying.  In the example above, if you chose choice B, you are telling yourself that you worked hard enough.  You can’t understand why you got this grade, and the teacher must be wrong.  The truth is one night of work on something this big is not the…

New Online Jewelry Store

Hey Linda,
just wanted to share your online jewelry store, I like very much what you are doing! You might want to work a bit on the photos though, you could talk to Irenedesign and Ms Mond (Both on my weekly reading list ( to exchange about how to do jewelry photos…
Have a great day & good luck for your business and shelter fundraising,


Getting my new online jewelry store up and running.  I have 118 photos to upload and some 30 pieces of jewelry to caption and describe.  I want to make some business cards to hand out at my neighbor’s Holiday Boutique on the 30th, where I will be selling some of my jewelry.  I already ordered 200 little organza drawstring bags to wrap them in.  Hope to sell more than one, but doubt I’ll sell all 200 pieces.   (If you’re curious you can check out my store at  I spent a lot of last year making all these, but had to stop because nothing was selling at the other websites I tried.  Got my fingers crossed this time will work better, since I already have over 50 views on my stuff.  No sales (of course) but a lot more views in the first few weeks on this site than a…
