Love Yourself

It’s when we meet heart-heart with ourselves we realize who we are really meant to be.

Love Yourself is exactly about that.

Love Yourself (3/4)

Written on July 22, 2015 There was a time when a cherry’s bitterness felt way too bitter. It was nice to have everything sweet. A hint of bitterness was too much to disrupt the sweetness in my mouth. It was an unenjoyable taste. Bitter. A long time ago, I wrote about the longest path in life. It has been a year since I decided to change my life. 5 years since I realized that even though I had everything I wanted in life, I still wasn’t happy. A lifetime since I have been searching for my purpose in life. The…

Love Yourself (2/4)

Written on July 16, 2015 It has been a really long time. We never met. The habit of writing the date before starting an article makes me happy. There was a time when having to write down the date in every single class every single day for every single chapter felt like the most annoying thing in the world. Today, it comes naturally.

It began a while ago with a difficult decision to head to California with a friend I hadn’t seen in years. I contacted her a month before and she simply said, “Let’s do it! Let’s go!” After much thinking, we booked our flights and decided to take care of the rest later. It was something I wanted to do for a long time and even though…

[Flowery Fridays] – How do you treat yourself?

Usually when I buy flowers, I don’t get them wrapped. Every time I am at the checkout, the cashiers ask me if I want them wrapped and I say, “No. They are just for myself.” One day, I thought of experimenting by saying, “Yes, I want them wrapped.” The cashier wrapped it in a bright orange which was appropriate for Spring but I did not feel very good about suffocating the flowers inside paper like that. Secondly, I love putting flowers on top of my grocery cart because that way I can enjoy them as I go home and so…
