Mirror, mirror on the wall! <3


Mirror, mirror on the wall!-Full-length & huge mirror junkie! (–,)

“Life is only a reflection of what we allow ourselves to see.”

Gone are the days when you need someone else to take your pictures! Mobile phone companies came up with innovations like phones and cameras with capability of taking pictures from the front and back. The sensational “selfie” trend hasn’t died despite of several claims that it is a mental sickness, people (including me) continue to take selfies at every chance. I personally oppose it’s a sickness, because loving oneself or appreciating oneself despite of known flaws or imperfections and looking at the prettier side of oneself is the only key for us to love another.  Unless a person is no longer productive due to addiction of taking pictures of herself 24/7! That’s the only time I will refer to it as a sickness. However, this issue I believe is “To each his own!”

Personally, one of my habits that’s really hard to break is to take picture of myself every time I see full length (and/or huge) mirrors (or ask my friends to take it for me)! =)

Unlike popular celebrities taking their OOTD on a daily basis. I don’t have that chance. I take selfies on these huge mirrors only if I feel like it. And mind you there are instances that there is a full-length mirror and yet I was not able to take my pictures since there are other people in that area. It felt too awkward for me! ahaha!

Just the same, waiting for people to leave doesn’t hurt that much, I was just like a Pink panther sneaking my ownership of that huge mirror! Ahaha!

of taking my own pictures, for all I know, each one of us  are picture addicts and those who are not comfortable taking their pictures are the ones that I think that needs treatment. It is a beautiful world after all! ❤

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
