Time Out…

Time out

There is so much love in the air at this point in time that it is making me think twice, perhaps even thrice, about everything. Everyone….

Being reminded of how it feels to fall in love, being in love and thus feeling loved, is pretty hard going. Some people can shrug it off and get on with life whereas others will just crumble, from time to time.

It is okay; to crumble. It is okay, to have a cry. It is okay, to be angry. What we all need to remember is that we, each and every one of us, is to be kind to ourselves and not over think. Too many “what if’s” isn’t healthy, too much time spent ruminating, also isn’t healthy.

I find it helps to visually sort out all the thoughts and emotions into a box and pack them away. Dispatching it even. Seeing and feeling the weight fade away.

There is no such thing as a perfect person but there is and there will be, someone that is perfect for you… and me. Until then, let us reserve our hearts.

Meanwhile, do make sure to take some time out each and every day, to treat yourself. For a little dab of my favorite perfume and a mug of hot chocolate, to me, is priceless.

You deserve it and so much more.

The (Bee) Hive, Kew Gardens.

Here is a personal video from my visit to the (Bee) Hive at Kew Gardens, UK, it made for an excellent visual experience. I could also feel slight vibrations in the air from the low humming of the bees, of which if got louder and stronger, the lights reflected this in intensity.

Please do however visit the Kew Gardens’ website for more information regarding the Hive. If you do get the chance to go and visit, seize it for your own sensory experience, in more ways than one.

Click here to be taken to Kew Gardens’ Hive page.

The flowers within the grounds of Kew Gardens are also, extremely photogenic. 😉

It is vital to keep our environment more friendly for the bees, butterflies, moths and other insect pollinators. For more information on how to help, please visit Gov.uk’s information page – Click here.

Thank YOU.

Reviewing (on) Amazon

It seems as though one cannot be honest while posting public reviews on Amazon – as long as they look favourable. Most of the time, they have reason to be but not in this instance.

Hence posting it here.

(Please pardon any auto-corrects in initial review, i.e. ‘edit instead’ should have been ‘estimated’)

Although someone managed to post their review on the very same item – one of which I could relate to 😉

Beauty Comes From Within…

beautycomesfromwithin

Many people tend to be taken back by a person’s beauty but they never seem to stop to remember that one’s beauty may only be skin deep. They simply momentarily pause, to admire. To lust.

Whether they entertain their lust, is their conscious choice only of which, defines who they are.

Those, whom may have experienced life in such unimaginable depths, would naturally turn away from any displays of affection. Surrounded by an invisible fortress, they feel much safer in guarding their hearts.

There is sadness behind our eyes, old souls in our young bodies and shattered hearts, which have been delicately put back together. However, because of our life experiences, we would not wish to see others hurt in the same manner so much so we tend to extend our tired hands just to help them back up again.

I wish people would take the time to see past behind my smile, my eyes and my body to see and know the real me. To believe in me.

Someone, who once told me, had allowed themselves to dream. Except…

I am not a fantasy but a reality; I am not an object but a being.

I am me, whose beauty, comes from within.

A Woman Of Strength

courage

“A strong woman knows she has strength enough for the journey, but a woman of strength knows it is in the journey where she will become strong.”

“A woman’s strength isn’t just about how much she can handle before she breaks. It’s also about how much she must handle, after she’s broken.”

“I’ve battled my whole life to become the woman I am today. If you think you can take me down after all that I’ve already been through, give it your best shot. You will not succeed.”

The lion in me will never retreat…

“Lions do not lose sleep over the opinions of sheep.”

I Miss You…

If only I could turn back the hands of time, I would have told you, that I loved you.

Then again, if you truly respected or loved me in return, you would not have kicked me whilst I was down, exploited and stabbed me in the back or expressed any disdain. To think, I would never have done any wrong by you, or anyone else.

Not a day goes by when I do not think of you, or wonder how you are, hoping that you are okay. Most importantly, if you are happy since happiness is all I ever wish(ed) for, for you. Then and now.

Losing the best of my friends over the past few years has been an extremely cathartic experience but it has not come without any consequences as a result, of your actions and choices. Due to the manner you behaved in, God only knows whether in the future, I would give you a second chance.

I thank you as well as the others, for showing me who not to be.

Yet despite your flaws, I miss you… Still.

All my love, more than you realise.

Then. Now. Always.
