The Earth and I Laugh in the Same Way

According to E.E. Cummings, I must laugh a lot since I create a lot of flower-themed jewelry.

The Earth and I laugh in the same way. Creating things, such as beautiful flowers, gives me such joy. I'm always peaceful when I'm creating things. I resolve issues through creating things.

I'm sure the Earth feels the same way - the Earth sure makes some beautiful flowers!

And I do laugh a lot.

Here are some flowers that I've "laughed up":

Beautiful Weeper

"He who does not weep does not see." -Les Miserables

I see beauty when someone weeps. Their vulnerability is proof that we are human. It shows us that we are capable of being sad, hurt, angry. We are not perfect. We shouldn't let everything get to us, but showing emotion is what makes us human. I see strength in those who listen to their emotions, and at times let them guide them in order to find answers. 

Our emotions are what make us beautiful. They give us proof that we're human, and show us how our hearts guide us through life. The moment we accept that sometimes our emotions need to take over for a bit, and let us weep our heart out, we see how we are in touch with God. How He guides us through our good and bad times. What could be more beautiful?

When you're sad, be sad. 
When you're happy, be happy. 
When you're angry, be angry. 
Listen, live and be human.

Featured in The Canary Fairy

(click to enlarge)

I don't know if you've noticed... but I have been in loooove with the colour yellow lately!
It just makes me so happy and brings a smile to my face whenever I see it! :D

That's why I was thrilled when my Yellow Garden Pinks Necklace was featured in this lovely, treasury, "The Canary Fairy". It's been quite a popular treasury too, which doesn't surprise me.

Please go check it out, and heart it :)

And do you like the colour yellow?
What are your favourite yellow things??

Have you created any treasuries?

Are We Human?

I absolutely LOVE this song!!

     Are we human?
     Or are we dancer?
     My sign is vital
     My hands are cold
     And I'm on my knees
     Looking for the answer
     Are we human?
     Or are we dancer?

I love The Killers, especially their lyrics.

I Passed! {in theory}

I've been working hard to pass the driver's theory test. (You may have read about that here before.)
I've been stressing over it, because I can get my license after passing this test, and the driver's test of course.

There's been so much stress with school and everything lately. But I've been taking an online test over and over again the past few days (which simulates the real one) and I passed for the first time today!! :D YAY!

So I'm gonna head down to the proper test-taking place on Friday after a bit more studying (I got 7 questions wrong, and the max number of mistakes is 7).

Wish me luck?

Finding Peace

Lately I've been a bit down because the people around me somehow keep figuring out a way to bring me down. Over and over again. It's exhausting and I'm so tired of it.

They act like my friends, get me to trust them, get close to them. Only to be able to push me further down. To hurt me even more. Because I started trusting them.

                                                                      Source: via Katrine on Pinterest

But I won't let them get me down because people that actually try to bring others down, are not worth a thing to me. They're not worth a single worry.

And I don't like myself when I'm around them either. Because I get aggressive, sad, and annoyed.

And I will start being stronger. I will start letting them know how much they are hurting me, and others. I will not tolerate this anymore.

The thing that sucks the most is that they are starting to make me believe that I can't trust others than family. And they're making life hard for me. Why make it hard, when it can be easy?

                                                                  Source: via Katrine on Pinterest

I guess I just need to find peace, and calmness in my heart. 
I will be satisfied with myself, no matter what everyone else says or does.

My own opinion is the only one that matters in the end.
