Petals on my sheets

I love the feeling of skimming through old sheet music and looking for some new classic music to play on my piano. Music is basically the best thing that has ever existed. What would life be without songs and music?

Beloved

This song makes me feel nostalgic and think of my near and dear ones. What could some of them possibly be doing right now in this moment? Are they sleeping? Or are they working hard?

It also gives me hope about the future of the world and reminds me of why I want to succeed in school. Hearing it feels like I’m at the ocean, listening to the sound of the crying waves.

Yes, this is what all of Yiruma’s music does to me! Who are your favorite musician?

I’m short and I love it

When I was in middle school, I felt pretty insecure about my modest height. There was a time when most of the people around me started to gain height in a short amount of time. Many people felt sorry for me and tried to cheer me up by saying that I will soon grow too, which made me look at shortness as something negative. When my school nurse told me that I had stopped growing, I was of course disappointed.

Before I started high school, I found new role models who gave me more confidence and made me stop thinking about my height and move my focus to other important things in life. But shortly after that, one of my classmates started to complain loudly over her height, about how SHORT she was and how UGLY being short in general is. She turned to me afterwards and started to ask ME how tall I was (I was in fact at least 4 inches shorter than her and she was taller than most of the girls at our school).

During that moment, I first felt hit and hurt (that girl had just expressed her resentment towards shortness and now she was asking me about my height), but after a second (that must have felt like an eternity), I started to realise that there is no reason for me to be ashamed of my own height, body or looks.

Instead of confronting her, I simply answered that I didn’t know. It was better not to argue about such a sensitive topic that was simply based on her own insecurities, whose attention had been moved to me. After that, I started to love my body for real.

Unfortunately, there will be mean people (or just people) walking around commenting other people’s looks and bodies. Some might, or will, try to push you down, no matter how perfect you are, but that’s their own problem, not yours.

I’m not writing this to attack anybody or declare my love for myself, but rather to say that we are all perfect. I really mean it. I see many people every day, and the only thing I know about them is that they look stunning and beautiful.

In the end, it’s our own bodies that’s going to carry us and be with us our entire lives, and if we don’t love and nurture ourselves, how are we going to live and be happy?

Retro romantic

Hello everyone!

I hope that you all had a very great Christmas!

Today I spent my time together with my family in front of the TV, watching series and movies. Sometimes, all it takes for me to be happy is just being together with my family, whether we are talking to each other, or doing our own separate things. It was a nice and comfortable time we had today, with nothing else to worry about. I wish we could have these moments more often…

By the way, here are the gifts I got this Christmas:

Earthy toned red lipstick from my mother. I tried it on and really loved how my lips still looked pretty natural. They were red, but not too red. Dramatic, but not too sharp. To sum it up, I really loved it.

Another gift I got was a lovely pink wallet from my aunt and her family. I love the vintage vibes it gives and how simple and clean it looks. It’s classic and casual, but still retro and romantic.

Have a nice holiday and we’ll see each other again soon!

O Christmas Tree

This Saturday, my family and I went outside to buy Christmas gifts and pick out a Christmas tree (finally). I’m so excited about Christmas and can’t wait until then. The only person who is more excited than me is my mother, who has been a leader in decorating our entire home.

Unfortunately, I caught a really bad cold again and had to stay at home today. To our happiness, it snowed a lot this weekend and now the chrystal snow is finally here to stay.
