Friday Frills


It takes strength to be firm,
It takes courage to be gentle.

It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.

It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubt.

It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to feel a friend's pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to hide feelings,
It takes courage to show them.

It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on another.

It takes strength to admit you're wrong,
It takes courage to make it right.

It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.

It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.

Beautiful, inspiring post! :)

I totally agree with what you have posted above, it definitely takes courage to be gentle and to surrender, I have to admit. I find it hard to surrender/admit it's my fault, but I find it definitely strengthens the relationship.

I missed you too Sam... Like so very much!!!!!!! <3 I miss our long talks :) Join some Gmail or facebook or yahoo messenger na.. I want to like continuously chat with you :)
And regarding your question, Zara is slightly expensive than our "Domestic Brands" .. LIke my Zara skirt costed me around 1800INR.. and the particular pastel bow top was for about 900INR .. Not very expensive.. But slightly.. It might look overpriced in terms of the material..But the quality is nice :)
N if you want to buy something from it.. Start from blouses or colored Jeans... It has the best collection in terms of the above two :)

New post is up <3 See See :D I have a surprise for you :)

Love

Lovely photo! I think a swing is one of the best places for daydreaming. Did you use to have one when you were a child?
Haha, yes maybe you're right concerning the mantyhoses on my blog. I think it's nice that some people test boundries though, fashion and trends are something one needs to play with. Style shouldn't be taken too seriously if you ask me :)
