Friday Frills


You are strong...
when you take your grief and teach it to smile.
You are brave...
when you overcome your fear and help others to do the same.
You are happy...
when you see something simple like a flower and are thankful for the blessing
You are loving...
when your own pain does not blind you to the pain of others.


You are wise...
when you know the limits of your wisdom.
You are true... 

when you admit there are times when you fool yourself.
You are alive...
when tomorrow's hope means more to you than yesterday's mistake.
You are growing...
when you know what you are, but not what you will become.

You are free...
when you are in control of yourself and do not wish to control others.
You are honourable...
when you find that your honour is to honour others.
You are generous... 
when you can take as sweetly as you can give.
You are humble...
when you do not know just how humble you are.

You are thoughtful...
when you see me just as I am and treat me just as you are.
You are merciful...
when you forgive in others the faults you condemn in yourself.
You are beautiful...
when you don’t need a mirror to tell you so.
You are rich...
when you never need more than what you have. 

You are you...
When you are at peace with who you are not.

Morning Sam! Oh sorry, I havent realized you were off for work, but thought for some trip!:) Hope you can have one soon so!:) Btw, I read this is ones of your all time fav quotes and now I get you why. Is very inspiring and so true in every sentences. Have enjoyed them all but the last one in particular cautgh my attention: you are you when you are at peace with who you are not. I think we all aim for our self-fulfilment in every fields: love, work, friendship. We long for the best and happiness, maybe behaving as a person we never would be just to be accepted by people and in doing that is like we cheat ourselves. Our inner peace and happiness is reached when first we accepted the person we are, being loyal with our character and personality, having clear who we never could be:) Happy Friday my dear, big kisses! xo

Love this! I can see why it's one of your favorites! So inspiring!

Song Hye Kyo is one of my favorite actresses which I why I keep featuring her. What's awesome is that she is just as lovely on the inside as she is on the outside. Maybe you should cut your hair again. I bet you were stunning with a bob. Happy weekend Sam!
