I like the beauty of the ugly, of the decay, the ordinary. To prove that just because you pass it by for something ordinary or ugly it doesn't mean it is. I want to show the sides that other people don't.

I want to show what other people miss, that dying leaf or that burnt flower... I want to give a place for those who aren't seen. I want to show you the broken, the dying, the sad, the hopeless in nature.

I want to show the beauty no matter if it's a perfect flower or a crooked one.

Happy Valentine's Day - not just for couples

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 14, 2015, 9:15 AM
A year ago around this time my life would forever change but a year ago on this day I didn't know it yet, today a year ago I just regretted that I had not written a letter which I planned. Crazy when I think about it.

Anyway, today is a day which many feel lonely and just see the happy couples everywhere. I see today as a day to show everyone in your life that you love them: your mum, dad, siblings, partner, friends, yourself. I do not see it as an exclusive day for couples.

So make sure to let the people around you know that you love them and spoil yourself a little bit if you don't have anyone to spoil you. Maybe buy a gift to a friend and do something special together?

Me and my mum, when I lived at home, used to dress up and go out on the town and buy delicious buns with sugar on top and vanilla cream inside (to die for!) and eat it there or take it home and eat by the kitchen table. We always bought something small for each other like a heart or a teddy bear. We made it a nice day together and I always feel warm inside when thinking of me and my mum's V-day ritual, a very fond memory.

Do not be confined by the couple hype of today but see it as a day to appreciate and show love to the ones you love (and yourself). If you are lonely, then maybe treat yourself to pizza, candy and a movie (at home or cinema) or a whole B&J ice cream.

Oh and if you feel miserable about today just remember this: in 2012 I was dumped on the morning of V-day through the facebook chat while seeing everyone in my fb feed posting romantic pics and happy comments. I really do hope you cannot top that and if you can here :hug:

Have a Happy Valentine's Day :blowkiss:
