We're Only Human

Pictures can be so deceiving.
The only thing portrayed accurately in the pictures below is the weather. It was a hauntingly beautiful day of gloom yesterday. I wore a chartreuse sweater to try and feign a sense of vibrancy. A little pep in my step, if you will. It didn't work.

To the naked eye, I may appear to be happy and smiling in pictures 1, 2, and 3. Truth be told, it has been a hell of a week. Emphasis on hell.

I feel like I read so many blogs where everyone has perfect lives. They have perfect bodies, perfect hair, perfect make-up, chic clothes, killer heels, amazing opportunities, etcetc and the list goes on. I, however, am here to tell you that my blog is not one of those blogs. I will tell you the black and white of the situation, the down and dirty of it all. Right now, it's a whole lot of dirty and bucket-fulls of black. This is life though. With all the wishing in the world, it will never be filled with rainbows and sunshine and gummy bears and unicorns. Things will go wrong and you know what? It's ok to break down and have a good cry. It's perfectly acceptable to throw yourself a pity party for one and binge on fast food all day. You're allowed to be upset or depressed or hurt or fed up. Afterall, we're only human.

Just don't forget to dust your self off and remember how hot Ryan Gosling is.
That always seems to make everything better.

    Don't worry, nobody's perfect, some just get lucky. Sometimes I think some people forget that.

  4. You're absolutely stunning. I understand how you feel. Sometimes I feel the same way-- like everything around me is at a level of perfection in which I'll never achieve.
