you're solid gold, you're a fabulous bold!

i made delicious lemon cupcakes with my friend romana. i have been watching a lot of horror and thriller movies lately. but nothing is like watching Now and Then again. It's one of my favourites. I also took an amazing decadent shower with a homemade chocolate exfoliator. It is my new obsession.

i went to a fantastic sale recently! i got a beautiful blue slip. I also went to a vegan cafe, and had a delicious burger. I don't know that many places that are strictly vegan.

have you ever thought about romancing yourself? self love is super important, and Gala Darling ( is now making February Radical Self Love month. i'm super excited about this. I really want to love myself. All parts of myself. My improv-team self, my drama kid self, my family self, my dancer self, my school friends self, my best friends best friend self, and most importantly, myself when i am alone.

I agree about being content despite imperfections, definitely =)
My take on it really has to do with the answer to your question though - thanks for asking :) The sum of my views really comes down to the fact that I am created by a holy God and fall short of his perfect standard, so I need a the salvation that his son Jesus Christ offered by dying in my place. All of this is not because of who I am or what I did right, but because he is gracious. So everything in my life reflects this - that it is a gift, that I am broken, that I am always being refined and growing.

I want to always be at a place where I see how imperfect and unholy I am, but where I am not despairing and am motivated to change because of the beauty of Christ and being made more like him, and being thankful for his grace to me and the loveliness of life. There is so much hope in that, and all of it is found outside myself. I can't get to heaven by myself and I can't love people by myself either.

Life is so beautiful and thankful ALL the time, when I realize that every breath is a gift and that nothing is because of me. I'm content and joyful, and happy to be me, but because it's bigger than me, not because I'm important.
I hope that makes sense =) Thanks for sharing and for responding so pleasantly too, despite disagreement.

much love;
