The Possibilities

Dear Sister,

“No one will be as entertained by us as us!”

Dear sister,

Do you remember those times we would fight and argue and be down right horrible to one another? How about those times where we bargained with each other to get out of doing something? Or when we would prank mom or the babies? Oh! How about that one time when you told me that you could handle drinking coffee with me late at night as I did homework? I’ll never forget that time, you little liar. We stayed up ALL night because of your sugar high.

We’ve been through quite a bit, yet we got through it with each other. I appreciate you so very much, much more than you know. You are always there for me when I need you (or don’t) and vice versa. We have a bond that no one can even begin to understand. You, my dear, are a special kind of gal. While being a mini version of mom, you are also both a little sister and big sister. That’s pretty awesome, because we get to relate on another level.

You have started the first chapter of a new book today, though life doesn’t always seem easy it does work out the way it’s supposed to. Don’t stress, don’t over think, just go and live your life the way you feel is right. Don’t worry about others and always be your cute, little, mean, and goofy self. I love you so very much and today you are finally an adult. At least legally, you’ll still my precious little sister to me. So happy birthday my wonderful darling, you have such greatness awaiting you!

Lots of Love,

Felie Fel ♥

P. S. I would appreciate it if I could have my black cardigan back and if we could FINALLY finish Gossip Girl.

A New Year, A New Journey, A New Book

“One Year = 365 Opportunities”

Last year, 2016, was quite the rollercoaster. There were great times and there were bad, the ending wasn’t what I hoped it would be but do things ever happen the way we want them to?

I did, however, learn quite a bit from this recent year. I’ve learned to open myself up to people; it’s hard yes and sometimes disappointing in the end, but so worth it. I’ve learned that you can’t trust everyone who claims to be your friend; and those who are will do everything to keep that bond. I’ve re-learned the importance of family, that in the end the arguments and fights don’t matter. Just love. Family isn’t just blood, it includes the ones you bond so closely with (like your best friend that brings you a WHOLE container of chocolates when you’re sad.)

I’m not big on the idea of “a new year, a new me” because I become a “new” me every time something major happens. I learn something new about myself every day because every day I grow. So for this new year, 2017, (more…)

Creativity is…

“Creativity is the greatest rebellion in existence.” – Osho

Creativity is many things: making mistakes, expression, having fun, inventing, experimenting, and so much more. It can be anything you want it to be. It can be created in so many ways; through art, music, books, clothes, and more. It brings beauty into this catastrophic world. It sends a message. It can be interpreted in a various amount of ways. It. Can. Be.

How do you express your creativity? I express my creativity the same way I express who I am.

I love sketching, though it has been quite a while since I picked up a pencil. I relish in the way my pencils flow across the pages of my sketch book. I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment I get when I get the picture that’s stuck in my head onto a piece of paper, it’s a feeling that I can’t really describe. Whether I am happy with the outcome or not, I like to surround myself with my creations. I pin as much as I can onto my walls in my bedroom (even the ones that are incomplete), the others are kept in the safety of my sketch books on my small bookshelf. My best work comes when I’m listening to music, feeling strongly about something (or my emotions are just out whack), after reading a marvelous book, or even sometimes when I’m terribly bored. Now I don’t like showing people my artwork, but that’s okay because being creative doesn’t mean everyone has to see it and those that do, well those people are pretty special.
