A message in a bottle. No one truly knows who they are. The glass bottle does not know its own contents. It has no idea whether it is a vessel for the most delicious apple cider, a lovingly crafted wine, or a bitter poison. People are the same. Yet like the bottle, we are transparent. We can't see ourselves the way others see us. Have you ever felt so stressed out you just need a little glimpse of escape from reality? I guess I'm in that phase in life. Trying to find myself in a world full of terrifying delusions. It's like waiting for a bottle floating out at sea, one that contains a very important message. It may never reach its recipient, but as long as there is someone waiting, it will always have purpose. What I'm trying to say here, where will all of this take me?
I always believe in this phrase "Everything happens for a reason." but don't you sometimes wish you know what the reason was? As time passes by I realized a lot of things in life, both the good(s) that made me a better person and the bad(s) that made me think twice. What goes around comes back around, am I right?
Same old same old, if you follow me on my social media this might not be something new. I always post a photo right after I published a new archive and announced that it's finally up on the blog. Most of you DM-ed me and emailed how inspiring and thoughtful it was to share my own experiences and well should I say, things I wanted to say but never did? It made my day to hear such positive responses, the fact that this is a fashion blog platform does not always mean you can't share a lil' something that goes into your mind at all hours of the day... So, thank you eventhough I ditch blogging for about 2 years - never knew that words can be so powerful for other people around me. It's funny, don't you think? When it's hard to say the things tumbling on a mind but it just seems way easier to write it all down, for me that is. I guess I found my little glimpse of escape from reality I was talking about earlier. Bittersweet.
