Life as I’d Tell It

Life as I'd Tell It

… messaged you

It’s simple as that. Sometimes it’s all you need. When someone does it all without really knowing how much of an impact it has. Or maybe they do but neither need to say much of it. It is what it is.

How can someone miles away can keep you so engaged in conversation? Truth is, they don’t know you and you don’t know them but for some reason… you really want to. Because at the end of the day, you both know well enough that really, you don’t have anything to offer the other. There is no expectation because there is no chance. You don’t know much beyond what it is, because it’s not something you can either explore.

And maybe at times you’ll step back and you wonder, why? Why are you still here? Why am I still here? Where do we see this going? But reality will always take you back and you’ll remember: it doesn’t need to go anywhere.

It goes without saying…

I’m sure I’ll get to a point when we’re both past this. Undesired thoughts will dismiss themselves from me and we’ll be left with an amazing companionship =) .

Queen Size Bed

Sometimes you just want to have something nice for yourself, just because… hey you deserve it.

I’ve always wanted a fancy sleek looking bed frame. If there’s one room I definitely want to dress up, it’d be the bedroom. Sure I had a perfectly functional bed frame, but I wanted something more, something I would feel more spoiled in. I had forgotten about it for a while and just on a random whim I went onto CL and unexpectedly, the perfect bed frame was found.

It’s a lovely mix grey tufted headboard bed frame with full fabric panels for the base, it’s freakn beautiful and just what I needed.

If you’re going to be with someone, be with someone who treats you like a queen.

*song Big K.R.I.T. – Pay Attention

What do you do when something is missing? You try to find ways to fill that void. The easy solution and what the heart seeks for is a direct replacement. But no, I’m not letting myself do that.

I need to be patient again, and just take my time. This doesn’t mean letting myself sit in this rut. I just need to refocus my attention. Instead of yearning for affection (ugh… so me), I need to force my heart to settle into the idea of just being here for me right now. I have to be selfish again, and rediscover the things that I love and what really makes me who I am.

So here I go, trying really hard to just take baby steps. Seeking for positive forward change and growth in my everyday to keep my mind occupied. Big things are happening this month! I’m excited =) .


You’ve always been my favourite “6”, let’s see what you have in store for me.

Life as I'd Tell It, Music


Songs have always been like bookmarks in my life, marking moments and memories, whether significant or not. If I ever had the chance, I would love to write out all the songs in order of when they touched me.

Sometimes the songs are beautiful, lyrically relateable, at others they are just fun feel good songs.

This song takes me back to a few summers ago. I was unemployed, doing my own thing, reconnecting with friends and just enjoying the beautiful summer back in Vancouver. Despite being somewhat “lost” at that time, for some reason I remember feeling so much love for myself. I was incredibly proud of the choices I had made and the experiences I had gained in leaving the country, then returning to the people I love and missed. Not only was I feeling so much love for myself, I felt truly surrounded with it from all my family and friends and all this just empowered me to keep pursuing and doing “me”.

This is where this song fit in so perfectly. I remember driving back late in the night, with the windows down. Driving those empty streets as street lights passed to add that gold sparkle to the night. And though it might sound really self-absorbed(?), I remember this song playing on blast, and I sang along “Good lord, I’m f*cking beautiful” haha.

Best thing? I don’t think anything will ever take that memory away from this song. And everytime I hear it again, it’s a nice reminder. Everyone, seriously, learn to love yourself =).
