BLACK ON BLACK

Usually simplicity is the best way to go. Sometimes I don’t feel like wearing things that don’t make me feel my best and black is always a goal to feel good.

Black is the color of mystery and danger, yet, it may feel cozy. It can be layered endlessly.

This was my look for yesterday. I don’t think I’ve ever worn this much black as I’ve had lately, haha!

Anyway, soon I will be celebrating my birthday with my closest friends who have been as family to me in Sweden.

Talk again soon, hugs ❤

In reality there no shame of admitting to having moments of humanity and vulnerability, I am just a human and I’m not supposed to be always strong.

Lately I experienced bouts of depression that range from simple sadness to life re-considerations. And while the women/men I knew never demonstrated the reality of depression in their lives, the reality of my experience tells me that there had to have been tears in the dark, moments of surrender, wishes of ending lives over life struggles.

I have been given the chance to discuss issues that I may find uncomfortable to bring up in other situations, or even with our my families and friends.

The feeling of distress and confusion in a transitional phase is a normal feeling which everyone has felt it at least a couple of times but recently I realized that no one knows what’s going to happen next. We just occasionally like to pretend we do because it allows us to feel safe.

During my life time, I’ve pushed people away, I’ve come closer with others, I cried, I laughed, I suffered and I enjoyed myself at the same time without feeling ashamed.

Unfortunately, the more we compromise our values, the more of a negative impact it has on our mental wellbeing.

I always said to myself I’m going to make it on my own. Taking a stand – saying that I will not tolerate or put up with certain attitudes or behavior – means being willing to accept the responsibility of making that choice and thus shouldering the consequences.

Doing the right thing or standing up for my believes may not be easy mission as many think, but when I do, I know that I’ll be able to look myself in the mirror and feel good about myself

The truth is, we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t make mistakes, but learning from those mistakes and standing for what we believe in the vast majority of time is what is most important.. We’re all human, and it is up to us stand up for ourselves or for one another.

Today is the “World Kindness Day” so be kind to yourself and to someone else.

Guess what? Last week I got my second tattoo (don’t mind the message on my T-shirt .. Hahahahaha)! Been thinking on this one for a long time now and now when it’s finally there it feels more than right.

I’m so happy with how it turned out!!

There is a story behind that tattoo which I don’t feel like sharing, but I can say I was trying for long time not to fall apart.

The tattoo is a reminder to every fight I went through and those which I will face.

I done my tattoo at the Swahili Bob’s Tattoo Stockholm by Ion.

I already have a small one on my wrist. That first one means a lot for me 

It can be a tough decision on what to get tattooed on your body parts. Just remember that your tattoo is a piece of art which will reflect your personality.

Talk soon, love!!
