Good morning and happy Thursday beautifuls. Another beautiful winter day is upon us and I am wrapping up in all black, lace, and embellishment love. My picks are from the VS Dream Angels collection and are the push up bra and cheekini panty. Embracing the perfection and letting my inner bombshell shine, I am ready to face the day ahead. As you prepare for your day, bring yourself into the current moment, wrap up in a foundation you love. and let your inner beauty truly shine outward. Love yourself unconditionally, be true to your heart, focus on the positive, and strive to be the good in the world that you want to see. Pursue your passions whole heartedly, live your life, and let your light shine brightly everywhere you go. With grace, kindness, and compassion as your guides let your love touch the lives of all those who surround you. Walk tall through your day finding strength and confidence in being the real you. Know you make this world a brighter place and have an incredible time rocking your day. Love you all to pieces. xoxo MML <3

for those of you who were kidnapped by the darkness, and haven't woken up to daylight yet.

listen, just for a few minutes.

take a few deep breaths [even if you don’t want to breathe anymore]. listen to the pitter-patter of your heart beating in your ears and feel your pulse racing. taste the silence of the world; see the anxiety take over you.

close your eyes and look at the black. look at the black until you see something worth holding onto inside of yourself. wait until breathing doesn’t feel like a losing game and then open your eyes,

and listen.

.

look, you

are wonderful. you remind me of a lullaby in winter, sung like a secret not meant for anyone to know; but it’s a shame, because you’re one of the most beautiful songs.

maybe you’re fireworks that sparkle and light up the july sky - but unlike fireworks, you’ll keep glowing into forever.

or maybe you’re just you, and that’s more than enough.

i know there’s magic in the world.
[you’re proof.]

.

i’d give you a rainbow if it erased the gray days; i’d give you a mirror if it made you see how wonderful you really are.

i’d drain the oceans if it would erase your fear, and i’d package hope and paint smiley faces on the trees if it’d make you smile. i’d send you a nightlight if it would do away with all the monsters and nightmares. i’d free fall with you if it made you feel less alone.

[and at the end of the fall, we could lay on the ground and wish just to be wishing, hope just to be hoping,
and at the end of it all, i’d offer you my hand to help you up.]

.

sometimes, i think of myself as an empty house, standing alone and hiding behind lies no one bothers to look past. locked windows and doors are meant to keep the world away,

but hey:
if i only had one key,

i’d give it to you.

.

listen:

i believe [in] you.


***i didnt write this: found it in deviantart, under the incredible artists, amertie.***

if any of you need anyone to talk to, im always open ears and no judgment.

What if imperfection is perfection? You were made that way, on a cellular level. There’s a science that explains how you are. And yet, words cannot explain who are. Who are you? Words were not meant to do explain this.

You were made this way for a reason. Is that reason within your understanding? Yes? Perfect. No? Perfect. You only have to accept it.

Once you accept that and accept your life as it is, you’ll find a freedom you can only share through your being. Don’t even accept, just acknowledge. Your being is perfect.

You are here to be, nothing else. What you choose to be is what sets the tone of your life. Now, how are you living?
