Real or Fake?

So cruising around on my facebook today, I saw the below picture:

RealvsFake

and it really got me thinking. Real vs Fake. Most of the comments that I saw, were saying how they loved the “fake” version, the painting. Myself, I was automatically drawn to the photograph that the painting was modeled from. That is what is real.

And this leads me to a new line of thought. Are people always drawn to what they want to see instead of what is real?

Is this created from the media, envy, or what?

What do you think? Real, or fake? Why?

I choose real because to me, the beauty is in what we behold and know is truth, not what we are directed to think is “perfect”.

Changes!

I’ve decided that since my life has been changing, I don’t need to put out hard hitting posts about depression. That’s not who I am. I just want to make sure I’m posting. I want to share what is going on in my days. If it’s that I just danced through the grocery store, then I’ll post it. Or perhaps I took photos on my walk to work of the first snow fall. Or maybe I’m entering a costume contest at the Comic Con. I want to write about those things.
Ok, so some of you may get a double dose as there may be some facebook repeats, but that’s ok. I’m writing, and it’s what I want to do. Things will be different, but that’s good. Change is good, and being different, well that is what is truly me.

Enjoy and embrace, because this is me!

My Promise to You

My Promise to You

We may pass through storms
But you say: “Don’t you worry my dear,
there’s nowhere else I want to be
than keeping you near.

Hand in hand, let’s take this step.
This first one, speaks the most
as we start over anew,
letting the past become a ghost.

Let me be your strength,
teaching you how to believe.
Giving you hope to hold onto,
showing you that I’ll never leave.

Let’s make the past fade away
and stop being afraid.
I will never let you fall,
always there to give you aid.

I’ll never want you to be different
I love you for who you are
You make me feel better
Just for being my star.”

Why So Serious?

Why So Serious?

For my boyfriend, with all that he’s shown me.

A Little Photography to Brighten the Day

So whilst I was M.I.A., I kept doing the photography. I had some amazing days for it too. I wanted to add a few of my favorites that I took.

Britt’s Poem

So, in the middle of everything that I was going through, one of my friends was having a bad day, and for all that she has been doing for me, and making me smile, I couldn’t let it go and had to make her smile as well. Brittany and I love sending silly pictures and text back and forth and just encouraging each other, so when she was having a bad day, I couldn’t help but try to cheer her up. PS. you should also check out her blog!

Through this journey
Passing amongst despair
Don’t give up, don’t give in
I’ll teach you how to not be scared

I won’t leave you, you’re not alone
This is where you belong
And in a while this shall pass,
You’ll see that you’ve become strong.

We both know what it’s like,
being who we don’t want to be
But I’ve made it this far,
and am guiding you to me.

I’ll put you back together,
broke piece by shattered piece
Making you smile and live
Until those memories cease.

Yes it is short, but half of it was written in a moment over text…
