The photo above was “Ali & Ben” and “Olivia & Ben”.
Ali, the mommy, died of a rare lung cancer and before Olivia, the only daughter, and Ben finally decided to leave their home filled with memories, they’ve decided that Ali’s sister Melanie, a photographer, recreate some photos from the wedding.
If I am Olivia and when I grew up, I would love my Dad and Aunt who gave me something that I could especially share with my Mom through an artwork when I was at my cutest and most innocent age.
The details are adorable and see how the recreation paired the Daughter-Daddy with red shoes.It is very charming to bring back memories that usually could stir some sadness but still giving hope for beautiful present and future.

I am so crazy for massage; the painful one. It feels like only the painful one could pop all the aching parts. I feel like my age strained the muscles at my neck, shoulder, and back. Or the simple reality that I am stressing out on things that could actually be managed if I stop being a drama queen.
My beautiful Mum used to give me the most divine acupressure; so divine I almost pee myself and begged her to stop so I can recuperate or simply breathe. Since she got really sick and passed away; I have never found anyone who has a pair of hands that soothe every tensed muscles in my immaculate body.
Last Monday, I tried Thai Massage, I wasn’t sure if it was just the technique but the soft hands didn’t satisfy. Today, i just finished a 2-hour Hot Stone Full Body Massage & a generous Foot Massage, I haven’t been having peace of mind lately so for the first time on a massage bed, I fell asleep and snored! I was not actually embarrass to the therapist because the way I saw it, it is a definite compliment. I wish we were at home and I could slumber all throughout.
It’s a good day being pampered by someone who seems to love what she is doing.

Have you ever experienced being so annoyed thinking…
- If only this guy shuts up, my life is at peace.
- Argh, why are they such a moron?!!
- Fuck sake, it is all bullshit again!
- I already sent that email last week, damn don’t they read???!
- Do I really need to do it all, really ALL!!! I am in freaking vacation.
Just writing those five negative statements above, opened the faucet of my good vibes, and it sure slowly draining my positive juices. Being in a negative state of mind is ridiculously insane because it smoothly leads to the perfect self-sabotage. There is actually a solution; it takes practice and it is doable.
Be conscious of what we think and be conscious of what we do.
Whenever we start being defensive, angry, and in pain; let us pause, take a deep breath and be conscious on what we think. Let’s not negative thoughts empower our capacity to understand, to be calm, and be loving or sometimes requiring us to give tough love but still in the most acceptable human behaviour.
Once we take charge on what we think and even on what we feed our selves, we don’t give in to the urge to be the person we soon later regret or even despise; and we avoided hurting the people around us.
When we say we are conscious, we direct our mind and we don’t get persuaded by impulse to take revenge or to attack.
When we are conscious, we separate the circumstance from our true self, and we can act with the most pleasing way.
