happier = less words

i’ve been thinking about what to write here. and i almost thought i’ve gone totally illiterate that i can’t write as much as i did before. i used to fill journals of my feelings or thoughts and when i read them all again, i couldn’t identify with what i wrote anymore. in it was a girl with so much insecurity, self-doubt and desperation. don’t get me wrong, i took risks (in both my personal life and career) and went on great adventures but i built a wall around myself. i showed people i was strong but deep inside, i was filled with fear. i don’t want this to sound like an attempt to write a script for a romantic movie but when i met harry, i slowly dropped the wall and shed the bitterness away. i thought i have lived my life to the fullest by going on multiply road trips and partying every weekend but i found myself going home, my journal in front of me and still feeling empty. when yapi (me) met harry, my journal entries became scarce and my thoughts are now of the future and no longer of the past..and possibly my life with him. could it be that if we’re happier, words become scarce…? because as of now, i am happily speechless…

    i do agree with you. i guess when you're feeling down you're just so frustrated and you have so many things inside of you that you need to get out. and once you're happy…well…then i guess you're speechless, as corny as that is 🙂

    anyway, this outfit is fantastic, i love the layering of necklaces and your booties. oh! and i'm in love with your shoe collection in the post before this one. i'm so tempted to steal all of them. haha 😀

    =)))) I love love. And that was so sweet. I remember reading my middle school diaries and laughing at how ridiculously overdramatic I was. Oh jeezz


  11. i would have to agree with less words on journals. But then I think I am more sociable and more daldal when I'm happy. Nice cute outfit

    You are soo beautiful. Wonderful pictures. Love your blog.

    Have a great day.


  15. You're so adorable. You kind of ressemble Chanel Iman in a not obvious way? Maybe…

    Anyways, in terms of writing – I totally know what you mean. Some days I'm just feeling so blank and emotionless, but then it all passes. I don't know, I guess you just have to go with the flow – things change as you grow up!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!


  16. Adorable outfit!! I love love love that shirt! I love how the print reminds me of vintage wallpaper, very beautiful 😉


  17. What a great post, dear! You have a very lovely blog. I'm curious, did Harry pick out the peep-toes? If so, props to his style! Your whole look is fantastic.
    Take care!

    gizelle, dear, i think we're twins! me too, i must admit i'm quite like you. sometimes i pretend to be someone a lot stronger than i really am while inside i feel lots of fear. even facing new people scares me.

    oh, and those pictures are lovely. your smiling face is so beautiful! i adore your ankle boots and the details of your necklace. hope you have a great day! 🙂

    gorgeous shoes. i agree – i have stacks of journals back from a time when i was more lost and full of insecurities but now that i feel more comfortable with myself and happier i don't feel the need to write anymore. you're not alone!
