"I just want you to smile."

[photo via pinterest]

"Come on."
She says with a smile.
He states, trying to keep his scowl in place.
"I said, no."
"Come on! I just want you to smile."
"Because I need to get your picture."
"Well, when you put it like that...NO."
She sighs, lifting her head from behind the camera.
"Pretty please? With a cherry on top?"
"I don't like cherries."
She huffs.
"You're stubborn."
She states.
"Not as much as you."
He lets a small curve appear in his thin-lipped frown.
She snaps the picture.
She laughs, turning and racing down the path.
"Come back here!"
He chases after her.
They run around the yard.
The girl giggles.
The boy scowls.
She manages to snap another picture.
Then the boy jumps on her.
They land side by side on the muddy ground.
"Ow. What was that for?"
The girl mumbles.
"I want you to take my picture."
The boy mutters back, a seriousness covering his eyes.
"Because I want to remember this moment."
"You want to remember the moment when you attacked me?"
"No. I want to remember this."
He touches their lips together for a brief second.
The girl closes her eyes.
The boy slowly pulls back.
She shifts closer, holding the camera above their faces.
She whispers.
He states.
The camera flashes.
And the moment is caught.

  1. okay, okay... hold on. like--what?! Right when I think you couldn't get any more flawless! Like, how is it possible for ONE PERSON to be THIS flawless?! I don't even know. Srsly, I can't take this! -_-

    "I'm not flawless."

    "I'm not a good writer."

    psh, yeah right!

    You are wayyyyy too good for me. I don't even know why you still want me around! •-•

    You are... Perfection. nuff said.

    ^^^sorry about all that, I just can't contain this much flawlessness! \(•-•)-<3



    1. Kenz, honey... I'm not flawless. •-•

      Well I'm not, okay?

      And I'm not too good for you, it's the other way around. mOf course I want you around! Who wouldn't want you around?!?

      No I'm not. •-•

    Don't tell me you're not amazing or epic, Rosie.

    Here's the deal: Kenz is epic= Kepic. What would you prefer to be called?

    Rosie, you= amazing, buuuuut, Ramazing doesn't really have a ring to it. Neither does Rlawless (Rosie+Flawless). You must help me if you truly love me! Not only you, but everyone else. PEOPLE, WHAT DO I CALL ROSIE? Kenz, a little help here? Pretty please with a cherry on top? (Personally I love cherries).

    Beautiful writing. It made ME smile


    1. Erm...I'm sorry Lesie, but I have to. :-/

      Hehe, Kepic? I like that...

      Hmm...really I don't have a preference. You can call me whatever you'd like. You don't even have to give me a nickname. "Rosie" is good enough. •-•

      Aww, good. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. :)


  3. Rose, this is legit amazing. :') Like, I'm-crying-over-here-amazing.
    Keep writing! :)


    1. Oh wow, thank you!
      I'm so glad you like it. :)

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?

Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…
