When life throws you lemons, just add vodka!

They say that when life throws you lemons, make lemonade; but the truth is that I'd rather add vodka instead. After all, misery loves company - and what better way to deal with misery than to drink alcohol, right? :p

Surprisingly enough, I haven't had a single sip of alcohol since my recent breakup. ...and that is prolly why I am slowly going insane. :p I'm also proud to say that I have kept up a sunny disposition throughout all of it. As is evident in these recent photos. :)

Just keep smiling. Just keep smiling.
Just keep smiling, smiling, smiling...
(Coz I can't swim.)

I dunno. Maybe I'm finally maturing, but I've come to find that smiling is the best way to hide the pain that sometimes creeps up at night and it doesn't bring other people down with you, either. :) Just because you're semi-miserable doesn't mean other people should be semi-miserable with you.

At the moment, I have so much free time at my hands that I've been at my friends' throats, begging to hang out with them more often than not; going to three events a day; and working out much more than I usually do.

It's a hard and tiring way of living, but it's better than wallowing in my thoughts, reliving the past and rethinking my decisions. And since today is Sunday, it's the best time to remind myself that things happen for a reason and God has better plans for me.



  1. And through smiles, you can actually feel that instant perk up you need despite the pain...

    You look really beautiful, and I love that you're honest and very strong. =)


  2. I love that boots!

    thumbs up for not running into alcohol. It will only makes you forgot about the pain for a while. You're doing it right and strong.
    *hugs* :)

  3. Sorry to hear about your breakup, but you are a strong and beautiful lady!

  7. I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.|
