Quote of post: "This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this."  - Charlie Brown

My Floating Balloon: Today my balloon has sadness, but not regular sadness. It has the sadness you feel towards yourself. The kind you get when you are depressed or feeling bad and you blame everything and everybody else for it. I don't feel this way often because I look at things in the view that it is always my fault. Which i guess is not very good either. However i see it as if something is wrong with me that is making me feel bad it may be because i have done something or have an effect on it, not anybody else. Anyway, i know that we have all probably blamed others for our feelings, and sometimes it should be blamed, but when it comes to sadness for yourself i believe that maybe you should step back and look at exactly what you are sad for. Sometimes you just need to look at it and get over it. I know that sounds bad, but it is true. Dont mourn for yourself. Just stop, think about something else and all that is great in your life and put on your happy face. :D <3 Thanks for reading.

  2. hey.. thanks for your sweet comment! love the white dress!

  3. Fantastic photos! I especially love the first set - the detailing of the white dress is really interesting.

    And I agree with you: I definitely have those "sad days." I'm usually like why am I feeling so sad? I'm not feeling lonely or anything, I'm just... sad? Thankfully that doesn't happen too much! Usually only after a long day / exhaustion..

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. I like your dress & the idea on ripping the tights a little.
