Yesterday was one of those day. I am tired and frustrated of people who think the only way to be ahead in life is by running over other people. You want to be ahead in life then work hard, use your brain, be kind to others. Be ahead through an honest way, through a way that you can be proud of. Where's the pride of being ahead by being mean to others?
There's this story about Budha. He was meditating and this rude person walk by him and call him all kind of names and Budha just smile. Finally, the guy asked him why is he still smiling and not being insulted by the name calling and all. And Budha said, "Because none of them were true and your words have no power over me unless I let it be."
Some people are just plain mean and they will do anything and say things about you like this person did to me, just to be ahead. But we have the choice whether to let mean people has power over us or not. If anything, I feel sorry that this person must be so miserable that she feels the need to hurt others just to make herself feel better. I am frustrated by this person act, but you know what... this makes me determine to spread the message that KINDNESS RULES!! Be nice to others and let mean people see that being kind and nice matter more than being mean.
I believe in karma, what goes around comes around. I am just saying it's much better to be nicer than to be mean and you most likely get less wrinkles. Amen. :)
Now that I vented off my frustration, let's share some pretty things shall we. Let's surrounded ourselves with good positive energy. Today, I have a couple cards to share using the new released from A Day For Daisies. As soon as I saw this cute owls image, I knew I want to use it right away. Love the look of hanging stars and to add texture, I hand-stitched them.
Distress the edges of frame with distress ink and for the moon glow, I rub chalks around the moon. The moon itself was colored with copic marker. I often mix and match different color medium on a card. Here's a close-up look of the layered image.
Next, is a super girly card. When I saw this image, I love the layered of her dress. It just looks so pretty & girly. I made this for ADFD "twine" challenge. For the background I stamped a music score
I outlined the sash with Sakura glitter pen and here's a close up look. Hopefully you can see the pretty soft glitters on the sash. You can click on the pic to get a larger view.
Now... I am going to start my days by making someone's day brighter simply by giving them smile. One small act. A smile can trump over a frown. An act of kindness can trump meanness. Let's spread kindness all over the place so meanness have no place in our life.
