Easter Long Weekend

We have had such great weather this Easter long weekend.
Though we did not have a chance to really take advantage because of how uncomfortable I have been for the past few days.
I can't remember the last time I felt so physically weak; I can count the minutes that I did not feel sick this whole three days. Most of the time I just wanted to stay in bed, not eat, not drink and not talking to anyone or thinking about anything.
Luckily I have Alan and my sister who, despite what a weak and boring person I have been, were willing to spend time with me and helped me to get some fresh air.
Walking along Iona Beach with Alan and getting my very own "Gracy Style" Smashbook handmade by my dear sister - Those were the moments when my sickness was taken away and replaced by happiness.

Alan and Grace's Best of France - Antiquing in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue

Happy Weekend!

Here are some photos of us antiquing in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue one beautiful lazy afternoon last October.  We did not end up buying anything "old", but we did have an amazing time sipping espresso and picnicking by the water.

Life is good.

Not the Person I Want to Be....Yet

There is this version of me that I want to be.

I was hoping that I can be that person by the time I am 30, and then, I will be able to proudly say on the day, look how much I have grown.

But so far I have been taking wrong steps almost every single day and no matter how much I beat myself up about it, I still can't do it perfectly the next day.

I still don't spending enough time being with people I love and showing how much I care.

I am still judgemental even when it's absolutely none of my business.  I am still not kind enough to people.

I am still not focusing my energy on things that truly matters.

I still have thoughts that I don't wish to have in my head.

It is unbelievably difficult to make the change when some of these things are in my vein, in my blood, and it doesn't seem like there is a magic swtich for me to just turn and transform in two weeks.

I am starting to think maybe I have been aiming too high too fast.

Instead of feeling bad about it... let me celebrate everthing.
