Life is short. Instead of foolishly putting hopes into others, it is essential to awaken and work on oneself inward and outwardly. The only person who can truly make us happy is ourselves.

We all wear masks, hiding behind a veil, keeping half truths from those we love. Once that mask/veil is removed and the truth is discovered, there is nowhere one can hide. There is more beauty and respect in being upfront and honest. There is only so long one can withstand the webs of illusion and lies that leave the mouths of those they love. Sometimes truth is too painful to bare, thus the veil. I believe it’s a risk worth taking ♥

    Not only that but it is usually a lot more humorous and when we can laugh at our human condition in ourselves and others it is a bigger step to healing than you might guess huh? You are always the picture of loveliness dear Heather!!!

    I, too, believe happiness needs to start from within and radiate outward. You are the master of self portraits and mirrored art. This is AMAZING. You look like a beautiful porcelain doll. Great concept and great result! Much love to you, tender and beautiful muse! XOXO
