Cupcakes of happiness

All men have a sweetness in their life. That is what helps them go on.
It is towards that they turn when they feel too worn out.

Oven baked joy

Go on, have a look at this photo and just try not to be joyful. Isn't that the magic of honey joys? Pretty bird platters and op shopped tableclothes help too. I'm feeling a bit down at the moment because of a few mean people so I need all the joy I can get these days. Yummy power seems to work just as well as pretty power, and as always I'm just telling myself that this is a test of my strength so I can be prepared for the big move to Japan. I'm a very sensitive person and I tend to take criticism very personally and I doubt Japan is going to be all cute kids and silly songs all the time. I need to learn to toughen up a bit and just accept that not everyone is as empathetic as I am. Though really, would it hurt people to just be nice?

Even if it hurts

Always try to be merry,
love the one you love,
laugh and eat lots of cheese, even if it hurts.
