Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace

“Speak now or forever hold your peace,” the words said by preachers at the end of wedding ceremonies all over the world, right before the vows. It’s a last chance for protest, a moment that makes everyone’s heart race, and a moment that I’ve always been strangely fascinated by. So many fantasize about bursting into a church, saying what they’d kept inside for years like in the movies. In real life, it rarely happens.
Real life is a funny thing, you know. In real life, saying the right thing at the right moment is beyond crucial. So crucial, in fact,  that most of us start to hesitate, for fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. But lately what I’ve begun to fear more than that is letting the moment pass without saying anything.
I think most of us fear reaching the end of our life, and looking back regretting the moments we didn’t speak up. When we didn’t say “I love you.” When we should’ve said “I’m sorry.” When we didn’t stand up for ourselves or someone who needed help.
Words can break someone into a million pieces, but they can also put them back together. I hope you use your words for good, because the only words you’ll regret more than the ones left unsaid are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone.
What you say might be too much for some people. Maybe it will come out all wrong and you’ll stutter and you’ll walk away embarrassed, wincing as you play it all back in your head. But I think the words you stop yourself from saying are the ones that will haunt you the longest.
So say it to them. Or say it to yourself in the mirror. Say it in a letter you’ll never send or in a book millions might read someday. I think you deserve to look back on your life without a chorus of resounding voices saying “I could’ve, but it’s too late now.”
There is a time for silence. There is a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you’ll know it.
I don’t think you should wait. I think you should speak now.

-Taylor Swift

To start things off, Happy New Year everyone!!! 1st entry for 2011!!! How was everyone's new year's eve??? Well mine was just a simple dinner with my mom's side of the family! We sang to songs such as Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Train etc. I gotta mention, we played with sparklers! I couldn't help, but mentally hear Katy Perry's firework playing in the back ground!!! I guess Christmas season is almost over once this weekend hits! I'm super sorry if my blogging has been inconsistent. I've been out of the house constantly. Well in this entry, I'll feature my outfits that I wore during the season, what I've been up to and my current playlist! Hope thats alright???

Retail Therapy!!! Definitely one of the best during this break!!! Ingrid, Kyo and I went all out in Forever 21 last week!!! It was perfect timing too since they had the best deals EVER! I mean it! Buy 1 take 1? How could you say no!!! Example: Bought a pair of taupe pants then got a free button up polo shirt in return! I was able to stock up on basic shirts, skinny jeans and headpieces(crown go to post inner momsen)!!! After New Year, Ingrid (officially my new shopping buddy/forever 21 buddy) and I went back! I was able to get more shirts, sweatshirts and a pair of jeans! I think I'm definitely ready for term 3 at school! At least my wardrobe/closet is! I visited Topshop and Topman too! I was able to purchase the Lady GaGa sweatshirt and a cinched headband! Both of which I have been coveting! I'm guessing enough shopping for now since I'm definitely satisfied with my buys! Right Ingrid??? :)
