Lessons From A Lie!

I often ask myself why it is that some people get off on tearing others down, or behaving in a manner that is no less than cruel. I always thought that gain of some description would drive them to this sort of behaviour, yet my experience has taught me that there are some disturbingly twisted personalities in the world who thrive on inflicting turmoil.

My most recent experience with someoneΒ who lured me to love when they had no intention of loving me in return, and made plans they had no intention of keeping, has taught me that this world needs more who are true and less who hide behind the mask of disguised lies.

It also made me think about what I could do to help others, to let them know that there are people in this world who care. People who want to put a smile on the face of a stranger instead of making someone feel as though they will never smile again.

I was blessed to grow up in a household of talented sewers who taught me, from five years old, to craft from fabric whatever I believed possible. I have made everything from wedding dresses and replicas gowns from Gone With The Wind to casual wear, costumes, soft furnishings, toys and even theatre props.

With my super talented mum, we are in the process of making patchwork quilts for the homeless, in hope to warm more than the heart of others in need.

I hope someone in your life makes it their mission to make you smile from the inside, out.
