Gothic & Lolita Bible

Last Tuesday was the release of the the 40th Gothic & Lolita Bible. When I first started buying these mooks I never thought that they would ever reach 40!

Disclaimer: I am in no way fluent in Japanese. I took 3 year of Japanese classes and am continuing to study on my own. I still have a lot of learn so if something is incorrect I am sorry.

Unhappiness

It is typical that the month I set aside for change and to inspire happiness as been one of the most unhappiest months for me. With a chaotic work schedule, illness in my family, and the recent issue with my paypal being hacked I have had little time and desire for personal change.

This month has definitely been a lesson in changing what I can and accepting what I cannot. I am happy with what little self change I was able to accomplish. Plus I did managed to finish a few more items from my 101 in 1001 days list! And I hope to finish the other items in the future.

I did receive a few e-mails wondering if I was going to stop Princessly Living and leave lolita/himegyaru. No way. I enjoy my blog and fashion too much. A true vegan would not stop because of sadness. Olympic athletes do not quit because life decides to play dirty. And I most certainly will never stop being me because of a few bumps in the road.

"No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change."
--Barbara de Angelis

So many people these days are unhappy. They loath their jobs, detest their body image, dislike their friends, and hate their material objects. People spend most of their energy on being negative but refuse to use any of their time to try to change what they are unhappy about.

The beginning of spring is supposed to be a happy and cheerful time. So this month I will focus on changing that which I am unhappy with and that I have the ability to change. This ties in with the personal development plan, PDP, I created. Some of the areas I am unhappy with are my weight, hair, and nails. Ever since I made that PDP I have been working toward achieving my short term goals. I have only managed to accomplish a few of the goals I set, but I am very happy. My nails are flaking less often and are longer, I have lost 15lbs, and cleared out numerous old pieces of clothing from my wardrobe. I also was very brave and had my hair cut two weeks ago. I have had many bad experiences with my hair so I rarely allow people to do anything to it. But my ends look healthier and my hair has grown most of the 3 inches back! ❤

I hope this spring will bring you happiness. And if it does not I hope you can change whatever it is that impedes on your happiness.
