Right now I feel so happy. I just feel so lucky.
I am very blessed to have amazing people around me.
Even when I was down, I had great friends/family who supported me every second.
The things I went through, I am glad it's all over and made it through.
I didn't let it get to me, well it almost did but I stayed strong.
Everyone goes through these times, just in different ways or sometimes the exactly the same...
So you're NOT alone :)!
Just move on, be strong and help other people who go through the same thing.

I love makeup and going shopping but I also LOVE cars and doing mixed martial arts! I think I've always been a little bit of a tom boy I guess.
When we lived back in Japan, there was a time when we had a special celebration and had to dress up in the traditional Japanese kimonos for a photo shoot. I was about 3 or 4 years old. My parents made me wear this bright red kimono with a Japanese detailing. ( I look at the photo now and it's so pretty! ) They also put this BIG flower thing in my hair with clipped on! I still remember it.. that hair piece hurt sooo much!! This big flower just clipped on a little bit of my hair and it killed! lol! I got so frustrated, I started crying and just starting to take EVERYTHING OFF. My parents were like "Mari, the photoshoot is very soon just keep it on for ONE photo and you can take it off." So I just waited and as soon as the photoshoot was over, I just stripped and took everything off! lol!
There was also a time when I absolutely HATED frilly stuff. Example: Table clothes with frills on the end, frilly skirt, ribbons etc.....
I have an older sister and she was a girly girl. Everything she wore was pretty much frilly skirts and cute girly clothes and pretty much all her clothes got passed down to me and I just cut them lol!! Apparently she got really upset because I cut her favourite skirt!
So anyways, I've always been a tom boy I guess..
But now that I'm older, I do like some frilly stuff.. and I love the Japanese kimonos, I think they are so beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!
